4 Powerful Benefits of Using Castor Oil Packs

  • Pain Relief: Renowned for pain-relieving properties, when applied to the skin, they can help alleviate various types of discomfort, including muscle aches, joint pain, and menstrual cramps.
  • Detoxification: Believed to stimulate the lymphatic system and aid in the removal of toxins from the body.
  • Digestive Health: Use on the abdomen, the pack is known to support the digestive function, and alleviate symptoms of IBS, bloating & constipation.
  • Skin Benefits: Used regularly, the emollient properties of castor oil can hydrate and nourish the skin, leading to a softer, more youthful complexion.

How to use a Castor Oil Pack:

What you Need:

  • High-quality, cold-pressed organic castor oil
  • Purchase a readymade castor oil pack from Glo Health, or you can try to make your own!

• DIY Pack
A piece of flannel or an old cloth (large enough to cover the affected area)
An old towel or sheet
A hot water bottle or heating pad

  • Wash your pack or cloth.
  • If using a cloth/flannel, fold the cloth into a few layers to make it thick enough to hold the oil without dripping.
  • Soak the cloth or pack in castor oil until it’s saturated but not dripping. Use approx. 2 tablespoons, work this into the cloth, then add a little more until the cloth is saturated. Ensure you keep the oil away from the seams and edges of the pack or cloth.


  • Lie down in a comfortable position, preferably on a towel to protect your bedding or furniture.
  • Place the soaked cloth on the affected area (e.g., abdomen, lower back).
  • Cover the pack with an old towel, plastic wrap, or a plastic bag to prevent staining.

Apply Heat:

  • Use a hot water bottle or heating pad over the pack.
  • Leave the pack on for 30-60 minutes.


  • Store the cloth in a sealed glass container in the fridge for future use. You can reuse it multiple times for up to 3 months.
  • Please note if keeping it in the fridge take it out of the fridge and wait until it reaches room temperature.

Incorporating castor oil packs into your wellness routine can be a natural and cost-effective way to address various health concerns.

Castor oil packs can be a valuable addition to your holistic health regimen with proper use.

Always consult a healthcare professional before starting any new treatment, especially if you have underlying medical conditions.
