Perhaps one of the best-known medicinal uses for castor oil is as a natural laxative. It’s classified as a stimulant laxative, meaning that it increases the movement of the muscles that push material through the intestines, helping clear the bowels. While castor oil is considered safe in small doses, larger amounts can cause abdominal cramping, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Castor oil is often used in cosmetics to promote hydration and often added to products like lotions, makeup and cleansers. Castor oil on its own as a natural alternative to store-bought moisturisers and lotions. Castor oil is thick, so it’s frequently mixed with other skin-friendly oils like almond, olive and coconut oil to make an ultra-hydrating moisturizer. Castor oil helps fight inflammation, reduce bacteria and soothe irritated skin, all of which can be helpful for those looking for a natural acne remedy. The moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties of castor oil make it an excellent option to keep hair soft and hydrated and help reduce dandruff symptoms. Industrial Extraction Vs Cold Pressed Oils Extraction by industrial methods, involves various processes like bleaching, steaming, distillation and hydrogenation – the seeds are exposed to extremely high temperatures to get clear bland oil and chemicals like phosphoric acid, calcium hypo chlorite are added to increase the shelf life of the product which in turn affects not only the flavour and aroma but also strips the oil of all its nutritive values. The more refined an oil is the less nourishing it will be for our bodies. No heat or minimal heat was used for crushing/pressing the seeds and the process of production was simple without the addition of any solvent. The end product, thereby was qualitative with nutrients intact – making it ideal for cooking. A surefire way to do this right, would be to go the local, non-blended and chemical free route. And if this seems liked a lot of work- ask your grandmother! What they have been traditionally consuming before all the modernisation is the ideal choice.
