The Capsaicin content in our Chili Pepper Co2 Total extract oil is above 29%, a remarkably high amount! This supercritical Co2 extraction of organic grown whole chili peppers has a deep rich red color.  

Chili Pepper is an interesting aromatherapy oil when used in careful dilution for skin applications.  The recommended dilution amount in carrier oil should be no greater than 0.1% to 0.5%.  To put these percentages into perspective, 0.1% is 3 DROPS PER OUNCE OF CARRIER OIL and 0.5% dilution is 3 DROPS PER FIVE OUNCES OF CARRIER OIL.   Linda White, MD, writes in her book co-authored with Steven Foster "The Herbal Drugstore" that there are medical conditions treated with Capsaicin, the component in chili peppers responsible for their heat; among these are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, diabetic neuropathy, bursitis, fibromyalgia and shingles. In another publication written especially for senior citizens it is listed as long-term pain relief when properly diluted.

Carrier oils for dilution include Castor Oil for its ability to penetrate deeply into skin layers with Sandalwood Seed for its anti-inflammatory properties.  An analgesic blend of 0.1-0.5% Chili Pepper Co2 blended in Castor and Sandalwood Seed could be beneficial to muscular and arthritic related aches and pains.

Aromatherapy use:  analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, arthritis, astringent, bactericidal, bruises, bursitis, diabetic neuropathy, fibromyalgia, shingles

General use:  specialized massage blends; lotion, cream and ointment preparations

Contraindications: Chili Pepper Co2 is a mucous membrane irritant and strong skin sensitizer.  Keep away from eyes, children and pets!  Not advised for dermal application  greater than 0.1-0.5% dilution.
