Chili oil is a popular preparation of a vegetable oil that has been infused with chili peppers. Chili peppers are the (typically dried) fruit from plants in the Capsicum genus, and while these peppers originated in Mexico, this oil is now available globally, and various cultivars of chili peppers are grown in countries all around the world. Although most commonly used in culinary applications, often in Asian countries and cuisine, chili oil can also be used for a vast array of medical conditions, due to its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Chili peppers are rich in the active ingredient capsaicin, which can have a profound impact on the body.
Chili peppers have been a part of the human diet in the Americas since at least 7500 BCE. The most recent research shows that chili peppers were domesticated more than 6000 years ago in Mexico, in the region that extends across southern Puebla and northern Oaxaca to southeastern Veracruz, and were one of the first self-pollinating crops cultivated in Mexico, Central and parts of South America.
