Uses of Noloss Foods Black Castor Oil


Hair Treatment:

Fatty acids and Vitamin E of castor oil aid in hair growth. When applied on hair and scalp, castor oil stimulates hair growth, charges up blood circulation and frees the scalp of any bacterial and fungal infections and dandruff. Hair roots get the required nourishment through castor oil. The usage checks hair loss and split ends. The oil traps the moisture of the hair and prevents it from becoming dry. The same theory comes into force when castor oil is applied on eyebrows. Topical application of castor oil helps in thickening of eyebrows.

 

Laxative:

Castor oil is known for its laxative benefits. When taken orally, ricinoleic acid gets released in the intestine and then it starts functioning as a laxative. Its hotness initiates action by digesting the undigested food residue and cleanses the system by helping in proper bowel movement. Many women tend to complain about constipation after delivery. If they consume castor oil prior to going to bed at night, the acid helps in proper bowel movement.

Application of castor oil on skin keeps it hydrated and free from infections, thus a remedy for acne. It is also used to do away with dry skin of hands and legs. It is used to treat ringworms and clear away stretch marks formed after delivery. Regular use helps in keeping off wrinkles. Using the oil locally treats painful cracks in nipples. It also heals cuts and wounds. It can come into help to treat severe cases of diaper rash in babies.

Castor oil also helps in getting rid of warts and moles. In Edgar Cayce’s Encyclopaedia of Healing, Cayce suggests applying castor oil with a pinch of baking soda on the area concerned, for the desired result. Topical application also solves the problem of cysts and corns by dissolving them. Using castor oil packs helps dissolve cysts in the ovary as the fatty acid in castor oil is easily absorbed by the skin.

 

Increase Immunity

Those relying on naturopathy say that castor oil strengthens the immune system by increasing white blood cells and thus fights infections. After a scientific study, Harvey Grady said when applied on body, castor oil increases the count of T-11 cells and total lymphocytes in the blood within 24 hours of application. This energises body’s defence mechanism.

 

Labour Inducer:

When castor oil is given orally to pregnant females at full term, it induces labour by pushing uterus contraction, say scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research. The ricinoleic acid in the oil activates EP3 prostanoid receptor in uterus, thus helping in delivery. But it is not recommended much as it creates a nauseous feeling.Its benefits can be reaped even after that both by mother and child as massage of the lactating mother’s breasts with warm castor oil increases breast-milk production.

 

Other Uses:

In mainstream section, castor oil is used as a medium to deliver some chemotherapy drugs to cancerous tumours. While treating metastatic breast cancer and other tumours, Cremophor EL is used as an agent for cancer drug Paclitaxel. But at times, it creates certain problems for the patient. Any irritation in eye can also be dealt with by applying castor oil.
