Castor Oil Packs

What are they and how do you do use them?!

Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Live Pack for Detox

I can’t remember where I first learned about castor oil packs, but once I started reading into them it was such an easy YES to be a part of my lifestyle. What made it especially easy was The Queen of Thrones Castor Oil Kit. A lot of people have an initial aversion to doing castor oil packs because, traditionally, they can be quite messy, but Queen of the Thrones makes it so simple and mess-less it’s a no brainer if you’re looking for tools to help better your health & detox the body.

So how exactly does it work?

Castor oil works by stimulating the lymphatic system and the function of the liver. The lymphatic system is part of the immune system that helps defend the body against infections, maintain body fluid levels, and remove cellular waste from the body. You can think of it as the trash disposal service of the body.

Castor oil is applied, most commonly, to the abdomen. The oil is then absorbed through the skin into the tissues below. The pack is applied to hold heat and the heat helps drive the castor oil into deeper layers. The oil then increases lymphocyte production in the body which then increases the circulation in the lymphatic system.

Lymphatic congestion is a key factor in inflammation and disease.

If you have an autoimmune disorder or any health issues, getting your lymph moving is a great first step in healing. By supporting the lymphatic system, the body is better able to detoxify by increasing lymphatic drainage, reduce inflammation, help to improve digestion and boost immune function.

Applying the castor oil pack couldn’t be any easier. You can spread it directly on the pack, but I prefer to just apply it directly to my body (on my right side all around my liver area). I’ve incorporated it into my nightly routine. I wash my face, gua sha those little fine lines away, scrape my tongue (with my Tongue Sweeper, duh!), brush my teeth (with my Boka, double duh!), and put my castor oil pack on (which takes not even 2 minutes). I don’t even notice it when I’m sleeping and all you do is take it off in the morning. THAT’S IT! While I choose to wear mine at night so I maximize the amount time I have it on, you can use any time of the day or night!

In my opinion one of THE MOST IMPORTANT factors when looking at castor oil packs is the oil itself. You want to make sure you’re purchasing 100% pure organic, hexane free oil in a GLASS bottle. Oils expel things. If you store your oil in a plastic bottle, it can and will pull toxins from the plastic. The whole point of doing a castor oil pack is REDUCE your toxic load. The last thing you want to do is use oil that pulled toxins from the plastic it’s being stored in.

There are SO. MANY. benefits to castor oils packs, but we will go into more detail in another blog post about some of my favorite ways castor oil packs help support the body.

The body wants to heal itself and castor oil packs are an EASY way to support it.
