Hot peppers are very well-known for their beneficial properties. They’re extremely healthy, but we’re sure that you did not know that you can make medicinal oil out of them! The preparation is super easy!
The oil is made from red hot chili peppers and helps against radiculitis, myositis, neuralgia, rheumatism and joint pains. This oil belongs to the group of warming oils. It has a stimulant action on any part of your body: expands the capillaries, increases the blood circulation in the upper parts of the skin, enhances the vitamin metabolism and works to activate the regenerative process of the skin epidermis.
For this recipe, you need:
- 10 fresh red hot chili peppers
- 2 cups of cold pressed olive oil
- A 1-liter glass jar
First, wash the peppers and cut off the part where the stalk is. Then grind them in a grinder. You should get about one cup of finely powdered mixture. Put this powdered mixture into a clean glass jar and pour oil over it. Leave it to stay in a dark place (such as in the lower parts of the kitchen units, for example).
Strain the contents of the jar through gauze or a plastic strainer after 7 days. The peppers that have left can be kept in the refrigerator and used as a food additive, while the reddish oil used for rubbing onto the skin. When you start, use the oil to perform massages several times a day, for example, when you have joint pain or pain in other parts of the body. After rubbing, wear socks or tights to warm up the place if it is about feet.
You can also warm up other parts of the body, depending on the location of the pain: hands, neck or back. You will feel a burning sensation inside your skin after applying the oil, but it will be tolerable, even pleasant, because the oil will warm the skin deeply, without creating burns. You can reduce the intensity of applying this oil when time passes. After a month or two, the procedure can be done once a week. If your joint pain or any type of chronic pain occurs because of weather changes, feel free to repeat it more than once. Store the oil in a dark place.
