A castor oil pack is a really gentle way to detox the liver, and that’s important because the liver helps us digest fats, detoxes the blood, regulates hormones and stores energy. The pack gently relaxes the liver allowing it release toxins and rejuvenate. The potential benefits are; more balanced hormone and blood sugar levels, better digestion and improved immune system. Phew! Must be worth it.
Also you might find you are a bit less grumpy, as the liver stores repressed anger. If people recommend it to you it may with their own benefit in mind!
Keith’s tip: It’s not ideal to do this after a heavy meal, allow 45 minutes, or at least 1 hour if you really stuffed yourself
This weekend we had our Yoga, Nutrition & Detox weekend at which was fantastic, even if I say so myself. It was so great to be there this time of year the woodland looked amazing.
One if the main therapies we did was the liver detox castor oil pack.
One of the tutors started off by saying ‘You need to wear old clothes unless you don’t mind getting a bit oily.” She then said to me “Oh, what you are wearing is just fine!”
So how do you do a cast oil pack?
You need a white face flannel, some castor oil, a towel and cling film.
First of all you soak the flannel in some castor oil, and squeeze off the excess. Then place the flannel over your liver area, which is your right hand side over the abdomen and lower part of your ribcage.
Keith’s tip: Don’t drink castor oil or apply to broken skin. The pack should not be used during pregnancy, breastfeeding, or during menstruation
Then wrap it round with cling film, to hold it in place and cover the pack.
Then cover it with a towel, lie down and relax. Place a hot water bottle on top, the towel just spreads the heat out a bit.
Finally cover yourself with a blanket or duvet, and relax for at least half an hour, preferably one or two hours. Once you get used to it you can leave it on all night.
Keith’s tip: It’s great to do a castor oil pack this time of year it prepares your body for winter.

Keith how many of these is it “safe” to do…I loved it so much, I did another one the next evening!
Hi Jackie, you can do them quite regularly a few a month. Generally it’s best to detox the week after full moon, and focus on nourishing and strengthening after new moon.
Keith…all the chemists/supermarkets near me no longer stock castor oil 🙁 (apparently something to do with people buying it to make explosives?! What is the world coming to?) Is castor oil the best thing to use…I may have to buy on-line from the wonderful Dimensions, assuming they’re still stocking it?!
Keep blogging…it’s a great read!
