Castor oil is considered a warm oil that promotes the circulation of fluids in the body.
It is excellent as massage oil, and can relieve the soreness resulting from overworking the muscles.
If you have aching calf and thigh muscles after vigorous exercise or active sports practice, apply a little castor oil on the sore area and rub it in.
The analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of ricinoleic acid which constitutes almost 90% of castor oil have been well documented.
A major part of it comes from its decongestant action on the lymphatic system.
Massaging just any part of the body with castor oil does not result in extra hair growth, but applying it to the scalp does.
The mechanism at work could be the ability of this warm oil to improve circulation. Heat the oil until it is hot to touch, and then allow it to cool for a bit.
While it is still warm, apply the oil to your scalp with your fingertips, massaging it in.
If it is done every night, you will see the difference in as little as two weeks.
If you have scanty eyebrows, the oil can be applied with the tip of a cotton ear bud to the eyebrow ridge.
Hair will grow denser there, and you can shape the eyebrows as usual. Castor oil can be applied in areas that have lost hair due to alopecia.
The anti-inflammatory property of the oil may work against this autoimmune disorder.
