Because of its molecular density, castor oil absorbs very well into the skin making it an extremely effective moisturizer.

A castor oil pack is made by soaking a piece of flannel in castor oil then putting it on the area of complaint and placing a heat source, such as a hot water bottle, on top of the area. Castor oil packs are extremely powerful. Castor oil works from the outside in! The oil sinks through the epidermis and actually provides internal healing and detoxification effects. Castor oil is so powerful that it is said it can even induce labor.
