Health and Beauty Uses

While most of Don Juan Chiles’ products are focused on cooking, some of our ingredients are often used for other purposes — especially for health and beauty. Here, we’d like to discuss the benefits of three key products: alum rock, cayenne pepper, and rosemary.

Alum Rock

Alum rock (also known as potassium alum) is a natural mineral salt that has been used for centuries for various purposes. Some people believe that it has antiseptic and astringent properties that can be beneficial for skin health. It’s commonly used as a natural deodorant as it can inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria. Additionally, alum rock is believed to help soothe razor burn and reduce skin irritation.

Cayenne Pepper

The DIY Cayenne Pepper mask is a popular at-home beauty treatment that’s been gaining popularity in recent years. It’s suggested that the capsaicin in cayenne pepper can help stimulate blood circulation and increase hair growth. However, it’s important to note that the use of cayenne pepper on the scalp can cause a burning sensation, and people with sensitive skin should approach this treatment with caution.


Rosemary is a fragrant herb that’s frequently used in cooking flavorful dishes, but it also benefits hair health. Some people believe that rosemary oil can help improve hair growth, prevent dandruff, and soothe an itchy scalp. While there isn’t enough scientific evidence to support these claims, many people have reported positive results from using rosemary oil for their hair.
