Medicinal Uses:

  1. RINGWORM TREATMENT: Ringworm is known to be a stubborn condition to treat, but one of the active compounds of Castor Oil (Undecylenic Acid) has been found to be very effective at treating this fungal infection.
    Spray Castor leaves with some hot water and coarsely crush the leaves.
    Soak the leaves in pure coconut oil.
    Warm the leaves to a temperature that will not burn the skin, and apply the leaves over the affected area as a poultice.
    Leave on the skin for at least one hour, or optionally overnight.
    You may wrap the leaves with unbleached cotton fabric to prevent the oil from staining your bed sheets.
  2. They are pounded and applied as a poultice to swellings and a leaf is tied to the freehand for headache.
  3. Sap from the twig and the fruit is dripped into new wounds as a dressing, and root is used as a mouthwash and for toothache.
  4. Well-cleaned and then ground to paste in a little water which is instilled into the nose for headache.
  5. The anti-inflammatory properties of Castor Oil make it an excellent massage oil for relieving arthritic joints, nerve inflammations, and sore muscles.
    ▪ Make a small pad by folding a small piece of unbleached cotton flannelette into 3 or 4 layers.
    ▪ Dip the cotton pad into Castor Oil and place it on to the affected joint or muscle.
    ▪ Cover the pad with a plastic wrap.
    ▪ Place a hot water bottle or heating pad over the plastic wrapped cotton pad. The plastic wrap will prevent the water bottle or heating pad from getting oily.
    ▪ Leave the cotton pad on for 45 minutes to an hour, once per day.
  6. Bark is used in stitching wounds and placing over sores.
  7. Used for treating constipation, Castor Oil is a very strong laxative, which makes it very effective against constipation. Therefore, simply take a teaspoon of castor oil in the morning. You can mix the oil with orange juice or ginger juice to take away from the bitter taste without affecting the laxative effects.
  8. Hair Regrowth: Due to the rejuvenating properties of castor oil, it can be used to help stimulate the growth of hair. This is accomplished through the increased circulation of the scalp, which improves the flow of nutrients to your hair.
