Description Natural Health Begins at Home Cold Pressed and Cold Processed Pure, Natural Emollient Oil Softens and Nourishes the Skin Ideal for Use in Castor Oil Packs Excellent for Massage into Joints and Muscles Hexane Free Paraben-Free Castor Oil is a natural emollient that penetrates the surface layers of the skin, making it softer and more supple. The effects of externally applied Castor Oil can be enhanced through the use of a "castor oil pack" — a piece of wool flannel saturated with the oil and applied to the body. Use of a pack allows the greatest penetration in a specific area of the body. The application of heat further increases this penetration, allowing the oil to better impart its qualities to the body. Instructions for the preparation and application of castor oil packs are supplied with each package of Home Health White Wool Flannel. Home Health creates truly effective personal care products based on traditional, natural ingredients. Our Castor Oil is the finest quality available. It is cold pressed, cold processed and contains no artificial ingredients. You can rely on Home Health to deliver the natural health products your family deserves.
