Cayenne, or Capsicum, is one of the most important herbs because it's a wonderful healer. It acts like a catalyst when combined with other herbs. Cayenne is high in Vitamin C, so it builds up the body's immunity.
It improves the entire circulatory system. It stops bleeding internally and externally. It can be poured directly on an external wound to stop bleeding, fight infection, and promote healing. It may feel warm, but won't burn the skin.
It should be used with Lobelia for tetanus. It's a great gargle to heal sore throats, including the pain of Strep throat.
It's also great for asthma, Bronchitis, and chest congestion.

If you have a good quality Cayenne in your spice rack, use it. I think you'll prefer it in capsules. ;)

So informative! And yeah I'm glad that you mentioned the capsule form because I was thinking, "No way am I gargling with that stuff. OUCH!" ;)
