4. Who Shouldn’t Use A Castor Oil Pack for Liver Detox.
This is where castor oil comes in. When castor oil is absorbed through your skin (according to Cayce and McGarey) your lymphocyte count increases. Increased lymphocytes speed up the removal of toxins from your tissues, which promotes healing.
Ricinoleic acid, a major component in castor oil, has analgesic properties, which may help soothe sunburns, bug bites, or allergic rashes.
Using castor oil packs over the liver is a time honored tradition. Many schools of traditional medicine have used castor to help support optimized liver function, to improve detoxification and to reduce inflammation in the liver. I often recommend that patients do a castor pack 1-2 times/week (or more!) to help support their liver if they’re dealing with mental health concerns, hormonal imbalance, detoxification issues or actual liver organ issues, like fatty liver. Note that this is in addition to other supports for liver health, not as a stand-alone treatment. Castor is great, but it’s not that powerful!

I massaged about 5-10 minutes, then I put down an old piece of fabric (the square of an old H&M t-shirt or a small white towel that will only serve that purpose), I put my hot water bottle over and I let it work for an hour. I take this opportunity to watch a tv series or read a good book.
People use this against a number of ailments, including skin conditions, blood circulation problems, and digestive issues.
