How does this castor oil help decrease pain from PMS and relieve constipation?
Castor oil is absorbed through your skin and relaxes smooth muscles, which contract and cause pain.
This simple mechanical action has a beneficial influence on all hollow organs, specifically the blood and lymph vessels, the uterus, fallopian tubes, bowels, and gall bladder. A castor oil pack is placed on the skin to increase circulation and to promote elimination and healing of the tissues and organs underneath the skin. It is often used to stimulate the liver, relieve pain, increase lymphatic circulation, reduce inflammation, and improve digestion.
What Does Cold-Pressed Mean?
Cold-pressed means the manufacturer did not use excessive heat, chemicals, or solvent to extract the castor oil from castor beans. This is a cheaper and faster method that strips the nutrients and the oil’s purity becomes compromised.
The worst part is that most of the naturally occurring nutrients are lost through this process.
Cold-pressed is a natural process that takes longer. However, it produces 100% pure, food grade quality castor oil.
What the Difference Between Castor Oil and Jamaican Black Castor Oil?
Black castor oil beans are roasted to produce a dark color. The color is actually ash. The beans are ground and boiled to extract the oil.
Yellow castor oil is made by pressing fresh castor beans; there is no heat involved. Thus, the term cold-pressed.
The way a castor bean is processed can result in differences in the ph and consistency of the resulting product. The ash found in JBCO results in a higher pH (alkaline) product that is believed to have more clarifying properties. In fact, alkaline pH levels can help open cuticles.
