Castor Oil is a valuable vegetable oil is widely used in anti-aging products because it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin as well as hair growth.
It is considered one of the best herbal oils for deep skin cleansing and hydration.
It contains Omega-9 fatty acids and ricinoleic acid, ingredients which act as analgesics, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial to the skin. As the oil penetrates to moisturize the skin, it protects it from infections, treats acme problems, cleanses the skin from sebum and cures various eczemas.
It is also effective in hair nutrition and health. Spread with your hands a small quantity (2-3 drops) of castor oil starting from the root towards the ends. Leave it for 20 minutes and the wash it off, but you can also leave it all night long during your sleep.
For hair loss problems we can massage our scalp with castor oil diluted with a lighter oil -like coconut oil- because it is quite thick and difficult to apply and doesn’t rinse off easily. With this application we promote hair growth by increasing circulation to the hair follicles.
