Castor oil is a vegetable oil pressed from castor beans.
Castor oil (ricinus communis) comes from the castor seed and is very high in ricinoleic acid, which is responsible for its anti-inflammatory and lymphatic stimulating actions, making it useful in detoxification as well as supporting uterine and ovarian health. Castor oil has been shown to:
- Reduce inflammation
