Castor oil is a natural emollient that penetrates the surface layers of the skin making it softer and more pliable. The effects of externally applied Castor oil can be enhanced through the use of a "Castor oil Pack" - a piece of wool flannel saturated with the oil and applied to the body. Use of a pack allows the greatest penetration in a specific area of the body. The application of heat further increases this penetration, allowing the oil to better impart its natural qualities to the body.

Castor oil, or palma christi, is extracted from the castor oil bean. It is used, externally, for dissolving growths, warts, cysts and various excrescences. Castor oil exhibits demulcent and purgative actions, and should only be taken internally under the supervision of a qualified healthcare practitioner. Biochemically speaking, the oil consists of glycerides of ricinoleic, isoricinoleic acids and to a lesser amount stearic, linoleic and dihydroxysteanc. The poisonous aspect of the seeds (ricin) is left behind in the meal after pressing.
Taken internally castor oil is one of the most reliable laxatives and is especially useful to help support food poisoning. It is also taken as a disinfectant. Topically it can be useful to dissolve cysts, growths and warts and to soften bunions and corns on the feet. It is also valuable as a castor-oil fomentation over the liver. This is done by generously rubbing castor oil over the entire abdomen and then applying a hot, damp towel wrung out in ginger tea and a heating pad or hot-water bottle over the region of the liver. This is applied for about 30 minutes daily to aid in decongesting the liver and to help detoxify the body. Castor oil is not used for use during pregnancy.
