Benefits of Castor Oil

Hey Y’all,

So today’s post I’m going to go over some of the benefits of one of my favorite Oils, Castor Oil.

What is Castor Oil?

In a nutshell; Castor Oil is a vegetable oil, it comes from the seeds of the castor plant. Its form is liquid, it’s colorless to light pale yellow; it has little to no odor. It’s in foods products, used as a laxative, and is in many hair and skin care products.

Note:  also before using, make sure you’re not allergic. So, if Rashes, Itching, or Swelling appears, stop using, as you may be allergic.

Benefits of Castor Oil for the Skin
  • Helps reduce acne
  • Softens the skin
  • Helps even skin tones
  • Moisturizing
  • Cleansing
  • Helps signs of aging
  • Helps fade blemishes
  • Prevents stretch marks
  • Heals inflamed skin

How to Use Castor Oil for Skin
  1. Mix 1 part Castor Oil with 1 part Olive Oil or another Oil of choice (in a jar) Shake before each use
  2. Apply to clean skin with a cotton round or Ball

Benefits of Castor Oil for the Hair
  • Adds shine to the hair (when used with conditioners, or used like a hot oil treatment weekly)
  • Improves scalp circulation (Which stimulates Hair Growth)
  • Treats scalp infections
  • Promotes hair growth
  • Helps with thickening hair
  • Prevents hair loss
  • Controls split ends & hair breakage (Mixing it with olive oil or jojoba oil helps you to  distribute easier and evenly to hair when applying)

  • Conditions and moisturizes hair
  • Prevents premature graying
