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, Castor oil consists of a poisonous toxin called ricin and hence the cold pressed extraction is not ideal for castor 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 is 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
- YSA Market caster Oil is a natural Laxative. Ricinoleic acid is the main fatty acid in this oil, which when absorbed by the intestine stimulates a strong laxative effect thereby cleansing the bowels.
- The Ricinoleic acid in caster oil prevents moisture loss from the skin thereby deeply hydrating the skin. Devoid of the perfumes and artificial chemicals in store bought moisturisers, Castor oil is a natural moisturiser without any harmful effects to the skin. It also assists in reduction of Acne in teenagers and young adults.
- When applied to wounds castor oil 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.
- YSA Market castor oil also has pain relieving and inflammation reducing properties. Hence patients of Psoriasis or Arthritis are deeply benefited by the use of this oil.
- Applying castor oil to hair and scalp acts as a natural conditioner for the hair causing a reduction in hair loss and preventing dandruff related issues.
- This traditionally pressed castor oil is absorbed into the lymphatic system and boosts immunity by increasing lymphocytes.
Castor Oil Cleansing
What you need?
- For 3-6 year old children: 20 ml castor oil, equal amount of orange juice.
- For 6-12 year old children: 30 ml castor oil, equal amount of orange juice.
- For 12 years and above: 50-75 ml (2 ounces) castor oil, equal amount of orange juice.
Method for Cleansing
- Mix the Orange juice and castor oil in a cup and consume the mixture in an empty stomach around 6-7 am in the morning. You can also drink the castor oil first and juice later or completely omit the Orange juice since it is only used to add a little flavour.
- Post 15-30 mins start sipping hot water like you would sip tea. In intervals of 10-15 mins consume about 3-4 cups of hot water. Ginger flavoured hot water can also be consumed instead of plain hot water.
- After taking hot water you will begin to feel flush bowel movements. Post 6-8 flushes, stop drinking hot water. To prevent oil from staying back in your intestine and causing irritation, drink hot water for a good flush.
- The bowel movements can be stopped by drinking a glass of buttermilk or fat free yoghurt, preferably made at home. Eat light for the rest of the day and avoid oily, fried or spicy food.
- Pregnant women should avoid doing this cleanse as castor oil can induce labor.
- Do not do this cleanse if you are having fever or symptoms of diarrhoea.
- People with liver problems or poor liver functions should cleanse only after a few weeks of toning the liver.
The cleanse can be done once in two weeks for three months and then once a month or once in two months.
