HAITIAN BLACK CASTOR OIL
 
(7 reviews)  

Grown and processed from the castor bean in Haiti, our pure organic/unrefined Haitian black castor oil (l'huile mascreti/lwil maskreti/l'huile palma christi) is a light emollient applied externally to soothe dry skin. It is also ideal for hair treatments as it softens and nourishes.
Haitian black castor oil can be applied to help relieve ear problems, stimulate hair growth and used on baggy eyes/dark circles.

Traditionally hand-pressed without the use of chemicals, our organic/unrefined Haitian black castor oil has a very faint smoky scent and is fantastic as a hot oil treatment.

Due to the nature of this wonderful oil, batches tend to differ from time to time and the oil may solidify under cooler temperature
Haitian black castor oil is traditionally used to :
  • thicken hair
  • encourage hair growth
  • nourish hair
  • soften the skin
  • encourage nail growth



Our purchase of this pure ancient oil helps to provide jobs for ~ 70 farmers in Haiti with the view of creating more jobs.

What makes castor oil so unique?
Well, it is the only plant oil with a fatty acid content consisting of ricinoleic acid with a long carbon chain with no unsaturated fatty acid which gives the oil a long shelf life.
"Ricinoleic acid is effective in preventing the growth of numerous species of viruses, bacteria, yeasts, and moulds. It's successful as a topical treatment for ringworm, keratosis, skin inflammation, abrasions, fungal-infected finger- and toenails, acne, and chronic pruritus (itching). Generally, for these conditions the affected area is wrapped each night in a castor oil-soaked cloth."
The unique properties of castor oil makes it ideal in helping treat eczema although it has to be said that a rich diet of flaxseed (linseed) also helps.
Haitian black castor oil is great in promoting healthy hair. It can be applied with an old toothbrush on your hair line to help combat thin edges and also help thicken eyebrows/eyelashes. A great oil to seal in moisture when applied to the hair.
