That is a product called Castrol oil! But it is so funny how when one mentions castor oil, if not familiar with it, folks tend to scrunch up their noses and say.. eww.
Castor Oil comes from a plant and has been used for thousands of years for a slew of conditions. Today it is a common folk remedy used for everything from an antibacterial to a hair growth remedy.
Personally, I have used to it treat an eye sty, promote digestion, massage into arthritic joints, heal minor cuts and abrasions and as a deep moisturizer for the feet.
But according to multiple sources including my personal NP physician it can also be used to treat random things like toenail fungus, ringworm, acne, keratosis and other skin conditions.
It is also believed to be support a strong lymphatic system. That's the part of our bodies that fight off infection and boost circulation.
And massaging warm castor oil into your hair and scalp, is said to increase hair growth! Since it also has antifungal and antibacterial properties, if you mix it with a little olive oil and lemon it could improve dandruff issues.
Having a container of castor oil around the house sure can come in handy! If you find any other uses or benefits to this liquid gold, please share.
