Botanical Name:  Capsicum frutescens

Known as a counter-irritant, cayenne extract can be used to relieve pain and stimulate healing of chronic or old injuries that never healed.

To use it for this purpose, it should be diluted to a 4% to 20% dilution, and applied topically directly on the injury.  It will stimulate circulation for healing, and relieve chronic pain, but may feel very “hot” on the skin surface.  It is best to start with a low dilution and go higher if necessary, until one is familiar with the burning sensation it creates.

Cover the area with saran wrap and allow it to sit for an hour or even over night.  I have seen a man in his 50’s heal an old football injury from high school, one that he thought would never go away, by using this counter-irritant method.

Other uses for cayenne include arthritis, bruises, bursitis, fibromyalgia and shingles.  Experience shows that, especially for senior citizens it is helpful for providing long-term pain relief.  It can be applied in a low dilution over joints, bones, and muscles for this purpose.

People should be aware that they must not touch eyes or eyelids until the cayenne is completely gone from their hands, as even a small amount can irritate the eyes.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO DILUTE THIS PRODUCT for any type of usage!  Our source produces an extract containing about 2.9% to 3.5% capsaicin, which gives the extract its hot and stimulant effects.  Most capsaicin cremes are available in concentrations of .025% to .075%.   This means that you could make a dilution with 75% jojoba and 25% cayenne, and it would still contain .875% capsaicin.  Even at this level, it would be advisable to dilute again for topical use.
