Castor oil is a triglyceride of fatty acids. Almost 90% of its fatty acid content consists of ricinoleic acid. Such a high concentration of this unusual unsaturated fatty acid may be responsible for castor oil's remarkable healing abilities.
Research has shown ricinoleic acid to be effective in preventing the growth of numerous species of viruses, bacteria, yeasts and molds. Using castor oil topically has had a high degree of success in clearing stubborn skin ailments such as ringworm, keratoses and skin inflammation. Generally, for these conditions, the affected area is simply wrapped in cotton cloth soaked with castor oil for one night or for a few nights in a row until the area heals.
Castor oil appears to work by drawing blood circulation and enhanced biological energy to the area where it is applied, then drawing lodged toxins out of the body. Many practitioners often use castor oil as an important adjunct to a comprehensive treatment plan for an individual. It is important to eradicate the root cause of an illness, not only to clear the symptoms of a disorder. Castor oil has proven very valuable in helping to detoxify the body at deeper levels, thus eliminating the root causes.
Beware Of The Source Of Your Castor Oil
Unfortunately, much castor oil currently available is derived from castor oil beans that have been pesticides or poorly grown (thus having few or no healing properties) and/or which have been solvent-extracted or deodorized (which damages the healing phytonutrients as well as containing residual toxic solvent contaminants).
Used by many cultures, especially for skin conditions and detox. Help reduce kidney burden. Promotes rapid lymphatic drainage. Naturally rich in extraordinary phytonutrients, ricinoleic acid, and undecylenic acid: potent, natural anti-infective compounds.
