What is Castor Vegetal Oil: Castor oil has long been used commercially as a highly renewable resource for the chemical industry. It is a vegetable oil obtained by pressing the seeds of the castor oil plant ( Ricinus communis .) a shrub belonging to the Euphorbiaceae family that is mainly cultivated in Africa, South America, and India. Major castor oil-producing countries include Brazil, China, and India. This oil is known to have been domesticated in Eastern Africa and was introduced to China from India approximately 1,400 years ago.  Castor oil is widely used in cosmetics as a nutrient and softening agent, when spread on the skin it forms a film that greatly reduces the evaporation of skin's moisture and consequently prevents its dehydration. Castor oil has a close affinity with keratin, the main constituent of hair and nails, which is why it is recognized for its strengthening, restorative and softening properties for the eyelashes, hair and nails. It can be used as a massage oil, on its own or blended with other oils, as the base oil for essential oils, as a fatty component in cosmetic products and in the production of soaps, where it adds consistency and transparency. It is a safe ingredient that can be applied on the skin in any concentration.

The oil is a stimulant laxative. When you ingest castor oil, it causes your bowels to move a lot more. Be wary of the dosage, though. A typical dose is 15 ml, which equals about 3 teaspoons. You should experience bowel movements within 2 to 3 hours after taking the oil. Using castor oil for treating constipation may also lead to nausea or vomiting. This is a normal side effect. But if you experience too much of it, stop use and visit your doctor. Arthritis Pain:    Try massaging painful areas with castor oil followed by a hot water pack to increase absorption and drainage. Practicing this process twice weekly can give you the best pain-reducing results. For Beauty:   Acne and Scars: Cleanse your face. Moisten a clean washcloth with lukewarm water and add a couple of drops of the oil to it. Gently rub the cloth over your face in circular motions. You can follow this method before going to bed. Allow the castor oil to stay on your face overnight. You can wash it off the following morning. But if you have oily skin, use castor oil very sparingly. This method can be used for treating scars too. It might help treat skin inflammation and even soothe irritated skin. Applying liberal amounts of the oil can help fade stretch marks too. Apply castor oil to the affected areas both morning and night. Castor oil can also ease sunburns. It has an SPF value of around 6 and is often used in sunscreens.    Delays Signs of Aging: You can use the oil under your eyes, around your mouth, on your forehead, and on the chin and neckline. Wash these areas in the morning and apply a drop of castor oil. Gently massage and leave it on for about 20 minutes. Wash off with normal water. You can then follow up with your regular skin care routine.    Hair Growth: Massage the slightly warmed-up oil into your hair and scalp, and it can improve the blood circulation to your follicles to hopefully speed up hair growth. You can try making a homemade hair mask by massaging the oil into your roots and spreading it all over your hair, tying up your hair and covering it with a cap, then leaving the oil on overnight before washing it out.     For strong and long eyelashes: With an eyelash brush, apply a very fin film of oil to eyelashes every evening for at least two months a year, preferably in the spring and/or autumn.    For Strong Nails: To strengthen nails: place hands in cotton gloves that have been soaked in a mixture of Sweet Almond Oil and Castor Oil. Leave gloves on all night while sleeping.    A Natural Moisturizer: Castor oil is often used in cosmetics to promote hydration and often added to products like lotions, makeup and cleansers. You can also use this rich oil on its own as a natural alternative to store-bought moisturizers and lotions. Castor oil is thick, so it’s frequently mixed with other skin-friendly oils like almond , olive and coconut oil to make an ultra-hydrating moisturizer.    Castor Vegetal Oil Precautions: Many people use castor oil to treat a variety of issues, either by ingesting the oil or applying it to the skin. Although castor oil is generally considered safe, it can cause adverse reactions and unwanted side effects in some people: Can induce labor: It’s used by medical professionals to induce birth. For this reason, women at all stages of pregnancy should avoid consuming castor oil. Can cause diarrhea: While it can be an effective way to alleviate constipation, you may get diarrhea if you take too much. Diarrhea can cause dehydration and electrolyte imbalances.

First try applying a small amount to a tiny patch of skin to see how your body reacts.    First Aid Measures: Eye:  No specific first aid measures are required because this material is  not expected to cause eye irritation.
