Castor oil has a lot of health benefits, but it still has that old school stereotype attached to it. Like it’s something your grandmother used to use. Well castor oil is making a big comeback as people are beginning to revisit many of the benefits that it has.
While it is a rich source of proteins, minerals, and vitamin E, it also has very strong antifungal and antibacterial properties that can help with a lot of various ailments. It also has high amounts of omega-9 fatty acids which assist in nourishing hair and follicles, and even helping to grow out your eyelashes, eyebrows and your head of hair!
It rejuvenates effectively due to its triglyceride rich unsaturated fats. The ricinoleic acid which castor oil also has can help treat and prevent the following: fungi, microbes, infections, and mildew!
The anti-inflammatory properties are strong as well. This can assist with digestion as well as prevent intestine inflammation.
