Like My Mamaw Used to Say: "Castor Oil."
Have used castor oil for years for a multitude of reasons. We always have a bottle in the cupboard. I loved what you said about the over-utilization of medical practices. No one in our house has seen a doctor in decades. I have a 12 year old who has never met one. We simply do not use them, prefering natural medicine. Somehow we made it through the muzzling, poisoning and quarantining of the 'healthy' without any of us having so much as a cold in over five years, despite both myself and my husband working with the public everyday through every lockdown. We were and still are, treated like we have the plague because of our refusal to partake in quackery and have always been seen as weirdos because we're not running into doctors every other day, and doused with pharmaceuticals. Fair play to you Cindy, for promoting natural medicine.
A few other oils definitely worth mentioning: wheat germ oil, cod liver oil and oil of oregano. Many years ago my dog got distemper, wouldn't eat, drink and couldn't even stand up. The vet examined him and said it is distemper, and we need to just 'put him down'. I refused that idea, took him home and force-fed him nothing but cod liver oil and wheat germ oil. It took one week, and he completely recovered and lived many more years totally healthy. Oil of oregano has antibiotic properties, as well.
That's funny...I just bought some and have not used it yet. I was a bit worried it would clog my pours. Good to know about it and thank you!
All I ever knew about castor oil was that it tastes terrible, but now I plan to get some and use it for just about everything you mentioned. Thanks for the great info!
I LOVE castor oil and use on my face everyday. Castor oil packs are incredibly helpful for a multitude of ailments. Queen of Thrones is what I recommend to my clients.
She is a naturopath that has done a great job eliminating the mess factor that makes castor oil packs difficult to use consistently. And her products are affordable and high quality. I use her stuff regularly!
Thanks for this post ♥️
I have used a "castor pack" to good effect (ie, castor oil soaked into an old cotton tee shirt or rag topped with hot water bottle or a heating pad (preferred) wrapped around the belly while laying down. For a half hour or so.
very interesting -- yours, Cindy, and all the comments.
I always thought Castor oil had a terrible smell and taste. But when I looked it up, it said that it was tasteless. Thanks for the info Cindy. Have you ever tried red beet powder or beet juice? It is high in nitric oxide, so it allows the tissues to be oxygenated. It also lowers blood pressure. And it can help with wound healing .
Love it! Have used it on skin for years. FYI: Edgar Cayce, a very famous intuitive and clairvoyant, recommended castor oil as one of the most important healing agents. At the Edgar Cayce Institute they recommend it being used on “a pack” on effected areas. Applied to cotton with some type of cover to keep oil off clothing or bedding. Glad to see this post and all the different health and well-being uses. Thanks
Cindy, even though I've interviewed you more than once, I don't believe I knew you were fired from your job after Casey was killed. Was this a response to your antiwar activism? Thanks.
I want to try this! Especially for sleep! Where is the best place to buy castor oil?
Thanks for this!!!

It was a popular home remedy featured in "The Little Rascals" films from the early days of cinema, as well... The kids didn't seem to be fans, but I think that had to do with flavor.
My Tong Ren guide talks about castor oil all the time! I'm going to pay closer attention. Thanks for the info!
Too much to write here. But it was reading her book plus Bernie Siegel, M.D.’s book Love, Medicine and Miracles that enlightened and gave me the courage to question “corporate medical establishment”. My first medical procedure began at the age of 4 when my tonsils were removed. I still remember the “rag” of chloroform coming at me to sedate me. 1954.
