Herbal medicine dates back to the ancient Sumerians. There are written records which herbs such as laurel, caraway and thyme were used by this civilization. Castor oil, coriander, garlic, mint and opium were used by the ancient Egyptians, according to current herbal texts.
Although castor oil, obtained from the castor oil bean, has been used for thousands of years in the healing arts of the Ancient Egyptians, Ayurvedic practitioners and Chinese and Tibetan medicines, it became popular again through the writings of Edgar Cayce and Dr. Max Gerson. These healers reinvented it as an effective treatment for many diseases in the earlier part of the 20th century. Max Gerson is famous for his use of castor oil in his treatment of cancer.
Castor oil is effective, not just in treating cancer and other disease, but in treating candida and poisoning of any kind. One of the best ways to detoxify the body from exposure to chemicals, and to treat candida, is with castor oil and high doses of non-acidic vitamin C. Of course, these two items are not taken together, but are separated from each other in the dosage.
Taking a small amount of castor oil before breakfast can have a beneficial effect on the health. If you take it fairly regularly, then you will absorb some of the oil into your body, which will help the vital organs, help the skin and hair, and help the healing of long-standing conditions.
Conditions which may be helped by taking a few drops of castor oil each morning before breakfast are: colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, eczema, psoriasis, arthitic bone ache, weak eyesight, and falling hair. Of course, adequate diet and exercise and meditation must also be sustained to effect proper healing. Don’t forget the enema when using castor oil internally. Even with a small dose of castor oil, an enema once or twice a week is recommended.
Castor-oil-jelly formula: This mixture is ideal for treating skin conditions and for using as a hair and scalp conditioner. It helps clear up dandruff.

Don’t forget the enema if you use the castor oil jelly internally.
However, it is best to take castor oil in the usual way, one to two tablespoons at a time, if you have a serious disease such as cancer, or require a laxative effect, as castor oil taken in this jelly form is not potent enough to detoxify the bowel as well. Note that this uses gelatine which is an animal product. If you are vegetarian, you will have to find a vegetable gelatine instead. A good option is to use agar agar, which is a sea weed. This is very nutritious and will set just as well as gelatine.
Note: Castor oil jelly made with either gelatine or agar agar will keep no more than about three days in the fridge. If you haven’t used the jelly after three days, then use it only externally, for hair and skin treatments, as suggested below.
Reminder: Most packaged gelatine has sulphur dioxide added as a preservative, which means it should not be taken too often.

- Put four tablespoons of fairly hot water into a half pint sized bowl.
- Sprinkle on one and a half tablespoons of gelatine or agar agar powder. Let this sink, and then stir it in until it has dissolved.
- Let the mixture cool a little. It should be warm, but not cold for the next step.
- Now stir in one and a half tablespoons of castor oil. As the mixture cools, you will need to keep mixing so that the castor oil gets emulsified properly into the gelatine mixture.
- When it is nice and thick, and just about to set, pour the mixture into a flat small dish about six inches in diameter, so that you can easily cut slices of the castor oil jelly once it has set.
To use, simply cut a slice of the castor oil jelly and take each morning on an empty stomach, before your breakfast. I think one or two tablespoonsful of the jelly is a good amount to use, but you can decide on the dose yourself. Just cut up a slice into small pieces, just big enough to swallow down in chunks with your cup of herbal tea, or ceylon tea, or coffee.
Cut up the rest into slices and put in a screw top jar. Keep the remainder in the fridge. Take every morning until finished.
