Castor Oil Packs

What you need:

  • Castor oil

  • A hot water bottle or heating pad

  • A hand towel or 1 foot square piece of flannel folded over once or twice

  • One large old bath towel

  • A container large enough to hold the hand towel

    How to use: Pour about 3-4 tablespoons of castor oil onto a small hand sized towel so it is saturated with the oil. Place the oil soaked towel over the lower abdomen, just above the pubic bone. Place another clean, dry towel over it then top with a hot water bottle (or heating pad) to warm the oil. Now lay back and relax with the castor oil pack for at least 40 minutes to an hour. Place the used oily towel in the container and store for future use. The same castor oil cloth can be used for at least 6 weeks before washing.

    • When the oil is warm it's more easily absorbed into the skin

    • With each castor oil pack the cloth will become more and more saturated. You will not need to apply 3-4 tablespoons of oil each session. You may reduce the amount of oil used once your cloth becomes more saturated with oil.

Castor oil packs can be done up to 6 nights a week depending on the severity of the issue you are addressing. To have a better understanding of how and when to use castor oil packs, speak with an herbalist or other natural health practitioner.

Keep in mind that heated castor oil packs may increase bleeding during menstruation. For this reason castor oil packs should not be done during menstruation.
