Home Health's Wool Flannel is 100% White Wool Flannel for use in castor oil packs. Home Health Wool Flannel contains no synthetics, and is reusable with an extra thick weave. Castor oil is a vegetable oil popular for its multiple medicinal uses. The oil is obtained from the castor bean, which is technically a seed and not a member of the bean family. Castor oil is generally a very pale yellow liquid with mild odor or taste.
For preparation and use for Castor Oil Packs, fold the Wool Flannel to a size large enough to cover the body area involved. Pour Castor Oil into the flannel until the flannel is saturated but not dripping. Apply saturated cloth to the desired body area. Cover the saturated flannel with a piece of plastic sheeting (ordinary kitchen plastic wrap works fine). A heating pad may now be applied on top of the plastic. Being with a medium setting on the heating pad, and then proceed to a higher temperature if comfortable for a total of 30 to 60 minutes. The skin may be cleansed afterward using a solution made from 2 teaspoons of baking soda dissolved in a quart of water. Store the flannel pack in a plastic bag or container for future use. Upon subsequent use, you may need to add a small amount of Castor Oil to bring the pack back to saturation. Discard after approximately 20 uses or 2 months.
