Spice up your Health

Did you know that an extract from the cayenne pepper, capsaicin, can be used to treat pain, such as that found in arthritis and lower back pain?  A simple, home solution is to add some ground cayenne pepper (found in your favorite store's spice area) to your favorite body lotion.  Massage a small amount to the area causing you discomfort.

Be sure to keep this mixture away from your face, especially your eye area.  Do not forget to wash your hands really well before touching your face once this has been applied.

If using the mix on your hands, I recommend covering your hands with plastic gloves and allow the mixture to remain on your hands for as long as possible.
