Healing With Castor Oil

Thursday, February 20, 2014


Castor oil packing is probably the ultimate technique for bringing energy to an area of the body that is struggling to shift stagnation.

Castor oil has been used since ancient times for its healing properties. Known as the Palma Christi, or Palm of Christ, castor oil was used extensively by Edgar Cayce in his work with patients.

A castor oil pack involves the use of cloth soaked in castor oil, which is then placed on the skin. It enhances circulation and promotes healing of the tissues and organs underneath the skin.

It also improves liver function, relieves pain, reduces inflammation, and improves digestion. Castor oil packing is probably the ultimate technique for bringing energy to an area of the body that is struggling to shift stagnation.

Barbara Wren, the author of Cellular Awakening: How Your Body Holds and Creates Light, stated during our interview together that castor oil packing is a versatile technique that benefits all situations, except the following: if you have high blood pressure, during pregnancy or menstruation, or if there’s a risk of hemorrhaging.

When using a castor oil pack, apply this rule in all situations: wherever your problem area is in the body, always pack the liver first. This will ensure that this main route of elimination is open and ready to receive toxicity when it’s released from the troubled area.

 
If you want to make a castor oil pack, here’s what you’ll need: Materials: Three layers of undyed wool or cotton flannel large enough to cover the affected area Castor oil Plastic wrap cut one to two inches larger than the flannel (can be cut from a plastic bag) Hot water bottle Container with lid Old clothes and sheets (castor oil will stain clothing and bedding)

Instructions: Place the flannel in the container. Add enough castor oil to soak the flannel so that the flannel is saturated but not dripping. Place the castor oil pack over the affected body part.

Cover the pack with the plastic wrap. Then, place the hot water bottle over the pack. Leave it on for 45-60 minutes.

Rest while the pack is in place. After removing the pack, cleanse the area with a dilute solution of water and baking soda. Store the pack in the covered container in the refrigerator. Each pack may be reused up to 25-30 times.

A good Summer Cleanse is like tuning up your car for the Fall. By taking the time to care for your body now, you can enjoy the seasonal changes knowing that your system has been revitalized and prepared for the times ahead.
