Castor Oil packs have been used for a very long time for a wide range of issues. Some of these include constipation, anemia, pain, bloating, inflammation, allergies, hemorroids, clearing the skin, gall bladder and liver cleansing, improving lymphatic health, immunity, cancer, Parkinson's, migraine, parasites, abscesses, uterine fibroids and other unwanted cells.

Castor oil powerfully assists the digestive tract in improving function and motility. A optimally functioning digestive system supports the whole body in powerful ways as we know from Chinese medicine and many other ancient medicinal traditions.

Castor oil packs are very simple to make and apply.

Step 1: Materials Needed

  • Castor oil (cold pressed and additive free)
  • Flannel (preferaby wool)
  • Scissors
  • Plastic or old cloth to protect clothing from oil
  • Hot water bottle (or heating pad if you must)
  • Towel (optional)
<p>This is most interesting, I make a pack with cabbage and pigs' lard, which works really well for inflammation. The idea of transdermal application of treatments is one which many people ignore but along with inhalation, is one of the best ways of getting a remedy to the required area in any strength. Taking medicines orally is in fact the least efficient, as the remedy has first to pass through the stomach and then the liver before entering the bloodstream. Thank-you for sharing. All the very best, Pavlovafowl aka Sue</p>
<p>Wow that sounds amazing the cabbage and lard pack. Such a good point about transdermal absorption of treatments for specific areas.</p>
