Castor Oil - 16 oz.
  • 100% Pure

Gently cleanses inside and out.

NOW Castor Oil is expeller-pressed from the seed of Ricinus communis, and is virtually tasteless and odorless.  While it has become synonymous with many other areas of wellness, castor oil is considered by many to be one of the finest natural skin emollients available today.  NOW Castor Oil is 100% pure and suitable for internal and external use. It is an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant oil which has been used for centuries for its therapeutic and medicinal benefits.

The anti-inflammatory properties of Castor Oil make it an excellent massage oil for relieving arthritic joints, nerve inflammations, and sore muscles, or for use in a castor oil pack. Studies have shown that Castor Oil is an excellent laxative, making it very effective against constipation. A teaspoon of castor oil will almost always help constipation. It is also very useful for skin infections and problems such as sunburn, abrasions, acne, dry skin, boils, warts, stretch marks, liver spots, athlete's feet and chronic itching, inflamed skin. Castor oil effectively treats ringworm, a stubborn skin problem, due to it's antimicrobial properties.

As a topical treatment, castor oil is widely used for skin health and beauty. Massaging the body with castor oil prior to a bath once a week will help the skin retain its natural healing properties as well as stimulate the body’s muscles and internal organs. Also known as Palma Christi (the "Palm of Christ"), castor oil celebrates a history of use that dates back to biblical times.  Since then, it has been used therapeutically to help support and soften healthy skin and hair, and is commonly used in some of today's most popular cosmetic and beauty formulas.

Suggested Usage:  For topical applications, apply a few drops of NOW Castor Oil to the desired area and massage as needed.  For soft hair, simply add a few drops to your favorite shampoo prior to washing.
