- Great for skin and whole body detoxification
- Rich in ricinoleic acid, an immune-boosting fatty acid
- Promotes lymphatic drainage
Castor oil pack enables lymphatic circulation. As castor oil is absorbed, it penetrates the skin and muscles to reach the underlying tissues, moves through the lymphatic channels and causes the body to decongest and breakup any inflammation through enhancing blood and lymphatic circulation in the particular area.
Materials/ Things needed:
- Castor oil – about 16 – 32 0z.
- Flannel cloth – wool flannel is preferred, although cotton may be substituted in the case of wool allergy
- Castor oil pack holder – plastic wrap or plastic sheet can be used, bath towel or large elastic bandage, and a few safety pins.
- Hot water bottle or hot pad
- Fold the flannel cloth into three or four thickness, creating a pad of a suitable size to adequately cover the area to be treated.
- If you do not have a castor oil pack holder, you can modify by using plastic wrap without any printing to avoid dissolving and spreading of ink when exposed to castor oil, and a towel. If plastic wrap is used, cut a larger piece than the folded flannel cloth.
- Saturate the cloth with castor oil. The cloth should be wet but not dripping. The cloth is then placed directly on the skin with the plastic wrap on top of it. Castor oil pack is usually placed on the right side of the abdomen, between the upper part of the rib cage and the upper edge of the hipbone.
- Place a hot pad or hot water bottle on top of the plastic wrap. The heat will promote absorption, increase circulation and help the body to relax. Continue the treatment for 1-2 hours. Caution: Heat should not be used in conditions where it is normally contraindicated, as in the treatment of appendicitis, diabetic neuropathy or over the abdomen during pregnancy.
- Finally, remove the castor oil pack and clean your skin with NewLife™ Castile Liquid Soap.
Note: Do not use during pregnancy or during menstruation.
