The Incredible Benefits of Castor Oil

Castor oil is a traditional folk medicine that has stood the test of time. If you are wondering how castor oil can make your life easier, then this article will help you. Here are some organs or organ systems the use of castor oil will benefit:


Cataract is a thin skin that develops over the eye of some older people. It can make for poor vision. Many things like driving, crossing the road etc. become impossible with a cataract, even if you are in perfect health otherwise.
Castor oil can reverse your cataracts! Put a couple of drops in each eye nightly, prior to sleep, for 3-6 months. You will notice your vision slowly improving and at the end of the period your cataracts will be gone. No surgery, no fuss!

Make sure to use high quality pure castor oil as you do not want impurities in your eye.


People of all ages can face constipation. A spoonful of castor oil for 1-3 days can solve this problem. Scientists have found that a component of castor oil, ricinoleic acid binds to the smooth muscle cells in the intestines and has mild laxative effects.

Castor oil has been used for centuries for its anti-parasitic abilities. You can flush your body of parasites by taking about 50-75 ml of castor oil with lime or orange juice of equal quantity on an empty stomach. Sip hot water after that till the flushing starts. Many parasites including tapeworm can be eliminated by this flush.


Castor oil contains undecylenic acid which has germicidal and disinfectant properties. This protects your skin against infection – whether fungal, viral or bacterial – and prevents inflammation. Because of this castor oil is found in many skin care products; it also acts as a carrier making for easier skin absorption of chemicals from the cosmetic product.

Skin conditions castor oil helps with are stretch marks, wound healing, acne, sebaceous cysts, itching, liver spots, keratosis, dermatosis, warts etc.

Lymphatic System

Your body has another circulatory system apart from the one carrying blood everywhere. This is the lymphatic system. It contains lymphocytes – the disease fighting cells of your immune system – and metabolic waste, old diseased cells, microorganisms and other cellular debris.

Studies have proved that castor oil topical application can increase lymphocyte counts, increase the mobility of lymph, reducing stagnation, swelling and edema. This makes for better immune function and effective disposal of lymphatic toxins – which if left unattended can cause anything from swollen lymph nodes to cancer.

Female Reproductive System

Castor oil has many benefits for a woman’s reproductive system. By reducing lymphatic congestion in the uterus, castor oil increases blood flow to the uterus and ovaries.

•       This helps with cramps
•       Castor oil also helps with the elimination of stagnant waste products from the body and hence it can shrink uterine fibroids
•       It can shrink the fluid filled cysts on ovaries that some women have
•       It can reduce the pain and bloating from endometriosis
•       It reduces scar tissue from any kind of surgery – stitches, C-section etc.
•       It can help with blocked fallopian tubes by softening and increasing circulation
•       It can increase your egg quality and overall fertility

Applying castor oil packs to the lower abdomen over 2-3 months will aid the above issues and promote female reproductive health.

Note: Ricinoleic acid receptors are also in the uterus and hence castor oil can have labor inducing effects, so pregnant women need to be careful with castor oil. It is better to avoid intaking castor oil or using packs if you are pregnant.

Castor oil has many more benefits for the kidney, lungs, gall bladder etc. Like any oil, it can be used to flush your liver. It also has proven anti-cancer properties.

Using castor oil in some instances can substitute for other mainstream treatment (like a cataract) or in some cases it can complement it (like in women’s reproductive health issues).

In all cases check first if you are allergic to it, use a product of the highest quality ( the most expensive product is not necessarily the purest!) and be patient – results will take some time to show!
