Where can I get capsaicin cream at more than usual .1% strength? I need something strong against the leg pain. Which company makes the stuff?
Most companies take the safe road, with relatively low strength cream. I would advise that you make your own–it’s quite easy and you can adjust the heat to your liking.
Infused Habanero Salve
2 tablespoons habanero powder (or more or less to adjust the heat)
2 cups sunflower oil (or canola oil)
1 1/2 ounces beeswax
In a saucepan, combine the powder and the oil. Cook over low heat for about 2 hours. Strain throught a cheesecloth into a clear jar. To make a salve, add the beeswax and stir.
