Castor Bean

Castor Bean  ( Ricinus Communis )    Castor Bean Oil  So respected is Castor oil that it's still frequently called Palma Christi, translated as Hand Of Christ.

Castor oil has been valued as a natural healing oil for thousands of years.  Ancient records document extensive medicinal and therapeutic use of Castor oil in China, Rome, Southern Europe, India, Egypt, Persia, Greece & the Americas.

Recently castor seed beans were discovered in Egyptian tombs dating back about 4,000 years.  Only things of great value and importance were enshrined in tombs.

Castor oil is derived from the Castor bean and obtained by cold pressure.  It's rich in fatty acids, very moisturizing and lubricating to the skin in general.    It acts as a humectant, attracting moisture to the skin.

Chances are your grandmother may have used Castor oil therapeutically by applying Castor oil packs with warm flannel, believed effective for many discomforts, pain relief and to  "draw out"  cysts, boils, warts and tumors.

Ayurvedic medicine has long used Castor oil for lumbago, sciatica and rheumatism.

In the Canary Islands the oil is used to prevent sore nipples in nursing mothers and is also rubbed onto their scalps to prevent post natal hair loss.

Castor oil is also a well known superfatting agent and particularly suited for shampoo bars and natural skin care products.

Castor oil is extremely versatile and unique in its composition.   It is used to ease constipation and as an emetic to induce vomiting.  Consumption of large amounts of castor oil can induce labor in near term pregnant women.

It is notorious for it's strong taste.
