Hi m’lovelies 🙂 I hope you’re all feeling happy & healthy. I’m now selling Castor Oil and Packs on my website. I like to use the packs over the liver when I’m detoxing. They are particularly useful whilst cleansing, as they help to enhance liver function, and optimize detoxification. The packs are also great to use for arthritic conditions and skin conditions. It is also a great anti-ageing oil and I add a little to my coconut oil and use it as a facial moisturiser. These two oils combined are better than any moisturiser I’ve ever come across believe me. The 250ml bottles can last 6-12 months, and the packs are machine washable. See directions below for more info. xx

Castor oil has been used both internally and externally for centuries. It is believed that castor oil’s high concentration of unsaturated fatty acids are responsible for its therapeutic and medicinal benefits. Although it can be taken internally, it is suggested that you seek professional advise before you do so, as some side effects can occur depending on your condition. However, the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immuno-stimulant benefits of castor oil can be gained by using castor oil packs over the body. Naturopaths use castor oil packs for detoxification of the liver; digestive disorders and constipation; skin conditions and muscle and joint pain; and, menstrual disorders.

Directions of use:

Materials Needed:

Organic Cold-Pressed Castor Oil
Flannel or cotton cloth large enough to cover the affected area
Plastic large enough to cover the flannel cloth (part of a plastic bag is fine)
Heating pad with a low setting or a hot water bottle
Procedure:
Fold the flannel to a size that fits over the affected area.
Pour a small quantity of the castor oil into a glass dish or pan. Soak the flannel with the castor oil (you want it to be saturated but not dripping).
Lie down somewhere comfortable and place the castor oil soaked flannel over the affected area.
Cover the flannel with a piece of plastic to prevent staining of clothes or furniture and place the heating pad/hot water bottle on top.
Leave the pack in place for an hour or so or even over night (just take care with the oil on your bed sheets;). Use this time to relax (practice visualization, meditation, or relaxing breathing).
When finished store the pack in an airtight storage container or zip-lock bag and keep in the fridge.
You can re-use the pack several times adding more oil only when necessary.
It can be reused and stored for up to a year depending on how much you used it, and then the pack can be washed and you can start again.
