Treating with Castor Oil Packs

Category: Castor Oil Exposť
Posted: 2007-10-02 08:27

I recently shared with you how to make a castor oil pack. It is a wonderful discovery for me. I hear of it being used more and more which is exciting! Some over-the-counter anti-inflamatories available are quite hard on the body and may not promote healing of the area affected. Additionally, castor oil is seemingly unending in its healing properties.


Castor Oil packs are recommended for ridding the body of hardened mucus in the form of cysts, tumors and polyps. The castor oil is applied over the liver, serving to detoxify the body. This is repeated daily for three days.

The reason this treatment is so effective is that the castor oil goes through the skin into the liver area and lymph glands and starts drawing and flushing out toxins. Our liver produces one third to one half of the lymphatic fluid in our bodies and needs to be kept in good shape. The lymphatic system is one of the major channels for absorption from the gastrointestinal tract; its main function being the absorption of fats. The castor oil must be cold processed and hexane free.

As an external oil pack, it has been used to treat a variety of health conditions such as arthritis, liver and intestinal disorders, tumors, cysts, and skin conditions.

For acute situations, use for 30 minutes nightly for five nights, take two nights off, then repeat the cycle for two weeks or until the condition is resolved.

In either case, individual response will differ depending on the symptoms that are being treated, please consult with your health care provider.

Taken internally, castor oil is a strong cathartic.
