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.
