Add a couple of drops of Castor to your shampoo for a shine boost. Why not try making your own nourishing hair mask? Combine 30ml of Castor, 10ml of Argan Jojoba and 8 drops of Peppermint Oil for a refreshing, moisturising hair treatment. Massage a few drops into your hair and scalp, leave for at least 30 minutes then wash. Top tip – massage shampoo into your hair before you wet it, as this works as an emulsifier and help rinse out the oil more effectively.
Blend with another carrier oil and use as an all over body moisturiser for silky smooth, hydrated skin. We recommend something light like Sweet Almond or Hemp Seed Oil.
Eyelashes and brows
Keep your brows on fleek by massaging a little Castor on them before you go to bed. Use a mascara brush or a cotton bud to coat your lashes too.
Make your own massage blend by combining with another carrier oil and your favourite essential oils. We recommend Sweet Almond or Coconut Oil For a stimulating and energising blend, try adding Grapefruit , Orange Sweet and Lemon to your blend.
Castor Oil is an excellent treatment for your nails and cuticles. Massage into nail beds to help protect and strengthen.
When added to creams and lotions Castor Oil adds conditioning properties intended to leave the skin soft and smooth.
