Benefits

May support less stress. The gentle compression of the pack on the body may promote the love and connection hormone, oxytocin, similar to a weighted blanket or a warm hug. Oxytocin helps balance cortisol (the stress hormone) and naturally shifts the body into the relaxed state. This can’t be done with Castor Oil alone, the pack is a must!

May promote relaxation. The luxurious feeling of the soft cotton pack and the oil on the skin lights up the pleasure centers of your brain and may promote dopamine, a feel-good hormone that helps us feel satisfied.

May support inflammation balance. Castor Oil contains 90% ricinoleic acid, a fatty acid that has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties via a reduction of substance P.

May support liver detox. When the pack is worn over the liver area, the gentle compression stimulates somatovisceral reflexes activated via dermatomes and Traditional Chinese Medicine meridian that are thought to be connected to detox and cleansing organs including the liver, gallbladder, stomach, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, adrenals, small and large intestines, and colon. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the time of liver detox is between 1-3 am, so they’re best worn overnight.

May support lymphatic drainage. With inhalation and exhalation, the gentle compression from the pack acts as a pump for the lymph that’s highly concentrated in the liver area, and may help support lymphatic drainage.

May support colon cleansing, constipation and better bowel movements. Oral Castor Oil is a well known laxative, however, a study done in an old age home compared Castor Oil Packs to conventional laxatives and they were shown to be just as effective for constipation, but without cramping and a harsh urgency to run to the bathroom. Ricinoleic acid has also been shown to support peristalsis of the smooth muscle of the digestive tract.

May support deeper sleep. Your new nightly routine caresses your curves and hugs your body like a weighted blanket as you wind down in the evening, slide under the covers and drift off into a deep sleep. Your pack is so comfortable you can cleanse while you sleep.

May support hormone balance. Period problems, thyroid imbalance, PCOS, infertility, endometriosis, and menopause are all improved when liver detox, lymphatic drainage and colon cleansing functions are supported. Regular nightly Castor Oil Packs may help naturally support hormones by balancing the environment for optimized function.

May support microbiome balance. Research in periodontal medicine has shown that Castor Oil is one of the only natural substances that can breakdown biofilm, a protective layer made by bad bacteria to prevent us from killing it. Castor Oil has also been shown to kill Candida.

May support digestion and less bloating. Can be placed over the liver and abdomen acutely when symptoms of visceral discomfort are present. The pack helps to promote a feeling of calm and relaxation, while balancing inflammation6 and supporting good flow to the area.

May support better blood flow/circulation to the liver. Castor Oil has been shown to promote nitric oxide, an antioxidant that supports better blood flow and circulation. Nitric oxide has also been shown to kill Candida.

May support anxiety. Like the escape button on your computer, the Castor Oil Pack helps you instantly leave a place of stress by calming your nervous system similar to a weighted blanket. Regular nightly practice helps to retrain the parasympathetic state that is often overpowered by our sympathetic stressed state. Response to stress is better with improved parasympathetic tone.  

May support vagal tone, dermatomes, and Chinese meridians. The specific softness and weight of a Castor Oil Pack combined with Castor Oil activates a feedback loop via skin receptors that improve vagal tone. Specific dermatomes and Chinese meridians are stimulated that are thought to support organ function.  

May help your diet, supplements & treatments work BETTER. Castor Oil Packs may improve therapeutic effectiveness of everything you’re already doing to digest and absorb better. Emotions are processed better, and stools are eliminated with ease. Overall feeling better!

FAQs

Can I just drink Castor Oil or rub it on my skin?

If you take Castor Oil orally (sold separately), it’s a stimulant laxative that can cause cramping and make you rush to go to the bathroom.

Simply rubbing Castor Oil on your skin and throwing an old T-shirt overtop (A.K.A. the “Lazy Castor Oil Pack”) only gives you about 50% of the benefits. Without the pack you lose out on supporting liver detox, lymphatic drainage and colon cleansing.

The pack and the Castor Oil work synergistically together to help you feel better.

Why do I have to replace the packs after 2 months of regular use?

Before 1st use, you may want to wash your new Castor Oil Packs as recent research from the National Institute of Health shows that even organic materials may contain traces of chemicals via transportation, packaging and warehousing. Luckily, washing is shown to significantly reduce or even eliminate these chemicals completely.

It's like when you buy produce, you always wash it first, even if it’s organic! A new pack can be hand washed or machine washed with natural detergent and laid flat to dry. However, once you have started adding oil to your pack, it may be best NOT to wash it. Washing a used pack may lead to oil getting all over the outer "less mess" layer of the packs, making it messier and decreasing its natural lifecycle. Tips to extend the life of your packs:

Only use 1 tbsp of fresh Castor Oil with each use

Keep Castor Oil in the center of your pack (away from the seams)

Avoid washing your oily pack

Can I wear it if I’m pregnant, breastfeeding or on my period?

Pregnancy: Castor Oil Packs should NOT be used during pregnancy, unless advised by your doctor, doula or midwife practitioners.

Postpartum during breastfeeding:You may want to wait until you’ve finished breastfeeding to wear your Castor Oil Liver Pack, however, the Pelvic Castor Oil Pack can be used during this time to support healing and resetting of the pelvic and abdominal organs after having a baby.

Menstruation: Contrary to popular belief, Castor Oil Packs CAN be worn during your period. However, if it’s your FIRST time ever doing a Castor Oil Pack, wait until the end of your period to begin, otherwise you may experience more intense period cramps.

After regular usage there is no issue with doing your pack on your period. Often many practitioners note that your period improves with a regular Castor Oil Pack practice.

Do I have to add heat to it?

Extra heat is not necessary because the Castor Oil Liver Pack is engineered to naturally hold in your body heat.

Will it impact any of my medications, hormone replacement therapy, birth control pills, IUD or supplement

No, Castor Oil Packs are safely combined with any medication and supplement and may help them work better.

They are safe to use while on hormone replacements, TTC medicines or birth control pills and support hormone balance if you are weaning off. They are safe to use with internal IUDs. In very rare cases, a hypersensitivity reaction to Castor Oil may occur, if this should happen please discontinue use.

How can I do Castor Oil Packs for my hormone balance?

For hormone balance it’s best to wear your Castor Oil Pack for Liver for the first 2 weeks of your cycle (from the start of your period to ovulation). Then, for the last 2 weeks of your cycle, switch to the Pelvic Castor Oil Pack until you get your period again.

No menses?
If you don’t have a period, start with your Castor Oil Pack for Liver on the New Moon and switch to the Pelvic Castor Oil Pack on the Full Moon.

Perimenopause or menopause?
Begin with your Castor Oil Pack for Liver on the Full Moon and switch to the Pelvic Castor Oil Pack on the New Moon.

These are easy, gentle hormone-balancing practices used to support a regular monthly hormonal cycle, good for all stages of life from puberty to fertile years to perimenopause and menopause.

What if I’m on medications, hormone replacement therapy, birth control pills, IUD or supplements?

Castor Oil Packs are safely combined with any medication and supplement and may even help them work better. There are no known contraindications or interactions with medication, and are safe to use with hormone replacements, TTC medicines, birth control pills and IUDs.
