Uses for Castor Oil

antique castor oil bottleCastor oil has amazing healing properties. It can be used to help heal small wounds and even small burns. It can help with a pulled muscle, inflamed tendons, and even some tummy issues. Just place it on a cotton ball or piece of gauze for small wounds, then place it on the skin. For larger areas use a paper towel, old rag, or washcloth and place it on the area that is inflamed for at least an hour. You can cover the outside with another towel or rag to protect clothing. Castor oil is absorbed by the skin and is very useful for healing.


Its also great for tender backsides when you find yourself out of medication for diaper rash or someone has a sore backside from being ill and having to use the bathroom too often. Just put some on a paper towel, cloth, or even toilet paper and gently apply. It's soothing, has no scent, and proves quick relief. It will protect against infection and soothe the area right away.

It can be taken internally for constipation issues too. It really has no taste, but it is an oil and quite thick. Be sure to follow the package instructions for internal use.

A friend gave me some cold pressed castor oil for the purpose of using on eyelashes and eyebrows to encourage growth. Using it almost daily for 6 weeks, I've not seen much difference. However, since I was using it on my face, I included a skin growth with a scabby feel, and it has almost disappeared. However, on others, no result. BTW I use it also all over my face and at least for the day, the lines and dry look are minimal. For that, I am happy. Will continue to use.


Would be interested in others good results.

Even if it is obvious to the majority of its users, I think it is important to say, that Castor oil has nothing to do anymore with the animal called castor or beaver but that it is made from the oil of the seeds of a plant called Ricinus communis and that this plant happens to produce one of the most, if not the most, powerfull lethal toxin for which no treatment has been found yet. It means that just in case the castor oil you use is not absolutely pure due to an error or a failure in its making, it is safer not to use it for internal treatment or on an open wound or burn.
