Castor oil is an age-old remedy, which has
been used in almost every culture.
Most adults today will remember lining up
with their siblings for the mandatory spoonful of castor oil.
Castor oil is obtained from castor beans or
seeds. It's a triglyceride which has three fatty acids and glycerol. It contains 90 percent ricinoleic acid, which is responsible for its organic healing properties, including its
ability to treat the lymphatic system.
I know people, who swear by a castor oil
cleanse. While I respect their fortitude, I am not a fan of drinking castor oil as cleanse. I ditched it, because it’s a full day ordeal of being held hostage at
home. On the other hand, the Castor Oil Pack is more convenient to use and has immediate and
When it comes to my diet, I try to walk “the straight
and narrow” as much as the next person. But sometimes, I have moments of weakness when I succumb to a craving for some delicacy or other.
Unfortunately, these so-called
delicacies are not always charitable. When my “Gotta' Live a Little” mentality kicks in, late night
indulgences turn into late night indigestions. Moments like these, the mighty Castor Oil Pack comes in handy.
Those late night indigestions et al. tremble in
the presence of the mighty Castor Oil Pack. No match!
About the Castor Oil Pack &
The Castor Oil Pack (on display) is a square piece of
muslin fabric about 4x4 square inches ready to be socked in Castor oil. (If you have
Castor oil handy, you can also make the pack yourself easily.)
After you put the Castor oil pack on your skin, cover
it with the sheet of plastic provided. Castor oil is very convenient to clean afterward. It’s easy to wipe off the skin and will not leave an oily residue.
After you finish using the Castor Oil Pack, place it
in the plastic bag provided and keep it in the fridge. When it’s time to use the pack again, just rub the bag between your hands for a minute until it’s warm. Then add a few
drops of castor oil to the cloth and you’re good to go. That’s all it takes. How easy can that be?
Keep the reusable pack in the fridge with a date
sticker on the plastic and it's safe to reuse for a couple of months – or longer. It will not go bad. Even farm industries coat certain grains with castor oil for extended

The Benefits of Regular
Regular use of the Castor Oil Pack gives better results. A
minimal of two hours use of the pack can boost the immune system to function well. It can be used as often as needed.
This pack can be used as an alternative to uterine fibroid
treatments. It also helps to stimulate both the liver and gallbladder relieving pain, increasing lymphatic circulation, and reducing inflammation. It improves digestion, and provides relief for
excessive gas, constipation as well as menstrual cramps.
Because of castor oil’s anti-toxin, lymphatic stimulant
and drainage properties, using the pack during the cleansing and detoxifying regimen makes the herx (healing crisis) more tolerable.
My take on Castor Oil Pack.
Most of the time, my approach to using natural
remedies is conservative, but not in this case. When it comes to using the Castor Oil Pack, I say, "The more the merrier."
If I have to choose one type of natural healing remedy over all
others, I probably go with the Castor Oil Pack, because I figured that if I can nip a certain problems in the bud, things won’t get as complicated along the way.
Our mothers were definitely onto something when they force-fed
us castor oil during our formative years. However, I highly recommend this upgrade to a very humble,
natural and time-honored remedy.
