Castor Oil Heat Compression Packs: 

 

Large waist rectangle for abdomen, digestive area and reproductive area

 

Step 1: Wash before use so pad can absorb oil better

Step 2: Lay pad flat and apply enough oil to cover the centre of the pad and it is saturated but not dripping

Step 3: Wrap pad around body in desired location

Option: Can cover pad around the body with gladwrap to prevent staining

Step 4: Wear for 45 mins to 1 hour or over night. 

Step 5: Add a heat pack into the zip compartment or rest a hot water bottle on the area (Optional)

 

Note: the first couple of weeks you use the pack, you will have to add an additional tablespoon of oil about every 3-4 days.

Eventually, the pack will be saturated enough that reapplication of oil should only be needed every 1-2 weeks. The pack should not be dripping with oil. As an example, it should have just enough oil to make a slight oil mark on furniture as if you were going to polish it.

3. Lay an old towel, or use old sheets, on the surface you will be lying on to prevent STAINING as castor oil stains.

4. Ideally, lie on your back with your feet elevated (use a pillow under your knees and feet), placing flannel over entire abdomen (or chest), cover with another old towel, and place a hot water bottle or heating pad on top. (Note: additional heat is not required during warm weather months.) Leave pack on for 45-60 minutes.

Clean-up: After finishing, if necessary, you can remove the oil with a solution of 2 tablespoons of baking soda to 1 quart water. You can also choose to leave the oil on the skin to be totally absorbed over time, but remember that it STAINS cloth; make sure that there is only a thin film of castor oil on the skin when you finish the treatment.

Storage: If using flannel for the traditional method, fold the flannel and store it in a large zip-lock bag. Reuse the pack many times, adding more oil as needed to keep the pack saturated. Replace the flannel after it begins to change color (usually several months).

Treatment Frequency: For maximum effectiveness, it is necessary to apply the pack as often as possible. Try for at least 4 consecutive days per week for at least 4-6 weeks. Patients who use the pack daily will receive the most beneficial effects. Once the pack has been used and its effectiveness felt, most patients will continue to use the pack on a regular basis for many years. What to do while doing your pack: Practice visualization, meditation, or relaxation breathing, or sleep.

Caution: Do not use if pregnant. Castor Oil can increase bleeding, so for women with heavy periods it is not advised, but if you have light bleeding using a castor oil pack during your bleed is generally fine.
