Castor Oil Pack

How do You Make a Castor Oil Pack?


You will need castor oil and clean (boiled or laundered) cotton or wool flannel cloth.

> Fold the cloth to make a pack size to fit over the affected area.

> Saturate it with castor oil, which can be preheated if desired.

> Place the pack over the desired area and cover with a piece of plastic wrap.

Wrapping an ace bandage around the pack can help hold it in place if needed.

> Place a heating pad over the wrap/pack. (Using a towel will help protect bedding.)

> Allow the pack to remain in place for an hour or longer (but AVOID falling asleep when the heating pad is on).

> Once pack is removed, clean skin with a solution made of 1 teaspoon of baking soda in water.

Between uses, store cloth in a cool place in a sealed plastic bag or container. Wash cloth as needed and discard when you want.

Use the pack daily or on a regular cycle until desired results are obtained.

They’ve done the research!

I love this store! I can always count on them to have a healthy, safe alternative. It is a huge relief to walk into a store and buy whatever you want without having to worry about if you’re ingesting poison. Also, the employees are always really helpful and knowledgeable about their products.

Outstanding Staff!

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL STORE AND CUSTOMER SERVICE. As a new vegan, they were able to show me various foods and things to enjoy. They answered all my questions with a smile and made me feel important. GREAT GREAT PLACE.

Great business with great people!

We have done business with Mother Earth Foods almost since its inception. I have seen a lot of changes through the years. All of them working toward offering more products and services for their customers. They research the products they sell and only sell the best. Anytime I have gone in asking for a product for a particular issue, the employees could steer me toward what I needed to address that issue I was having. As far as I am concerned this is the ONLY true health food store in our area. They will always have my continued patronage. Thank you for striving to provide the best for your customers.
