Cayenne Pepper (Capsicum)

Cayenne Pepper is one of the diverse herbs one should have in the Apothecary. Cayenne Pepper health benefits go far beyond just adding spice to your food. For example, if you have a tincture of cayenne pepper and someone near you is having a heart attack; you can pour it down the victims throat and it will stop the heart attack. Yes, their mouth will be on fire but that episode would be stopped. Cayenne Pepper also is good for the blood. It aids in purifying the blood from free radicals and toxins. Let me just list a few of the things this herb can do:

Pain Reliever

Blood Builder

Aids with internal bleeding

Balances Blood Pressure

Aids in circulation

Aids in digestion

Use as part of eyewash

Aids in gum & oral health

Heart Tonic

Insect repellant


Helps against Ulcers

Cayenne Pepper is a must have herb and you must have discretion on how to apply it. It is hot, very hot. You may need to dilute it with 4 to 8 ounces of water or with honey. Sometimes it takes a simple herb to remedy everyday issues.
