Castor oil packs helps nourish and cleanse the liver

Castor Oil Pack

To make a homemade Castor Oil Pack:

Take unbleached 100% cotton or a piece of white flannel material (I use sterile gauze squares) and soak in castor oil.

Put it directly over the o liver (as shown on the right) Then you cover with Wax paper and tape it on.
  • Take an unbleached 100% cotton or a white flannel piece of material or sterile gauze and soak in castor oil.
  • Put it directly over the organ or tissue you would like to nourish:  usually, the liver, eye, lungs or scarring, adhesions, neuropathy, etc
  • Then, you cover the area with wax paper and tape it on (do NOT use plastic wrap)


  • Use wax paper instead of plastic wrap because the formaldehyde, in the plastic wrap, can break down and be absorbed by the body
  • Some people then put on a hot water bottle (due to EMF's, I do not condone using electric heating pads)
  • The body can absorb castor oil through the skin just as it does for nicotine, heart and estrogen replacement
  • Usually, people keep the pack on for an hour to all night long
  • Since the castor oil is believed to also pull out toxins, it is best not to reuse the cloth unless you wash thoroughly. The site where the pack was should also be washed
  • The frequency of the packs vary from once a week to nightly
