How to spot imitation

Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs before you buy

They say imitation is the best form of flattery. This might be true, but flattery quickly turns to concern when imitation Castor Oil Packs put your wellbeing at risk.

You may be a wellness queen with years of experience using Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs (and if you are, we’re grateful for your loyalty). Or maybe you’re testing the waters of your new wellness awakening and wondering, “How do I choose a Castor Oil Pack when there’s so many options?

Does this sound like you? If so, read on!

You’ve probably noticed that Amazon and other online retailers seem to have countless varieties of Castor Oil and Castor Oil Packs at varying prices. Each brand claims to be the best for one reason or another, and the number of choices available is dazzling!

If you’re like most people, you’re understandably cost-conscious and simply trying to practice solid self-care without breaking the bank. Makes perfect sense, agreed?

Some of the advertising promises the “perfect” product at a “perfect” price, but here’s where caution is needed. Why? Let’s take a closer look.

Does the “perfect” less mess Castor Oil Pack exist?

Nothing is ever really perfect, is it? I mean, something might seem perfect, but if we’re honest, we begin to see how balance always prevails. Everything has imperfections. Dark always balances light, and so on. But without waxing philosophical, let’s just say that anyone who promises pure perfection is most likely leading you down the garden path.

On the other hand, admitting your weaknesses can help you improve, and that’s exactly what we pride ourselves on here at Queen of the Thrones®.

You might have noticed that we like to be transparent in our advertising. We tell our customers where and how we would like to improve our Castor Oil Packs, and we enjoy being honest by telling you up-front how our packs might not be perfect. They are better than they were, and they’re a lot better than DIY packs, but there is always room for improvement! Agreed?

How we want to improve our packs

If you’re familiar with Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs, then you also know that we’re proud of the less-mess design. But we’re careful to make sure everyone understands that the packs could leak, and that’s why we choose to say ‘less-mess’ and not ‘mess-free’. Honesty really is the best policy. 

The material that makes these packs less-mess is polypropylene that is heat-bonded to a layer of organic cotton flannel. But here’s the thing, while heat bonding is a cleaner alternative to chemical-bonding, and while polypropylene is considered one of the healthiest plastics (it’s what food containers like yogurt cups are made from), it’s still a type of plastic.

We would love to find a way to create an organic, plastic-free outer layer to keep the packs convenient and less messy, but for the moment, the safest and cleanest option is polypropylene. Sure, it ain’t perfect, but it’s the best design we’ve created so far. 

And who knows, we might be on the brink of a whole new design, but in the meantime, we like to be honest with our customers so they know exactly what they’re buying.

We’d also like to find a way to improve on our nylon straps. 

In the beginning, the straps were made of organic cotton, but we received tons of feedback that the cotton straps weren’t stretchy enough and would dig into the skin uncomfortably. Ouch! So we decided to redesign the straps using nylon. 

With these new soft, stretchy straps, the packs are comfortable enough to sleep in, but we’d prefer that they were made of a more natural material. Again, it ain’t perfect, but it’s the best compromise we could make. Still, we are always innovating and improving, so let’s hope that we’ll find that ideal solution sometime in the near future.

So, what’s the problem with imitation Castor Oil Packs?

With the use of Castor Oil and Castor Oil Packs gaining in popularity, there are, unfortunately, some imitation Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs on the market.

This is why we want to educate and empower you on how to spot phonies from the real deal.

Imitation brands made with cheap, synthetic, and chemically treated fabrics are often blended with what sounds like healthy fabrics. The imitation Castor Oil Packs may even have a label that says it’s organic, when it’s not. This is known as greenwashing.

Unfortunately, we can all be fooled into purchasing a less-than-premium product if we don’t know what to look for. See the screenshot below? This was taken from amazon.com of another Castor Oil Pack company that imitates the Queen of the Thrones® design.

Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Packs amazon competitors products

As you can see, their image is almost an exact copy of Queen of the Thrones®, but their pack is manufactured with very different fabrics. Plus, the pack is placed on the wrong side of the body.

Less expensive becomes more expensive

Your help is needed so we can put an end to Queen of the Thrones® imitations. It’s worrisome as a consumer that there are brands out there not telling you the full story about the products you trust.  

Companies may make substitutions for cheaper materials thinking that’s what you want.  Also, lack of knowledge, on their part, could lead to a less-than-promised pack, that may do the very opposite of what they are meant to do. 

But the less expensive alternative ends up being more expensive in the end, especially if your wellness suffers for it. Not good, right? 

We understand that with all great things there will always be a few bad apples in the bunch who try to make a quick buck with poor quality products that don’t have your wellbeing in mind, only their bottom line.

So how do we help you, our trusting and well-meaning consumer, avoid buying something that isn’t Queen of the Thrones® quality? Well, we came up with an idea that might be exactly what you’re looking for.

Why quality materials matter: From Castor Oil Packs to clothing

In our search for a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle, the choices we make in the products we use play a pivotal role. Whether it’s for Castor Oil Packs, or the clothing we wear, opting for high-quality organic materials can significantly impact our well-being and the environment.

When it comes to the wellness practice of Castor Oil Packs, the materials used can make a substantial difference. Choosing organic, chemical-free materials for the pack ensures that your skin, the body’s largest organ, interacts with pure and natural substances, helping to minimize exposure to harmful substances.

Clothing is our second skin, and what it’s made of matters more than we probably realize. Opting for organic materials in clothing, such as cotton, wool, or linen ensures that what touches our skin isn’t adding to our toxic load, one company that embodies these values is qforquinn.com.

Organic materials also allow the skin to breathe, possibly helping to lower the risk of skin irritations, and allergies.

Plus, when you choose organic materials, you’re not just choosing an option that’s beneficial for your wellness, but the environment too!

5 ways to spot a FAKE or IMITATION Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Pack or Castor Oil product

Endocrine disrupting chemicals by Queen of the Thrones

1. Synthetic materials

Many imitation packs are made with synthetic fabrics and materials that contain chemicals.

Beware of “organic bamboo” and other materials like cotton velour that are most often blended with plastic fibers or highly processed with chemicals.

Some may even have regulatory symbols stating that they are “healthy”. But the definition of healthy may be very different for manufacturers compared to natural wellness practitioners.

2. The words eco-friendly”, “green”, and “natural” – do not always mean health-friendly.

Yes, we want to help the environment and be eco-friendly, but not everything that is good for the environment is good for you.

This is a great example of the marketing tactic mentioned earlier called ”greenwashing”.

3. Castor Oil bottled in plastic and not amber glass 

Castor Oil is known as the best carrier oil, but when it’s bottled in plastic, it can leach contaminants from the plastic bottle. This is why we choose to bottle our Castor Oil in amber glass. The amber color protects the oil from light and the glass prevents leaching plastic-chemicals. Basically, if it’s not packaged in glass, it’s not the best quality.

4. Check the Castor Oil label for “hexane-free” and “100% pure”

Castor Oil can be extracted 2 ways: 

  1. Mechanical extraction (pressing)
  2. Solvent extraction (typically with hexane)

With mechanical pressing, the nutrients are maintained instead of being separated from the bean with chemicals (like hexane). Look for bottles that say “hexane-free” and either “cold-pressed” or “expeller pressed”

5. Prices that are too good to be true.

Everyone understands that “you get what you pay for” with quality products, right? If the price is lower than the brands that you know and trust, there’s a reason for it.

6 ways to spot AUTHENTIC Queen of the Thrones® products:

i1. The Label

Every Queen of the Thrones® product has a fabric label with our logo, website, and registration number on it.

2. The Material

Every Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Pack is made with an inner layer of organic cotton flannel (the part that touches the skin directly) and manufactured with the cleanest standards possible.

For hygienic reasons we suggest replacing your compress after approximately 60 uses. 

Note: Bamboo material will feel extremely soft to the touch because it’s been broken down with chemicals that may not wash out completely. In addition, pthalates are often used to make the material softer.

3. The Oil

Castor Oil is a premier carrier oil that absorbs deep into your skin. Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil is always 100% pure, certified organic, hexane-free, extra virgin and third-party tested.

4. The Bottle

Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil is always bottled in amber glass to avoid the potential of chemicals from plastic bottles contaminating the oil.

5. The Face Behind the Brand

All Queen of the Thrones® products are designed by a naturopathic doctor and homotoxicologist with a designation in environmental medicine. She created these packs for her patients, her family, and her personal wellness practice. 

6. Testimonials

Look for the “Verified Buyer” badge on product reviews. Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs have been used for years and have received tens of thousands of reviews from people who love and are loyal to the brand.

So, you’re looking for Castor Oil Packs, but there are countless places to shop online and a seemingly endless variety to choose from. As you scroll and search, you notice that some packs are reasonably priced, while others are super cheap. 

You’re faced with a dilemma: Should you go with the cheaper variety, or should you spend a little more for better quality? Is there a difference between the low price packs and the higher-priced alternatives? And if there is a difference, what is it and why does it matter?

Have you found yourself in this very same situation? How do you know if a site is legit, and where you can make a verified purchase of real Castor Oil products?

As you probably know, Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs have gained an enormous amount of attention for their potential wellness benefits, but with popularity comes imitation, and it’s so important to pay attention to where you’re purchasing these products to ensure their authenticity as well as your safety. 

In this blog, we’ll explore the top four verified locations to buy Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs and why choosing the right source matters.

Top 4 verified places to buy authentic Queen of the thrones castor oil packs

1. Shop the official Queen of the Thrones® website

When it comes to authenticity, the best place to shop Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Products is on the official website itself: shopqueenofthethrones.com. Obvious right? But it’s true. On the verified site, you’ll find the genuine products that are crafted with care and backed by Dr. Marisol ND (inactive) herself.

Why the official website is the best place to shop:

          • Lowest Prices: Buying directly from the official website ensures that you’re getting the best prices available. So if you’re cost-conscious (and who isn’t these days?), you’ll actually get a much better deal by shopping directly. Plus, when you sign up for their newsletter, you’ll get special discounts and opportunities to save, plus self-care recipes and wellness tips on Castor Oil and Castor Oil Packs.
          • Special Promotions/Gifts: In addition to joining the VIP newsletter email list for special prices, the website alone regularly offers special promotions and gifts that you won’t find elsewhere. Plus, you can refer a friend, sharing savings with them and earning extra savings for yourself, too.
          • World-Class Customer Service: If you have any issues, questions, feedback or suggestions, you can count on receiving top-notch customer service from the Queen of the Thrones® Care Team. Truly, the customer service team was hand-picked for their personability and warm, knowledgeable, patient communication style. Reach out to care@queenofthethrones.com to see for yourself.

Why to shop on the Queen of the Thrones official website


We’re also very proud of the
network of thousands of practitioners, health coaches and wellness influencers that are affiliate partners of Queen of the Thrones®. If you discovered these products through their recommendations, be sure to use the links they share on their platform when you make your purchase, so you can support their growth. *Just be sure to double-check the URL to confirm its legitimacy; it should start with “shopqueenofthethrones.com” – but more on this later.

2. Amazon: Shop Castor Oil self-care tools with convenience

If you’re an Amazon Prime member or frequent shopper, the convenience of purchasing Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs on Amazon might be especially appealing. Of course, if you’re a Prime member, you get free shipping, yay! But while both Amazon USA and Amazon Canada are both verified places to buy Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs, a word of caution is necessary here. 

You see, Castor Oil Packs have become so popular that dozens of companies are claiming to sell “high quality” Castor Oil products. Some even imitate the design, branding, and even steal exact photos/videos of Queen of the Thrones® products.

Why does this matter? Well, basically, counterfeit products and cheaply-made Castor Oil Packs can do more harm than good in many cases. 

Here’s why…

Castor Oil: Everything you put on your skin can be absorbed deep, especially Castor Oil, known as the ultimate carrier oil. This is why it’s important to ONLY use Castor Oil for your self-care practices that is: 

  • 100% pure
  • USDA certified organic
  • Hexane-free 
  • Extra virgin 
  • Bottled in amber glass *Castor Oil bottled in plastic has the potential to absorb hormone-disrupting chemicals from the plastic; which you don’t want to absorb through your skin!

Castor Oil Packs: Make sure you only have naturally soft, 100% organic materials touching your skin, like:

  • 100% organic cotton
  • 100% organic wool


    Remember, Castor Oil is a top-notch carrier oil that
    absorbs into your skin, so it has the potential to carry any other substance with it – good or bad. Avoid packs that have an inner layer made of cotton velour (cotton mixed with synthetic fibers), “organic” bamboo (highly processed with chemicals to break it down to a soft material), or other non-organic fabrics.

Queen of the Thrones how to ensure an online store is legit

To ensure the authenticity of your Castor Oil products:

  • Shop directly at the Queen of the Thrones® Amazon store.
  • Verify the Shop Name: Make sure the shop name is Queen of the Thrones®, and look for any misspellings or variations that might indicate a fake account.
  • Check for Verified Purchaser Badge: Authentic reviews from verified purchasers are a good indicator of legitimacy.
  • Reach Out to Queen of the Thrones®: If you’re unsure, don’t hesitate to contact Queen of the Thrones® directly to confirm the authenticity of the Amazon shop.

3. Local health food stores and your trusted wellness practitioners

Shopping at local businesses is always a great choice, and you might find Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs in your neighborhood health food store or wellness practitioner’s office.

Queen of the Thrones® Affiliate Partners on Social Media: How can you tell if a site is legit?

As we mentioned above, you can also find many Queen of the Thrones® affiliate partners on social media. These are practitioners, health coaches and wellness influencers who share content about Castor Oil Packs or Castor Oil uses with a link that you can follow to buy the products they’re discussing.

This is totally legitimate, and it can be counted as a verified purchase because the links these affiliate partners provide will direct you to the official Queen of the Thrones® site. Then these same wellness leaders will earn a percentage of the sales made by anyone using their links, so you can help support their success!

But – be absolutely sure that you vet these wellness practitioners and influencers! One of the latest scams is to steal affiliate videos and posts, and then ask followers to send a DM to get the product. The trouble is, the links they provide go somewhere besides the Queen of the Thrones® site even though they might be talking about our products.

Ways that you can verify these accounts:

  1. Review their profile by scrolling through their feed, checking their follower number, and any posts that they’re tagged in. Fake accounts typically have a low number of posts (or a lot of posts that were posted in a short time frame), very few followers, and very few tagged posts.

     

  2. Check whether the influencer has tagged the official @queenofthethrones account

     

  3. Confirm the link URL they sent – if it doesn’t begin with shopqueenofthethrones.com – it’s probably a fake affiliate.

Tips for ensuring an online store is legit

To safeguard your purchase and your well-being, follow these tips when shopping for Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil and Castor Oil Packs:

  1. Verify the URL: When purchasing through an affiliate partner’s link, always double-check that the website URL starts with “shopqueenofthethrones.com” for the official store
  2. Look for Affiliation & Branding: Review the page for authentic Queen of the Thrones® branding and logos, check for misspellings or other variations that may indicate an imitation webpage
  3. Review Authenticity: On Amazon or other marketplace platforms, look for the “verified purchase”statement and read reviews from actual buyers.
  4. Contact Queen of the Thrones®: If you have any doubts, reach out to the official team at care@queenofthethrones.com to confirm the legitimacy of the shop.

Authenticity and quality are hugely important when it comes to Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil and Castor Oil Packs. 

By choosing trustworthy stores to purchase these products, you’re not only ensuring their quality but also safeguarding your wellness from potentially harmful imitations. 

Whether you shop directly from the official website, opt for the convenience of Amazon, or support local businesses and wellness leaders, remember to stay vigilant and follow these tips so you always get a genuine Queen of the Thrones® experience.

Why Beet Juice is Good for Liver and Gut Wellness

Why Beet Juice is Good for Liver and Gut Wellness

Why Beet Juice is Good for You and Your Gut Health by Queen of the Thrones

Why Beet Juice is Good for Liver and Gut Wellness

Beet Juice is the Perfect Castor Oil Pack Companion

So you love your beets, do you? Perhaps it’s because of their soluble fiber that helps you stay quite regular1? Or maybe it’s because your integrative/functional medicine practitioner or health coach suggested that beets help clean your blood and support liver health and metabolism due to their color2?

Well, whichever way you came across learning more about beets for your overall well-being, we’re glad to have you here!

So, how exactly does beet juice support you? If you’ve ever wondered..

  • Why drink beet juice instead of eating beets on their own?
  • How is beet juice good for my gut health and my microbiome?
  • Why beet juice is the perfect companion to your Castor Oil Pack practice?
  • A special easy beet juice recipe with simple ingredients to maximize all the benefits of beets.

The best part? You probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen cupboard, and you don’t need a fancy juicer or blender.

Easy, right?

So, you might be wondering…

Why drink beet juice instead of eating beets on their own?

First off, all on its own, this hearty, nourishing, dark red root vegetable is an excellent source of essential nutrients like vitamin C among many others. It has been suggested eclectically, according to the doctrine of signatures3, to clean the blood because of its red color. And beet juice has a prebiotic-like effect4 which helps to feed your good gut bacteria, supporting better digestion, absorption and elimination.

Plus, beet juice is also known for nitric oxide, which enhances blood circulation5 and increases oxygen levels in the body. BUT, the best thing about nitric oxide is that it can help break down biofilm6 in your gut.

Good and Bad Bacteria in the stomach by Queen of the Thrones

Why does this matter? Well, think of biofilm like how your mouth and teeth feel before you get a good cleaning at the dentist. You see, biofilm is one of the hardest things to take care of when it comes to your microbiome and gut healing. Especially in chronic diseases like Lyme or autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

Biofilm is the barrier that bad bacteria creates in a sick environment to protect itself, and doesn’t allow any of our nutrients or any of our prebiotics and probiotics to help regulate and balance the microbiome. You see, the nitric oxide in beet juice is a natural biofilm reducer.

Alongside nitric oxide, another healthy component in your new beet juice recipe is glycine, an amino acid that supports liver detox and may help reduce anxiety.8

Your new beet juice recipe for liver cleansing and gut wellness includes a powerful mix of ingredients that are thought to help supercharge all the benefits you get from this superfood (beets!).

So, now you might be asking…  “What about gluten?”

Gluten is a protein commonly found in barley, wheat, and rye.

If you have tried gluten-free cookies, you know they are typically drier and crumble easily.

This is because gluten protein provides the elasticity associated with pasta and baked products.

And these gluten-free products are becoming increasingly popular, as the media has made many believe that this protein is bad for you. Sound familiar?

But before getting on the gluten-free bandwagon, let’s understand whether it’s really all bad.

How is beet juice good for gut & microbiome health?

Dysbiosis symptoms by Queen of the Thrones

This recipe takes the most well-known and sought-after benefits of beet juice…

  • Betaine for support of good stomach acid production9
  • Glycine for liver detox and calming the nervous system so it can heal
  • Nitric oxide which augments oxygenation, circulation and biofilm breakdown

And synergizes them with the exact right ingredients that not only help with liver detox and gut health but may also support mucosal immunity and microbiome balance.

Now that’s beautiful.

Why is this essential? Because, where there is gut inflammation or microbiome imbalance (known as dysbiosis), this can cause hormones to become imbalanced in your whole body.

And when hormones are imbalanced, it can cause/disrupt conditions like leaky gut syndrome10 (the result of an irritated and compromised gut lining), and the progression of disease; not health. Makes sense, right?

So, how do we allow food to be our friend, and not a constant irritant to an inflamed gut lining11? Because as Hippocrates said, “All disease begins in the gut.”

We choose to regularly consume food items like your easy new beet juice recipe.

You can also do easy self-care practices that help you feel good, like the Queen of the Thrones® Original Castor Oil Pack. 

An easy beet juice recipe for overall wellness

Queen of the Thrones beet juice hippocrates
Your new recipe includes 3 key ingredients, in addition to beets…

  1. Apple Cider Vinegar – a well known probiotic ingredient that supports a healthy microbiome12. Used to support acid-base balance for gut health and liver detox13.
  2.  

  3. Cayenne Pepper – a stimulating spice that increases butyrate producing probiotics14. Butyrate is a short chain fatty acid that is a potent gut health regulator and reducer of chronic gut inflammation, improving conditions like leaky gut and dysbiosis15.
  4.  

  5. Extra Virgin Olive Oil – the omegas and polyphenol components in this oil are a key aspect of the beneficial effects of the Mediterranean diet16. It also modulates the microbiome to support the production of short chain fatty acids, key in gut health and mechanisms to revive a Leaky Gut17.
Queen of the Thrones beet juice benefits

The best part? When you combine beet juice intake with a daily Queen of the Thrones®️ Castor Oil Pack, the result is a simple self-care practice you can do from the comfort of home, or on-the-go!

Together, both practices support overall well-being so you can feel more energized, balanced and wake up like new each day because you did something for you!

What is the Difference Between Cold-Pressed vs Expeller-Pressed Castor Oil

Written by: Victoria Williams R.H.N. 

How do you know you’re getting top quality Castor Oil? Is it enough to know that it’s organic? Or how about the extraction method? Have you ever wondered what the terms, cold-pressed or expeller-pressed mean or wondered how the extraction method of your Castor Oil affects its quality, and more importantly, its nutrient integrity? 

Afterall, you use Castor Oil because it’s loaded with nutrients, agreed? So, let’s explore the different extraction methods, how they work, their uses, and how all these factors affect that luscious oil you know and love.

Key Points:

  1. Castor Oil has a high stability level that makes it able to withstand high temperatures.
  2. Castor Oil’s nutrients likely do not begin to break down until the oil is exposed to 302°F (150°C).
  3. Expeller pressing only exposes the oil to 140-210°F (60-99°C).

The variable nature of Castor Oil

When buying large quantities of bulk Castor Oil, suppliers like Queen of the Thrones® must consider the quality of the beans themselves, the extraction, then choose the best quality oil based on the results of third-party testing.

As with any crop, the castor bean is affected by many environmental conditions. Sometimes the crop is abundant with super healthy castor beans, and other times the crop may be scanty. 

Because of this, Castor Oil, whether expeller or cold-pressed, goes through rigorous testing to determine if the product meets nutrient requirements. Here at Queen of the Thrones® we use a third party to test our Castor Oil, and from there we make a decision on whether to buy it.

Does expeller-pressing destroy nutrients? 

It’s important to remember that because Castor Oil is a natural product, its composition may vary from batch to batch. 

Sometimes cold-pressed Castor Oil may test better, while other times, expeller-pressed Castor Oil may be the optimal choice. Every batch of Castor Oil is unique, and the quality must be verified through testing. 

Third-party testing of Queen of the Thrones® expeller-pressed Castor Oil shows that it meets key specifications, including fatty acids/ricinoleic acid profile and saponification within the same strict range of standards as cold-pressed Castor Oil. 

For this reason, we may switch back and forth between cold and expeller pressed from time to time, depending on the quality of oil available on the market.

So whether you use it in an Original Castor Oil Pack , Neck Castor Oil Pack, Pelvic Castor Oil Pack, or Castor Oil Beauty Mask, remember that rigorous testing ensures the safety and quality of the Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil. 

From bean to oil: Castor Oil extraction

The Castor Bean Extraction Process: 

Organic Castor Oil extraction by Queen of the Thrones

Stage 1: Seed Collection

Ripe castor plants are selected for seed collection. The process begins by exposing these plants to the sun’s warmth, causing them to split open naturally, allowing the seeds to be gathered.

Stage 2: Dehulling

The castor seeds are stripped of their outer layers, a process that can be done manually or mechanically with the assistance of a castor bean dehuller.

Stage 3: Cleaning

After dehulling, the seeds undergo a thorough cleaning process to eliminate impurities such as sand, leaves, sticks, stems, and dirt. A seed cleaner equipped with revolving screens or reels is employed for this purpose.

Stage 4: Drying

To reduce moisture content and catalyze the extraction process, cleaned seeds are gently heated in a steam-jacketed vessel. This step hardens the seeds, preparing them for pressing.

Stage 5: Cold or Expeller Pressed

High-pressure crushing of seeds occurs in this stage. The extracted oil is filtered, and the residual bulk is blended with fresh seeds for further pressing, while the resulting residual bulk is referred to as Castor Cake.

Stage 6: Filtration

The oil is filtered through a fine filtration system to remove both small and large impurities.

Stage 7: Packaging

The final stage in processing is packaging the oil into steel or plastic drums (Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil is always in steel) to transport it to a bottling facility.

Stage 8: Bottling 

The Castor Oil is bottled into its final container, either plastic or glass, and ready for the wellness consumer to purchase (Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil will ALWAYS be bottled in glass!).

What is the difference between expeller and cold-pressed Castor Oil?

Expeller-Pressed Oils

The expeller pressing method involves physically pressing castor beans to extract the oils, avoiding the use of chemicals. While this technique employs pressure for oil extraction, the pressure itself can generate temperatures between 140-210°F, so it is not considered a true “cold processed” method.

Expeller pressing is a more efficient method of extraction because the heat that is produced helps extract MORE oil, meaning a higher yield is produced, and less of the plant is wasted. While this heat is higher than in cold pressing, it is still considered relatively low. 

Cold-Pressed Oils

Cold pressing oil, on the other hand, also generates heat, but it does not surpass 122°F during extraction.
In this process, the oil is extracted using methods such as bladder pressing (for softer fruits), hydraulic pressing, or low-resistance expeller pressing to ensure the temperature stays below 122°F. Sometimes cold water may be run through the machine to keep temperatures cooler.

How Castor Oil’s composition protects its nutrients from heat exposure

Castor Oil is rich and viscous. If you’ve used it, you’re familiar with its thick, sticky texture. And while this can make it messy to work with, it also helps protect its nutrients from heat. Castor Oil is considered to have a very high stability level, thanks to the high percentage of ricinoleic acid, which “…does not oxidize easily.” 1
Queen of the Thrones Castor oil cold vs expeller pressed

The oxidative stability of Castor Oil is 230°F1 2, and it doesn’t disintegrate until temperatures above 302°F3. So basically, the nutrients in Castor Oil don’t start to break down until it reaches these high temperatures. 

So, how does this play into the extraction method? 

Expeller pressing can expose the oil to temperatures up to 210°F, while cold pressing exposes the oil to up to 122°F – so neither method comes close to damaging the oil. 

But when it comes to heat and extraction methods, it appears that Castor Oil’s nutrients stay intact. Why? Because the oil must reach 230°F before it begins oxidizing and the nutrients start to break down.

And this is amazing because you can rest easy with the knowledge that the Castor Oil you know and love so much is also providing you with the nutrients you expect it to have!  

Castor oil uses and benefits

supportIf you’re reading this, you probably already know how Castor Oil is used, but just in case you don’t, we’re going to give you a thumbnail of its uses here.

Castor Oil has been used since ancient times as a beauty aid, moisturizer, and most importantly, in Castor Oil Packs.

The Original Castor Oil Pack is the most well known application for Castor Oil because they are thought to have the most support for your wellness when worn over the abdominal area.

A Neck Castor Oil Pack is thought to have similar support when worn over the neck, but is famously known for helping to reduce the appearance of aging and wrinkles on the neck… Sounds wonderful, agreed?

Another common use of Castor Oil Packs is in the Pelvic area. Beloved by women (and men) of all ages, a pack worn in this area is thought to support  energetic flow, while helping to nourish the skin.

Chest Castor Oil Packs are thought to support energetic flow to the chest area, while helping to support the appearance and tightness of the skin.

Lastly, the Castor Oil Beauty Mask is a fan favorite because Castor Oil is well known for supporting the appearance of crow’s feet and dark circles, as well as supporting thick luscious lashes and bold beautiful brows. Not only that, but wearing a Castor Oil Beauty Mask may help support a more restful sleep by helping to block out distractions and disruptors.

You can see why it is such a well-loved oil, agreed?
