Homemade Cayenne Salve....

Last night I made some cayenne salve for sore and aching muscles and bruises. I got the recipe from 
I've been spending a lot of time on this sight since Christmas when Tory got the Wildcraft game from Santa. We love the game! Please wear gloves while making this salve! You don't want to get any in your eyes or mouth because it is some seriously potent stuff! Although I would have liked to let the cayenne hang out in the oil a bit longer, it still turned out quite well. I also used a higher BTU cayenne which maybe made up for that. That recipe can be found here

I didn't get a chance to work on my mittens to much yet. I am still deciding how I want to shape them at the fingertips.


  1. wow, cayenne salve?! would it be sort of like tiger balm? very cool.
    and that mitten is coming along nicely.

    1. also, where on the site is the recipe? thanks


      There's your link. Looks like I goofed. Sorry :)

  2. The salve is a bit like Tiger Balm but nothing beats Tiger Balm! I love that stuff!
