Hi, I'm Andrea

    How to do a castor oil pack

    I have been in love with a weekly or bi-weekly castor oil pack for the past few months. Why would you want to do one and why would you want to avoid one?

    Why do one?

    • If you have cyst or menstrual irregularities that you want to help ease
    • To help detox the body
    • Reduce inflammation
    • Promote circulation in the body
    • Helps you relax and release muscle tension
    • Constipation

    What do you need?

    How to do one?

    1. Heat hot water in kettle and pour into the hot water thermal.
    2. Drizzle castor oil on the flannel cloth. Coat it enough to make it wet, but not so much it oozes everywhere.
    3. Lay down on top of old towel in case the castor oil drips off your skin.
    4. Place the flannel cloth directly onto your low belly on lower right side of abdomen and low belly.
    5. Place hot water thermal on top of castor oil.
    6. Try and lay down for at least 30 minutes ideally 60-90 minutes. You can read, watch a fun tv show, just relax.

     

    When should you not do one?

    • During menstruation- in case cause heavier bleeding.
    • During pregnancy

     

    How often should you do a castor oil pack?

    You can start with bi-weekly or weekly castor oil packs if you're in need of treating cysts, regular menstrual cycles, or constipation problems. They can be done a few times a week safely if you're treating one of the above issues.
