Castor oil pack


Castor oil pack therapy calls for applying a poultice of castor oil to the body to help with all sorts of health problems, including epilepsy, gallstones, scleroderma, constipation, and other intestinal conditions. Castor oil (a vegetable oil from castor beans) is well-known as a natural remedy. It’s also an ingredient in many pharmaceuticals and skin care products. Castor oil packs are a particular home remedy popularized by the healer and clairvoyant Edgar Cayce. He’s long gone, but his teachings remain popular in the alternative medicine community. It’s super easy and inexpensive to make a castor oil pack at home. Just saturate a natural fiber cloth with the oil and place it on your body over your lower abdomen. Cover that with kitchen plastic wrap, then put a heating pad or hot water bottle on top. Then—here’s the best part—go lie down for a while! (For those who like a step-by-step approach, Cayce’s exact original instructions are in the first link below in PDF format.) How often you apply the castor oil pack, and for how long, will vary depending on your health goals. A few cautions about castor oil packs: Don’t make the pack too hot, and never put it in the microwave. While lying down, try to think healing thoughts or meditate. This is not your chance to catch up on political podcasts! Also, a side note: The castor oil plant contains a toxin called ricin. Purified ricin derived from the castor bean is toxic in small doses, so if you are planning to drink castor oil rather than apply it to your skin, check with your practitioner first to make sure the product you are using is safe.
