Castor Oil Packs For Your Liver | How To Use Castor Oil Topically?

Castor Oil Packs For Your LiverCastor oil is a thick oil that comes from the seed or beans of the Ricinus communis plant. Taken orally, castor oil is a strong purgative, meaning it will get your bowels moving. Some people use it as a solution for constipation, but there are many other safer, more effective ways. Others use it to try to get labor going – I was in that camp once-upon-a-time because at 42 weeks gestation it was that or induction, so I went for the castor oil. But I can tell you from experience that its pretty gross, it causes a lot of cramping, and I just wouldn’t recommend taking it that way if you can help it! What I do recommend though, is castor oil packs for your liver. They’re safe, effective, inexpensive and can help with liver detoxification, lymphatic cleansing and immune function.I know I talk about detoxification a lot, but it’s because it is so important. I know a subset of my readers are also people who deal with chronic illnesses such as Lyme disease, and detoxification is a key part of their treatment. Others are simply interested in natural, at-home health-boosting modalities. Castor oil packs are an easy way to help detoxify in the comfort of your own home, in less than 1/2 hour, for literally a few pennies.

There are health benefits to using castor oil on a daily basis. The oil helps break down fibrotic or scar tissue, it increases circulation to where it is applied, and it is anti- inflammatory. It can help remove toxins from the body by stimulating the lymph system, and it can also give your immune system a boost by stimulating the lymphocyte activity.

The best way to use castor oil is to apply it over the right side of your body, under your rib cage. A lot of people talk about making a pack of castor oil, which is a way to apply the oil using a wool cloth. I like to make it easy for people.

2.) A quarter-size amount of oil is what you should start with.

There are two things. It’s a good idea to massage it over the liver.

There are three. It does stain if you wear an old tee-shirt.

There are four. Adding a heating pack to it will help drive the oil in.

There are five. Relax for 30 minutes then rinse off.

For people with chronic health issues, we suggest doing it every day for 3-4 days, then taking a couple of days off. It’s a good strategy to do once or twice a week for general health.

There is an anti- inflammatory benefit to the packs of cisket oil. If you have a sore knee, shoulder, or lower back, you can use the same technique for those areas.

If you’re interested in learning more about the healing properties of castor oil, here’s a good book about it – The Oil That Heals.  Here’s a good organic castor oil that I like – Molivera Organic Castor Oil.

You don’t need to ingest a drop of castor oil to get the benefits if you were force fed it by your grandmother. It makes me cringe when I think of drinking it, I had gulped it down while 42 weeks pregnant. The packs of castor oil can help boost your immune system, support detoxification and reduce inflammation in your body.
