Does anyone have a recipe for homemade capsicum arthritis cream?


It costs $12 dollars or more in the drug store, which makes no sense to me since the active ingredient is cayenne pepper! On the other hand, I don't want to put in too much chili pepper and cause myself severe pain . . .

    Thanks! I'm also wondering whether heating a little in oil would activate the pepper, as that what happens in cooking.

    Thanks, that is good to know. And I suspect the commercial creams probably go a long way. I like tiger balm, but it is strong-smelling and not all that long-lasting.

    I've researched diet & I'm doing the best I can there, but more herbs may help.
