Cayenne pepper is no ordinary pepper. This deliciously spicy red-colored pepper is one of the most powerful herbs alive with very potent health benefits:
- Kills cancer prostate, leukemia, lung, and pancreatic cancer cells. That’s according to a University of Nottingham, England study.
- Helps heal varicose veins, hemorrhoids, and ulcer.
- Great for the heart and the cardio-vascular system.
- Has been proven to help heal wounds because of its anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
- Helps you lose weight.
In cooking, cayenne pepper is heated up and provides the spice in any dish.
But hold on, cayenne pepper isn’t only used for its health benefits and as an ingredient for cooking. It can also save your life. Yup, for self-defense!
Introducing, the Cayenne Pepper Spray!
Spray it on an intruder or a sexual predator and see how loudly they scream and how fast they run blindly toward a cement wall!
You will need to have the following:
- Thick rubber gloves
- Shirt with long sleeves
- Freshly-picked or freshly-packed cayenne peppers
- See-through jar with air-tight cover
- Fine-holed strainer
- Spray bottle
- Vegetable oil
- Organic vinegar
Now let’s begin:
- Wear your gloves, t-shirt, apron, and get down to chopping the cayenne peppers.
- Take as many cayenne peppers as you like but just make sure it will not reach half of the jar when being mixed with the other ingredients. Take the stems off and begin to finely dice the peppers.
- Get your jar ready. Place the chopped peppers and their seeds into the jar, pour in 1-½ cup of hot water, followed by ½ cup of white organic vinegar, and then seal with an air-tight jar cover. Let the mixture sit for 4 days while shaking it occasionally for the ingredients to completely blend in.
- After 4 days, prepare your spray bottle by pouring in 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil and a teaspoon of your favorite dishwashing liquid soap. Shake it until it reaches to an emulsion consistency.
- You may now open the jar to transfer its contents into your spray bottle. Take your funnel and place the stem into the bottle. Place a strainer over the mouth of the funnel to catch the skin and seeds and then pour in the cayenne pepper mixture.
- Shake and it’s good to go.
Your cayenne pepper spray should last for about a month or so, but if any abnormal discoloration occurs discard the bottle and its contents right away, and do so properly. Do not forget to label the bottle so you or anyone in your home won’t mistake it for something else. Do not deliberately smell the contents of your spray bottle. Most importantly, use it only when absolutely needed.
