I have used Castor Oil many times for treating Pink Eye, put 1-2 drops in each eye two times a day, eyes will get better with in one day but keep using for 4-5 days. Always treat both eyes. After putting in eyes they will blur some from oil but will not sting at all and will be very soothing, castor oil is antimicrobal and a very healing oil.
A year ago I started using Castor Oil (organic and cold-pressed) on my planters warts on my feet. Just rubbed a little right on them once a day. By three months they were all gone and haven't returned.
I have been taking the herb vitex for my pms and it has helped so much. I used to get severe pms. recently in the past couple of months the pms has acted up again. It has made me feel to so bad thats its been hard to think&function. I wondered what was going on. One night it dawned on me that my liver may be congested, so I got out a piece of flannel and soaked it in castor oil and applied it over my liver area with a heating pad. My pms improved greatly, so it hardly bothered me. Then yesterday it happened again, I did the same thing again with the castor oil pack and the pms has went away again. I hope this testimony will help someone else too going through the same problem.
I discovered on accident that cold pressed Castor Oil will relieve puffy eyes / eye bags. I apply it to both eye lids with my ring finger.
My son was milling some cedar wood and got some cedar dust in his eye.
He wasn't home for quite a while and I think he was probably rubbing it some. When he came in his eye was red and swollen and before I even asked what happened I asked if he was having an allergic reaction. When he explained what happened, I wasn't sure if his eye was just irritated or if he was having a reaction or both.
I had him take Benadryl and I put a drop of castor oil in his eye. Within minutes he had some relief. I repeated the castor oil before bed and by morning his eye looked and almost felt normal.
He is not a complainer and was very uncomfortable. I was afraid we would have to get an emergency appointment with the eye doctor, but the castor oil did the trick!
I am pretty sure I reported this cure before when his older brother had wood dust in his eye, but this tip is one to keep in mind, so here I am again with it. :)

My ND wanted me to use organic cold pressed castor oil packs on my abdomen for assisting in herximer effect. So, after a shower in the evening I would rub castor oil on my abdomen and put a hot pad on my abdomen for an hour or two. In less than six weeks I noticed a scar on my abdomen disappeared! So I started castor oil on my face. I let the steam do the work while in the bathtub or shower I rub the castor oil on the face and let the steam send it deeper into the skin and just leave it on overnight.. I've seen a remarkable decrease in age spots.
Shingles treatment: My mother used a high quality pure castor oil slathered on the worst spots. She applied it most heavily at night and wore old pajamas because it's messy, but it worked immediately for her. We found the remedy somewhere online, years ago, so I can't reference it. But it worked.
NAY I'd like to also add to this and say I've been using castor oil for my face and eyes for a couple of weeks and every morning my eyes are red and puffy. Didn't attribute much to it until I woke up with conjunctivitis this morning and started researching.. yes, the risin in castor oil can cause conjunctivitis! :( Will keep going on the face but will avoid the eye area.
Hello everyone, I have tried the castor oil four times now and every time I use it my eyelids swell so bad I can't even see my eyelashes. The first time was on my eyelids for the purpose of better sleep. Boy what a mess, I was to go to a funeral the next day and my eyes looked like I had been crying for a week. That perticular brand was only for topical applications.
So I bought the kind you can use internally. Same thing happend, and by then I had read a post here that it was good for wrinkles so I put it on my whole face. I saw a difference the next morning and was pleasantly surprised, but disappointed because of the swelling. Well I must say I must be a glutton for punishment, the last time I used it was just around my mouth. I really didn't think my eyes would swell since it wasn't anywhere near my eyes. Wrong. The bad thing is they stay swollen for two days. Guess I must be allergic to it, unless anyone has any other ideas what's wrong.
I am 70 plus, and had sinus issues for the last 50 years. A couple of years back, I read about castor oil, and I put in 5-6 drops at night before going to sleep, and thanks God, after about 7 days, sinus disappeared.
Sinus Issues, Loss of Smell
i had severe problem of sinus coupled with loss of smell. Doctors suggested this is dsue to polyps and i had them removed about 5 years.
this surgery has given temporary relief but the loss of slell continued.
some of my friend suggested use of castor oil.
i put one drop of luke warm castor oil in morning and one drop before i sleep.
this i am doing for last 10 days and to my surprise i got rid of my sinus problem and smelling sense is gradually coming back
EC: Thank you for this feedback! We take it you mean 1 drop of warmed castor oil in each nostril?
Skin cancer of the lip: Has anyone ever heard of using Castor Oil Packs on skin cancer???
I'd never used castor oil before but here's my take on why it makes your skin feel so good.
Castor oil is like organic (I got organic) Vitamin E that hasn't been extracted from its "home"! It's like herbs, with all of the elements and compounds that tell the active ingredient what to do!! And you don't have to take it (or vitamin E) orally (YUCK) because your skin is kind of like a great big tongue and soaks it right up!
Heavenly on the skin but watch for other improvements. If you're suffering from a lack of vitamin E, there should be other changes as well. I'll report back after I've used it a while. I'm going to take a picture of some spots on my arm and a scar and use it on those to see what it can do.
WOW! Castor oil! Amazing!
Castor Oil & baking soda paste for skin infections, warts, moles, skin cuts
I use this tried and true Edgar Cayce remedy of making a paste of castor oil and baking soda. Apply and cover w band-aid. I change it 2X a day. Works like magic.
The castor oil and baking soda pull the infection out. My hot and burning finger throbbing subsided in less than an hour. I also used it on an unsightly mole recently. It took about 10 days to disappear.
I have found that a good quality castor oil rubbed into the foot for about 5 minutes will relieve foot soreness temporarily. Hope this is helpful.
