This may be of interest to those who grow hot peppers.

Spicy peppers contain a substance called capsaicin. Devised by Wilbur Scoville in 1912, a Scoville Unit is a measurement of capsaicin level in a particular pepper or variety. The scoville ranges from 1 to 10 with ten being the the most hot.

As a matter of interest, I recently had a sore back which was greatly eased by a new product here (dont know the name , sorry) which is based on capsicum. I thought it was only good for police spray.

Products like Capsazin are dangerous and, given all the horror stories online about its use, I am surprised they have not yet been sued. I have some arthritis in my feet and applied it as directed and the result was excruciating pain for well over 8 hours and that was with constant water rinsings. Unfortunately, I learned about its dangers the hard way. It was nothing short of chemically burning myself.

Yes, I must admit, that I felt that I would end up with blisters on my back. However, I must admit that I have had no pain since which is unusual.
