100 % certified organic castor seed (Ricinus communis) oil.

Nature’s Shield unrefined castor oil is certified organic and sustainable and is cold-press extracted, for preservation of its naturally derived qualities. Free from hexane.

Castor Oil has been used since Egyptian times as a folk remedy for a wide variety of ailments.

Nature’s Shield cold pressed castor seeds yield superior quality oil which is excellent for massage.

  • Soothes dry skin - It can be applied on skin, hair, nails and joints. A very light coat on your eyebrows and hair acts as a glossy serum.
  • Massage - Castor Oil is also one of the few carrier oils that can be used as an emulsifying agent. In cosmetics applications, Castor Oil can be used in creams & lotions, body butters, soaps and massage products. Try a skin patch test prior to apply.
  • Compress - Dip a face cloth in 100mls of castor oil and place over the affected area. Try the abdomen for constipation, uterus for period pain or fibroids, ovaries for cysts and joints for pain. Cover with glad wrap and place a hot water bottle then a towel over the area to increase absorption. Leave on for 30 minutes then rinse off. Repeat for four consecutive days for optimal effect.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.

Note: Any good quality unrefined, cold pressed raw castor oil does have a thick nutty / earthy smell which may vary as it is a natural product. You will feel that especially when opening the bottle and will be really mild once applied on the skin. If this is still an issue try adding few drops of essential oils like rosemary or peppermint before applying on the skin.

I personally love castor oil for use with a compress. It is AMAZING, and time tested and simply one of those remedies that is essential for any household. What I love about the Nature's Shield brand of castor oil is the purity and integrity of the oil. Love Love Love it!
