It is the fatty natural oil extracted from the seed of the Ricinus communis plant, commonly called the castor oil plant. According to medical research, using castor oil on your skin and hair is generally considered safe, but it’s important to be careful with castor oil during your period or while pregnant. Castor oil can also be used for aromatherapy massage, however, you can also use it for foot massage right in your house.
