The natural world possesses certain invaluable treasures, and within this spectrum, Castor Oil emerges as a notably versatile elixir. For generations, this viscous, amber-hued substance has enjoyed reverence for its multifaceted virtues. From nurturing skin and hair to facilitating digestive processes, Castor Oil has entrenched itself within households as a dependable natural remedy.
Originating from the castor seed, Ricinus communis, Castor Oil primarily consists of a triglyceride composed of fatty acids, with a significant 90% concentration of ricinoleic acid.
Ricinus communis is a toxic plant that must be detoxified before pressing into oil. Only India and Pakistan understand this nature of the plant (due to it being used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine) and take the necessary steps to detoxify it before making Castor Oil. For this reason it is important to always source your Castor Oil from India or Pakistan.
When applied topically to the abdominal area, Castor Oil is absorbed through the skin and penetrates the underlying tissues, right through to the deepest layer. It is the only oil which this magical property to penetrate right down through to the dermis. The application of heat aids in driving the Castor Oil deeper into these layers which, in turn, stimulates the production of lymphocytes and boosts lymphatic system circulation.
Think of the lymphatic system as the body's internal sewage system. It diligently collects and purifies toxins, infections, metals, deceased cells, and debris from various bodily regions. These impurities are then transported to the liver for filtration and eventually excreted through the colon. If the lymphatic system functions inefficiently, waste and toxins may accumulate, potentially leading to a weakened immune system, sluggish bowel movements, aggravated food sensitivities, and ultimately, inflammation and disease.
When purchasing Castor Oil, exercise caution. Many Castor Oil products available in the market are derived from castor seeds subjected to heavy pesticide treatments, potentially compromising their beneficial phytonutrients and introducing harmful toxins into the oil. It is advisable to opt for organic Castor Oil (such as ours) to ensure a safer and more effective therapeutic experience.
