Description

The best way to rule out an allergy to any oils listed on this website is to do a patch test first. Apply a small amount of castor oil to a 1-inch patch of skin on the inside of the arm. If no irritation occurs over a 24-hour period, the oil can be safely used on other parts of the skin.

Anyone allergic to castor seed should avoid contact with castor oil.

Increases Circulation:

As castor oil is thought to keep the lymphatic system healthy, it may also help in promoting circulation from the heart to the rest of the body through small capillaries and arteries.

Skin Care:

Castor seed oil contains undecylenic acid, which has germicidal and disinfectant properties. In folk medicine, it is often used for treating skin diseases and skin ulcers, particularly those which are caused due to bacterial or fungal infections. Castor oil is also used to protect burns and wounds from infections and is extensively used as a skincare agent as it helps in treating acne, pigmentation, and sunburn, and preventing blemishes and stretch marks. 

Castor oil for the skin may be used in a number of ways. If you are experiencing irritation or inflammation, clean and wash your face thoroughly with warm water, which will help open your pores. Then, apply a light layer of castor oil on the skin, or you can mix it in with any carrier oil, which is often easier. The best carrier oils are olive oilalmond oil, and coconut oil.

Hair Care:

The germicidal, insecticidal, and fungicidal properties of ricin and ricinoleic acid present in castor oil protects the scalp and hair from microbial and fungal infections, the two prime causes of hair loss. In addition to this, the fatty acids nourish the hair and prevent the scalp from drying by retaining moisture.

Treats Back Pain:

Castor oil’s therapeutic qualities are thought to help in naturally relieving backache and stiffness of the body.

Eye Care:

The anti-inflammatory properties of castor oil may help in improving the symptoms of early cataracts, relieving dry eye symptoms, preventing eye infections, and getting rid of those unsightly dark circles beneath your eyes. 

Other Benefits:

There are many other alternative medicine benefits of castor seed oil, which include minimizing the factors that cause migraines, promoting good sleep, treating symptoms of colic among babies, preventing corns and cracked heels, and treating mouth sores and chapped lips.
