Castor oil for regrowing and thickening hair, eyelashes and eyebrows
Castor oil is often overlooked for its benefits for the skin and hair because of its extremely thick and sticky consistency. However, if you’re looking for a cheap, natural remedy for several common skin and hair complaints, then castor oil is worth your attention.
Why would castor oil help you regrow hair – both on your head and the other two important places, the eyebrows and the eyelashes?
Castor oil is high in ricinoleic acid. This acid is a very effective natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent. This can help keep any fungus or bacteria from inhibiting hair growth. Since the oil is also very thick, it may help to prevent hair loss simply by helping to coat the hair and protect it from falling out.
Castor oil is also high in omega 9 fatty acids, which are nourishing to both the hair and the follicle, as well as the surrounding skin. Castor oil has a unique ability to be deeply penetrating, and this helps it to deliver its nourishment deeply into the pores and the follicles that produce hair.
It also has a high gloss, so it lends a lush glossiness and shine to the hair. A little goes a long way, and it is best to only add a tiny bit to the very ends of your hair instead of putting it up near the scalp if you’re just looking for a natural hair smoother.
Simply put about two drops on your hands and rub, then smooth through the ends. If you use too much, there is a fine line between subtle shine and a heavy greasiness so go very light until you figure out the amount that works right for your hair type.
If you’re looking to regrow the hair on your head, you can use castor oil as a scalp treatment. However it can be tricky to get on the scalp without thinning it out with a lighter oil. You can add some melted coconut oil, apricot kernel oil or another lighter oil to help get it spreadable enough.
If you’re simply looking to help thicken hair that is thinning at the edges of your hairline, you can use pure castor oil, with a light hand of course. Another use is to apply the oil to eyelashes to help thicken and strengthen them, as well as to help prevent thinning and shedding.
Castor oil for scar tissue reduction and shiny, smooth lips
Many attest to the wonders castor oil offers for keloid types of scars and other scars that involve a lot of old scar tissue. This is presumably because castor oil softens the skin so much and its ability for deep penetration through multiple skin layers.
In addition, castor oil has shown promise as a white blood cell stimulating agent. Studies have also shown that castor bean oil helps reduce the inflammatory response in subcutaneous tissue. This may be why it seems to speed wound healing, and may also contribute to its ability to reduce scarring more quickly.
Castor oil is also excellent for the lips. Our lips needs constant protection against the elements. Although our lips regenerate and recover quickly, they also dry out and begin to peel when they are dehydrated.
Castor oil not only smooths the lips with fatty acids, but it also helps protect them due to its naturally thick and immovable nature. In other words, it doesn’t budge without being wiped off. It also imparts a natural shine to the lips, which makes it ideal for both improving the appearance and health of the lips.
Castor oil for detoxing the liver
Meanwhile, we can also treat the liver and one thing that works outstandingly well in tandem with castor oil are garlic chunks. Garlic Chunks can absorb poisons that the liver otherwise would not process well. Castor oil will purge the liver while the garlic will absorb the toxins, kill infection and parasites and bring oxygen in where there has been a shortage due to toxicity. It is a dynamic duo that will always yield results. (See also Liver Cleanse)
Lie on your left side and rub castor oil into your liver, which is on your right side under the lower edge of the rib cage from side to sternum. Rub about a teaspoon of the oil in very well for several minutes while relaxing as well as you can. For extra benefit, you can then use either Professor Cayenne’s Deep Heating balm from Dr. Christopher Original Formulas, or Deep Tissue Ointment from Dr. Richard Shulze, on top of the castor oil. This heats it and stimulates its passage into the liver. Doing this at night, you should always experience some improvement by morning.
Castor oil is worth two chapters by itself, but it will purge tissue, improve electrical activity in the tissues, drain lymph, carry out poisons, cathart otherwise stagnant tissue and more. It is a wonder oil that dissolves all cysts, tumors and scar tissues. Furthermore, it is very inexpensive, easy to get and safe to use. Every household should have some and every condition should be considered as a candidate for castor oil treatments of some kind.
