Castor Oil

Castor Oil

Years ago, many of us did not know about herbs and their medicinal uses. Many medicinal plants heal disorders that artificial s fail. Castor oil is one of the oil extracts from plants, which is of significant use in our daily life. Generally, castor oil is a light yellow liquid having a faint odor and taste.

Many products such as lubricants, soaps, paints, coatings, dyes, brake and hydraulic fluids, inks, waxes, nylon, perfumes, and coatings contain castor oil.

It is extracted from the seeds of castor oil plant found in many countries around the world. Castor oil plants dwell mainly in tropical latitudes, as they offer the most favorable climate to grow. Different sizes of seeds of castor oil plants are cultivated. Castor oil seeds have a venomous substance, which is very poisonous, such that one milligram of that substance may kill a human.

Castor Oil Products:

When extracted, Castor oil includes hexadecanoic acid and many different fatty acids that dissolve in ether and alcohol freely. It contains Ricinoleic acid along with glycerin, which constitutes as a greater part in extracted oil. It includes ricin toxin, which has extreme violent action. This toxic protein is removed with the help of filtering and cold pressing. In addition, castor seeds have allergic substances that may lead to nerve damage. Many castor oil products are available in the market without any poisonous and allergic substances and are extremely useful in everyday life.

Castor Oil
Castor oil will help you to make your skin softer. In addition, you may treat your gastrointestinal problems, stiffness from rheumatism and arthritis, skin disorders and lacerations too with castor oil.

Reduction of water from skin leads to dry skin. Moisturizers such as lanolin, petrolatum, dimethicone and mineral oil, prevents the formation of dry skin by making a layer of oil that holds water in the skin. In addition, emollients may have ingredients such as lactic acid and allantoin that soften keratin, a horny substance, which holds dead skin cells. These emollients help to remove skin dead cells and make the skin softer and smoother.

You may use castor oil in massaging muscles and joints. To enhance the effects of castor oil in external applications, you may use a "castor oil pack” that is a part of thin wool flannel soaked with the oil. With the help of this pack, oil penetrates into the skin at a greater rate. It increases the healing quality, when applied to body. Make sure, it does not make any contact with sensitive areas such as mouth, nose, groin or vaginal area and eyes. Avoid use of castor oil on wounded and recently shaved areas of skin.

The product comes with the directions to use manual. It is important to check whether product requires a little shaking or not. The frequency of medication depends on the condition of your dry skin. Moisturizers work well if you apply them after washing or bathing. However, frequent, hot or long washing may have an inferior effect of moisturizer on your dry skin. In addition, you may use this product to treat rash diaper. You need to clean the diaper well and make sure the area is dry before treating with castor oil.


You have to store castor oil in a cool place. Make sure that children do not have access to castor oil products. It is advisable to apply castor oil on dry skin for two times in a day. You may consult your medical practitioner or pharmacist for additional information on various castor oil containing products and their benefits.
