Heritage Store - Palma Christi Castor Oil

Heritage Store - Palma Christi Castor Oil

Item: 076970221325
Shipping Info (Below)

Castor Oil, which is made from the beans of a plant the Romans called "Palma Christi" because it leaves resembled the palm of Christ, has been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine. It used to be taken internally to cleanse the digestive tract (and this type is pure enough and cold-pressed to be free of ricin (which is toxic) such that it can be taken internally, although that is not recommended). But it now has two main sets of external uses: 1) to soften the skin or hair, either by massaging it in, or wrapping a cloth soaked in the oil over it, for a night; and 2) as a hot abdominal healing pack -- an alternative treatment modality advanced by Edgar Cayce, which some maintain can help stimulate certain organs or alleviate a variety of health conditions or complaints. The basic directions for that appear below.

Ingredients: Pure, Cold-Pressed, Top Quality Ricinus communis (Castor) Oil.

Free of Hexane, Paraben, Phthalate, or Artificial Colour or Fragrance.

Certified as being periodically tested by an independent laboratory which has found it to be free of the most common pesticide residues down to a detection level of 1 ppm.

Suggested Usage: General Directions for using a Castor Oil Pack, using pure undyed Cotton or Wool Flannel material:
1. Fold about 1 square foot of the material at least once to make a pack of appropriate size, and saturate with about 1/4 cup of castor oil (by pouring it onto the bottom of the pack, or dipping the pack in a bowl of preheated oil).
2. Position the pack over your placed over the right side of the abdomen (covering the liver, upper small intestines, cecum, and ascending colon), and cover it with a piece of plastic, and a heating pad or hot water bottle above that. (A towel over it may also be useful, to protect the bedding from getting oil on it.) You might also wrap an Ace bandage loosely around the pack and your body to hold pack in place.
3. Turn the heating pad on low or to a setting your body tolerates, but if an infection or fever is present (or suspected), do not use heat.
4. Allow the pack to remain for an hour or more. Longer applications can be beneficial, but only if you avoid falling asleep with the heating pad turned on.
5. After the pack is removed, cleanse your abdomen, with a solution of baking soda in water (1 teaspoonful to a pint), for example.
6. Store the pack in plastic bag or other container in the fridge or a cool place after use: it can be reused up to 24 times before the pack must be cleaned or discarded.
7. Use 3 to 5 days per week for three weeks each month, until desired results are obtained.
