Cayenne Pepper Flakes

Also Known As - Capsicum annuum

Organically Grown - Kauai, Hawaii - USA

Overview - Native to northeastern coastal areas of South America, these red hot peppers have been used in folk medicine since 7,000 BC.

  • The hot red cayenne chili arrived in the West from India in 1548 and was known as Ginnie pepper. Gerard describes it as "extreme hot and dry, even in the fourth degree," and he recommended it for a skin infection commonly known then as the King's Evil. Cayenne was popular with the 19th century physiomedicalists who used its warming properties for chills, rheumatism, and depression.

Medicinal Uses - A stimulating stomachic. A catalyst for all herbs. Improves circulation, aids digestion by stimulating gastric juices, stimulates the appetite, reduces inflammation, is a mild stimulant or tonic, improves metabolism, relieves gas, colds, chills, and stops bleeding from ulcers. Good for the kidneys, lungs, spleen, pancreas, heart, and stomach. Taken for nausea, scrofula, swollen lymph glands, rheumatism, arthritis, and pleurisy. Use with lobelia for nerves.

  • Recently, cayenne has been used successfully to treat patients with cluster headaches, a particularly painful type of headache.

Parts Used - Fruits.

Companion Plants - Chili peppers have root exudates that prevent root rot and other Fusarium diseases. Plant anywhere you have these problems. While you should always plant chili peppers close together, providing shelter from the sun with other plants will help keep them from drying out and provide more humidity. Tomato plants, green peppers, and okra are good protection for them. Teas made from hot peppers can be useful as insect sprays. Hot peppers like to be grouped with cucumbers, eggplant, escarole, tomato, okra, Swiss chard and squash. Herbs to plant near them include: basils, oregano, parsley and rosemary. Never put them next to any beans, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts or fennel.

  • Kloss's liniment: 2 oz. gum myrrh, 1 oz. goldenseal, 1/2 oz. cayenne pepper. Put this mixture in a quart of rubbing alcohol (do not take internally). Let it stand for a week or 10 days, shaking every day. This can be used wherever a liniment is used or needed. (heals wounds, bruises, sprains, scalds, burns, and sunburns. Apply freely. In pyorrhea, rinse mouth with liniment or apply liniment on both sides of                         the gums with a little cotton, Q-tip, or gauze.
