Castor Oil has a long history of use dating back to early Egyptian and Roman cultures. It is very thick and viscous which makes it useful in conditions where moisture needs to be locked in or out. It is too thick to be used as a carrier oil for massage but has reported uses in topical treatments for liver and age spots, and warts. We have reported success from customers who used Castor Oil to get rid of skin tags (it takes consistent use for a few months). Castor has been indicated for use in cases of acnes, eczema, psoriasis and rashes.
