Wart Removal

Category: Castor Oil Exposé

Well, in deed, necessity is the mother of invention! Yes, and another cliché that works well here is many discoveries happen by accident.

So, where am I going with this??
To remedy the horror of living with warts!

When I was in my early teens I had two warts on one hand. I hated them! The only solution back then was Compound-W. Horrible smelling stuff and messy, however, it did get rid of my warts, finally.

I wish I knew then what I discovered, by accident, this year. My 10-year old daughter has some warts on her hand and one on her knee. I dreaded the thought of buying Compound-W for her little hands but did not know what else to do. While I was deliberating, over several weeks, she was using Palm'Hydra Mask as a night cream to control her eczema. One day I noticed the warts on her hand were gone! What? How?

It seems the French green clay (which detoxifies) and the Palma Christi castor oil (both ingredients in the cream) dissolved her warts in a matter of weeks! To test the theory, we began applying Palm'Hydra Mask to the wart on her knee.

WOW! In a few weeks it disappeared too! What a cool little discovery!

I did some hunting and found references to similar treatments in the writings of Edgar Cayce (naturopath known for his modern uses of castor oil therapies):

Use for warts and moles
In the majority of cases castor oil was recommended to be used in a great variety of external uses: A mixture of castor oil and baking soda applied on callouses on the feet, moles, ingrown toenails and warts.

"Apply a paste of baking soda with Castor Oil. Mix together and apply of evenings. Just the proportions so it makes almost a GUM; not as dough but more as gum, see? A pinch between the fingers with three to four drops in the palm of the hand, and this worked together and then placed on - bound on. It may make for irritation after the second or third application, but leave it off for one evening and then apply the next - and it will be disappearing!" [Reading #1179-4]

Castor oil was also recommended to be massaged on callouses, cancer (skin and breast), cysts, bunions, moles, tumors and warts.

Ayurvedic Scalp Treatment

Posted: 2007-09-11 10:01

Healthy hair is our crowning glory. The aisle of hair care products continues to grow every year. Like our health, it is better to treat the underlying condition not the symptoms; we need to take care of the source. In this case, for our hair, this means the health of your scalp.

Shreelata Suresh shares that scalp massage is the Ayurvedic secret to gorgeous hair. This is good news as it is also a most pleasurable experience!

Here I've included some of Shreelata's recommendations to help you groom the healthiest head of hair possible:

According to the Ayurvedic tradition, a healthy beautiful head of hair requires an ongoing care routine that starts with nourishment. Why wait until you experience hair problems? As with your skin, start taking care of it now, and you’ll reap the benefits for years to come.

Massaging the scalp and hair with warm oil, preferably infused with hair-friendly herbs, is the best way to nourish the scalp and hair topically. Not only does the massage work wonders for your hair, but it also relaxes the mind and nervous system.

The oil for the massage can be customized by hair and body type. If your hair is thin, dry and frizzy and prone to split-ends, you have Vata hair. If you have fine hair prone to premature thinning or graying, you are Pitta-predominant. If you are predominantly Kapha, your hair will tend to be thick and oily.

Later this week I will share with you the benefits of scalp massage according to the Ayurvedic tradition.
