Babii Anberlin (550.6 days ago) When aiding in fertility it relieves congestion and inflammation of the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes. It detoxifies the liver improving the metabolism of hormones. It`s also known to calm hyperactive kids. Just put a warm pack on the child`s abdomen 20-30 minutes before a nap or bed. I have had many experiences with castor oil. Having terrible period cramps I always grab my castor oil and a hot water bottle. It usually always does the trick. My mom used to have terrible varicose veins and recently got a majority of them removed but still had burning pain. I told her to get castor oil but she was very stubborn so I bought it for her and told her to just try it. All she did was rub it over the painful area one night when she went to bed and in the morning she woke up and told me that the pain was gone. She only had to reapply it two weeks later. My little sister had a beautiful baby girl last month and one night at like 3 am she was having terrible afterpains to the point of doubling over and crying. The first thing I thought of was castor oil. We applied it and my mom got her a heat pack. It didn`t take long until she went to bed, pain free. It`s also amazing on back pain and can also be used for kidney pain. The pack can stay in place from 45 minutes to two hours, and the skin can then be cleansed with a solution of baking soda and water. The amount used is two teaspoons to a quart of warm water.
