Castor Oil goes Inside ?!

Category: Castor Oil Exposť

Although my focus is the OutsideIN, I would be remiss not to acknowledge castor oil's recognized internal use.

The oil is now grown in several countries and varies much in activity; the Indian (from India) is the more active.

Castor Oil is regarded as one of the most valuable laxatives in medicine. It is of special service in temporary constipation and wherever a mild action is essential, and is extremely useful for children and the aged (their current dosage is noted as 1/4-1/2 tsp per day). It is used in cases of colic and acute diarrhea due to slow digestion, but must not be employed in cases of chronic constipation, which it only aggravates whilst relieving the symptoms. It acts in about five hours, affecting the entire length of the bowel (your large and small intestines) but not increasing the flow of bile, except in very large doses. The mode of its action is unknown.

From the OutsideIN: the oil will purge toxins lodged in organs when massaged into the skin in the affected area (location of organ to be treated). It is also used for expelling worms, after other special remedies have been administered. Edgar Cayce is noted for exploring castor oil's virtues in our modern age. His detailed notes form the most complete resource on the therapeutic uses of castor oil.

The only serious objections to the use of Castor Oil are its flavour. The nauseous taste may be disguised by administering it covered by: Lemon oil, Sassafras oil or other essential oils; or floating on Peppermint or Cinnamon water, or coffee; or given in fresh or warmed milk. The dose varies from 1/2 to 2 teaspoonfuls.

I enjoyed this source of information on Castor Oi.

Health Canada approves of using Castor Oil internally in doses up to 5ml (1stp) for children and up to 15 ml (1tbsp) for adults. Please always consult a medical practitioner prior to using any laxative for severe conditions of constipation and/or increasing the recommended dose.
