CASTOR OIL PACKS
These packs are a wonderful way to help when constipated.
Give yourself an hour.
I usually suggest running warm water over a flannel and wringing it out. Then add a good drop of castor oil to the damp flannel.
Place this over the abdomen, cover in cling film then place a hot water bottle over the area.
Lie there for and hour. You can read, listen to music, a great way to pass the time is listen to a meditation.
This method can be used to soften any hard masses, it works wonderfully on swollen painful joints too.
