Yes, chilli is not just something we put into food! Chilli Seed Essential Oil has believed medicinal benefits too!
The Oil is made through steam distillation of the Capsicum Annum or Chilli seeds. As you might well expect, it has warming / heating properties.
The compound Capsaicin, which occurs naturally in Chilli Essential Oil, helps to boost circulation and acts as a natural analgesic which makes it a great option for helping to relieve sore and painful muscles and joints.
It is also believed to be a natural remedy for stimulating hair growth, healing wounds and reducing pain from insect bites.
We use it in our 30ml Amazonian Muscle Rubs and our 60ml Amazonian Muscle Rubs to provide a gentle warming heat to soothe sore and achy muscles.
