The Benefits of Castor Oil & How to Use this Goop.

Castor Oil How To:

Basic equipment for castor oil pack

Items Needed:

Castor Oil – 100% pure good quality castor oil.

Wool or Cotton Flannel – 3 sheets of certified organic cotton flannel; no toxic bleaches, pesticides or chemicals is best.

Hot Water bottle or rice pack (or Electric heating pad) – to gently heat the castor oil pack while it is in place on the body.  I like hot water bottles and rice packs because there are no EMF and they cool down, which is nice if you fall asleep and do not wish to over do the treatment.

How to Use the Castor Oil Pack:

  1. Prepare flannel – Fold the cloth into three thicknesses, creating a pad of a size adequate to cover the area to be treated.  For example, to use a castor oil pack over the abdominal area, the size of the flannel cloth might be 10 inches x 8 inches.
  2. Protective plastic sheet – Cut a plastic sheet larger than the flannel cloth.  The plastic protects the heating device and clothes from getting oily.  A plastic garbage bag works fairly well, but it is best to avoid using plastic grocery bags printed with ink which can dissolve and spread when exposed to castor oil.
  3. Saturate cloth with castor oil – Place the flannel cloth on top of the plastic sheet.  Then saturate it with castor oil.  The cloth should be wet but not dripping.  The saturated cloth is placed directly on the skin with the plastic sheet on top of it.  The plastic sheet should cover the entire exterior of the saturated flannel, since castor oil is likely to stain fabric.
  4. Place heating pack/bottle/pad over plastic sheet – Place a heating device over the top of the plastic sheet (if using a pad set to a low or medium setting, or higher if it is comfortable). The heat will promote absorption, increase circulation, and help the body to relax.  This is generally left in place for approximately 30 to 60 minutes (up to 90 minutes). You may place a bath towel over the top of the heating pad to help hold in heat and an elastic bandage to hold it in place.   Caution: Heat should not be used in conditions where it is normally contraindicated, such as appendicitis, diabetic neuropathy or over the abdomen during pregnancy.  However, the castor oil pack may be used without heat in these conditions.
  5. Wash off area – After using the castor oil pack, cleanse the skin using a wash cloth and a mild soap.  Washing the area helps clear acidic toxins which have been drawn out of the body during the treatment and helps prevent reabsorption of these toxins.
  6. Storage– Store the use cloth is a glass container in the fridge between use. To reuse, add a little more oil to the cloth in the container, place the glass container in hot water to heat the pack. When warm the pack can be placed on the skin.

I do not recommend doing this daily. According to Edgar Cayce and other health care providers, it is best to do 3 days on 3 days off if you are not feeling well. For maintenance of health, use castor oil packs 1-2 x per week. Many doctors debate how much or how little to use these but most agree cyclical use is best.

Studies and clinical experiences support the use of Castor oil packs placed over the abdomen to improve GI tract issues, over the lower abdomen for improving uterine/ ovarian problems, over the liver and gallbladder to help detox/ digestion, on joints for joint pain and arthritis. Please feel free to contact me for more information since it is not ethical for me to make claims without know exact situations of an individual. All statements are broad and I do not claim castor oil will heal any illness- however there is strong evidence and many studies showing great benefits. I love the stuff but still have to CMA and protect my medical licence.

The Castor Oil Pack – Special Notes
How does it work? – The multiple layers of flannel saturated with quantum quality castor oil are theorized to induce a high frequency resonant effect which allows the castor oil’s immune-boosting phytonutrients to deeply penetrate the cells, triggering a purging of stagnant toxins.  This resonant effect can penetrate beyond the lymphatic system’s reach to even purge and purify the “no man’s land” between the GAG’s (glycosaminoglycans) and the lymphatic system where trapped toxins may otherwise remain for a lifetime.  Quantum-Rx Castor Oil packs help create a profound shift toward ideal cellular resonance and thus, ideal health.

    I have an issue with internal scar tissue and wondering if I have to have the heat, or may I simply just do a pack without heat? Will it still give results? Also, if I apply the oil directly onto my skin and then apply the flannel will it make any difference? Just curious and trying to fit it into my routine.

      Hi Sarah, heat helps the castor oil penetrate, without heat it will help but not as much as adding a little warmth (your body heat only does a little). You can put oil directly on your skin. If you soak the cloth, rather than just putting it on our skin, you tend to absorb more oil. Health & Joy- Susan
