A very popular question people are asking online is, “Where to buy castor oil?”
What is castor oil? What can it do for you? Why are people eagerly finding out where to buy castor oil?
One such person who experienced the health benefits of castor oil was Amy (not her real name).
Amy had a fall. The injured part was swollen and hard.
Then she applied a castor oil pack. Right after that, the muscle relaxed, and a bruise as big as her palm surfaced!
After Amy administered a few rounds of the castor oil pack, the bruise disappeared and she recovered from the injury!
Why is castor oil able to work such wonders?
Castor oil is a vegetable oil extracted from the seeds of the castor plant. It has been used in a variety of ways since ancient times.
Castor oil packs are common to folk medicine. They have been used externally to relieve pain and aid bodily functions.
What are the many benefits of castor oil?
Castor oil is good for your skin. This is because it draws moisture into the skin.
It is also helpful for curing acne and hair growth.
Let’s hear what Datin Dr. Lynn Tan (N.D.) has to say . . .
1. When taken internally, castor oil acts as a powerful laxative and a detoxifying agent.
2. When applied externally or topically, castor oil has unique medicinal actions on your body. It penetrates skin and muscle to reach right into your underlying tissues. It assists in decongestion and breakdown of inflammatory material through enhancing the blood flow and lymphatic flow in the area.
This also helps very much to remove toxins and eliminate wastes.
3. Castor oil is also warming to your tissues. This eases stiffness and pain. This is why it is widely used as massage oil.
External or topical application of castor oil has been used successfully in many cases to relieve discomfort and pain.
Did you know that castor oil was used widely in ancient times?
According to a research report in an issue of the Journal of Naturopathic Medicine, castor bean seeds, believed to be 4,000 years old, have been found in Egyptian tombs.
Historical records reveal the medicinal use of castor oil in Egypt (for eye irritations), India, China (for induction of childbirth and expulsion of the placenta), Persia (for epilepsy), Africa, Greece, Rome, Southern Europe, and the Americas.
How can castor oil packs benefit you?
Datin Dr. Lynn continues . . .
Researchers believe that castor oil packs “enable the expansion of various circulatory vessels of the lymphatic system”. They assist your intestinal lymphatic to “take values from the food and to prepare these values in such a manner that they can be used to revitalize all the tissues – the entire system.”
The lymphatic tissues of your intestinal tract have important functions in absorbing proteins and fats, and in producing lymphocytes (white blood cells). These are necessary for the defenses and healing mechanisms of your body.
An important note: Pregnant or menstruating women, or those suffering from undiagnosed bleeding, should NOT use castor oil or castor oil packs.
