Caster Oil Pack Detox

The castor bean (Oleum Ricini) is known principally as a cathartic (strong laxative). As a pack placed over the abdomen, usually with heat applied, the oil is absorbed into the lymphatic circulation to provide a soothing, cleansing, and nutritive treatment.

Use: The castor oil pack is specific for detox. It is very effective in the use of noncancerous uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts. Other conditions which seem to respond well include headaches, liver disorders, constipation, intestinal disorders, gallbladder inflammation or stones, conditions with poor elimination, nighttime urinary frequency, and inflamed joints. It is not to be used during pregnancy, heavy menstrual flow, or the presence of internal bleeding.

Materials Needed:

1.     Cold Pressed, Organic, Castor oil

2.     36” x 18” piece of cotton flannel

3.     Hot water bottle or heating pad

Procedure: Rub a generous amount of castor oil over the lower abdomen, a cotton washrag or hand towel over the covered area. Then place heating pad or hot water bottle on top and lay on your abdomen for a minimum of 20 minutes. You may even fall asleep and wear the pack all night. If using a heating pad, unplug it before falling asleep. For maximum effectiveness, apply the pack as often as possible- at least 4 consecutive days per week for at least 4-6 weeks. Daily use provides the most beneficial effects.

Hold the castor oil pack for at least 20 minutes.
