The traditional Indian method of YSA Market castor oil extraction
- Oils such as sesame oil, coconut oil, or peanut oil have high nutrient value and hot-pressed extraction of these oils may cause destruction of all the healthy nutrients present. However, this particular oil consists of a poisonous toxin called ricin, and hence the cold-pressed extraction is not ideal for oil extraction.
- Traditional Indian Method involves briefly roasting the castor seeds and then pounding them in a mortar.
- Heavy amounts of water or tender coconut water are then added and the mixture is boiled.
- The decanted oil from this process is free of the poisonous toxin “ricin” and highly beneficial for health.
Benefits of using Castor Oil

Devoid of the perfumes and artificial chemicals in store-bought moisturizers, it is a natural moisturizer without any harmful effects to the skin. It also assists in the reduction of acne in teenagers and young adults.
- When applied to wounds, it increases the rate of healing the wounds without drying out the sores. It decreases the risk of infection by forming a natural barrier between the wound and the environment.
