Internally: Castor oil should be taken on an empty stomach, in a carefully measured dosage as prescribed by your health care practitioner or pharmacist. You can also mix it with juice to improve the taste. Dosage will vary depending on your age and medical needs; do not exceed recommended dosage, and do not take for more than 7 days at a time unless otherwise directed.
Topically: Castor oil can be applied directly to the skin and hair. Massage a small amount into the affected area.
Not suitable for pregnant women; castor oil is commonly used to induce labour, so pregnant women should avoid it unless otherwise instructed by a health care professional.

I am pleasantly surprised by the quality of oil. I purchased it to mix with Sweet Almond oil to do the facial oil cleansing method. So far, my skin is feeling softer. Will only buy this oil from Faithful-to-Nature from now on.
Not sure what to do with this now?
05 Sep, 2016, By Janine
Even mixed with almond oil, caster oil is just too sticky for my hair. I had to shampoo it out 4 times and that left my hair horribly dry. Im now not sure what to do with it. Its nice and thick so it must be good for something. Can it be put directly on the skin, as its very thick wont it clog the skin?

Just received mine! Will be using this as an ayurvedic castor oil pack for period cramps/endo/cysts, will keep you updated!

I didn know that it would be so thick, but Im really glad that it is - its going to go a long way and my face and hair is going to benefit from it. I haven been using it long enough to notice any changes yet, but Im 100% certain that there are going to be. Looking forward to seeing the magic: )

If Only People Knew
05 Apr, 2016, By Lungisa
Castor oil is synonymous with very bad childhood memories. In fact, truth be told, I can not handle the smell or the texture...it is just vile. HOWEVER, this is one of the greatest healers out there, hands down.Let me count the ways...
1. My skin glows
2. my dark cirlcles are history
3. my hair thrives
4.you have aches and pains? do not fret, just massage castor oil and you are good to go.
5. Internally, if you dare (eish...), it is a powerful:
b, bacterial and
c, viral KILLER
IT WILL GIVE YOU MAJOR SHI*TS! Well, where do you expect the bad guys to go? Anyway..
d. if you have a respiratory problems it will help expel phelm from your lungs.
There are so many other beauty related benefits that others have already mentioned, therefore I won bore you.

Thicker Brows and Lashes?
18 Feb, 2016, By Maryann
I have been using the castor oil on my eyebrows and eyelashes for about 2 weeks now. Love the fact that the oil is quite thick so it does not run and I can leave it on all night and then wash it off in the morning.
02 Feb, 2016, By Angel
Ive been using it for about half a week on my eyelashes, and its great. I can already see thicker lashes. Hopefully after a few months my lashes will also be longer. Thanks for the great service!
It did wonders for my skin
28 Jan, 2016, By Gomotsegang
I have been using it for 2 weeks now and I can see the improvement on my used to be dry skin. This Castor oil is great!
Good product! #9734;

I use it on my scalp because of hair loss. I use a syringe, without needle of course, to squirt it directly on my scalp. Ive got a long way to go before Ill see big results. Thus far Ive noticed that my hair has more body than before and there are fewer hair in the bath tub. I actually like the thick sticky oil because it doesn run and I can keep it on my head for as long as I want.
04 Jan, 2016, By Glenda
I use this oil on my lashes brows as is found that my lashes are a bit longer my brows a little thicker.I use it on my hair as well,mixed with another oil...it leaves my hair feeling soft silky my hair is growing quite quickly too.Luv this product.Definitely recommended.

The oil is very thick and feels sticky so definitely something to keep in mind, it works very well though.
The best castor oil!!
19 Nov, 2015, By Nompumelelo
This castor oil is the best!! I use it on my hair and it leaves it feeling soft and moisturised. Ive only used it for a week, so I hope that it will thicken my hair as i continue to use it.
I also use this on my 4 year old sons skin, which is very dry and flacky, and it works like a charm.
Great valus for money!!
the hype is real
06 Sep, 2015, By lucy
this is high quality castor oil and there is a very big difference between this oil and regular store bought castor oil. This oils does wonders for my high porosity black hair leaving it smooth and soft
28 Aug, 2015, By Louise
I will never need to look for another castor oil again. I find it quite thick, but that is no problem. Instead of applying directly to skin, I mix it with some of my homemade body butter and it works perfectly. I do apply it directly to my hair, but only when wet. It truly is rich and perfect for thicker, healthier hair and nourished skin.
Affordable, long-lasting and worth every penny. Im happy :)

Good for my skin
02 Jul, 2014, By sweet_malva
Ive started using this product a week ago.saw a youtube video that encourages the use of castor oil on ethnic hair. bought it for my hair but ended up using it on my face. I must say its very good on my face and good even when I apply make up. My hair is still plaited so Ill have to post a hair related review on it.
Glad I found it.

This oil works very well on my dry kinky hair.
Multi-purpose beauty tool
05 Jun, 2014, By Julia
Castor oil might not sound very glam, but its actually a pretty impressive multi-purpose beauty tool. I recently started using it as a chemical-free anti-wrinkle ointment, lip plumper, brow gel and lash booster! Plus you only need a drop or two at a time, so it lasts for ages.
I have dry eyes and use this daily for relief - advice from my homeopath.
05 Nov, 2013, By Preba
I have dry eyes and use this daily for relief - advice from my homeopath. Works better than expensive conventional dry eye medication. Sorts out pimples in a hurry too. Ive mixed it with Vit E and Aloe Vera Gel and have seen a difference in the length and thickness of my eyelashes.
