Organic Castor Oil, Virgin

Castor Oil is cold pressed from the organic seeds of the Castor Plant (Ricinus communis), thus retaining all its valuable nutrients. It is heavier in texture than other vegetable oils, yet very mild and odorless. Castor oil has an unusual chemical composition; it is a triglyceride, comprised of fatty acids, 90 percent of which is ricinoleic acid. This fatty acid is thought to be responsible for castor oil's unique properties, and why it has been used for stomach discomfort.

Castor Oil has a variety of uses, from pharmaceuticals to cosmetics and skin care products. Modern non-medicinal uses for castor oil include being used as a food additive, a potential mold inhibitor, and as an ingredient in skin care products and cosmetics, including creams for a variety of skin complaints.

Ingredients: Organic Castor Oil (Ricinus communis), Virgin.

Packaging: To preserve and maintain their beneficial properties for years, our 4 oz and 16 oz Vegetable Oils are packaged in light resistant, dark glass amber bottles with a pressure sealed lid and a taper seal poly liner. This elegant bottle is the perfect way to protect light-sensitive liquids, because the dark amber glass helps prevent light degradation. The 1 gallon sizes are packaged in a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) jug, with a tight-fitting plastic lid to help protect contents from moisture and air. Our 5 gallon Vegetable Oils are packaged in a cube container with a spigot and handle.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry place, and avoid direct sunlight and heat. Preserving Oils: If stored improperly for long periods of time, the oils may become rancid. They have a minimum 2 year shelf life when stored properly. When making products with vegetable oils, you can also add 2% Vitamin E Oil to act as a natural preservative.

Good for the Liver and above

I was diagnosed with Hip-C in 1996. I rubbed this on my abandon and put a heating pad on the spot. It got me through some hard times. I am now cured. Thanks to Harvovi !!

Castor Oil

This was not a good carrier oil for me, almost felt sticky and too thick unlike the Almond Oil.
