Castor oil is a type of vegetable oil that was derived from Castor Beans. It is considered as a miracle cure as it aids in hair growth, skin care and labour induction. The good thing about this product is that it is readily available on the Internet. With regular use, castor oil is believed to improve the density of hair and stimulate hair growth. It improves the blood circulation in the scalp, locking in moisture and nourishing the hair roots with essential fatty acids. No wonder it is such a popular hair treatment. Castor oil also provides a number of benefits for skin care. It is known to kill pathogens that can cause skin problems, moisturises dry, flaky and itchy skin, as well as softening and soothing dry and irritated skin. It is also used for the prevention, treatment and healing of acne. It can also minimise acne scars. Castor oil removes bacteria, dirt, dead skin cells, excess oil and other nasty stuff that clog the pores. Lastly, castor oil is believed to induce labour on expectant mothers. When a mother has reached her full term and there are no apparent signs of labour, she could take castor oil orally to trigger the onset of labour. Thatâs because it helps muscle contraptions in the intestines, which stimulates contractions in the uterus.
