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’.

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!
