Castor Oil Pack



  1. Use Castor oil from a bottle or in a roller ball form.
  2. Apply the castor oil directly to your abdominal area.
  3. Cover with an old piece of cloth and cover this with plastic wrap or a plastic bag without lettering, to avoid staining and to keep in the heat.
  4. Lay down in a comfortable position. You may want to place an old towel or plastic under you during the initial applications to avoid oil stains from getting on your bedding, upholstery or carpeting.
  5. Apply a hot water bottle, hot gel pack or heating pad.
  6. Keep warm pack on for 45 to 60 minutes. If using a hot water bottle or hot gel pack, change them to keep the pack warm.
  7. It is fine to fall asleep with the castor oil pack on, as long as you are not using an electrical heating source.
