As a child, I remember my granny recommending castor oil for just about any ailment. For her, it was the go-to home remedy for a host of problems. Castor oil happens to be one of the most widely used ingredients, owing to the fact that it has plenty of benefits for your skin, hair, and health. The castor oil benefits are not just limited for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, it is traditionally been used topically for skin and hair benefits too.
Castor oil is extracted by pressing the seeds of the castor plant and is increasingly becoming an important bio-based raw material in various cosmetics, soaps, textiles, massage oils, and even medicines.
