In my last blog I introduced you to castor oil, today I am going to share with you some ways in which you can use the wonder oil.
- Rub a bit into age spots twice daily to fade the patches and possibly even make them disappear all together.
- Relieve sinus pressure by massaging a drop or two of castor oil into your “third eye,” where you nose meets your forehead between your eyebrows.
- Rub a bit of oil into warts and moles; it may take up to three months for complete removal, but this method will not leave you with a hole in your skin.
- For cysts, soak a piece of gauze or cotton with castor oil and attach it to the affected area with medical tape. Use a heating pad to help the oil soak into the area. Do this for one hour each day, eventually the cyst will open, drain and heal.
- The anti-septic, anti-microbial, anti-fungicidal and anti-inflammatory properties of castor oil will kill the bacteria associated with ringworm, psoriasis, athlete’s foot and other skin infections. Put a few drops on a bandage and place over the affected area. For larger areas use gauze or a square of cotton, soaked with castor oil, and attached with medical tape.
- For achy, tired feet, massage castor oil into your feet, ankles and calves before bed, wrap with plastic wrap and put on cotton socks. By the next morning your feet will feel rejuvenated, due to the stimulation of blood circulation. Also, any discomfort associated with dry cracked heels and/or heel spurs will be greatly alleviated.
- Relieve joint pain by placing a castor oil compress over affected area, wrap in plastic wrap and apply a heating pad.
- As a beauty aid, massage the body with castor oil before a bath. This will also help to stimulate the muscles and internal organs.
As you see, castor oil is a bit of a miracle in a bottle. Have you ever used castor oil with success for your ailments? Please share it with us!
