Have you heard of Castor Oil Packs?
I hadn’t either until I visited my Naturopathic Dr, I’ve learned a lot from her.
Using this pack has proven to work in more ways than one!
To help with inflammation, circulation, and resolution of my ovarian cysts (yeah, those are fun) I was encouraged to use this pack on my lower abdomen as part of a new nightly routine.
If you look up Castor Oil packs you’ll find there are a lot of other benefits to them as well… particularly for sore and achy muscles.
After researching some of those benefits I used the pack on my son when he was having issues pooping, I applied the oil to his tummy, put the towel over it and applied the heating pad for 20 minutes. The hard part was getting him to hold still. Within a few short hours his poop was the best it had been in dayz! Pooping kids are happy kids! #momlife
What you need
All it takes is a heating pad, a cloth or rag you don’t mind getting stained, and the Castor Oi. FYI – the rag is good to use without washing for several weeks.
How to apply
Apply the Castor Oil in clockwise motion (it’s thick and sticky) to the area of concern, cover with your rag, apply the heating pad for 20 minutes and then whala!
The oils soaks in really well. I have not had to wipe away any access after the 20 minutes.
This is a new part of my nightly routine and I’ve been loving it! I find it to be relaxing and soothing. I will be suing this method for quite a few things going forward!
