The Oil That Heals – Castor Oil



The ancient healer
You may be familiar with your grandmother recommending castor oil for constipation. However, the unique, healing benefits of castor oil reach into far more categories. Over the centuries, castor oil received such sterling reputation because of its rapid healing benefits in so many different disorders.

Castor oil was used therapeutically in ancient India, China, Persia, Egypt, Africa, Greece, Rome and Europe – so effective it was called “the Palma Christa” or “hand of Christ.”  The famous Edgar Cayce, known as the sleeping prophet,” popularized the use of castor oil, especially in the form of castor oil packs in the 1930’s and 40’s, resulting in amazing health recoveries for many people.

More recently, Dr Wm. McGarey, a medical doctor from Arizona, recounted many seemingly miraculous cases using castor oil packs in his book, The Oil That Heals, for a wide range of disorders from “you name it” to chronic headaches, low back injury, trauma, infertility, menopause, PMS, cysts and more.  Doctors at the A.R.E. clinic in Phoenix, Arizona use castor oil for virtually every aspect of health, treating eyes, ears, immune system, various aches and pains, moles, warts, and other skin disorders.

The castor bean , Oleum ricini, used in the form of castor oil packs has been seen to facilitate elimination through the digestive and urinary tracts, improve intestinal absorption of nutrients, dissolve lesions, reduce inflammation, filter toxins, promotes rapid lymphatic drainage.  The packs will eventually penetrate through the colon wall where it works to loosen the impacted material from the wall.  Because of this, it is a powerful adjunct to colon hydrotherapy.

Beware of junk castor oil
Beware of the source of your castor oil. Unfortunately, much castor oil currently available is derived from castor oil beans that have been pesticided or poorly grown (thus having few or no healing properties) and which have been solvent-extracted or deodorized (which damages the healing phytonutrients as well as containing residual toxic solvent contaminants).

The very best castor oil comes from the ancient land of its original discovery and use: India. Our nonhybrid castor beans are still grown by traditional herbal masters in the dense, central forests of India in fertile, luxurious soil and pure air. This castor oil is cold-pressed (without hexane) and is 100% pesticide free.
