Sprains and Repetitive Strain
Massage direct to affected area to support effective recovery from sprains and injury. Also around the joints to assist healthy circulation, which may be especially useful for stiffness and pain related to RSI. Add a teaspoon of Arnica infused oil and a few drops Lavender for added healing and soothing benefit.
Arthritis and Rheumatic Pain
Castor oil has nourishing and anti-inflammatory properties that support natural healing and restoration in damaged joints. Combine 1tsp with 5 drops of Juniper Berry and German Chamomile to create a deeply therapeutic night time treatment.
Soak a clean, organic, colour-free cotton cloth in warm Castor oil and place it on the right side of the abdomen. Put plastic over the cloth, a towel and then a hot water bottle and rest for up to 2 hours. Rinse with water and baking soda. Repeat 3 times a week for up to 3 months.
Castor oil can be simply, gently warmed and massaged onto the stomach in a clockwise direction. Or applied (as for detox above) on a warm pack.
Safety Considerations: Do not apply to broken skin. NOT for use during pregnancy, breastfeeding, or during menstrual flow. NOT recommended for ingestion (consult a qualified health practitioner). Avoid eyes, flush with water. Keep out of reach of children.
