The Healing Benefits of Castor Oil are numerous.
I put up a post with the title ‘Ideas For Using Castor Oil’ several years ago. I don’t know why the article has disappeared, but here is an attempt at a rewrite of that post:
Regrow Hair and Condition the Scalp:
One of the most common uses for castor oil is as a hair generator. If castor oil is massaged into the scalp once a week, left on for several hours if possible, or overnight with a wrap over the head, then massaged out with a good organic soap or shampoo, the hair will shine. It might also begin to grow back again in places where it is thinning out.
As A Cancer Treatment and Cancer Preventative:
Dr Max Gerson famously used castor oil in his natural cancer treatments for cancer and other diseases. He used two tablespoons of castor oil in one dose, taken every alternate day. With this treatment, he also used enemas, to clear the bowels quickly of toxic matter which had been released from the liver with the castor oil.
Castor oil has the capacity to draw out poisons from the liver and other organs, and is a valuable healing medicine because of this quality.
Castor Oil To Treat Candida:
Castor oil works well as an antibacterial, antifungal method to reduce candida overgrowth. One dose of one or two tablespoons of Castor oil taken with a cup of black coffee should fix the problem if there are no complications. Best to see your doctor or naturopath before trying this though – an enema is usually recommended after taking castor oil. (see Gerson)
As A Treatment For Skin Lesions:
Castor oil can reduce skin lesions such as warts if applied regularly. It can also help athlete’s foot if castor oil is rubbed into the affected area. Castor oil can help prevent athlete’s foot if it is used occasionally between the toes. It works well as an anti-fungal agent.
As A Lubricant For Metals:
In the absence of proper machine oil, castor oil can be used to prevent metal from rusting, and also to prevent wear and tear. Bicycle chains, for instance, work very well with a coating of castor oil.

Merrilyn’s book is out on Amazon. This has more detailed information on the use of Castor oil for helping to prevent and treat cancer.
