Made of richly textured, natural, unbleached wool, this is the same item featured in the Heritage Store's Castor Oil Pack Kit, since it's both exceptionally absorbent and extremely durable, and will stay in place, to enable the oil or other type of poultice you might be administering to get absorbed into your skin more effectively.

Product Notes:

Part of Edgar Cayce's teachings based on his study of ancient healing techniques are to apply "Palma Christi" or Castor Oil topically on areas like the liver, to help get the blood and lymph fluids moving to promote cleansing and healing. To accomplish that, the Heritage Store offers this pure, natural, unbleached Wool Flannel soaking cloth to use as a castor oil pack.

Of course, applying Castor Oil is not the only possible use of this material: another suggestion is to use it to administer other types of packs and poultices: such as Epsom salts, or Alka-Thyme, grape, mullein, or vinegar and salt.

The only other physical component of the Heritage Store Castor Oil Pack Kit (which has been unavailable in Canada for quite some time) are the Castor Clean Towelettes, which are infused with Hamamelis virginiana or Witch Hazel, Sodium Bicarbonate, and Gluconolactone (and) Sodium Benzoate. The purpose of these sturdy towelettes is simply to remove any residual oil from your skin after a castor oil pack application, and to cleanse the body from the acidity and natural secretions that may arise from the treatment. In place of those, we would recommend Thayers Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Facial Toner, which can be applied with either cotton balls or soft pads (or even paper towels), or even just a pure Witch Hazel solution, which you can mix with baking soda.

Castor Oil Pack Directions:

Before preparing and actually applying the pack, you may want to spread out a towel where you will be sitting or lying on along with a plastic garbage bag below that, to help protect the bedding (or other surrounding fabrics, if you are doing this on a couch or chair).

1. Take the flannel cloth and make a pack of appropriate size, and saturate it with castor oil. (The oil may be preheated or used with either a heating pad or hot water bottle; however, do not use heat if an infection or fever is present or suspected).

2. Position the pack over the affected area or the area you want detxoified. You may want to wrap an ACE or other type of elastic bandage loosely around the pack and body to hold the pack in place. Cover the pack with a piece of plastic and heating pad, if desired.

3. Allow the pack to remain in place for an hour or more. Be sure to avoid falling asleep with heating pad turned on, or use a hot water bottle, instead.

4. After pack is removed, cleanse skin with a solution of baking soda in water (1 teaspoonful to a pint).

5. Store the pack in a plastic bag or other container in a cool dry place when not in use.

6. Use pack daily or in a regular cycle (e.g. 2 to 3 consecutive days a week) until results are obtained.

7. The wool flannel cloth can either be hand washed with mild soap and water (which is more advisable, given how much oil residue it would have accumulated) or machine washed in cold water. Although you could likely use it for two or three days in a row without washing in-between as the above instructions suggest, we would recommend washing it after that before putting it back in a bag (lest the oil on it become rancid).
