Pepper Spray is a valuable self-defense weapon. Both women and men can benefit from carrying it. They come in a variety of strengths and sizes. Some are disguised as womenís lipstick or even a ring that you can wear. Pepper spray is priced so anyone can afford it. Fend off your attacker while you are jogging, on a date, and in any violent act towards you. Pepper spray can be used against dogs, bears, and human attackers.

Pepper spray usually comes in the form of aerosol with an active ingredient known as OC (oleoresin capsicum), which is Chile peppers. The heat of the Chile peppers is determined by the amount of capsicum in it. Capsicum is 15,000,000 Scoville units when pure, with it being between 2,000,000 to 5,000,000 in majority of pepper sprays. If you are a big jalapeno pepper eater, you eat them at just 5,000 Scoville units, so imagine what it would be like to ingest pepper spray.

When pepper spray is used on an attacker, it inflames mucous membranes such as the personís nose, eyes, throat and lungs. This causes the attacker to instantly close their eyes and they could temporarily loose their sight. They also may encounter breathing problems from the pepper spray being so pungent. These effects can last 30 to 40 minutes or even longer depending on how much the strength is. This is the best self-defense weapon because once the attacker is incapacitated, you can quickly flee. You do not have to worry about causing permanent damage to someone. The effects are temporary.

Once you have purchased pepper spray, practice with it. This way if you are faced with the situation of having to use it, you will be prepared. Aim it away from your face and arms. Practice aiming so that if need be, you will know how to aim at the attackerís face. Remember that if you need to use it, try to aim quick and back away so that the spray doesnít hit you. If you do get some on you it may burn. Water will not help, so use milk or sour cream to help ease the sensation. If you get some spray in your eyes, blink as much as possible. The effects should ease 30 to 40 minutes afterwards, depending on how much you came in contact with.

Pepper spray is legal in America, but a few states have restrictions, so before purchasing be sure to check what your state allows. Owning pepper spray is not only inexpensive; it has saved lives! It is great for the elderly, men, women, and even families. It is simple to use, conceal, and carry in your purse, pocket or jacket. If you do not own one yet, order some today so you will have the right protection incase need be.
