How to Make a Castor Oil Pack:
You will need:
1. Soft, clean, thick, absorbent, material like flannel, wool, or cotton (organic if possible)
2. Castor oil (you can find castor oil and flannel at your local health food store or buy online)
3. Glass bowl jar to pour the castor oil in over your flannel
4. Heating pad
5. Old clothes; castor oil stains fabric
6. Plastic wrap
7. Large towel
• Put on old clothes.
• Place flannel in bowl or glass container and pour enough castor oil over it to soak it: making sure it's saturated, but not dripping with oil. Wring out excess.
• Ready heating pad.
• Place your towel on a flat surface like a couch, bed, or floor. For added protection you can also put down a garbage bag so your bed or couch won't get stained from any oil that might escape the plastic.
• Lie down and place saturated flannel over the affected area of your body (can be any area where you need healing).
• Cover with plastic wrap.
• Place heating pad over the pack and let it sit for at least 60 minutes and up to 2 hours.
• Remove the pack and clean the area with water and baking soda if necessary.
• You can reuse the pack. To do so, store it in a jar with a lid, in a cool place or the refrigerator. When use again, add another tablespoon of castor oil and repeat.
It is suggested you use the caster oil pack for 3 days in a row, take a 3 day break, and repeat until symptoms disappear.
