From nourishing dry or damaged hair to enhancing eyelashes and making your brows look more defined, beauty experts everywhere can’t stop talking about castor oil! But what many in the industry have yet to discover is that the benefits of castor oil extend well beyond cosmetics. In fact, this highly versatile oil has a long history of use for a wide array of wellness applications as well.
Grown in tropical regions, the Ricinus communis plant, commonly called “The Palma Christi,” produces seeds known as castor beans. When pressed, these beans release a highly concentrated oil rich in ricinoleic acid – an omega 9 essential fatty acid traditionally used and studied to address a myriad of health and wellness concerns.
Perhaps the most potent and powerful way to apply castor oil for deeply rejuvenating and restoring benefits is through the use of castor oil packs.
Gather your contents.
To make a castor pack you will need the following:
Set up your environment.
Apply the castor pack.
After removing the pack, cleanse the skin with the Castor Clean™ Towelettes or make a solution of 1 tsp. baking soda in 1 pint of water and apply the mixture to your skin with a paper towel. Showering directly after also helps to remove any excess oil left on the skin.
Store your pack in a glass jar and keep it in a cool place. The packs can be used repeatedly, replenishing the oil as necessary for up to a year.
Now, you have one more way to add the rejuvenating, enriching benefits of castor oil to your fuss-free, self-care regimen!
