Schinus terebinthifolius (Anacardiacee)

Origin: Brazil

Native to the tropical and subtropical zones of South America (especially Argentina, southeastern Brazil and Paraguay), it is also called "Brazilian pepper" or "False pepper". It is a shrub that can grow over ten metres tall and has oval toothed leaves and small white flowers gathered in bunches; it is a botanical species that is very appreciated from the ornamental point of view owing both to the elegant foliage and the decorative fruits constituted by aromatic scarlet berries (when ripe). By contrast, thanks to its remarkable adaptability to different environments (it is found from dunes to swamps), it is a plant that is feared because of its tendency to invade the natural habitat of other native species, until replacing them.


The essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the ripe berries. It is a pale-yellow liquid with an unmistakable sweetish, fresh, spicy fragrance with a woody undertone. It combines well with the essential oils of: Cinnamon leaf, Clove, Mastic, Nutmeg, Sweet myrrh, Oregano, Mountain pine, Ravensara and Storax.

(according to popular herbalist tradition)

Essential oil of pink pepper, non-toxic but slightly irritating, has analgaesic, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and febrifugal properties; it should be used with caution on the skin as it may give rise to sensitisation: hence it is a good rule to always convey it with a vegetable oil (for example Sweet almond oil or Sesame oil).
Using a diffuser,this natural extract can act as a mood tonic (sedative), even helping control tenacious addictions like smoking.

It is used infrequently as a fragrance ingredient in perfumes, cosmetics and soaps with a woody-spicy note, and frequently as a substitute for black pepper oil. In South America it is used mainly in agriculture as a noble ingredient in natural pesticide formulations.
