Castor oil is the oil from the seeds of the castor plant. Its either colorless or has a very pale color, and it has a very bad smell.
Before you use the castor oil on your skin, try it out on a small patch of skin to make sure you’re not allergic to it.
1. Reduces Wrinkles
Because castor oil is a natural moisturizer, it can lessen the signs of crow’s- feet, wrinkles, and fine lines. Castor oil can get into the layers of the skin easily, and so it does not clog the pores. In fact, it can reach deep into the skin to give it nutrients. It can also weaken signs of blemishes and scars on the skin.
2. Promotes Hair Growth
Castor oil is also very good for your hair. It helps to deeply condition your hair and thicken the hair strands. This will leave you with a beautiful and shiny head of thicker hair.
3. Thickens Eyebrows and Eyelashes
Because castor oil is a follicle- stimulating and nourishing oil, it can help you if you’re trying to thicken your eyebrows and eyelashes. Castor oil has protein, vitamins, and fatty acids that feed the hair follicles nutrients and help the hair grow. Dip a cotton swab in castor oil and rub it into your eyebrows and rub it into your eyebrows every night before you go to bed. Keep doing this until your eyebrows reach a thickness you like.
4. Nourishes Dry Skin
Castor oil is a great lotion for dry skin. Because it can get so deep into the skin, it is great for treating dry, flaky skin patches. Because castor oil has so much fatty acid, it helps the skin stay healthy and glowing, and helps with skin conditions like dermatitis, which can cause very rough, dry skin. Castor oil also helps make elastin and collagen, which helps push off aging signs, and keeps your skin looking young.
5. Treats Brittle and Cracked Nails
This thick oil is also good for treating weak and cracked nails. The different vitamins and minerals in castor oil help the nails grow and make them strong. Also, because of its antifungal properties, it lessens the risk of fungal infection.
6. Softens Calluses
Because castor oil is such a thick oil, it’s a great moisturizer. It helps soften calluses by treating the dry, rough skin. When put on the hurt area, it helps build up the moisture and adds softness. It is also helpful for treating corns, and dry and cracked heels.
7. Prevents Stretch Marks
When used during pregnancy, castor oil can stop stretch marks from forming. It works as a humectant, helping your skin keep in moisture and keep elasticity. Also, the fatty acids in it help the skin create tissues to better the skin’s strength and texture.
8. Soothes Sunburn
Because castor oil is very soothing, and helps bring down swelling, it is very good for treating sunburns. The ricinoleic acid in it will protect any blisters from sunburns. Castor oil is also good for treating hyperpigmentation, and can clear the skin of spots and marks.
9. Repairs Split Ends
To control split ends, it’s very important to deeply condition your hair. It helps bring in moisture and betters the overall health of your hair. Castor oil is a good choice for deep conditioning.
10. Heals Chapped Lips
If you have dark and chapped lips, castor oil is very helpful. Because it’s a thick lotion, it keeps the lips moisturized and properly nourished. It can help treat chapped lips, and stop them from getting chapped. It will also keep your lips soft and pink. It’s actually used in some commercial lip care products.

You said not to get it into your eyes. I've heard on a few videos that it is actually good for your eyes. I've put it staight in my eyes and it didn't hurt. It's suppose to help with the whites of your eyes and even, with healing cateracs.
I added 1 tablespoon castor oil with 1 cup of milk and drank it during my whole 9th month of pregnancy my labor was as smooth and my son's skin and hair is amazing. ( castor oil may give diarrhea so plz be careful b4 consuming) i was use to it cuz we indians preserve our grains covered in castor oil
i used castor oil to get rid of my cataracts and floatees in my eyes....to put it in your eye you must only use 100% organic, cold pressed .....hexane and chemical free castor oil. that is the only one you can use in the eyes.
Haha right after the video i applied castor oil in my hair so i could leave it in overnight, massaged it into my nails, in my eyelashes, in my eyebrows, massaged on my face, and rubbed my lips together with th castor oil still on im so excited to see how all this turns up in the morning gn everyone❤❤😇

Hi, can I use it against Psoriasis??? I am getting crazy of the itching on my head, my hairloss of the flakes and even CRUSTS on my head ❗❗❗ I lost already all my hear and the so called "corticosteroids-shampoo" doesn't help permanently! And are so very BAD for your whole body ❗❗❗
I tried hairoil of Yves Rocher, but it didn't work either. Now I try a tip of NOT washing my hair at all, just with water! My Scalp-skin is so dry, I don't know what to do anymore.
Where can I buy Pure Castor-oil, the real one in Europe? I live in the Netherlands.
Thanks so much if you are able to answer me! ❇❗♥❗❇
I have a super oily skin. I rarely have acne but certain products can cause breakouts. I just recently joined a community theater and during our performance we had to apply very thick makeup. The performance lasted a whole day for three consecutive days. So as you can imagine I had to endure long hours of makeup covering my face and clogging my pores. Afterward I got breakouts. The acne has since disappeared but now I'm left with hideous dark acne spots (hypertropic post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation) on my face. :( I've been using various products to try to get rid of my acne spots without any visible satisfactory results. One of the problems is that since my skin is highly acne-prone, I have to be very careful about the stuff I use on my face/skin. Thus why I don't want to use TOO MUCH products on my face out of fear they will only make my skin condition worsen. I've been browsing through various youtuve videos to look for a safer remedy alternative and after I've encountered this one about castor oil and its benefits for hyperpigmentation and acne spots, I'm quite interested in trying it. But I still have my reservations though. Is it safe for oily and acne-prone skin or not? Should I try it or not? I wish someone would help me out here and answer my curiosities.
I heard that castor oil can also be used for weight loss because it can also act as a laxative. At least that's what I've heard. You take it a table spoon before bedtime every night. I wonder if there's some truth to it. I can't find any source that confirms this.
farhana ameem That's what I'd like to know myself too. I have a super oily skin. I rarely have acne but certain products can cause breakouts.

When I used it on my lips just to nourish them and get that pink moist heLthy look you speak of here, not bc to treat chapped lips bc they were not chapped they became very chapped and were burning the next day ;( any ides why that may be...? 😟
As far as everything else yes it works great and I love it!!! Thank you for all your amazing videos and yes very pleasant calming soothing voice and most of all keeping your videos straight to the point while still being completely thorough!!! I LOVE ❤️ YOUR VIDEOS THANK YOU, GREATLY APPRECIATED! ☺️
I remenber my Dad, who was from New Brunswick, Canada using it. I forgot about that until I went to buy it and was told to look in the laxative section. I think there are a lot of old cures that have been forgotten.
I have lot of facial hair. does applying castor oil during night time all over the face as a moisturizer, stimulate facial hair growth same as it does to eyebrows. please suggest should I use it or not.
