Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Fold flannel into 3 layers to fit over entire abdomen. 

  2. Soak flannel with castor oil. Fold flannel in half and strip excess from pack. Unfold.

  3. Lie on your back with your feet elevated (use of a pillow under your knees and feet works well), placing oil-soaked flannel over abdomen, cover with a small sheet of plastic and then an old towel. Place a hot water bottle or heating pad on top.

  4. Leave pack on for 45-60 minutes. Practice relaxation breathing by placing one hand on your diaphragm and the other hand on your lower abdomen. As you breathe in, force your lower abdomen to swell like a balloon. With each breath out, practice relaxing your jaw and shoulders. As you practice more, relax all muscles in your body. You may even fall asleep and wear the pack all night.

  5. To remove the oil, wash with a solution of 2 tablespoons of baking soda to 1-quart water or BioKleen Citrus Soap.

  6. Store the castor pack in the refrigerator in a large zip-lock bag. Add more oil only as needed to keep the pack saturated. Replace the pack after it begins to change color.

  7. For maximum effectiveness, apply the pack as often as possible. At least 4 consecutive days per week for at least 4-6 weeks is optimal. Daily use provides the most beneficial effects.
