Castor oil is derived from castor beans (Ricinus communis) and is used externally with packing fabric as a naturopathic technique to support health.
Use:Open the packing fabric (Product Code: NC007) and fold into three. Soak the fabric with the castor oil and apply the pack to the liver area first for around 30 minutes, securing in place with cling film. Place a hot water bottle on the castor oil pack and rest in a quiet place for the allotted time. You can then move the pack to your chosen area, packing for another 30 - 60 minutes, or as directed by a practitioner. The pack can be placed back into the plastic bag provided and stored in the fridge. The castor oil pack can be re-used up to 30 times. Apply extra castor oil to the pack as needed on each application.
Storage:Once opened store in fridge.
Cautions:Keep out of reach of children. Do not use if lid seal is broken. Not recommended for use during menstruation or pregnancy. Castor oil is for external use only. Do not consume.
