Capsaicin is found in hot peppers and can cause intense burning sensations when touched to the skin or inhaled.

Does Onion Spray Work?

  • The active ingredient in pepper spray, capsaicin, is a substance that is present in the chili peppers that many people think of as hot pepper. The capsaicin in these peppers is responsible for the sensation of heat and irritation when touched.
  • Capsaicin is also found in red onions and other foods which have sulfur compounds that break down the effects of capsaicin on the skin.
  • In our study, we compared people who had been sprayed with pepper spray from an aerosol can to those who had received only a placebo (a fake pepper spray). We found that those who had been sprayed with onion spray were able to walk farther away from the spray than those who had received only a placebo even though they were still experiencing irritation from the spray.
  • Our study tested whether or not onion-infused water could help alleviate symptoms caused by exposure to capsaicin through inhalation (i.e., not just through skin contact). We wanted to know if onions would work better than plain water because garlic has already been shown to work both as an antiseptic and an anti-inflammatory agent.
  • Our results showed that onion water was more effective than plain water at reducing symptoms caused by exposure to capsaicin through inhalation (vomiting, coughing, mucous production). However, there was no difference between plain water and plain onion juice (which contains fewer sulfur compounds than garlic does), so it’s best not to use onion juice as a treatment for capsaicin-induced symptoms.

How To Make Onion Spray

  1. Grind one or two red onions in a blender until they are the consistency of baby food.
  2. Scoop out a small amount of the blended onion and add it to a spray bottle.
  3. Fill the bottle with water, shake and cap tightly.
  4. If you want your spray to have an extra kick, add 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (or more or less depending on how hot you want your spray).
