Have you heard about castor oil? This oil has been used for a long time for weakened immune system and to help people recover faster. In the past, mothers gave their ill children castor oil every day in order to boost their immune system and get up on their feet fast. The oil was also used against other health and beauty problems due to the compounds it contains.
Castor oil was used since ancient times – traces of it have been found in ancient Egyptian pyramids. The Egyptian pharaohs used the oil for skin problems and eye irritation as well as against digestive problems such as constipation. The oil has also been used to resolve hair problems and improve hair quality throughout history, as well as for viral, bacterial and fungal infections.
Most of the properties of the incredible castor oil can be attributed to the presence of ricinoleic acid. This compound can boost our circulation, fight various infections and skin problems, improve the quality of our hair, treat digestive problems, support the lymphatic system, destroy ringworms, hydrated chapped lips and eliminate acne. And, although you can use the oil on its own, it works best when mixed with baking soda.
