Old remedy, big benefits: How castor oil can help your health


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) — Most of us think of castor oil and something your grand mother or even great grand mother would force upon you to treat stomach ailments.  But guess what?  Your grandmother was right and this inexpensive remedy is a healing powerhouse that I always have on hand in our household.  Castor Oil is a pale yellow liquid that is extracted from castor seeds. It has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties and has been used for centuries with strong therapeutic and medicinal benefits.

Castor oil preserves the moisture, flexibility and suppleness of the body and skin.  It supports reproductive tissue, while eliminating toxins. Castor oil is considered the best medicine for joint pain. It can be used for body aches and pains such as cramps, back ache, and pain related to menstruation.  Castor oil is also one of the best things to use for chronic constipation.

This oil can be taken internally and used topically.  Fair warning – it does have a particularly strong and unpleasant taste, that being said, it can also be purchased in capsule from if the taste is just too off putting for you.  Aside from the listed health benefits it is also known as a beauty treatment for skin and hair.

Get yourself a bottle and give it a try ~ You will be glad that you did!
