Wish List: Castor Oil

I have been wanting to implement more oils into my hair regimen and my skin regimen. Currently, my main oil is EVOO0--which is great. However, another great oil that has many benefits is Castor oil.

I used my sister's 50:50 mixture of Castor Oil and EVOO on my hair for my oil rinse and my hair loved it. For this reason, I want to use this particular oil for my oil rinses. Also, I want to use this oil for an oil cleansing for my face.

Here are some of the benefits of Castor Oil:
1. Castor Oil keeps the skin looking unlined and youthful because it penetrates more deeply.
2. Castor Oil thickens eyelashes and eyebrows. Therefore, it should thicken hair once applied.
3. Castor oil keeps hair looking soft and shiny

There are numerous benefits to Castor Oil but, I just named a few interesting ones. It is for these reasons that I need a VAST amount of castor oil in my possession. Most castor oil packages sold in the stores are very small. I am on the hunt for a large amount.


  1. love castor oil, u can get them from amazon or whole foods

  2. Thank you so much, Tinuke. The closest Whole Foods for us is 3 hrs away. But, I will check out amazon and this natural food store in my area.
