I use it for EVERY infection always with success even open wounds or surgical wounds (but that's for you to determine). I use it for pink eye (gone in 3 to 5 days) right on the eyes, mosquito and spider bites (for spiders best activated charcoal packs and internal until all is gone, change frequently), in the ear for ear infections, over a tooth abscess for relief and reduction in inflammation, for vaginal and uterine infections (pack), for arthritis, fibromyalgia swelling, moles, athlete's foot, sore throat on throat, swollen neck glands, WONDERFUL FOR SCALP AND HAIR....
The biggest miracles were for uterine infection and it dissolved a tumor the size of a mini golf ball in 5 days that formed behind my navel after a tubal ligation.
I used it to massage my brother in-law's body in the hospital after a car accident that left him with 87 broken bones including all the bones of the face. He was scheduled for face surgery. In only a week all his bones went back into place except for one clavicle and no face surgery was necessary, the doctors were baffled (of course they did not question the castor oil rubs because that to them is an impossibility).
A small study at the Meridian Institute at one time showed that the oil raises the lymphocytes in the blood. My brother in law had a lung infection concurrently that would not heal with ANY antibiotic - it only started to clear AFTER the oil was used. That infection alone could have cost him his life, it was the biggest fear. Many may say this is correlation - but all scientific observations start with correlations... which is observation. Otherwise Neanderthal man would not have survived millennia!!

The lady on the phone (not sure if she was the owner) told me about using Castor Oil packs, and that by also rubbing it onto the bottoms of your feet, it will absorb into your body and take it to wherever your body needs it. Just use an old pair of socks to sleep in after applying it to the bottoms of your feet. I've been using it for only about 3-4 weeks now, but I think I'm feeling results already in the softening of the tissue where the scarring is located. I've only massaged it into the areas needed, and I haven't even tried the true heat pack method yet, but I'm still seeing results.
I've had dark spots on my cheeks for many years now, and I'm seeing a lightening of these after rubbing the castor oil onto them and massaging it in really well. I've used ONLY organic coconut oil for about 8 years now on ALL my skin as a moisturizer, and have people comment on how few lines and wrinkles I have, but it has never lightened these dark spots.
One thing I'm definitely amazed at realizing, and I haven't read as a benefit yet, is that I am remembering my dreams now every night!! I haven't been able to recall what I was dreaming for many years now, and now I'm recalling them nightly as I wake up every morning!
I'm hooked on it now!!

Quite frankly, Castor Oil had changed my life. I just had to reply here and raphsodize about Palma Christi Oil and attest to its amazingness. Take care, everybody.

I must say being in a hurry one evening while making soap I forgot to put on goggles while making soap. I lifted the stick blender accidently while mixing the mixture it splattered on my eye lid. My family was very concerned about the lye burn so I immediately started applying castor oil and within three eyes it was gone, no scarring.
Another thing it is great for if you want to grow your hair Castor oil thickens and makes hair grow very fast.
Castor is great.

Ck the heat from time to time (if you combine oil & heat.. What do you get?? possibly a burn). Cut it off or lower heat temp every 10 mins or so to make sure it is not too hot, then cut it back up. Try to give yourself an hour or two with the pack.
The packs are good for so many things. If you use it on your abdomen, it helps activate some immune factors that are in your intestines. Normally you use the pack for 3 - 4 nites per week. You reuse the packs and keep them in a zip-lock bag between uses and don't share the packs with anyone else. Everybody gets their own packs.. Lol. You never wash them. Cayce's instructions say to follow use after a week or so with a dose of olive oil. I can honestly say I have NEVER done that. Just thinking about it gags me... Lol.
I don't know about keeping this on all night long. I am just going by Cayce's original instructions. He never advised wearing for that long. I have no idea how helpful it would be if you don't wear the heating pad but it certainly can't hurt. Massaging with it won't hurt either.
As for the lymphs.. Just massage up to the body from the extremities. On the arm, push up to the elbow from the wrist, from the elbow up to the shoulder, etc. Same with the legs.. From the bottom up. I broke my shoulder and the therapist massaged my arm that way so I wouldn't develop edema in my arm. Must of worked because I never had any swelling.
Be sure and use old, old towels. I use a large plastic yard trash bag, cut so it lays flat and cover that with a large old towel. I put all this under me so none of the oil gets on my bed linens or recliner. I prop up on pillows and I use an old, small hand towel to wipe off excess oil and wipe my hands after use. You can wash these towels but save them & use them just with the packs because the castor oil smell gets in them & never comes out, even after washing.
You can use the packs all over your body if you like. It sure won't hurt anything but, it is messy. Multiple sites might be hard to manage, logistically.
I get my supplies from Baar and they have a great book on Cayce's cures... "The Edgar Cayce Handbook for Health Through Drugless Therapy". Cold pressed castor oil is recommended but, before the internet and health food stores, my only access was the drug store variety of castor oil and it worked just fine. I do use the cold-pressed oil now.
I broke my back in 5 places in an auto accident years ago and wouldn't allow the drs to fuse my spine. The castor oil packs were a God-send for pain relief when I would occassionaly throw out my back. Over the years, I have used it for sprains, strains, sore throats... Just about any pain concern. They shouldn't be used in lieu of a dr for serious concerns but for run-of-the-mill aches/pains, the packs are great. Good luck!!
