Uses for Castor Oil

August 9, 2014

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 great way to get better eyelashes it to put castor oil on them. I read reviews of how it made peoples lashes better over night, made them grow in fast, etc., and I didn't believe it...until I tried it!

Call it what you wish, Voodoo or Witchcraft - but it DID WORK for me. Having recently torn the cartilage in my left knee and also been diagnosed with Arthritis in the same, I was doing some Web searching for magical pain relief remedies.


One item that kept popping up on the searches was an old time remedy of Castor Oil.
