What's Included & How Does It Work?

1. Castor Oil Liver Pack Kit with Organic Castor Oil 16.9 oz (500ml):
Worn at night to reduce inflammation and move the body into the ‘rest & digest' state, castor oil packs support oxytocin production which downregulates cortisol, helping you get a deep, peaceful sleep.
It encourages circulation to your liver via nitric oxide, enhancing cleansing at the time of day that is best (while you sleep!).
Castor oil also preserves your body’s master detox agent, glutathione, and promotes the release of your feel-good neurotransmitter, dopamine.

2. Bamboo Dry Brush:
In the morning, dry brushing supports lymphatic cleansing and stimulates cortisol to wake you up!
Cortisol naturally rises in the morning to energize you, so encouraging this balance is ideal. Dry brushing can be done with castor oil as it’s packed with skin-loving nutrients like vitamin E, omegas and polyphenols which hydrate and nourish your skin and further support lymphatic flow.

This day and night routine supports the natural rhythm and cleansing of hormones by supporting your ‘love and connection molecule’ oxytocin in the evening (with the castor oil liver pack), and cortisol in the morning (with dry brushing); both hormones that influence healthy estrogen and thyroid balance.

Cortisol is your hormone that naturally rises in the morning to energize you, so a good balance is needed. Naturally enhancing cortisol in the morning and downregulating it in the evening before bed is one of the best ways to support hormonal balance and natural cleansing and detox functions.

How to use your Castor Oil Pack & Dry Brush Detox Kit:

NIGHTTIME: As part of your nightly bedtime routine, apply castor oil to your Castor Oil Liver Pack and tie it onto your body, over your liver. Then crawl into your warm bed and drift off to a peaceful, deep sleep.

DAYTIME: In the morning, use your dry brush and gently roll the brush with soft pressure in a circular motion towards your heart, working through all of your limbs and torso. If you shower in the morning, do it before you get in.

TIP: Dry brushing can be done with castor oil as it’s packed with skin-loving nutrients like vitamin E, omegas and polyphenols which hydrate and nourish your skin and further support lymphatic flow. Simply apply a thin layer castor oil to your skin before dry brushing for enhanced benefits.

How does it work?

Wearing a castor oil pack to bed moves the body into the parasympathetic ‘rest, digest & detox’ state by supporting oxytocin production, which downregulates your stress hormone, cortisol, and helps you get a peaceful, deep sleep. It reduces inflammation and encourages circulation to your liver via nitric oxide, enhancing cleansing at the time of day that is best (while you sleep!).

In the morning, the gentle friction of a dry brush on your skin supports lymphatic cleansing and stimulates cortisol to wake you up!

Cortisol is your hormone that naturally rises in the morning to energize you, so a good balance is needed. Naturally enhancing cortisol in the morning and downregulating it in the evening before bed is one of the best ways to support hormonal balance and natural cleansing and detox functions.

FAQs

If you take castor oil orally, it’s a stimulant laxative that can cause cramping and make you rush to go to the bathroom. 

​​Simply rubbing castor oil on your skin and throwing an old T-shirt overtop (A.K.A. the “Lazy Castor Oil Pack”) only gives you about 50% of the benefits. Without the pack you lose out on supporting liver detox, lymphatic drainage and colon cleansing. The pack and the castor oil work synergistically together to help you feel better.

No, castor oil packs are safely combined with any medication and supplement and may help them work better. They are safe to use while on hormone replacements or birth control pills and support hormone balance if you are weaning off. They are safe to use with internal IUDs. In very rare cases, a hypersensitivity reaction to castor oil may occur, if this should happen please discontinue use. 

Is the mess and fear of staining your fabrics what has stopped you from doing a castor oil pack in the past? Probably, and that’s why this pack was designed by a naturopathic doctor just for you to be LESS-mess. NO, it is not messless, but it’s less messy than a DIY pack. Always wear an old T-shirt over top, just in case. 

Your pack will become messy over time and it’s unknown whether or not toxins are absorbed into the pack so it’s important to replace it after 3 months.

The Castor Oil Pack Kit for Liver Detox is engineered to naturally hold in your own body heat so extra heat is not necessary. You can add extra heat if you want, it’s optional. 

In natural medicine heat is used as a modality to slow things down, so it may be beneficial in cases of cramping or if you find you’re always cold. But in cases of constipation, added heat may make you more constipated. 

Castor oil packs can be used for fertility support and postpartum during breastfeeding, but should NOT be used during pregnancy. Contrary to popular belief, castor oil packs CAN be used during your period, but if it’s your FIRST time ever doing a castor oil pack, wait until the end of your period to begin, otherwise you may experience more intense period cramps. After regular usage there is no issue doing your pack on your period. Often many practitioners note that your period improves with a regular castor oil pack practice.
