BLACK PEPPER (Piper nigrum) MAY HELP YOU QUIT SMOKING

Rose J E and Behm F M. 'Inhalation of vapor from black pepper extract reduces smoking withdrawal symptoms'. Drug & Alcohol Dependence. 1994;34(3):225-9

Previous studies have suggested that sensory cues associated with cigarette smoking can suppress certain smoking withdrawal symptoms, including craving for cigarettes. In this study we investigated the subjective effects of a cigarette substitute delivering a vapor of black pepper essential oil. Forty-eight cigarette smokers participated in a 3-h session conducted after overnight deprivation from smoking. Subjects were randomly assigned to one of three conditions: one group of smokers puffed on a device that delivered a vapor from essential oil of black pepper; a second group puffed on the device with a mint/menthol cartridge, and a third group used a device containing an empty cartridge. Subjects puffed and inhaled ad libitum from the device throughout the session during which no smoking was allowed.

Reported craving for cigarettes was significantly reduced in the pepper condition relative to each of the two control conditions. In addition, negative affect and somatic symptoms of anxiety were alleviated in the pepper condition relative to the unflavored placebo. The intensity of sensations in the chest was also significantly higher for the pepper condition.

These results support the view that respiratory tract sensations are important in alleviating smoking withdrawal symptoms. Cigarette substitutes delivering pepper constituents may prove useful in smoking cessation treatment.

If anyone is trying to kick the habit Black Pepper is probably worth consideration. It would be simple to incorporate as a complementary therapy into your 'quit smoking regime'. It is suggested you put a room aside as a no smoking area and when you get a craving for a cigarette go there and vaporise just one or two drops of the essential oil suggested for a short while.

Other essential oils which you could try vaporising are Juniper Berry (Planet Sun and linked with protection, purification and healing) and Frankincense (Planet Sun, Element Air and associated with breaking ties with the past).

Smoke Less Aromatherapy Inhaler

According to the American Lung Association, “Smoking-related diseases claim an estimated 430,700 American lives each year. Smoking costs the United States approximately $97.2 billion each year in health-care costs and lost productivity. It is directly responsible for 87 percent of lung cancer cases and causes most cases of emphysema and chronic bronchitis.” It is estimated that three out of four smokers seek to quit, but fewer than five percent who quit for a day are able to maintain that for longer periods of time.

The pure essential oils used in the Smoke Less Scent Inhaler were selected by Earth Solutions specifically for their known benefits in helping to resist the urge to smoke, making it easier for you to quit smoking.

The blend for the Smoke Less Scent Inhaler comprises: Lemon: Builds determination. Pine: Refreshing and cleansing. Eucalyptus: Relaxes respiratory muscles.

"As I breathe in eucalyptus, lemon and pine, I feel the strength to give it up."
