Castor Oil increases circulation, improves lymphatic flow and increases lymphocyte production and activity.  A castor oil pack over the liver is effective for reducing inflammation and for relief of liver pain. It relieves chronic fluid retention in the liver, and congestion in the gallbladder and liver. Castor oil can be effective in preventing the growth of viruses, bacteria, yeasts and molds.

For a Castor Oil pack use a cotton or wool flannel cloth 18 inches by 40 inches.  Make 5 folds, 8 inches each – keep the 18 inches unfolded. Saturate the cloth with a good quality, cold-pressed Castor oil.   Apply this pack over the liver. Put Clingwrap plastic over the pack to keep the oil from dripping and to secure the pack to your body.

Then for more protection, wrap an old towel around your body.  If you can get a large enough towel to go around your body, you can then use safety pins to keep it around you.   A hot water bottle placed over the pack will increase the effectiveness of the treatment. It can be left in place as long as all night.

Because of the antimicrobial properties of the oil, the same pack can be used over again many times before discarding.

To your greatest success,

Shari
