Castor Oil for Benign Tumors - Earth Clinic

The diagnosis of a tumor can be distressing, even if the tumor is benign (non-cancerous). Benign tumors indicate that something is not right within the body. Natural remedies for benign tumors include Essiac tea, blood purifying herbs, juicing, dietary changes and enzyme supplements. If the cause of the tumor is known, eliminating the cause is important as well.

Traditional medical protocol for benign tumors can range from simply monitoring the tumor to surgery. Sometimes radiation or medication is suggested. If the tumor is causing pain or interfering with a body system in some way, treatment is more likely to be recommended. Tumors should be monitored at the least since some can become cancerous.

Benign tumors include the following:

  • Fibroids
  • Polyps
  • Lipmas
  • Fibromas
  • Hemangiomas
  • Seborrheic keratosis 
  • Adenomas
  • Fibromatosis

Herbs for Tumors

Essiac Tea

Essiac tea is a gentle herbal preparation that has been used by herbalists to treat chronic health problems including cancers and autoimmune diseases. The healing and purifying properties of the tea make it a suitable consideration for benign tumors.

Turmeric Root

Turmeric root is an anti-inflammatory herb and blood purifier. Curcumin, found in turmeric has been found to leave healthy cells unharmed while killing tumor cells.1

Using golden milk daily can support most other methods chosen to reduce tumors.


Freshly prepared juice of beet and carrot is gaining a reputation as a beneficial anti-tumor regime. For best results, use raw organic carrots and beets. Beets can cause quite a detox effect, so start with only ¼ beet juiced each day with a cup of carrot juice. If the remedy suits you, you can increase the amount of carrot juice to 2-4 cups each day and up to 1 juiced beet each day. Be warned, large amounts of carrot juice can cause the skin and eyeballs to have an orange tinge!

Raw vegetables contain many nutrients and enzymes. Juicing these vegetables helps to extract the nutrients and give you a concentrated easily assimilated end product.

Dietary Changes

If you have a poor diet, make changes.

  • Eat fewer fried foods.
  • Eat more whole foods and less processed foods.
  • Keep sugar and white flour to a bare minimum.
  • Avoid artificial sugars. 
  • Look for locally grown produce in season.
  • Berries, especially blueberries, have strong anti cancer properties.2 (For best results, use only organic or chemical free berries.)

Blackstrap Molasses

Blackstrap molasses is a wonderful way to get a concentration of nutrients. Blackstrap molasses combined with daily apple cider vinegar consumption has helped many women reduce or eliminate fibroid tumors.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Raw and organic apple cider vinegar, taken daily in a glass of water, helps to alkalize the body, which can reduce tumor formation. Nutrients in the apple cider vinegar also help your body to use its food efficiently so you can optimize the benefit your body gets from the foods you give it.

Castor Oil

Castor oil packs have effectively reduced many tumors.


Serrapeptase is an enzyme supplement that is used to dissolve non living tissue, like tumors. Serrapeptase is taken according to package directions on an empty stomach.

Hormone Balancing

If your hormones are out of balance you are at risk for tumors like fibroids and pituitary gland tumors. Hormone balancing can be complicated. A whole foods diet and weight loss can be a start in getting hormones balanced. The borax protocol and iodine supplementation can be helpful for some hormonal difficulties.

If you are suffering with any kind of tumor, something in your health is out of balance. Check out our wellness page for ideas on improving your health one step at a time.

It works, used castor oil heating pack for cyst and it flattened after about 5 treatments. Also helped soften scar tissue from c-section scar. (Years later)

I have a couple of "benign" lung tumors growing. Rate of growth is slow so I am trying to reduce them without more pills/chemicals. Can castor oil or any other remedy be taken orally?


Castor Oil

I had ongoing pain in my right knee. It was diagnosed by an orthopedic surgeon as pigmented villonodular synovitis (a non malignant tumor). I was told there was no real cure. He could do surgery, but it may or may not take away the pain, and if it did, it probably wouldn't help for long as there was a good chance the tumor would come back within a short period of time.

I was then sent to a second orthopedic surgeon, one who specializes in tumors. He confirmed the diagnosis, and I was told essentially the same thing. He said he could do the surgery but it would be messy, a lot of blood, I would come home with drains in my leg, and again, no guarantee of any success. We mutually decided against surgery. He gave me some pain pills and sent me on my way.

I started doing some research online. Somewhere I read about someone who had used castor oil effectively for a tumor. I decided to give it a try.

I began wrapping my knee in castor oil packs at night when I went to bed. After a few days that seemed too messy, so I transitioned into massaging it into my knee for 15 or 20 minutes each night before I went to bed.

Within a day or two, the pain began to diminish. Within two weeks it was significantly better. I use kinesiology muscle testing on myself, and after one month of daily use, my testing indicated I was done with the castor oil. My knee felt so much better.

A week later at a follow-up appointment with the tumor specialist, he confirmed that to his examination, the tumor had shrunk significantly. He said, “Whatever you're doing, keep it up." He had me come back in another four weeks for a further check up. At that time he said he could detect no signs of the tumor anymore, and he discharged me from his care.

I am sold on castor oil. For the cost of 1/2 bottle of organic, cold-pressed castor oil and some effort on my part, I've got my knee back.

Now I am trying it on some internal scar tissue. I've been using it every night for about six weeks, and I do think I notice a decrease in the scar tissue. This seems to be healing slower than the tumor in my knee did. But I will keep at it and be persistent because now I know how powerful this oil is—at least for me.

I had the same thing PVS. Had the surgery and it never came back. Been 23 years. But I sure wish I had known about ways to treat it naturally. Scars are no fun. Also the surgeon cut through a nerve on the first incision and had to move over and start again. I couldn't lift my leg without the assistance of my bath robe belt for about six months and my knee took about four years to actually heal properly.

Hi Linda, I hope you may see this reply. I have PVNS/TGCT in my left knee. I wanted to ask which brand of castor oil you used and how you are now? All the best, Liv


Hi Liv,

I have Sky Organics brand now, four years later, and it is probably the same brand. But any reputable organic brand will do, I'm sure. Happily my knee has remained healed and strong. Every now and then when lying in bed if I turn my leg inward at a certain angle I'll get a small twinge on the inside of the knee, but it's hardly worth mentioning.

It was a miracle for me, and you might as well give it a try. Good luck!

Replied by Liv

Dear Linda, thank you so much for your response. You're miracle gives me hope and I just ordered one here in Switzerland and now also the brand you got. Just to be sure it won't fall with the brand ;-). I could live with a twinge every now and then. I just got the diagnose in September and started with wirz, ginger and cabbage wraps (.. which is also so laborious to do) - as I got the same insecurity about the surgery or chemo. I wasn't sure about trying the castor oil before, but am so happy to hear about your success and hope it will do the same for me. All the best for you!


Hey, I also have PVNS and I am interested in how castor oil can help with it to avoid surgery. I want to try anything natural to avoid it. can you please let me know if it helped you any?


Hello Mitchell, Please read my review above. I give the details of how the castor oil helped me. Good luck to you.

While researching the miracle of Castor Oil a few years ago, after exhausting all the threads here, I came across an interesting scientific research article. The research was about how Castor Oil helps catabolize keloid scars; it literally helps your body "eat" them. I believe it was in the same article where it stated how deeply it penetrates in the body (about 1"), and over time the keloid scars would go down.

Notice how I capitalize Castor Oil (or Palma Cristi Oil, Palm of Christ), and this is due to my massive respect for it and the minor healing miracles I've seen it evoke (both in Packs & just rubbed in). On a cellular level, Castor Oil Packs attract T11 Leukocyte Healing Cells to the area, and I would think this would induce your own cells to take care of that benign tumor! Also, pray, think good thoughts, and imagine a green-healing light aura around you as you go to sleep at night!

Healthy healing to you!

Several people we know have avoided surgery by using hot castor oil packs. Also for knees/backs, on humans. For tumors, I have used dmso (read precautions 1st), followed w/frankincense oil, & they disappeared in 3-4 days! Were on chest, & the size of marbles.

Replied by Gll

Please send me more info, was castor oil included in dmso/frankincense therapy regime?

Currently dealing with numerous arising lumps on chest/underarms area, surrounding breast cancer area I'm fighting.

Welcome your wisdom asap.

These steps will remove any tumors..

1 - pot with 2 inches of water, warm water on the stove to melt Oil.

2 - put 3 teaspoons cold pressed organic coconut oil in a small jar inside the pot water to melt coconut oil.

3 - add 1 teaspoon of Frankincense Oil to the small jar.

4- add 1/2 teaspoon D.M.S.O. Oil.

5- add 1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda.

6- After all mixed remove from pot and put the jar in the fridge to cool.

Now you just made a 2-3 week oil to apply where needed, as often as you wish, apply morning and night for sure.

Best wishes,

I just made this recipe up and started using it today. I hope it will get rid of this acoustic neuroma. I'm facing surgery next summer and I really don't want to go down that road. Any further advice for me would be greatly appreciated! Thank you. : )

I, too, have an acoustic neuroma. I had surgery to remove it this past May, and I had 1 radiation treatment. Don't know the results yet. Please let me know if the castor oil treatment works for you. Thanks. Best of luck.

Remedies for Mass on Thymus

Posted by Jane (Canada) on 09/11/2019

I have been told I have a mass on my thymus which is a very rare condition. Surgery is recommended. As I am 81, I hope to avoid this as it is a very invasive, breaking the breast bone etc. I had hoped to do Castor Oil packs, however I read that if it is a cancer tumor, it is not advised as it increases blood flow and could spread it if it is cancer.

I do not know if it is a cancer or not. I do take alot of vitamins, herbs etc., have other health issues, overweight, COPD, back & knee problems etc. Would like any help available. Thank you, Love to all.

My doctor wanted me to come back in so he could do a sonogram to see how extensive the benign tumors I had were as the lab results had come back.

I started taking 2 pills a day on an empty stomach of 120,000 spu doctors best brand serrapeptase. On the day of the sonogram, he looked like he was in shock. He said there are no tumors! That was God allowing me to find the cure in serrapeptase!!!
