Using castor oil on breasts has been an ancient practice, but it wasn’t until recently that experts began researching why it helps improve the health of breasts.
There are multiple benefits to using castor oil packs on your breasts. One of which is increasing the lymphatic flow. Lymphatic flow is crucial for breast health, and when used in combination with gentle self breast massage or a massage roller, the results are enhanced.
A gentle breast massage around your breasts naturally increases blood supply to your muscles. It also assists in removing toxins throughout your body.
Another reason castor oil is so important for breast health is that it helps control inflammation. A strong immune system is key to health and may assist in cancer prevention. One study showed that castor oil packs increase a type of protective white blood cells known as T-11 lymphocytes.
Castor oil packs have been shown to reduce substance P, a neurotransmitter involved in pain response, by controlling inflammation. The less of it you have, the less you’ll be in pain. This is one of the reasons why it’s used where pain is high.
Finally, another way that castor oil benefits the breast is by rebalancing hormones. A properly balanced endocrine system keeps skin glowing, the mind and body sharp, and gives you more energy. The result is less stress hormones and more feel-good ones!
Clean before first use on a gentle wash.
1) Prepare your space thoughtfully so you can relax.
2) Wear old clothes and place a towel down in case of any leakage.
3) On first use spread 2 tablesoons of castor oil from the centre out .
4) After First use, add 1 tablespoon to each breast pack on each use. Wash the pack after 2 weeks of use (gentle machine wash) then repeat steps 3 & 4
5) Place the castor oil pack where you would like:
Body Pack - Most commonly the entire mid-section from clavicle to pelvic bone, ribcage to pelvic bone, directly over liver and gallbladder or around the stomach area.
Neck Pack- directly over the thyroid for autoimmune conditions or nodules.
Breast Pack- directly on the breast area (Use old bra/t-shirt to avoid staining)
6) Relax for preferably an hour with your legs elevated comfortably.
If using a Castor Oil Body or Neck Pack that ties around you, you can go about your day or sleep in it for best results.
7) When time is up, gently remove the pack then rub in the excess castor oil into the skin. You can also wipe the excess castor oil off with warm water if needed.
*Use it every 2 days, topping up the wrap with 3 to 4 tablespoons of castor oil.
You can continue to use and top up the wrap for 2 weeks before it needs to be washed.
Wash on a 'delicate wash' , using a gentle detergent and adding some white vinegar to the fabric softener dispenser. This cleans the pack well, no need for extra heat or detergent.
How often can you use a castor oil pack?
Once you have experienced the benefits, it is nice to use them once a week to a couple times a month for maintenance. You can always return to them more frequently if issues arise again (ex. digestive distress – bloating/constipation, painful periods, or just experiencing inflammation or water retention).
The great thing is that you can do what feels good for you. There are no specific rules to Castor Oil Packs. If you do start to feel any stomach upset, which is unlikely, you can skip a day or two between them and still see results.
Remember that you can reuse the pack several times (up to 6 months), each time adding more oil as needed to keep the pack saturated.
