Castor Oil Pack
By Steven Horne, RH (AHG) & Kimberly Balas, ND

Castor oil packs are used topically to break up congestion and help to soften hardened tissue. To make a castor oil pack you will need:

1/4 cup castor oil
8 drops essential oil such as lavender (optional)
A soft cloth

Combine the castor oil and the essential oil. Soak the cloth in the oil so the cloth is saturated, but not dripping.
Fold the cloth and place it in a baking dish and put the dish in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. The cloth should be warm, but not hot. As an alternative, you can heat the oil and the cloth in a crock pot. This is slower, but produces a more steady heat.

Place the folded cloth directly over the painful area. Cover it with a towel to keep it warm. You can also put a hot water bottle over the pack to help the pack stay warm longer. Use the pack once a day for 30 to 60 minutes. Rinse off the oil after each use.
