Need Castor Oil Recipes
I made my butter and have a lot of castor oil left over. Wondering what are some good castor oil based recipes. Ideally, I want a spritz/spray, or a creme/butter that I can use when taking down protective styles.

The guy at the health food store told me castor oil is great for dry skin. Ke said jamaican black is best but I heard it smells.

Mix it with jojoba or sweet almond oil and use it on your scalp overnight once or twice a week.
My hair grew one inch in one month because of that. I also use pure CO on my lashes. And I can see the diff.

Some say massaging it on your scalp can help hair growth. Could you CO wash castor oil out?

Castor oil

+ Conditioner = Deep conditioner, more moisturizing

+ Coconut oil - strengthens hair, penetrates hair, protein-like

+ Olive oil - helps hair growth, softens hair, penetrates hair

+ wet hair - seal moisture in, keeps moisture in but keeps more from coming in, so apply it after moisture treatments

+ scalp massage = encourages hair growth, thickens thinning hair, softens

+ eyebrows - fills eyebrows in

+ eyelashes - stronger, moisturized lashes = longer, thicker lashes

+ drink = laxative, cleans you out

+ skin = moisturizes skin.. Lip balm?

I use it everyday to wash my face (oil cleansing method). I mix it with apricot oil or grapeseed oil and I just started adding honey too, my face feels like satin :)

Oh, me too. But I use a castor oil and sunflower oil mix. I heard some of the oils eventually clog their pores and break people out, even the original mix which is olive oil. I think that it depends on the comedogenicity (is that a word?) rating.

You can check the list at

Olive oil is 2 - medium
Coconut oil - 4
Jojaba is 0-2 - good
Castor oil is 1 - good
Sunflower oil is 0 - very good
Check the list for more.

On the eyelash growth I did read that some where about it. And I've been applying that with vitamin e to my eyes. I swear the lashes on the bottom are fuller and they do look longer although I've had long eyelashes always before using the oil. But u can use castor oil for various things. It's really good for sealing in moisture. I've been using it in conjunction with a water based styler and oil based cream. Hair is soft and shiny and twists are defined.

Perfect if you use a mix of castor oil and beautiful textures shine and silken growth oil. It lightens castor oil very well , and has LOTS of good vitamins and oils mixed in it. It's been 3 weeks and I think it's making my hair grow

oil looks like this
