Castor Oil Rocks Your Hair & Skin

<script data-ad-client="ca-pub-3828106578819360" async src=""></script>

The packaging may not be flashy…

But when it comes to nourishing your hair and skin

Castor oil leads…others follow!

You see, natural products are superior to conventional ones, when it comes to hair and skin care.

According to research, one in eight of the 82,000 ingredients used in conventional personal care products are industrial chemicals, including carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins, and hormone disrupters.

And needless to say, these products not only harm the environment, but your own personal health as well.

So, instead of exposing yourself to these synthetic ingredients, turn to Mother Nature

She’s awash with oils and butters that are beneficial to both your skin and hair, especially when applied in their natural form.

Oils like olive, castor, and coconut are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which moisturize, hydrate, and restore your skin, besides being loading anti-aging properties.

And as it turns out, castor oil is one of the least talked-about oils, even though it’s great for both your skin and hair.

It’s rich in vitamin E, minerals, and even useful fatty acids.

Castor oil can enhance the look and feel of your hair, making it look both thicker and richer.

Locking in moisture, this oil is what’s known as a humestant, making each strand of your hair look that much healthier.

After you shower and towel-dry your hair, apply a small amount of slightly warm castor oil, and then work it into the strands of your hair.

Better yet, castor oil is reputed for delivering deep cleansing effect on your skin.

Mix a small amount of castor oil with jojoba oil at 1:1 ratio. Massage the combo gently into your face. After 10 minutes, wash your face with a warm cloth. This steaming process will help remove excess oil, dirt, and other pore clogging material, leaving your face nourished and beautiful.

With castor oil, fungal skin conditions stand a nil chance…

Whether you’re suffering from athlete’s foot or ringworm, the biochemical in castor called undecylenic acid will target and send them where they belong.

Mix castor oil with coconut oil for best results by repeatedly applying the combo to infected areas until you’re cured.

What about obliterating stretch marks?

While there are numerous reasons behind stretch marks, including the effects of puberty and pregnancy, castor oil is very effective in reversing them.

The ricinoleic acid–a fatty acid in castor oil–targets the appearance of stretch marks.

Massage castor oil into the affected areas and wrap with a cotton cloth, allowing the oil to penetrate the skin for 15-20 minutes. Repeat on a regular basis for 3-4 weeks.

Do you have scars and spots from chickenpox or acne?

Don’t worry…

Due to its high fatty acid content, castor oil will penetrate through the epidermal layer, helping to heal the scar tissue by promoting new skin cell growth.

Massage the oil deep into the skin before bed, leaving it to stay overnight for best outcome. Of course, you’ll wash it off the next morning.

Castor oil is also a good acne fighter. The ricinoleic acid helps fight acne-causing bacteria, especially cystic acne, which is generally more severe.

Wash your face before you apply a few drops of castor oil, rubbing it into the affected area. You can leave it on overnight before washing off and rinsing.

And when you use castor oil for massaging, it can help enhance circulation and target sore, achy muscles and joints.

Your scalp is also a great area to massage, helping remove that troublesome dandruff!

And by the way, ricinoleic acid has been found to potentially help balance scalp PH, replenishing natural oils and promoting positive hair health. This can in turn help undo some of the damage caused by harsh hair products.

When the PH of your scalp is either too alkaline or too acidic, it can lead to bacterial or fungal issues, including itching scalp and dandruff.

Truly…castor oil is full of health goodness!

It does a great job in supporting hair growth. When applied to the scalp, this oil penetrates deep into the pores of your hair follicles, providing nourishment.

Work around 3 tablespoons of castor oil into your scalp; leave it on for 20 minutes before washing it off with an all-natural shampoo.

And it doesn’t seem to end the streak yet…

Castor oil will soothe bug bites and stings with its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Simply apply a small amount to the affected area. Repeat until the itchy, irritating feeling disappears.

Castor oil closes this list of goodness with a bang!

Because it deals lines and wrinkles a devastating blow.

The fatty acids found in castor oil penetrate deep into the skin, stimulating the production of elastin and collagen.

It will also target dark bags and the appearance of crow’s feet. And since the skin around the eyes is so delicate and thus prone to damage…

Make sure you cleanse the skin before applying a small amount of castor oil around the edges of your eyes and forehead.

With all these restorative health benefits, don’t you think it’s health-wise to keep a bottle of castor oil handy in your medicine cabinet?

Try it…you won’t be disappointed!

Extra Virgin Olive Oil Gives You Extra…

<script data-ad-client="ca-pub-3828106578819360" async src=""></script>

Little wonder…it’s called extra!

It loads a barrage of unique and extra uses you’ve never imagined thus far…

And as you dive deeper, you’ll wonder how you’ve lived without it!

In fact, many of the uses will stun you to the core…

Because you’d least associate them with this health marvel.

For instance, did you know that you can use olive oil as shoe polish, or even as a quick way to treat diaper rash?

I thought it would do you a great deal of good to know the many uses Olive Oil offers…

And your foremost concern should be the quality because heating or chemically refining it can damage the delicate antioxidants that give it the multiple health benefits.

So, make sure to find cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil.

Another interesting use is removing makeup. You just need to apply a little bit to a makeup remover pad or cotton ball and wipe your makeup right off your face.

Best of all, it also contains incredibly hydrating antioxidants that fight aging, such as vitamin E and polyphenols that are much more effective than the expensive conventional removers that leave your face dry.

You can also use it as massage oil...

Add 1-2 drops of your favorite essential oil, mix it well with olive oil for a boost of moisture as you rub generously over your partner’s back and neck…

And when it’s your turn, you’d love it!

Olive oil contains abundant amounts of healthy fats that can help keep your delicate facial skin moisturized.

Furthermore, EVOO has several anti-inflammatory compounds that are great for acneprone skin, as well as anti-aging antioxidants.

Apply a dime-sized amount of olive oil to your face at night, just before you retire and see what happens to your face…

You’ll run the risk of becoming the envy in your locale…

and your friends will literally beg to know your secret…don’t let them down!

This natural wonder works great as a natural lotion for pets, especially if they have dry, cracked paws due to cold weather or walking on rough terrain or concrete.

Try rubbing a little olive oil onto your dog’s dry spots to help moisturize and soothe their skin.

Olive oil makes a wonderfully simple hair mask. The abundance of healthy monounsaturated fats deeply moisturizes your strands, while its antioxidant content also nourishes your scalp.

To make your hair mask, mildly warm about a quarter cup of olive oil in a small pan, and then apply it to your hair, from the scalp to the ends. Let the oil stay there for 15-20 minutes, and then jump into the shower and shampoo as usual.

And if you think your furniture cannot enjoy a good dose of olive oil…think again!

Add a dash to a cloth or rag, and then polish the surfaces until they glow. Go ahead and smooth it over any area that needs a little touch-up.

And the fantastic oil isn’t just about to tire…

Because it’s an incredible ingredient for DIY exfoliating scrub.

Its high antioxidant content delivers age-fighting compounds while you buff away dead skin, making it the perfect double-whammy for a soft, glowing skin.

Simply mix 3 tablespoons of extra virgin oil with 2 tablespoons of honey, and a half cup of sugar in a glass jar. Use it to scrub your body and face in the shower…and then rinse clean.

And the streak of goodness continues…

Aloe Vera isn’t the only way to treat sunburn!

The polyphenols and anti-inflammatory compounds in olive oil can also help soothe pain and discomfort due to too much time at the pool.

Treat your scorched skin with a dab of olive oil, or take your summertime skin care regimen to the next level and blend a quarter cup of olive oil with a tablespoon of fresh aloe vera gel. This will leave sunburn right in the dust.

What about zesty salad dressing?

It’s a good nutritional habit to add a little healthy fat to your greens. It helps your body absorb the vitamins in the veggies.

Whisk up a quick vinaigrette by mixing 2 tablespoons of olive oil with a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar, 2 teaspoons of honey, and a teaspoon of Difon mustard.

You can even jazz it up with a little sea salt, chopped herbs, and minced garlic, and then sprinkle all over your tantalizing salad!

And talking of moisturizing

Simply add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to your bath, along with a few drops of your favorite essential oil and soak. Your skin will love the moisturizing effects of the healthy fats since hot water can otherwise render your skin dry.

And it gets even better…

Oleocanthal, olive oil’s anti-inflammatory compound, may also help soothe diaper rash by neutralizing irritation on your baby’s skin, while also moisturizing the area to keep it hydrated to prevent further irritation.

Better still…

You don’t need to venture to the store the next time you run out of your chap-stick or lip balm!

Simply apply a small amount of olive oil to your lips and the dryness stands a zero chance, with an added benefit of a nice, glowing shine…

And you’ll step out in style, with your confidence bursting through the roof!

If you’re an artist, olive oil is amazing paint remover. It can help remove those unwanted splatters and it works best with oil-based paints to smooth and dissolve away the paint more thoroughly than water alone.

And if you run out of your shaving cream, don’t begin cursing…

Because olive oil will perfectly fill the void, helping the razor glide on your skin smoothly to prevent nicks and cuts.

More to this, the natural antioxidants in olive oil will help soothe irritations from shaving.

This last one is a real mind-blower!

No shoe polish? Don’t worry….because olive oil is a reliable companion in that endeavor!

And you can even toss your old chemical shoe-shiner and give your dirty kicks top treatment with a little olive oil.

Just like it buffs tired-looking furniture, it can give your tired shoes a nice conditioning treatment.

Simply add a teaspoon to a piece of cotton cloth and buff away.

And…there you’re…eye-popping insights into the extraordinary uses of olive oil you’ve never figured out up to this point!

Press ahead and try them out for optimum utility of EVOO!
