At first I was iffy on buying this tincture, however I have been using this in my coffee at least 5-6 drops and Im good to go. Love it! Pairs wonderfully. Have also used this for muscle and joint pains topically...we used the Raw body butter and up to 8 drops of the Cayenne. Massaged into the skin. Pain was at a 6 within 30 mins that pain subsided.
Tincture - Cayenne Pepper
Love this product. Along with Cinnamon Tincture and Sencha Green Tea, I have found a natural headache reliever.
The perfect touch to coffee or quick heat to a recipe.
Another one of the tinctures I use every day in my coffee. I like the slight bite taste and find it works as described.
