DIY Capsaicin Cream

Make your own Capsaicin cream

Capsaicin is the chemical component in hot peppers that makes them taste spicy. It is also a clinically proven and safe topical therapy for pain relief for arthritis and joint tenderness. Capsaicin binds to nerve receptors and initially causes a burning, tingling sensation, which is followed by an analgesic effect or the blocking of pain. Want to make your own inexpensive capsaicin cream? The recipe is simple.

Things You'll Need

  • Trinidad Scorpion Moruga chili powder
  • Sunflower or canola oil
  • Saucepan
  • Stove
  • Cheese cloth
  • Storage jar
  • Beeswax


    • 1
      Combine two tbsp. of Trinidad Scorpion Moruga powder with two cups of sunflower or canola oil in a saucepan.
    • 2
      Heat the combination on low on a stove top for two hours to allow it to combine fully. Stir every 15 minutes to aid in the mixing.
    • 3
      Strain the mixture through a cheese cloth into a storage jar. The jar should have a lid so that you can safely store the cream.
    • 4
      Add 1 ½ oz. of beeswax to give the mixture the consistency of a cream. Cover the jar with the lid to store.
    • 5
      Rub the cream on sore joints and muscles.
How Capsaicin Fights Pain
I don’t have to tell you that if you rub a hot pepper on the skin, it burns. The capsaicin in the pepper triggers the release of chemicals along nerves that relay pain signals back to the brain. So far, pretty obvious. But what’s different about the capsaicin is it gets those chemicals to fire so much and so often that the chemical becomes depleted. No chemical, no pain.
So the first two things you should know about using capsaicin are:
  1. It’s going to really burn the first few times you put it on.
  2. It takes a day or two, sometimes more, before it depletes the chemical and begins to relieve your underlying pain.

Pure Capsaicin

Pure Natural Pepper Capsaicin Crystal 3, 6, 12, 16 million Scoville Heat Units ( SHU)

A very difficult-to-obtain product of the highest purity and quality - offered at unbeatable prices. Firehousechilli is offering Capsaicin extracted from naturally grown Capsicum annuum hot peppers, a material which is far more expensive and difficult to isolate than the synthetic capsaicin. Our Pure Capsaicin Crystals are of the highest purity available for your own uses.

Uses For Pure Capsaicin :

Pure Capsaicin is not particularly soluble in water, but will easily dissolve in oils and fats. You could easily create a superior fire-oil to flavour dishes without imparting a unwanted vinegar or hot peppery flavor, by dissolving a very small quantity of Capsaicin in a large volume of oil (Vegetable, Olive, Sesame, etc).If you are true chili head and want an oil as hot as the Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Chili Pepper) which ranges from 800,000 - 1,000,000 Scoville heat units, to drop sparingly in chili dishes or other foods you want to make spicy, then 100mg in 2 grams of oil should be sufficient to give it a rating of 800,000 Scoville heat units.

In very small amounts , it can be used to spice up flavourful sauces that aren't as spicy as you would like, or to produce in the manufacture of your own "thermonuclear" hot sauces or salsas. Be sure to shake/stir it extensively and let it sit for a while to allow the Capsaicin to dissolve (it doesn't dissolve easily in aqueous solutions) and diffuse throughout the product. You can also mix with oil put in microwave for 15 seconds for the capsaicin to dissolve quicker.

It melts at between 144 and 149 degrees Fahrenheit, so aqueous mixtures at this temperature should allow for ideal homogenization of Capsaicin within your projects. It could also potentially be used as a deterrent to rodents and other mammalian pests.
