Of all our offerings, Chili CO2 needs using with the most caution. We do not recommend inhalation, or any sort of internal use. Topical use only. For prolonged topical use on adults we recommend using at a 0.1% dilution. For very temporary use on a small local area and for just a few days you might be able to go up to a 0.5% (one half of one percent) dilution, which is what we are offering.
When blending we urge the use of gloves, goggles, and facial mask to protect your mouth. Jim wore all of the above while measuring it in, and will probably pour it outside, to protect all of us from its fumes. Also, the manufacturer recommends warming the Chili CO2 extract to 104 ° Farenheit before using, to totally blend the components.
Why would anyone offer an oil with such obvious risks? Because, in proper dilution, Chili CO2 is an amazing remedy for localized neuropathic pain. It is a powerful skin irritant and needs use with caution, but in cases of nerve pain it may bring ease when nothing else does.
Side note, this extract is also available “decolorized” but we thought its angry red color might help remind you of its power, and the naturally occurring beta-carotene might help protect the skin.
Avoid use with children and during pregnancy. EXTREME skin irritant. DEFINITELY keep way from children, pets, anyone curious and unaware of its potency.
We are offering this potent extract in a 0.5% dilution in Fractionated Coconut oil. For long term use or for use on sensitive skin or larger portions of the body, please further dilute. One part of this Diluted CO2 to FOUR parts of your chosen carrier oil will give you the recommended 0.1% dilution.. Yes, it is this potent, and we want you to be safe.
Available full strength, undiluted, by special order. We are not comfortable making the undiluted extract available to the general public. If you have a use for it, or would prefer to dilute your own, please contact us. We are marking it Out of Stock in our shopping cart. It is not out of stock, but it also is not an oil for the casual user.
