Pippali, also known as Indian Long Pepper, is traditionally dried and used as a seasoning, tasting similar to black pepper, but hotter. For thousands of years, Ayurvedic practitioners have championed Pippali as one of the top Rasyana, or life-extending, herbs. Applied topically, long pepper is a great way to bring blood and healing lymph fluids to your sore and tired muscles and joints. Pippali is one of the most active ingredients in our house-made Muscle Melt liniment.
