How To Make A Cayenne Tincture

How To Make A Cayenne Tincture | Jill's Home Remedies | Cayenne is a beneficial herb for nutrition and as a home remedy. Here's how to make a tincture for convenient use! Last week, I wrote a post on how to survive a heart attack while it’s happening. Cayenne has been used over and over to stop heart attacks fast. It’s a great idea to keep cayenne on you everywhere you go in case you need it or happen upon someone that does.

You can keep a small pouch of cayenne powder or capsules with you in your wallet or purse, but you can also carry cayenne tincture.

Ways To Use A Cayenne Tincture

Cayenne may be effective for heart attacks, but there are also many other ways to use it as a home remedy and for good health.

Cayenne stimulates every cell in the body. It is also an astringent, antispasmodic, antibacterial, and excellent for the circulatory system. It contains minerals, vitamin C, and alpha-tocopherols, all of which are essential to good health. [1] Here are ways to use this herb:

  • Headaches – This is the way I use cayenne the most. I typically place cayenne powder in water and stir (read instructions here), but you can also place a few drops of cayenne tincture in water and consume it that way
  • Helps veins, capillaries, and arteries regain their elasticity.
  • Regulates blood flow from head to feet.
  • Acts as a catalyst for other herbs, which basically means that when you pair it with other herbs, it increases the effectiveness of those herbs.
  • Can lower blood pressure when combined with garlic.
  • Can heal arthritis.
  • Natural pain killer
  • Heals hemorrhoids
  • Aids digestion
  • Heals stomach ulcers 

To use a cayenne tincture for one of these internal ailments, simply add a few drops to a glass of water. Add more or less depending on how strong you need it. Some people may find that they need a stronger dose than others. Repeat a dose when needed. 

Add a few drops of cayenne tincture to other herbal tinctures as a catalyst to increase their effectiveness.

Add cayenne to salves, lotions, or coconut oil to apply externally for varicose veins, pain, arthritis, hemorrhoids, etc.

How To Make A Cayenne Tincture

 Making a tincture is very simple! All you need is cayenne peppers, vodka, and a jar. Making this with vegetable glycerin would not make as strong of a tincture as the alcohol because peppers are a hard herb and the alcohol does a much better job of breaking it down.

Ingredients

  • Cayenne peppers, fresh or dried
  • Vodka
  • Jar with lid

Directions

  1. Place cayenne peppers in a jar. If using fresh, fill the jar; if using dried peppers, fill the jar halfway. 
  2. Pour vodka over the peppers to the top of the jar, leaving a 2-inch headspace.
  3. Cover jar with a lid.
  4. Set jar in a dark, cool cabinet for 4-6 weeks.
  5. Shake the jar daily or at least once a week.
  6. After 4-6 weeks, strain the peppers from the liquid.
  7. Bottle the liquid and store in the cabinet.

Note: Alcohol tinctures are good for 2-5 years.

How to Survive a Heart Attack While It’s Happening

How To Survive A Heart Attack While It's Happening | Jill's Home Remedies | Learn how you can stop a heart attack in 60 seconds with this amazing herb!

A heart attack is a very painful and serious condition. Each year about 735,000 people suffers from a heart attack. [1]

I’ve had chest pains and numbness of my arm even within the last few months that made me wonder if I was having a heart attack. However, because I’m younger-ish and try to eat healthily and stay fit, I took the time to research my symptoms and realized I was suffering from Precordial Catch Syndrome. This syndrome is something I’ve suffered from off and on since a teenager, normally only a few times a year. It’s good to familiarize yourself with this condition if you have chest pains so that you know whether or not you’re dealing with something serious.

Because we live in a country where heart disease causes 1 in every 4 deaths [1], we need to be aware of the risks and causes of this life-threatening condition, as well as the ways to prevent and treat it.

Signs of a Heart Attack 

  • Pain, discomfort, pressure, or a feeling of squeezing in the center of the chest that does not go away quickly, or goes away and comes back.
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea
  • Cold sweat
  • Discomfort, pain, or numbness in arms, stomach, back, neck and/or jaw  [2]

The Real Cause of a Heart Attack 

The CDC lists these as causes for a heart attack: [1]

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Poor diet
  • Inactivity
  • Excessive alcohol use

How To Prevent a Heart Attack 

  • Exercise regularly
  • Eat a healthy diet. This means to avoid fast food, processed foods, and artificial sweeteners as much as possible. Drink lots of water, eat fresh fruits and vegetables in variety, healthy proteins and essential fatty acids, etc.
  • Reduce stress by getting enough sleep, managing time and activities, and taking herbs that reduce stress.
  • Consume herbs that promote a healthy heart, such as:
  1. Beet Root
  2. Hawthorne
  3. Cayenne
  4. Licorice Root
  5. Paprika

Cayenne is a powerful stimulant and increases needed oxygen to the brain, and is said to stop a heart attack in 60 seconds! [4] I’ve watched a video by Dr. Richard Schulze where he tells of going out to his parking lot and finding a patient of his unconscious in his car. Dr. Schulze administered cayenne tincture and the patient was saved from a heart attack.

Dr. John Christopher also testified that he never lost a patient to a heart attack because he always kept cayenne on hand. [4]

Cayenne is one of those must-have herbs to keep on hand for emergencies!

My Favorite Home Remedy for Migraines/Headaches

I’ve had problems with headaches and migraines off and on for years, (which I now believe is due to taking too many antibiotics) and most times I’ve had to take a pain reliever to get any kind of relief.  My headaches can turn into migraines, which include light sensitivity, loss of appetite, nausea, and even vomiting – and I have to do something quick for them when they get bad (because I hate to throw up! :))- which normally means taking pain relievers (which only damages my liver further).

I have discovered my favorite remedy for my migraines and headaches!

Since using this new remedy, I have not had to use any pain relievers to get rid of my headaches, no matter how bad they are!

My Favorite Home Remedy for Migraines/Headaches

What is this remedy? ~ Cayenne!
Cayenne-Pepper-LB  
Cayenne pepper increases blood circulation and immediately equalizes blood pressure, which relieves pressure in the head.  In the past, nothing has helped my bad migraines except unhealthy pain relievers…. until cayenne! I am so thankful for this herb!!!
What I do is very simple:
Place 1/2 tsp. of cayenne pepper in 8 oz. of water (hot or cold – if you use hot water, it will “steep” the cayenne and make the drink even hotter).
Sip the cayenne mixture until headache is gone.
*I also have a glass of cold water to sip along with the cayenne water to cool my tongue. :)*
In my experience, the headache has begun to disappear with the first sip.  With my worst migraine, it took about 5 sips to improve.  I continue to drink the cayenne water slowly until the mixture is gone.  You can repeat this later if the headache comes back (though mine never has).
Can you use any cayenne from the store for this remedy?  Cayenne bought from a grocery store shelf will not be as fresh, though it may work fine.  If you try store-bought cayenne and don’t have good results, try buying a fresh good-quality cayenne.  My favorite is from the Bulk Herb Store!

 The Bulk Herb Store is a company I know I can trust to sell me only the freshest, best quality herbs!  I love this store!

I would love to hear how this remedy works for you!
