Product Description

Castor Oil Finest Quality - 1 Quart - Shipped in 1 Quart Container Supplied in High Quality HDPE Quart Safety Sealed Container. Add in small quantities to increases the soap lather and it adds extra moisturizing qualities. Too much Castor can make your soap soft and sticky. Castor Oil - ricinus communis Latin Derived from the castor bean and obtained by cold pressure, is rich in fatty acids and very moisturizing and lubricating to the skin in general. It acts as a humectant, attracting moisture to the skin. Castor oil packs applied with warm flannel are believed effective for pain relief and to draw out cysts, boils and warts. Ayurvedic medicine uses castor oil for lumbago, sciatica and rheumatism. In the Canary Islands the oil is used to prevent sore nipples in nursing mothers and is also rubbed onto their scalps to prevent post natal hair loss. In soapmaking, although castor oil would appear to require less sodium hydroxide, it sometimes requires more due to its high ricinoleic acid content. It is also a well-known superfatting agent and well suited for shampoo bars and skin-care products. Without other oils, it produces a transparent soft soap. In combination with over vegetable oils, however, it makes a wonderfully emollient, hard bar of soap.

Works great in making my soaps and creams.

After hearing that castor oil could be used to treat a skin tag, I decided to give this a try. My dog had a skin tag on his nose, and while I was skeptical about this treatment, I figured it couldn't hurt. I dabbed the skin tag with castor oil twice a day for about two weeks. And the skin tag dried up, and just fell off like a scab. No mark left behind. The vet is going to be amazed!

Wow. This oil has made a visible difference in the texture of my daughters hair. I lather her hair with this oil and immediately her hair is softer, smoother, and takes on a different texture. Great product..

What can I say. It's Castor Oil. It does what I need it to do in soap making. But I must say that Essential Depot is very, very quick when it comes to shipping. I highly recommend them

I give it 5 stars because it worked well on my hair. I am african-american, and I chose to go natural 8 months ago. My hair became dry, so I use castor oil to seal in the moisture on my hair.

As a professional deep-tissue massage therapist, castor oil is my massage oil of choice. I order a lot of this product for my clinic.

I used this product to make my first batch of homemade soap. I must say I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and in myself for making the soap. I live in Las Vegas, and my family and I have a problem with dry skin. So, I set out to make a moisturizing soap for us that wouldn't dry out our skin. Mission Accomplished.

As a Prime member, I purchased this product to use with as a facial cleanser (oil cleaning method) for our family. This was a lot of product for a good price and free S&H w/ Prime. I will purchase this product again and would make additional purchases with them.
