How to use castor oil
If you wish to have thicker eyebrows and longer lashes then dab on some castor oil on them every night for one month and you will have longer thicker lashes and brows. Use a light layer to avoid it dripping into your eyes.
If you suffer from dandruff or hair fall then all you need to do is massage your head and scalp with Castor oil. Heat the oil for a few seconds before you massage it. Keep the oil over night and wash off in the morning. You will be able to get rid of dandruff almost instantly.
Castor oil can be used as a conditioner as well. Just massage the oil onto your scalp and wash it off after an hour. The natural conditioning agents in the oil will leave your hair soft and shiny.
The oil can be used as a moisturizer on your skin as well. Massage your body with castor oil and have a bath with hot water. Care must be taken here as the oil is extremely greasy and difficult to wash off. It would be best if you would use a loofah to exfoliate the dead skin cells as well. Using the oil in winter is extremely beneficial as it helps in preventing the skin from drying up and getting white patches.
If you suffer from dry skin on the sloes of your feet or cracked ankles then massage castor oil onto the area and soak them in hot water for as long as possible. The oil will react with the water to soften the skin on your feet and you will reveal feet free of calluses.
