Cayenne pepper is one of the most effective natural pain relievers available to us. It works by blocking a neurotransmitter known as Substance P which is responsible for relaying information that results in what we know as pain.
Taken internally, cayenne is a great for us (if a little spicy!) but applied topically it is even better for pain relief.
Today I want to share a fantastic Cayenne Pain Relief salve from John over at Learning Herbs.com (the man behind the incredible videos). This salve is great for migraine headaches, aches, sore muscles, arthritis, menstrual cramps, bruises and shingles.
