St Francis Castor Oil 250 Ml :
Used in traditional herbal medicine to help remove common warts and for skin itching.
Extracted from the bean of the Castor plant, Castor Oil has been used medicinally for thousands of years. These days the therapeutic use of castor oil is mainly external, and it accomplishes its healing role by its ready absorption through the skin, including the scalp.

Side information on the Castor Oil Pack:
The function of the packs is to improve blood flow (works like acupuncture). Applied to the lower abdomen, at least three times per week for sixty minutes each time to improve blood flow. This regimen should be followed for at least three months and then can be tapered to once a week. Packs should not be used while you are bleeding heavily. They are made by saturating wool or cotton flannel, folded four-ply, with cold-pressed castor oil (cloth should not be dripping).
The oil-saturated flannel is then placed directly on the skin of the lower abdomen and covered with a piece of plastic, such as a plastic bag. Heat, in the form of a hot water bottle or heating pad , is then applied over the pack. A blanket or towel can be placed over the heat source to keep everything in place.
The patient reclines with this on her lower abdomen for sixty minutes. Preliminary studies on castor oil packs done at the George Washington School of Medicine indicate that they improve immune system functioning. The flannel can be stored in a plastic bag in the refrigerator and used over again. Add extra castor oil as needed.
