Our black castor oil is made using traditional Jamaican methods that have been passed down for years. Hand-processed castor beans are roasted and boiled, and the oil is skimmed off until no water remains. The result is a light to dark brown, nutty-scented oil that is ideal for many uses. It is great for hair, as it is a moisturizing oil with natural reflective qualities that boosts shine. It can be used on eyelashes to encourage growth, as well as nails to encourage growth and protect from bacteria. Black castor oil can also be used to moisturize the skin and reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and acne. Skin conditions such as eczema can be soothed with castor oil, as it creates a protective barrier on the skin to lock in moisture. The relaxing scent of lavender oil makes this a soothing option for massage or nighttime application.
