A hot castor oil pack is AMAZING for relief of pain, spasming, cramping and intestinal blockage. For full instructions, simply go to my blog and type in "castor oil" to the Search box. OR copy/paste this link: https://blog.listentoyourgut.com/?s=castor+oil

Some of my readers have expressed concern about the effect on the workers of harvesting castor oil, since they have heard that the plant can be toxic in it's unprocessed state.

So I asked the company who makes the castor oil we sell (Heritage Products) about the workers doing the harvest and here’s their response:

“We have used our current supplier for many years and they source fine oils from around the globe. They are used to dealing with international issues, including worker safety. We have questioned them in the past regarding this and they have assured us that they monitor the safety of the workers when they conduct their audits of their suppliers.”

Not very hard or provable, I know. Not sure how you would even go about getting any kind of ‘certified’ safety document or assurance in these countries anyway – as they are largely unregulated.

Still, it is good to raise this concern and let manufacturers know that we are thinking and talking about this issue.

On the positive side, it doesn’t look like the harvest would cause problems, since the ricin has to be ingested, inhaled, or injected to cause toxicity:

The reference Wikipedia gives for its assertion that there are allergenic compounds on the leaves of the plant which harms workers, is also unsubstantiated:

Since castor oil is used in the industrial sector as well as health sector, there is a fairly large production going on. One would think that providing workers with gloves or face masks would be a fairly cheap/easy protective measure, rather than having to continually find more workers, or having lowered production due to sick workers…

Bottles may experience panelling during transit. This is a normal occurrence that happens due to pressure changes in transit and does not affect the quality of the product.
