Discover Castor Oil
Castor oil’s buzz as a beauty treatment dates back to the days of Cleopatra, when hair symbolized wealth, status and beauty (some things never change), and the oil’s nourishing and strengthening properties earned it a top spot on every ancient Egyptian’s wish list. Derived from the seed of the castor plant, this oil is loaded with a unique fatty acid known as ricinoleic acid, recognized for its emollient benefits and health-promoting properties around the world and across the ages. Today, castor oil is the secret ingredient in many cosmetics, soaps and do-it-yourself remedies—and the darling of beauty editors far and wide—for good reason.
Ultimate Skin Food - Castor oil is a rich emollient which softens and soothes the skin, serving as the ideal total body moisturizer. Providing a source of ricinoleic acid, our oil can be applied as a facial and body oil for long lasting nourishment.
Hair Rejuvenator - Everyday hair masks can be costly and full of synthetic ingredients. Our castor oil is an inexpensive, natural alternative that is suitable for all hair types.
Stronger, Healthier Nails - As a natural treatment for nails and cuticles, castor oil's health promoting properties and soft texture help soothe and heal brittleness. Apply a small amount before bedtime and massage generously.
Eyelash & Eyebrow Care - Stimulate hair growth by applying a small amount of castor oil to eyebrows and eyelashes. A pain-free, natural alternative for an everyday glam feel.
Quality Guaranteed - Tested for quality and safety with every batch, our oil is hexane free and manufactured in the USA!

Ways to Enjoy
Apply castor oil at night to keep skin hydrated while you sleep. For dry and rough patches, our oil contains naturally occurring vitamin E to protect and soothe skin. To whip up a batch of decadent vanilla body balm or lotion, melt together a quarter-cup of castor oil, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, 1 oz. of grated beeswax and 2 teaspoons of shea butter in a glass double boiler over medium heat. Remove from heat, stir in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and cool to room temperature. For a creamier consistency, beat for a minute with a hand mixer.
As the most important base for any oil cleansing method recipe, our castor oil can be mixed with other facial and aromatherapy oils for a do-it-yourself home remedy. Try mixing one part castor oil and one part grapeseed oil with a few drops of tea tree and lemongrass oils.
Apply to your scalp and split ends as a nourishing hair mask. Add your favorite essential oils for their soothing and aromatic properties. Or, for a DIY conditioner, mix 2 teaspoons of castor oil with an egg white and a teaspoon of glycerin, and massage into your wet hair. Wait a few minutes, then rinse with warm water. Add new life to your eyebrows by dabbing a drop of castor oil each morning and evening.
Add some oomph to your lashes by applying castor oil every night before bed. Apply from the base to the tips, making sure every strand is saturated (but try to keep the oil out of your eyes to avoid irritation). For easy application, put some oil in an old (but clean) mascara tube. And, to make your own mascara, add 2 tablespoons of castor oil to one tablespoon of melted beeswax, then mix in charcoal powder or cocoa powder to get the color and consistency you want.
