The Benefits of Castor Oil/How to Make a Castor Oil Pack

3 John 2 – “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and BE IN HEALTH, even as thy soul prospereth.”
“ Every person should have a knowledge of nature’s remedial agencies and how to apply them. It is essential both to understand the principles involved in the treatment of the sick and to have a practical training that will enable one rightly to use this knowledge.” {MH 127.2}
“There are many… simple remedies which will do much to restore healthful action to the body. All these simple preparations the Lord expects us to use for ourselves … If we neglect to do that which is within the reach of nearly every family, and ask the Lord to relieve pain when we are too indolent to make use of these remedies within our power, it is simply presumption…” {2SM 297.8}
WHAT IS CASTOR OIL? Castor Oil is a very pale yellow liquid that is extracted from castor seeds (Ricinus Communis). It is an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant oil which has been used for centuries for its therapeutic and medicinal benefits. It is believed that most of castor oil’s benefits are derived from its high concentration of unsaturated fatty acids.
“ Castor oil is a unique substance with an ancient history . Folk healers the world over have used it to treat a wide variety of conditions. Castor oil’s effectiveness is probably due in part to its unusual chemical composition—a triglyceride of fatty acids with almost 90 percent of that fatty acid content consisting of ricin oleic acid…and the high concentration of this unusual, unsaturated fatty acid is thought to be responsible for castor oil’s remarkable healing abilities. Ricinoleic acid is effective in preventing the growth of numerous species of viruses, bacteria, yeasts, and molds.” (By: Dr. David Williams)
