Castor oil, a thick, pale yellow oil derived from the castor plant (Ricinus communis), boasts a rich history of medicinal use dating back millennia. Evidence suggests the Egyptians used castor oil for everything from lamp fuel to cosmetics and even as a laxative, with its presence documented in ancient Egyptian tombs.

Edgar Cayce, a renowned 20th-century mystic and healer, offered a wealth of information on castor oil’s potential for treating various ailments. Cayce’s readings, known as the “Cayce readings,” detailed how castor oil packs, applied directly to the abdomen, could promote healing and detoxification.

Benefits of Castor Oil:

  • Laxative: Castor oil’s most well-established use is as a stimulant laxative. Ricinoleic acid, its primary fatty acid, acts on the intestines to induce a laxative effect.
  • Skin Health: Castor oil’s anti-inflammatory properties may benefit various skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, although more research is needed.
  • Hair Growth: Some people swear by castor oil for promoting thicker, healthier hair, though scientific evidence is limited.
  • Antimicrobial Activity: Studies suggest castor oil may possess antimicrobial properties, potentially aiding in wound healing.

Castor Oil and Detoxification:

Cayce’s teachings placed a strong emphasis on castor oil packs for liver health and detoxification. The theory suggests that applying a warm castor oil pack over the liver area increases circulation, promoting the release of toxins and impurities. While scientific research hasn’t definitively proven this mechanism, some studies suggest castor oil may support liver function.

To use Queen of the Thrones Original Castor Oil Packs, you can:
  1. Apply one tablespoon of organic golden castor oil to the soft cotton side of the pack.
  2. Place the pack over your abdomen, under your right rib cage.
  3. Use the long, soft straps to tie the pack in place.
  4. Wear the pack for one hour a day or overnight.
