In our lifetime, our skin tells a unique story of our journey. Over time, that story can be etched in fine lines and wrinkles, marking the chapters of our experiences. While these signs of wisdom are a testament to a life well-lived, there’s no harm in wanting to preserve our youthful glow for a little longer, agreed?

This is where Castor Oil comes in as a natural elixir with an age-old secret.

In a time of ever-evolving beauty routines, it’s easy to overlook the simplicity of this humble oil. In this blog you’ll discover the wonders of Castor Oil as a trusted companion in your daily beauty routine.

So, if you’re ready to explore a natural path to timeless radiance, keep reading- because the journey begins here!

Castor Oil for eye wrinkles

Let’s begin with the windows to our soul- our eyes.

They say that our eyes reveal our innermost thoughts and emotions, but they also reveal the passage of time in the form of fine lines and crow’s feet. Can you relate?

The delicate skin around our eyes is often the first to show signs of aging. It’s as if our laughter, our tears, and every squint in the sun leave their traces there, right?

But don’t worry; Castor Oil is here to bring you natural support that you can feel good about.

Have you ever wondered why Castor Oil is considered an age-old beauty secret? It’s pretty simple really, this thick, nourishing oil is packed with essential fatty acids like omega-6 and 9, along with vitamin E1 that offer deep hydration, and help bring radiance back into your skin.

Amazing, agreed?

But the magic doesn’t stop there. Castor Oil contains properties that are thought to help protect your skin from damage2   and help support puffiness and tired eyes!

Plus, when you combine your Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil with a Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Beauty Mask, you’re taking your self-care and beauty routine one step further.

Imagine waking up in the morning with eyes that feel refreshed and vibrant. Sounds good, doesn’t it?

Castor Oil for smile lines

Next in our timeless beauty talk is an area that often gets overlooked- our lips. Yes, that radiant smile can also succumb to the signs of aging, but don’t let that keep you from smiling!

If you haven’t noticed already, the skin on our lips is extremely thin and sensitive, making it prone to fine lines and wrinkles, especially as the years go by. But don’t despair; here comes Castor Oil to your aid once again!

Think of Castor Oil as your hydration hero, and when it comes to lip care, it works wonders. Its thick consistency helps to lock in moisture, keeping your lips soft and supple.

Oh, and you know those little lines that can appear around your lips? Often referred to as ‘laugh lines’, these etches of time can be smoothed and supported naturally with, you guessed it- Castor Oil!

Furthermore, Castor Oil is rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins that nourish the skin on and around your lips. 

After all, who doesn’t want lips that feel as vibrant as ever, agreed?

Castor Oil for forehead wrinkles

As we continue our exploration of Castor Oil’s wonderful beauty benefits, let’s now turn our attention to a specific area that often bears the weight of our emotions- the forehead.

Forehead wrinkles, sometimes endearingly referred to as “worry lines”, can add character to our face. They tell a story of our ups and downs… but for some, they can also be a reminder of time passing.

Can you relate?

That’s why Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil is here with its natural goodness to gently smooth out the sands of time.

Did you know that the skin on our forehead is particularly susceptible to wrinkles because it’s constantly in motion? Think about it; we raise our eyebrows, frown, and express ourselves day in and day out. Over time, these repeated movements can lead to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.

This is where Castor Oil shines.

With its thick, hydrating nature, it works as an excellent moisturizer for the skin. And with regular application, you can help bring hydration to the skin on your forehead, like a well-deserved drink of nourishment.

But buyer beware, not all Castor Oil is created equally. Because Castor Oil is a carrier oil, you want to ensure you are using the best quality possible.

Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil is always:

    • Certified organic – avoiding pesticides, herbicides and GMOs
    • Extra virgin – the golden standard, first press of oil 
    • Hexane-free – processed without solvents like hexane which is a known nervous system and hormone disruptor3
    • 100% pure – no additives, preservatives or anything other than straight up Castor Oil
    • Bottled in amber glass – to preserve the quality and nutrient profile of the oil, and avoid toxic chemicals found in plastic containers such as UV filters, slip agents, and BPA4-5-6

Would you love even more ways to use Castor Oil for beauty? 

But that’s not all, Castor Oil is rich in ricinoleic acid7, a fatty acid that may be a game-changer when it comes to maintaining the elasticity of your skin. 

Plus, supporting skin elasticity may help limit the appearance of forehead wrinkles!

Sounds good, agreed? Stay with me to uncover more ways to nurture your skin for timeless beauty.

Castor Oil for neck wrinkles

Aging is a blessing, would you agree? But, it’s not without its moments of reflection. For many of us, one of the most telling signs of time’s passage is the appearance of wrinkles on our neck.

These lines often come hand-in-hand with a mix of emotions, as they signify the chapters of our lives. Can you relate?

Because the skin on our neck is thinner and more delicate, it is especially prone to the effects of aging. When neck wrinkles make their debut it can be bittersweet; a reminder of the joys, challenges, and experiences that have shaped us.

This is where Castor Oil steps in with its gentle, nurturing embrace.

Queen of the Thrones Castor oil for neck wrinkles

Applying this oil to your neck is like giving yourself a warm, compassionate hug. Plus, the thick, moisturizing nature of it helps to hydrate and nourish the delicate skin in that area.

But Castor Oil goes beyond the surface. It’s rich in fatty acids and antioxidants, which work in harmony to protect your skin.

The result? Youthful and revitalized skin!

Looking for more ways to support the skin on your neck? The Queen of the Thrones® Neck Castor Oil Pack may help bring targeted nourishment to the delicate skin in this area.

Talk about a win-win!

It’s important to remember that as we explore the uses of Castor Oil for fine lines and wrinkles, that embracing the signs of aging is also an act of self-love. These lines are not just markers of time, but also etchings of a life well-lived.

At Queen of the Thrones®, we believe that every wrinkle tells a story worth celebrating.

Castor Oil as a facial moisturizer

We’ve journeyed through the landscape of ageless beauty, exploring how Castor Oil can help with fine lines and wrinkles– from eyes to lips, forehead to neck. But now, let’s return to the center stage that is our face- the canvas of our experiences and emotions.

Your face is a reflection of your inner world, would you agree?

This means that keeping it well moisturized is essential for maintaining that youthful, radiant glow we all love. Thankfully, Castor Oil can play a pivotal role as a natural facial moisturizer.8

When it comes to skincare, simplicity is often the key to achieving timeless beauty, agreed? Castor Oil, with its deeply hydrating properties, provides a nourishing foundation for your daily skincare routine.

When you apply Castor Oil to your face, it’s not just about hydration; it’s also about balance.

Castor Oil may help regulate your skin’s natural oil production, making it suitable for all skin types. It’s as if it understands your skin’s unique needs and adapts accordingly!

Pretty amazing, right?

Furthermore, because of its rich composition of fatty acids, it assists in supporting your skin from external stressors. Think of it like a shield that safeguards your face against the wear and tear of daily life!

How to Use Castor Oil for Crow’s Feet, Smile Lines and Wrinkles

Queen of the Thrones Castor oil skin care routine

 

  1. Cleanse your skin: Wash your face with warm water or a gentle cleanser and pat dry with a clean towel.
  2. Application: Take a dime-sized dollop of Castor Oil on your fingertips. Gently dab the oil on the areas with crows feet, smile lines and wrinkles.
  3. Massage: Using your fingertips, gently massage the oil into your skin in circular motions for 1-2 mins. Be gentle around the delicate eye area.
  4. Leave it be!: Let the Castor Oil absorb into your skin. You can either leave it on overnight or just enjoy it as a daily moisturizer for your skin!

*Always consult a dermatologist or skin care professional if you have specific skin conditions or concerns. In rare cases a hypersensitivity reaction may occur, in which case discontinue use.*

Conclusion

As we come to the end of our journey of Castor Oil’s ageless beauty secrets, let’s take a moment to reflect on the profound wisdom that time gives us.

Fine lines and wrinkles, whether they grace our eyes, lips, forehead, neck or face, are like pages of a book we’ve authored with the pen of life itself. They tell stories of laughter, tears, challenges and triumphs. They speak of a life truly lived, full of experiences that have made us who we are today.

In our search for ageless beauty, and ways to stall the hands of time, Castor Oil can support us.

But remember, these lines, these wrinkles, they’re not our enemies; they’re our companions in this beautiful journey called life. Celebrate the beauty of each wrinkle, and the memories they store.

So, my fellow travelers on the path to ageless beauty, let’s appreciate the passage of time and the wonders of Mother Nature’s Castor Oil as our trusted companion in all things beauty.

How to support hormone and skin health with Castor Oil Packs

Have you been applying pimple creams containing hydroxy acids and/or benzoyl peroxide with no change in those painful and embarrassing pustules?

You see, it can take time to clear up acne, and with the help of Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs to support your hormone and skin health, we can speed up the process in a healthy way. Sounds wonderful, right?

Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Pack support Hormone Balance for a Glowing Skin

One thing I noticed when working with my patients and clients who struggle with hormonal acne breakouts, is that when I improve their liver health and get their hormones in balance, their skin starts GLOWING!

Would you love to wake up each morning to wash your face & shower your body only to feel and see smooth, blemish-free skin looking back at you?

Are your hormones imbalanced and in need of liver support?

Let’s look at the following symptoms:

  • Acne (Inflamed pustules/comedones on face, back, chest, shoulders, buttocks)
  • Skin irritation/rashes
  • Bloating
  • Brain fog
  • Constipation
  • Feelings of anger (liver is associated with emotions like irritability and anger)
  • PMS (tender breasts, cramping, moodiness
  • Waking up between the hours of 1-3am

Is this you? If you experience any of these symptoms it could indicate that your liver needs some love.

In my practice I teach my patients that, when we are not able to remove toxins (due to the need of liver detoxification) from the body optimally we can push them out through the skin, therefore experiencing hormonal acne breakouts.

Recommendations for Hormonal Acne Breakouts

In my personal experience as a Chiropractic Doctor, if I may share, using the following AMAZING recommendations for acne-prone skin, that both myself AND my patients and clients have implemented have resulted in a profound improvement in our skin health:

Here are my favorite ways how:

1. Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Pack for Liver: if you do nothing else, Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Pack for Liver can be an amazing way to help support liver health. Castor Oil helps to reduce inflammation of hormonal acne breakouts, support gut health and support liver detoxification.

2. Add in liver supporting foods: My favorites are cruciferous veggies (broccoli. Cauliflower, arugula, cabbage), green tea, bone broth, dandelion root and leaf, leafy greens, carrots, beets, garlic and pasture-raised eggs.

3. Supporting detoxification pathways by making sure you are sweating a few times each week either through: Activity, a hot Epsom bath or sauna, implementing dry brushing, using a rebounder, acupuncture, muscle work/massage and Chiropractic care.

4. Reduce environmentally toxic exposures: artificial fragrance, artificial ingredients, plastics/BPA.

Remember that what we see on the outside, is a reminder of what needs to be supported on the inside and hormonal acne breakouts are a reminder of ways we can be loving our insides more.

So, if you love the look and feel of soft, smooth, pain-free, acne-free skin, start with your Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Pack for Liver Begin your journey of smooth blemish-free skin by supporting liver cleansing, hormone balancing, absorbing nourishing food and supplements better, reduction of bloating, and best of all no more hormonal acne breakouts!

I know what you are thinking, another claim to beautiful skin—you have tried all of the celebrity endorsed and ‘top rated’ face masks, scrubs, cleansers and wrinkle creams at the beauty counter and haven’t noticed a difference. Well, trust me honey, you are not alone!

The problem is that the majority of these products contain toxic, under-researched chemicals, scents and perfumes that actually may cause long term harm to your system, not to mention make a substantial dent in your wallet.

A Bit of History

Castor Oil is a versatile, safe and natural oil that was used for beauty preservation by Mediterranean Goddesses, Roman Empresses and Egyptian Queens, all of which were known for their striking natural beauty. The legendary Queen Cleopatra even used castor oil as part of her beauty regime!

This oil does it all, potentially replacing your cleansers, toners and even your night time moisturizers. In fact, if you look at the products you are currently using, you will likely notice that Castor Oil is the main ingredient—so why not cut out the rest, and just use this oil as nature intended?

The Science

Aging is typically caused by a loss of nourishment to the skin, which is why we often see fine lines start to form near the gentle skin around the eyes.

Castor Oil is not known to have negative side effects and contains important skin-nourishing nutrients like omega 6 and 9, vitamin E (a known anti-aging vitamin!), amino acids and more. All of which is important to keep us ‘looking young’.

Queen of the Thornes Castor Oil contains Omega 6 9 and vitamin E

The thing that places Castor Oil on the throne as the queen above others, is it is the only oil that contains ricinoleic acid. This divine component of the oil is super ultra moisturizes your skin! 

As Castor Oil is an exceptional emollient as well as nourishes, it may also help to ease dark circles, puffiness, redness and the fine lines around the eyes. It is also used to support hair nourishment and shine, plus enhance thickness of eyebrows and eyelashes.

Of course you must always work on supporting your body with nourishing foods and through digesting those foods well, and secondly by making sure that you are getting good quality, sleep. Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs and the Castor Oil Beauty Mask are two tools that may help support your self-care.

The best part? Your facial care routine can be revamped too! Get rid of the old washes and astringents and let’s cleanse our beautiful faces with a wash that is non-drying, replenishing, skin-balancing, and supportive for removing impurities.

How to do a nightly cleansing oil wash for your face using Castor Oil.

1. Use a clean face cloth.

Place a clean face cloth under warm water (hot enough to touch but not to burn).

2. Wet your face with warm water to open up your skin pores.

Place a clean face cloth under warm water (hot enough to touch but not to burn).

3. Apply Castor Oil on your face.

In the palm of your hand place some Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil (approx.1 tsp), and gently rub it between your clean palms and blot all over your face. Try to concentrate on any areas where you may have make-up such as the eye area.

4. Let the Castor Oil absorb into your skin.

Allow the moisturizing, nourishing Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil to absorb into your skin for a minute or two.

5. Splash your face with warm water.

Splashing your face with warm water will help to pull debris out and help the Castor Oil absorb into your skin.

6. Remove the excess of Castor Oil and residue.

Using the same face cloth, warm it up again, and wipe in an upward motion to remove all of the excess Castor Oil and residue.

How to cleanse your face with Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil

That’s it—5 minutes and DONE!

You will notice your skin feels firmer, plumper and as soft as a baby’s bottom after doing this cleanse.

Throw on your Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Beauty Mask and you are now ready for bed!

The next morning, you’ll only need to refresh your skin with purified water.

Not all Castor Oils are the Same…

Just a reminder that not all Castor Oil is created equally—your Castor Oil should always be organic, expeller or cold-pressed and extra virgin, as well as hexane-free, 100% pure and ALWAYS packaged in a glass bottle.

Never use Castor Oil that comes in a plastic bottle, and if you have any, throw it away! Since ricinoleic acid has the ability to absorb into the skin, we definitely do not want potential toxins leaching into our Castor Oil through plastic bottles.

So now you know that not only is Castor Oil a great addition to your self-care cabinet, it also has a well-deserved place in your beauty regime too!

We would love for you to take a picture of your face before and again in a few weeks to see if you notice a difference for yourself!
