Castor oil packs are in use for a very long time for reducing inflammation and increasing circulation at the point of application. One of the major benefits of castor oil is it keeps lymphatic system healthy, which is very important to cleansing the body. Castor oil also promotes healthy function of the kidneys, bowel, intestine, thyroid gland, ovaries and uterus.
When used properly castor oil packs have anti-inflammatory effect that causes fibroids to shrink. When applied castor oil penetrates the skin and relaxes smooth muscle so it penetrates through to the uterus. It is placed on the skin because it helps improve circulation in pelvic region. It also stimulates liver to eliminate toxins, reduces inflammation, relieves pain and improves lymphatic circulation. Good circulation in the pelvic region allows all the nutrients to reach the cells. It also helps all the toxins and inflammatory factors to be eliminated.
A castor oil pack is simply a way to apply castor oil to the skin like you would do with a medicated wrapping. Ideally a piece of wool flannel saturated with castor oil is applied to the area where improved circulation is needed. Besides helping with reducing inflammation and pain, there is considerable evidence of shrinking various types of fibroids, cysts on the ovaries, and even kidney stones.
