Why is No One Talking About Castor Oil?

There’s one thing that should be in every household, and it’s a bottle of castor oil.

What is castor oil you ask? Allow me to fill you in.

Castor oil is basically just a vegetable oil, derived from the seeds of the castor oil plant when it is pressed. It most likely got its name by replacing the once widely used castoreum, which was used a lot but came from the glands of a beaver. Castor oil has since made its way to being one of the basic ingredients of common household things like soaps, lubricants, paints, wax, perfume, and many more.

But why is this important to you?

With more and more studied being done every year, research is uncovering many more beneficial reasons to take castor oil as a sort of supplements. The many healthy benefits of using castor oil include helping with skin, hair, and nail health, as well as helping with some cases of insomnia and helping with bags under your eyes from lack of proper rest.

I could honestly go on and on about the benefits of castor oil, and how it’s such a simple quality of life upgrade. But don’t just take my word for it – go out, do your own research, and come to your own conclusion. When you read about all the positives, and about the lack of negative side-effects, you will know the right choice to make.
