Liver Cleansing with Castor Oil Packs

Castor oil is extracted from the seed of the castor bean plant. The oil was called the Palma Christi or the “Hand of Christ” and has been used for therapeutic purposes since ancient times. Historically, its principle use has been as a cathartic agent, stimulating the bowels with strong laxative action.

A gentler use of castor oil is through topical application. Castor oil packs over the abdomen enhance liver function, increasing this organ's ability to detoxify the body. Its lipid structure is easily transmitted through the skin's surface and into lymphatic circulation, stimulating healthy flow of lymph fluid and keeping each cell of the body properly cleansed of waste material. Castor oil packs can help boosting liver detox, relieving constipation, improving digestion, shrinking fibroids/cyst, improve fertility, ease joint pain, boost immune system and more!
