Castor Oil Description from Home Health
Castor Oil is a natural emollient that penetrates the surface layers of the skin making it softer and more supple. The effects of externally applied Castor Oil can be enhanced through the use of a "castor oil pack" - a piece of wool flannel saturated with the oil and applied to the body. Use of a pack allows the greatest penetration in a specific area of the body. The application of heat further increases this penetration, allowing the oil to better impart its qualities to the body. Instructions for the preparation and application of castor oil packs are supplied with each package of Home Health White Wool Flannel.
Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil.
Cleanse the skin with mild soap and water. Apply as required, twice per day. As a Castor Oil Pack for concentrated application, saturate wool flannel and apply over desired area. Dry heat may be applied.
