    I make cayenne oil regularly. I actually have to strain off a batch today.

    I like blending it 50/50 with cottonwood bud oil for a joint & muscle salve. I think the cayenne helps the cottonwood bud penetrate better.

    @torey It sounds like I need to learn more about the cottonwood bud so I can try it your way too. Also, you mention better penetration..make me think of a cream that works so well for me many times is the emu oil..having said that, do you have a recepie that comes close to that for times of coming scarcity?
