A soothing and hydrating oil can work wonders. Did you know that ricinus oil is the ideal oil for the job? Read on, if you want to discover how this oil can help you.
Is ricinus oil a miracle in a bottle?
Ricinus oil is extracted from the beans of the ricinus tree, also known as the 'miracle tree'. The tree first originated in Africa, but is now found in tropical regions all around the world. The oil is often referred to as castor oil or miracle oil. And rightly so! Its many different properties mean that it can be used for many different reasons. In particular, ricinus oil contains various unsaturated fats, including ricinoleic acid and linoleic acid. In addition, the oil has a high viscosity (= thickness), which makes it an ideal lubricant for keeping skin supple.
