I love castor oil! I started using it on my eyelashes and the first night I could tell that where I had gotten it on my face - that it was smooth and healthy looking. Now I apply it every night after I wash my face. For some reason it seems to me that the refined castor oil works better for this than the cold-pressed. For face washing I either use a wash cloth and water - or a bit of chandan powder on damp skin. Then I rinse and leave my skin damp and apply the castor oil first to my eyelashes, and then rub about a quarter sized amount into my palms and massage it all over my face and neck. I also add several drops of lavender essential oil to my castor oil.
In the morning I just splash my face with cool water and use a tiny bit of either virgin coconut oil or jojoba/sandalwood oil. My face feels sooo smooth and my forehead lines are much diminished! Try it! It is cheap and easy to do. You will see results the first morning! I promise :) It also makes your eyelashes and eyebrows grow to their full potential because they will not be so dry and break off. I also use it on the ends of my hair and sometimes on my scalp before bed.
I had hated castor oil for many years because growing up in South America it was a quarterly cleansing ritual by my mother and many others. This website has helped me to see castor oil in a new way. I have been applying it occasionally to my face at night. Every time I do so, I absolutely love the way I look in the morning. My skin looks toned and fresh. Yesterday I attended a function and saw a woman whom I had not seen for about two years. She kept saying "you have to tell me what you are doing, you look ten years younger. I have also been doing facial exercises. She asked her daughter for my number because she said she is determined to find out what I had done to my face. Many people were in the room and she was quite vocal so I just replied that I had been taking care of myself. I will tell her privately. I think the castor oil definitely helped my skin plus the facial exercises helped tone the muscles under the skin. I used to hate the mirror, now I glance at it ever so often. Thanks for the castor oil tip.
I have religiously used castor oil for over 22 years on my face. About three times per week, I put it on my face and neck and go to sleep! It has continually given me a fresh look, and I have no wrinkles. I also rub it on my elbows and knees. I wash my face with Dr. Bronners Castile Almond soap. The castor oil is a little thick, but keep on trying it. You will get used to it.
Castor Oil removes crows feet and wrinkles on the forehead. Mine is not about illness or disease being cured by the castor oil packs. Mine is more of a mundane matter that concerns women about their facial beauty. The tale tell signs (wrinkles) that gives a woman sleepiness nights, avoids facing the mirrors yet counting out the crows feet and how many more lines crisscrossing the forehead. i advise my facial rituals to anybody who is interested to try and apply this very simple application.
Firstly....wash your face with lukewarm water. gently soap the forehead and around the eyes area. Wipe the face with clean towel and let it dry for a few minute. second... into your palm pour a little amount of castor oil. Dab a little amount of oil into the forehead enough to cover the whole area and massage. repeat the ritual around your eyes and be sure the crow's feet get enough of the ointment. If after the massage , you skin is still oily, just press the area with a soft facial tissue. Do not wipe off the ointment.
Do this ritual every night before bedtime, once a day only. It makes you look 15 years younger and you can save money by avoiding botox implants.
