This Black Castor Oil is produced by roasting castor beans (which darkens them from the ash), boiling them, and then cold-pressing them to extract the oil, which is rich in ricinoleic fatty acid, and can help smooth, soothe and nourish skin and hair.
There are at least three primary uses for Black Castor Oil:
- as a warming massage oil - to help your muscles, joints, and skin, by kneading it in;
- as a hair and eyebrow treatment, especially for those prone to dry, brittle or damaged hair caused by hair colouring, or for those who are growing their hair out quite long - to help strengthen elasticity and promote shine; and,
- as a skin treatment - to nourish and soften dry areas; to soften cuticles and calluses; to helps level out the appearance of uneven and discolored skin; and to enhance the moisture level and health of the scalp, particularly with a hot oil treatment.
The castor bean plant is an environmentally-friendly crop which can support economic growth in disadvantaged regions, since it needs no watering and can grow even in poor soil. The Heritage Store works with agribusiness development in Haiti, buying in small batches to help rebuild a self-sufficient economy there.
