Castor Oil Organic


Available Options


Garden of Wisdom's Castor Oil (Organic) is extremely conditioning, making it great for dry skin. Castor oil soothes inflamed skin, and reduces swelling from damage or irritation. As castor oil is the biggest resource for ricinoleic acid, it has properties that other oils may not have. Ricinoleic acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid with anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. As a humectant, ricinoleic acid pulls moisture from the air and traps it to the skin, helping to hydrate skin.

Properties very emollient, excellent for lip products, conditioning, anti-aging, analgesic, anti-inflammatory

    Awesome For Lash Growth

    I learned that dry lashes get brittle and fall out more easily, so I wanted to start moisturizing mine. I got a chalazion once, which is a pimple-like lesion that can develop on eyelids if your tear glands become blocked. I was a bit worried that castor oil could lead to those chalazions forming but luckily using it nightly has done nothing but wonders for my lashes. they grew longer and they don’t fall out easily anymore. I would recommend against applying the oil close to the inner parts of your eyes (inner lashes) since it could make its way into your eye easier in that area, at least in my experience. other than that I’ve had no issues whatsoever and I’ll definitely keep using this product :)

    Thank you so much for your review! :)

    Subtle and Versitle

    I have been using Castor oil organic for about 4 years now. I add it to my coconut cream for my skin care and I use a drop on my eyelashes once a day. My lashes are a bit thicker, a little longer and they don't fall out as much. It also significantly diminished the dry crustiness around the eye when you first wake up. I do not need to rub my eyes so much in the morning. I also use put a few drops in with Coconut cream and Marula oil for my hair mask that I do once a month. I love it and very much enjoy the many choices of oils for the DIY options.

    Thank you for this review :)
