InterBio’s suave 100% pure castor oil comes from the Ricinus communis beans, and is extracted by pressing the beans, thus extracting all its nutrients in the oil. Castor seeds have been cultivated for many centuries since its introduction into China from its original home India, 1,400 years ago! Castor is a great essential oil since it contains many healthy fatty acids, and serves many uses; from soothing and re-hydrating dry skin, and curing many skin ailments; all the way to making a great ingredient when your own conditioners. It mixes super well with other essential oils, and has a very light and soft feel on your skin and hair.
The many uses of castor oil
Spot-treat skin conditions
Castor oil is actually a great natural treatment for many skin issues such as acne, warts and skin tags. Although warts are known as a symptom of a viral condition, skin tags and acne are present due to bacteria and infection coming into contact with your skin; this is why the areas are usually sensitive and a bit inflamed. Acne can be a real issue, and can persist for years. If you are looking to treat your skin with natural remedies (which is highly recommended), castor oil should be one of the ingredients you choose to use since it contains anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. If you want a super remedy, mix it with another essential oil or two to give it even more healing properties.
Promote hair growth with castor oil
When you massage castor oil into your scalp, it will become warm with the friction and will actually improve your over-all hair growth. It is also packed with minerals, so using it will also aid in keeping your scalp healthy and hydrated. Castor will also help end dandruff, since it will create a nice moisturizing barrier, and will keep your scalp from getting too dry. So, if you want to show your scalp and hair some love, we highly recommend castor oil!
Lose that stubborn weight with castor oil
Although nothing helps you lose weight like a healthy diet and daily exercise, you can also aid your body by eating certain foods, or in this case, oils. Due to castor oil’s high content of fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, it makes it much easier for your body to break down fats, thus aiding the weight loss process. A fun fact about castor oil is that it also serves as a natural laxative, so be careful about taking too much right before your work out!
