Comment:
One does NOT take castor oil orally - this was done a long time ago, also to try and bring on labour, as this causes severe stomach cramps. Rather take 2 tablespoons of virgin olive oil, it works just as well and is not agressive. Castor oil has wonderful healing characteristics used on the body, but NEVER IN THE BODY !
