How To Make A Castor Oil Pack

For Menstrual Cramps, Fertility, Detoxing, Fibroids, and Muscle Pain

period-pain-1Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Ayurvedic medicine, and naturopathy recommend castor oil packs for the ability to promote healing and reduce inflammation.

Castor oil packs are effective for relieving all kinds of physical pain (menstrual cramps, muscular and joint pain, arthritis), detoxing organs (especially the liver), and addressing fibroids (including fibroid pain and shrinking them), among its many uses. They are also excellent for promoting fertility, as it stimulates healthy circulation in the reproductive area, which is important for clearing out toxins and old blood.

Prior to your bleed, when you are getting cramps, just apply a pack over the lower abdomen, and relax, whilst the pack does its work.  It feels wonderful to take care of yourself and allow yourself some self-care and nourishment.

Castor oil packs are also effective for all kinds of muscular and joint pain, you can just apply it where the pain is.

A study published in the Journal of Naturopathic Medicine in 1997 found that daily use of castor oil packs can increase the production of T-lymphocytes, which plays an important part in your immune system. 

In addition to increasing the immune system, it appears to have a calming effect on the autonomic nervous system, increases liver activity, and improves digestion.

The packs are easy to make, all you need are several layers of flannel and cold-pressed castor oil, both of which can be purchased online or from a local health food store. When placed on the affected area, the pack acts as a poultice to draw out impurities and promote healing.
