What is Castor Oil and how do you use it in a Castor Oil Pack?

What is castor oil?

Castor oil comes from the Castor oil Plant (Palma Christi or Ricinus communis L.) The part used: oil expressed cold drawn from the seeds without the aid of heat.

Castor oil packs have many uses – from supporting normal pelvic health, lung health, digestion, immune system support, and normal inflammation processes!

It is recommended to use the packs for at least 1 hour, 3 times a week for at least 3 months; and if improvement in symptoms is seen, reduce to once a week.

Caution: do not take castor oil internally.

How to apply a castor oil pack

Pour about 2 tablespoons of castor oil onto the center of the pack, attach elastic around abdomin and button at a tightness that is comfortable.

Put warm water (not boiling water) into a hot water bottle and place it inside the pouch (adjusting elastic if needed).

Keep the pack in place for 1-2 hours as required.

The lectins in castor oil absorb into the skin, adding 5 drops of lavender oil helps encourage relaxation.

As always, if symptoms persist, get worse or you would like to know more about how to help support your health – book in with your local naturopath or medical professional 🙂
