How to make an oil with analgesic action

It is very easy to make a homemade cream to alleviate all these pains. In addition we can even grow the peppers in pots.

The cayenne peppers that we are going to use must be dry, for that we take fresh peppers, cut them the top and then lengthwise in half and put them on a wire tray in a dark and well-ventilated place to dry. When they are completely dry (it will depend on the conditions in which they have been), which can take between a week to three, we will make our cream.

Need:

  • Sliced ​​cayenne peppers
  • Olive oil (you can also use almonds, avocado, argan …)
  • A glass jar

preparation:

In the glass jar add the cayenne peppers. They should not occupy more than 3/4 of the jar. Then fill the jar with the oil and make sure the peppers are completely covered.

Also, if you wish, you can add some medicinal plant to personalize this cream. For example, ginger is very beneficial to improve blood circulation and also has analgesic action. Another option would be to add arnica.

Now you have two options: put the jar in a saucepan with a little water and leave it there for 2 hours over low heat; Or leave it between 10 and 15 days in a cool area without light so that it infuses little by little. It depends on how fast you are to use it.

Strain the oil, drain the peppers well to take advantage of the oil they may contain, and store it in a glass jar. This oil can be used in the next 6 months.

To use your homemade oil with analgesic action, you just have to apply it by giving a gentle massage. It can be used several times a day. This oil is for external use only, it should not be ingested.
