There are all sorts of causes for painful muscles and joints ranging from physical exercise to various forms of arthritis and other illnesses. While heat can often help, the idea of using hot pepper in a salve might seem  crazy.  But there’s a reason that this type of salve can bring relief.


Hot peppers contain a component called capsaicin. Capsaicin is what gives peppers their hot taste. But capsaicin is also very effective at blocking pain signals to our brain. We have a neurotransmitter called Substance P, that communicates pain signals to our brain. Capsaicin blocks the transmission of pain by Substance P. That’s how a hot pepper salve works.

This is one of the simpler recipes for hot pepper pain salve.  Make sure you wear plastic gloves when making this recipe.  Click on the Homemade All-Natural Hot Pepper Pain Salve Recipe link below to see the recipe.
