Native to India, the black pepper plant grows to about 10 feet in height and has clusters of small white flowers. As the berries ripen, they turn from green to orange to red. After the berries are picked, they are left in the sun to dry, which turns their color to black. Derived from the partially dried, unripe fruit, Black Pepper essential oil is extracted through steam distillation.

Perhaps this same property is why it is reputed to be a synergistic catalyst for many other essential oils.
