It actually isn't too bad. Unfortunately we somehow ran out of cayenne, so idk if it will help enough *crosses fingers* , I really despise summer colds ..!

Wow, I had to use 3/4 cup of water cause it was to tangy!! THE heat didn't bother me. I have been doing a sinus flush with cayenne. Have had a chronic sinus infection for like ever!! I will try anything to get rid of it!

It was too strong for me...just a few sips made me feel sick to me stomach. However, just breathing it in for a minute relieved my sinus headache.

Whoa. I did 3/4 cup of water instead of just 1/4 cup and it was still super hot, but after two sips my sinuses started opening up. Actually tastes pretty good aside from my mouth being on fire.
