Castor Oil Packs

Life hack: Castor oil packs

What is a castor oil pack?

It’s a piece of cloth soaked in castor oil that’s applied topically to the skin above the liver.

What does it do?

“Conditions that respond well to topical castor oil include:
◌ General detoxification
◌ Intestinal disorders: constipation, loose stools, poor elimination
◌ Liver and gallbladder disorders: fatty liver disease, gallstones
◌ Gynecological conditions: irregular periods, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, urinary symptoms
◌ Lung congestion, asthma, bronchitis and during acute colds and flus”

More things they can help with:

  • Liver disorders 
  • Thyroid cysts and nodules
  • Non-cancerous uterine fibroids
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Constipation
  • Gallbladder inflammation or stones
  • Inflamed joints
  • Lymphatic drainage 
  • Conditions with poor elimination
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Cysts in the breast tissue
  • General liver detoxification 
  • Lung infections

In my personal experience, castor oil packs have helped significantly with detoxifying my liver which I can definitely see in my skin. Take a look at the links below for instructions on how to make one and for further information. Most say to use them for about an hour a few times a week, but it really depends on the individual circumstances of each person. I personally have used them for about 40 minutes/3 times a week and saw moderate results. Currently I have been using it almost everyday (give or take) for 40 mins to an hour for the last month and have seen great results. I have struggled with acne for years and I’ve noticed a significant improvement in breakouts and less redness in my complexion. I’ve also noticed better tolerance in digestion and less inflammation.

Wishing you the best,
