There’s nothing better than using coconut oil on your skin. But, have you ever considered using castor oil? It’s healing, natural, and effective. Keep in mind that this is not a cooking oil.
Castor oil is rich in minerals, proteins, and other essential nutrients. Look for cold-pressed, organic, extra virgin castor oil.
- “Erase” wrinkles
Apply castor oil on your face every day to treat skin issues or “erase” wrinkles and scars. It’s an excellent source of elastin and collagen.
- Soothe muscle pain
Use castor oil on sore muscles. It provides instant effect.
- Repair damaged hair
Apply castor oil several times a day to nourish your hair, and prevent split ends.
- Relieve sunburns
Apply a mixture of castor and coconut oil on your sunburns. The combination of these oils hydrates and repairs skin.
- Nourish skin
Unsaturated fats in castor oil penetrate in skin, and hydrate it efficiently. Apply it on your skin regularly, and you’ll be amazed with its effect.
- Improve hair structure
Castor oil “fixes” pH values of your scalp, treats dandruff, repairs damaged hair, and prevents splitting. Use it on your hair to restore its natural shine. Rub the oil onto your scalp, and spread the oil all the way to your hair ends. Leave it on overnight, and rinse. For optimal effect, combine it with almond or coconut oil.
- Prevent stretch marks
Combine a tablespoon of castor oil and two tablespoons of almond oil. Apply the oily mixture onto your stomach to prevent stretch marks.
Massage your skin with pure castor oil for 10 minutes. Wrap your stomach with clear film, and let it work for half an hour. Do this every day. Unsaturated fats in castor oil accelerate the healing process, and improve your skin condition.
- Cleanse your body
Add a couple of tablespoons of the oil in your regular orange juice. Drink the liquid, and wait for the cleansing to begin. It will take about 2-5 hours.
- Thick eyelashes and eyebrows
Apply castor oil on your eyelashes and eyebrows every day for 2-3 weeks.
- Strengthen nails and treat nail fungus
Apply castor and olive oil on your nails to fight fungal infections.
- Heal dry lips
Combine glycerin, a tablespoon of castor oil, and a few tablespoons of lemon juice. Apply this on your lips, and leave it on overnight. Castor and almond oil work well, too.
- Treat corns/calluses
Use castor oil to hydrate your feet, and treat corns/calluses. Soak your feet for 10 minutes, and scrub with pumice stone. Apply a thick layer of castor oil, and put on your cotton socks. Repeat the treatment until you’re happy with the way your feet look.
Castor oil induces labor
Castor oil is an excellent laxative, and it causes contractions in the intestines. This leads to healthy uterine contractions. Use it only when your body is ready for labor.
