Castor Oil Plant, seeds (Australia)

Ricinus communis  


castor oil plant

The castor oil plant is native to Eastern Africa and likes a hot climate.

The seeds are picked when ripe and placed into the sun to mature.

The seeds contain lectins, alkaloids, (ricinine) and glycerides, (ricinoleic acid), a highly toxic protein, (ricin).

The seeds are poisonous, however, do not pass into the expressed oil. The oil has been used for over 4000 years, in many cultures, mainly as a lubricant for constipation, however also as a stimulant to be massaged into the breasts after childbirth to enhance milk production.

Cleopatra used a drop in each eye to brighten her eyes and to reduce the formation of cataracts. Modern research has shown, effective results for blepharitis, and dry eye (ocular surface pathology).

Compresses have been used to stimulate waste elimination, to draw out toxins, and to enhance lymphatic circulation. The constituents of the castor oil herb, penetrate deeper than any other oil to stimulate blood flow, reduce inflammation and now thought to break up adhesions, scar tissue, internal growths, congestions and spurs.

As a compress this can be directed to specific organs to treat: uterine fibroids, abdominal scarring, endometriosis, pelvic congestion, gall bladder stones, kidney stones, bronchitis, liver cirrhosis, joint pain, back pain and for after surgery.

These packs are not to be used by pregnant women due to the stimulating nature of the castor oil.



Saturate 2/3rds of the inside towelling section of the poultice, with castor oil.

Leave for 15-mins to absorb. Keep the outer circle of towelling dry, for spillage. It is only necessary to top this up, when the poultice feels dry. This may be used repeatedly on the same area.

Add the hot water bottle/wheat pack to the pack insert.

Apply the organic cotton wrap to the area needing treatment and secure with straps.

Leave for at least one hour or ideally overnight.

Repeat for 10-14 days.

Please wash the pack, and re-saturate, if treating different areas.

If using directly on the body, please massage in a clockwise direction.
