For general aches and pains, mix cayenne pepper powder with your favorite hand and body lotion. Keep adding the cayenne powder until the mixture is a pink color. Mix well. Then apply to the body area, of the ache or pain that is bothering you. After a few days if you still have the aches or pains, then go to a doctor. Wear latex gloves while mixing and applying this mixture, as you won't want to rub your eyes or nasal area afterwards.

Insects are often repelled from capsaicin. Using cayenne pepper for termites is a common way to make them uncomfortable in your home.
My friend told me that sprinkling hot cayenne pepper on plants will keep away animals and insects that will eat them. Is this true? And if so, do you sprinkle the whole plant?
