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.05/09/2016, By JanineEven 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?16/08/2016, By AntoinetteJust received mine! Will be using this as an ayurvedic castor oil pack for period cramps/endo/cysts, will keep you updated!07/07/2016, By TanyaI 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.

Thank you - Paula27/04/2016, By CheriI used to use the Dischem castor oil on my hair - but since experiencing true organic castor oil - I wont go back. I use it on my scalp and have noticed a real difference :)07/04/2016, By charleneworks wonders for my skin and hair will be purchasing again in the future05/04/2016, By LungisaCastor 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.19/03/2016, By JuandreMy Lashes are longer hair feels very soft longer ...Love this product best so far!!!08/03/2016, By KefilweIm loving the effect it has on my skin and hair.18/02/2016, By MaryannI have been using the castor oil on my eyebrows and eyelashes for about 2 weeks now.

This Castor oil is great!25/01/2016, By RhonaI 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.04/01/2016, By GlendaI 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.22/12/2015, By JacoThe oil is very thick and feels sticky so definitely something to keep in mind, it works very well though.19/11/2015, By NompumeleloThis 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.

Great valus for money!!06/09/2015, By lucythis 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 soft28/08/2015, By LouiseI 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.

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.05/11/2013, By PrebaI 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.
