It can be used to improve liver function, relieve pain, reduce inflammation and to improve digestion. 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.

Make a small pad by folding a small piece of unbleached cheesecloth into 3 or 4 layers.
Pour Castor Oil on the cheesecloth and place it on your wrist.
Cover the pad with a plastic wrap.
Place a hot water bottle or heating pad over the plastic wrapped cotton pad. The plastic wrap will prevent the water bottle or heating pad from getting oily.
Leave the cotton pad on for 20 - 30 minutes (or even to an hour).
