The Secret Benefits of Castor Oil

Hey, my friends! I’m Hayley Hobson and I’m so glad you’re here! Welcome to the 10/10 Podcast where I help ambitious women like you, look + feel younger, so you can achieve a 10/10 lifestyle (and unlock financial freedom).

So today I’m gonna be telling you about my latest wellness obsession…

Castor oil! 

And if you’re like “umm yaaaa… isn't that like an age-old remedy?”

You’re totally right. 

But there’s also been a lot of new research coming out about this crazy versatile and powerful oil!

And I recently made a new BFF who’s a total expert on the subject. 

She goes by “Queen of the Thrones' ', but she’s really the qweeeeen of castor oil. 

And not only has she been upleveling my education about castor oil…

I’ve also had the opportunity to try out her castor oil + castor oil packs. 
Which are some of the BEST available on the market. 

OH - And she also sent me a 10% OFF discount code to share with ya…

Okay so, you may already know that castor oil hydrates and nourishes you skin and has many anti-aging properties. 

And you’re totally right: castor oil is ahhmazing for your skin! 

It has Ricinoleic Acid which has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that are soothing for sensitive and acne-prone skin.

It also has Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect you skin from free radicals, potentially helping the appearance of scars and blemishes.

Additionally, castor oil is rich in Omega Fatty Acids and Polyphenols.

Omega 6 and 9 help maintain your skin's moisture barrier, while also keeping it hydrated.

And polyphenols are known for their antioxidant properties and their ability to balance inflammation, helping to support clear, radiant skin.

Soo yaaa, castor oil treats your skin super well. LOL. 

Orrrr, maybe you’ve tried it for hair and eyelash growth…

That’s what I’ve done in the past. 

It can promote hair growth, strengthen your strands, and even address common scalp issues!

Did you know the Queen of the Thrones site I mentioned earlier actually sells eye masks and hair masks? 

So you can wear + absorb castor oil while you're sleeping to promote hair growth?

And for a gal that loves extensions like me, both hair + eyelash, castor oil has helped me grow and embrace my natural locks. 

But, I’m wondering… did you know that it can also support with: 

  • Digestion
  • Sleep quality
  • Bloating & constipation
  • Inflammation
  • Hormone balance
  • And even, stress & anxiety?
Seriously! It’s kinda a super-hero product. 

Let’s talk digestion first. 

If you know me, you know I’ve had all kinds of digestive issues. 

My guts are literally all scrambled up inside me. 

So I have tons of habits and hacks to help my digestive system work properly. From intermittent fasting, to a vegan diet, to regular coffee enemas and colonics… I do it ALL! 

And now I’ve added castor oil to my routine. 

By simply making a castor oil pack for my belly before I go to bed.  

More on that in a sec…

See, castor oil has renowned purgative properties. 

Not only is it a natural laxative, promoting gentle detoxification, and aiding with bloating and constipation…

It also helps your digestive system + liver detox when applied topically around your belly. 

So I kid the not, I wake up without all the bloat I often had from the night before.

And … ready to poop. 

TMI? Probably not.  I know everyone loves a good poop.

What I do is drip the castor oil all over the belly wrap.  

No more buying pieces of flannel that slip all over your clothing or your sheets during the night.

Queen of the Thrones actually sells castor oil “packs” which are cotton/flannel wraps that go around your abdomen. 

So I apply the castor oil on the pack and then secure the pack across my belly with the strings attached. 

She recommends wearing it overnight. 

So I have been.  Because I listen and apply what I’ve learned when someone else shares something that has proven to work.  LOL.

Also, bonus - when you wear a castor oil pack, the gentle pressure is thought to activate the Vagus nerve, triggering oxytocin—the hormone associated with love and connection. 

Again, without that piece of flannel slipping off your body and without the castor oil getting all over your sheets.  Yuck, right.

But that’s what it was like in the good ole days. 

Such a simple concept making that pack. 

WHY did I not think of that? LOL!

But seriously, not only will you have more restful sleep, you’ll also be aiding overnight digestion, and helping to detox your liver. 

And with your everyday exposure to environmental pollutants, processed foods, and stress… this nightly practice can help rid your bod of the buildup of harmful substances. 

This, in turn, is thought to help lower cortisol, the stress hormone, supporting a shift into the parasympathetic 'rest, digest & detox' state for a deeper, more restful sleep.

AKA your mood will totes be 10/10 the next day! 

So I know you’re sold on these benefits but I gotta warn you…

Pleeeeaseee don’t run to your nearest grocery store and pick up the first castor oil you find. 

And def don’t buy your castor oil in a plastic bottle. That’s the mistake I made when I didn't know better. 

Remember, you want high-quality castor oil.  

It makes a difference.

Buying high-quality castor oil is the only way to ensure that you will see these amazing benefits. 

And P.S. It's not expensive!

So here’s what ya need to look for: 

One - Make sure it’s Certified Organic - avoid pesticides, herbicides and GMOs.

Two - Look for “Extra virgin”. This isn’t just for your olive oil… lol. 

When you see the word “extra virgin” it means the oil is the golden standard: the first press of oil. 

Three - make sure it’s processed without solvents like hexane which is a known nervous system and hormone disruptor. 

Four - The castor oil needs to be 100% pure - no additives, preservatives or anything other than straight up castor oil… kinda a “duh” but ya gotta double check! 

And finally, as I mentioned earlier, the best quality castor oil is bottled in amber glass to preserve the quality and nutrient profile of the oil. 

Just like your essential oils. Right, friends?

Avoid toxic chemicals found in plastic containers such as UV filters, slip agents, and BPA! 

Personally, I’d highly recommend buying straight from the source… Queen of the Thrones. 

And with code HAYLEY, that’s H-A-Y-L-E-Y, you get 10% OFF any order of $59 or more!
