Castor Oil

Castor Oil illustrationWhat is Castor Oil?

Castor Oil is a very pale yellow liquid that is extracted from castor seeds (Ricinus Communis). It is an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant oil which has been used for centuries for its therapeutic and medicinal benefits. It is believed that most of castor oil's benefits are derived from its high concentration of unsaturated fatty acids. Although it has a strong and rather unpleasant taste, castor oil is used in cosmetics, soaps, textiles, medicines, massage oils and many other everyday products.

What are the Benefits of Castor Oil?

Castor Oil has been used both internally and externally for thousands of years due to its many wonderful health benefits. Since it can strengthen the immune system, castor oil is considered a great remedy to treat major illnesses and ailments.

Castor oil is known as the ‘King of all Oils’ in Ayurveda and is a highly cleansing oil. It is well known for its properties to get rid of both physical and emotional toxins, Ama, from the body. High quality castor oil can be used externally for body massage and abdominal packs or can be used by practitioners for purgation for their clients. It is anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant oil which has been used for centuries.

Widely used as a digestive cleanser it forms a part of the Ayurvedic Panchakarma regime and weight loss regime. Castor oil is known to reduce Vata and any Vata related ailments in the body.

Uses of Castor Oil

  • Dip the cotton pad into Castor Oil and place it on to the affected joint or muscle.
  • Cover the pad with a plastic wrap.
  • Place a hot water bottle or heating pad over the plastic wrapped cotton pad. The plastic wrap will prevent the water bottle or heating pad from getting oily.
  • Leave the cotton pad on for 45 minutes to an hour, once per day.
  • This Castor Oil pack can be reused. Simply place it into a plastic ziplock bag and refrigerate it until it is ready to be used again. It can be refrigerated in a ziplock bag.

Castor Oil TreeConstipation Remedy

Studies have shown that Castor Oil is a very strong laxative, which makes it very effective against constipation. Therefore, simply take a teaspoon of castor oil in the morning. You can mix the oil with orange juice, cranberry juice, prune juice, or ginger juice to take away from the bitter taste without affecting the laxative effects. However, do not take it continuously for more than 3 days. If symptoms persist for longer than 3 days, consult your physician immediately.

What are the Side Effects of Castor Oil?

Castor oil is normally safe if used in moderation. However, pregnant and lactating women and people with intestinal blockage, acute inflammatory intestinal disease, appendicitis, or abdominal pain should not take Castor Oil without their doctor's approval. Note that precautions must be taken when taking the oil internally, so you should always consult your health professional, before consuming it. A typical recommended dosage for the oil is no more than one-half to one full teaspoon per day. Overdosage of Castor Oil may result in diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain or cramping.
