Castor oil seeds have an evident tonic effect. The same is not true for the oil extracted from them, a viscous liquid, almost clear and whose effect is, on the contrary, emollient, lenitive, which means it can be used even in cases of inflammation of the intestine or dysentery. The oil can be useful in skin problems.
Castor oil, or palma christi, is extracted from the castor oil bean. It is used, externally, for dissolving growths, warts, cysts and various excrescences. Castor oil exhibits demulcent and purgative actions, and should only be taken internally under the supervision of a qualified healthcare practitioner. Biochemically speaking, the oil consists of glycerides of ricinoleic, isoricinoleic acids and to a lesser amount stearic, linoleic and dihydroxysteanc. The poisonous aspect of the seeds (ricin) is left behind in the meal after pressing.
Taken internally castor oil is one of the most reliable laxatives and is especially useful to help support food poisoning. It is also taken along with anthelmintics to aid in expelling worms. Topically it can be useful to dissolve cysts, growths and warts and to soften bunions and corns on the feet. It is also valuable as a castor-oil fomentation over the liver. This is done by generously rubbing castor oil over the entire abdomen and then applying a hot, damp towel wrung out in ginger tea and a heating pad or hot-water bottle over the region of the liver. This is applied for about 30 minutes daily to aid in decongesting the liver and to help detoxify the body. Castor oil is not used for use during pregnancy.
