Castor Oil Benefits
Castor oil is rich in ricinoleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid. The oil promotes wound healing due to its moisturising properties and can prevent sores from drying out and becoming flaky. Ricinoleic acid has potent anti-inflammatory properties which can help to reduce pain and can stimulate the immune system.
Castor Oil Skin
The oil can be used with acne-prone skin because it is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory and has a low comedogenic score, so it won’t break you out.
HOW TO USE: Castor oil is very thick, so it is recommended you mix a few drops in with other oils such as jojoba oil, grapeseed oil when applying as a moisturiser to the face.
Castor Oil Hair
HOW TO USE: Great for dry and damaged hair as a potent conditioner, it can be applied in a small amount to the length of the hair. It can also help soothe dandruff on the scalp and a couple of drops can be massaged into the scalp.
For extra shine and nourishment for the beard, mix a few drops of castor oil with jojoba oil as recommended above.
To nourish your brows and lashes, use a clean makeup spoolie and brush a little castor oil through them at night.
