What is Organic Castor oil?

This oil is extracted from the seeds of the Ricinus communis (castor bean) plant. And this being organic oil means that it is free from any chemical solvent since it is cold pressed. This oil is valuable due to its high content of ricinoleic acid (RA). This is what makes the oil a natural polyol giving it a high shelf life compared to other oils. This oil is pale yellow in color and is found to have a light smell that may seem pungent to some people.

Uses of Castor Oil:

  • It is used for treating constipation.
  • It is good for treating acne and acne scars.
  • Because of its property to reduce inflammation, it can even be used to treat hemorrhoids.
  • It is known to boost hair growth. It conditions hair providing it smoothness and shine.
  • It can be used as a part of your skincare routine because it even functions as a good moisturizer.
  • Because of its above mentioned use it is even used in the making of soaps, lotions and makeup.
  • It has a thick consistency, so it is mostly used by blending with other oils like coconut oil, olive oil, almond oil and a few others.
  • It even promotes wound healing by the oil forming a protective layer to help tissue growth and keeping away the impurities from the environment.

It is recommended that if taking any such oil in the form of medication it must not be without medical advice. And even if using just to apply on the skin, do a patch test to check for allergies. Care should be taken to use an oil of good quality that is free from any additives.
