A Therapeutic Powerhouse
- One childhood memory involving Grandma is bitter - unlike others that are sweet and comforting. Once in six months every member of the family had to undergo a ritual of consuming a concoction which contains castor oil. As the tumbler was passed around, each of us stood at arm’s length from the bitter, foul-smelling liquid. It eventually passed our hands and if we didn’t drink it willingly, we were forced to gulp it down. This mixture was and is believed to remove bile collected in the stomach over the past six months. Much like the other concoctions by Grandma, you still smell the bitter oil when it is mentioned and know the good health it brought to you when you were young.
- Castor Oil is a powerful and natural medicinal oil that is used for multipurpose. It is used for cooking, beauty and therapeutic purposes. The oil is a laxative and helps remove bilous and impure substances from the stomach. It is also a natural moisturiser. Popular moisturisers in the market contain harmful chemicals and substances that could have adverse effects on the skin and overall health. Castor oil is inexpensive and can be used along with almond oil or olive oil as a hydrating moisturiser.
- Castor oil also promotes healing wounds as it stimulates tissue growth and reduces the risk of infection by being a barrier between the wound and the environment. It also reduces acne and keeps the hair and scalp healthy. It has antimicrobial properties that help prevent microbial overgrowth and increases flexibility of the hair thereby reducing breakage.
