Product Abstract: The chili pepper, a hotly pungent variety of Capsicum was first cultivated by the people of Central and South America in around 3000 BC. Columbus brought the seeds back to Europe in 1493, and from there it spread throughout the entire world as a favoured spice for cooking. The oil is derived by passing steam through the seeds - the source of the most intense spice. Chili Seed Essential Oil has capsaicin, as one of its main components, and also capsicina, capsanthin, oligoalimenti, lecithin, Vitamin C and flavonoids.

Rating: Invigorating and warming in a balm for inflammatory pain. I've even used the balm when I'm feeling cold and can't get warm. Works so well mixed with ginger and black pepper. Lovely for cold winter nights.

Rating: This oil is so therapeutic and so warming but it's also very rough if it gets into the eyes especially as a vapour. With that said, this is the only oil that seems to make hair grow so far and it also helps with toothache and other pains immediately.

Rating: This may be the most must have essential oil. Granted, it's not easy at all to take but therein lies its power. This is Chilly Seed/Capsaicin and it gets hot and painful and itchy at first but it leads to remarkable healing afterwards.
I took it for hair growth but I found out directly that it works much better for psoriasis that I have . Well I think that is understatement, this oil is a cure for psoriasis and pretty much any other chronic condition.This is not just me thinking , there is a lot of material out there on the unique healing properties of Capsaicin/Chilly Seed/Chilly Peppers. Basically Capsaicin shuts down all the inflammatory mediators like Substance P, CGRP,TNF and others that are involved in any chronic condition like psoriasis/cancer/arhritis/diabetes/blood pressure and produces relaxation through the release of endorphins. Anything that involves pain, Chilly Seed EO is probably the best cure out there.
I take it whole and unadultered. It's rather thick so it takes hours to absorb but as a benefit it does stay much longer in the body. I feel warmth for at least 24 hours afterwards. The smell is nothing but it makes me cough every time I take it at first. Even though I try not to put it near eyes , it does get in and it's painful but nothing serious , just use carrier oil or milk to remove it. This version has 0.1-0.5 Capsaicin which according to Scoville scale is about 16000-80000 units which is similar to Cayenne Pepper. It stings at first but it goes away .
The most challenging part is taking it off as not all oil get absorbed even after 6 hours so I remove it shampoo but then it gets all over and it stings really strong.The temptation to use the cold water and open the windows make it even hotter. Basically I get so hot that I can go out on the balcony naked at -10 and feel like I am in Cuba.Even when you remove it there is vapor and some remnants that sticks around so I can easily touch my eyes and it stings again. It's crimson red in color so you have to be careful not to stain anything especially with psoriasis when you apply it everywhere on the body.
All in all, this is probably the most therapeutic EO there is but probably should not be mixed with anything . It's affordable and thus could solve any health issues there is . The only challenge is application but if you see the benefits , this challenge is easy.

Rating: I tought about smelling the bottle and it was hot !
This is deep red both in smell and appearance ; it does not smell particularly stigny as it's nutty and light, this part of the oil gives an interesting support to a more active smell. The other part is more sirupy (very thick) actives like capsaicin and capsaicinoids which is exactly what one would love of such an oil. It is unbeatable in topical muscle ache application, it goes deep and numbs pain as it enhances circulation. This is a truely wonderful quality product again from mexico ! Very high quality, very spicy ! Irritant to mucous membranes, wash hands after massaging with this oil, and do not massage for too long as hands will become oversaturated ; use very diluted !
