Dr. Nick Notes
Chili CO2 extract is a potent extract with a lot of fire – just look at it’s radiant ruby hue! Chili (CO2) must be handled with caution due to its high levels of capsaicin that can cause irritation to the skin if not diluted, and definitely to the eyes! When diluted into a carrier oil at .1% or less, the massage oil can have pain relieving effects to the local area of application.
Chili may be supportive for neuropathic pain, especially in conjunction with Black Pepper & Helichrysum essential oils. Chili offers vasodilating properties increase blood flow and may help those with cardiovascular issues. Great for use in winter months to stimulate blood flow and increase core body temperature – only for use by the adventurous. Delicious in conjunction with chocolate, warm sauces and soups in culinary experimentation!
