What are the Benefits of Castor Oil?

Castor Oil has been used both internally and externally for thousands of years. Castor oil has been shown to increase circulation and promote elimination and healing of tissues and organs underneath the skin.


It is particularly effective in being absorbed into lymph circulation which can improve digestion, immune function, and reduce swelling in injured joints and extremities.


It has also been specifically used in cases of menstrual irregularities, uterine fibroid cysts, and ovarian cysts. It can strengthen & nourish reproductive tissues.


Muscle and Joint Pain Relief: The anti-inflammatory properties of Castor Oil make it an excellent massage oil for relieving arthritic joints, rheumatism, gout, nerve inflammations, and sore muscles and joints.


Menstrual Disorders, Fibroids and Cysts: Castor oil is very effective in decreasing the pain and inflammation associated with menstrual disorders and in decreasing or eliminating fibroids and cysts. The ricinoleic acid, present in Castor oil, is emenagogue in nature and helps open menstruation in cases of delayed, painful or stopped menstruation. Either the standard castor oil pack or the direct application method can be used.
