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.
Be cautious when experimenting with castor oil; some users have been known to experience side effects. We highly recommend that you only use castor oil under proper medical supervision.
