Penetrating Hot Pepper Ginger Oil


Penetrating Hot Pepper Ginger Oil is an intensely warming therapy for relieving arthritic pain, joint stress, and useful for reducing low-level inflammation. If you have tried over the counter remedies, this member of our Beautiful Body Oils collection is the one most similar to a topical preparation sold in your local drugstore. Just as the name implies, Penetrating Hot Pepper Ginger Oil has a slight warming effect when applied topically. We created this heat from organic peppers, using the hottest peppers we could find, paired with organic ginger, a known aid in the reduction of inflammation.  We then begin the long process of warming these ingredients.  We want the capsaicin, which is one of the active constituents of the capsicum annum pepper, to fully merge with the healing benefits of ginger. Finally, we add essential oils as therapeutic aids; we choose only those oils known for their healing properties. We never add commercial fragrances to complicate things.   

Massage generously into affected joints for penetrating heat and relief of the affected area. To create an especially effective treatment, apply oil to the affected area; afterward, you will want to cover that area with a cotton wrap of some sort and let the oil work for several hours. You can make a handmade cover at home by cutting the toe off of clean socks and slipping on like a tube.

We will add a pair of white gloves to your package as a gift if needed, drop us a line to request a pair of cotton gloves when you place your order, then wear these each time you apply the oil.

  • Best Topical Pain Reliever I ever Tried.....

    Posted by Louise Harmon on 5th Nov 2018

    When I first tried Karen’s Botanicals’ Penetrating Hot Pepper Ginger Oil, I was disappointed. I rubbed it into my sore muscles expecting to feel a bit of a burn or sting from the hot pepper & ginger, but I felt nothing. I thought that it wasn’t going to work UNTIL…. about 30 minutes later…. when I noticed that my muscle pain was gone. It continues to be my go-to product for sore muscles & achy joints. I recommended it to our massage therapist who now uses it with her clients. I recently discovered it was quite helpful for relieving the neuropathic pain in my hands & feet following chemotherapy. A truly great product!

  • Great Product

  • Even my parrot is onto my shoulder already and nicely content and mellow - think she knows too, February 28, 2017

    I received the 8 OZ earlier today and applied it to the neck, shoulder, hip - all the key spots after a long day out taking the world in - I have to be honest... if you want to surrender and be enveloped in the most soothing, fluid essence and magical aroma, this is the winning formula - aches have greatly eased and the aura of the pepper and ginger merge in lovely duet. Even my parrot is onto my shoulder already and nicely content and mellow - think she knows too?

    I received this 2 weeks ago and cannot believe the relief I get when I use this on my knees. I have knee pain from a touch of arthritis and this takes it away! I'm amamzed! I've shared it with a friend who has shoulder pain and she said within 5 minutes she was able to raise her arm and turn her head. I would recommend this product without doubt!!!

  • Pain-relieving dream

    Feels really nice on my skin, and is a soothing and penetrating pain relief. I have been using it on my knees and on my wrists, with good results. Love the scent too.
