Castor oil, also commonly known as Arandi ka tel, is a vegetable oil produced by pressing the Castor beans. It is useful for skin, hair and to manage various other diseases.
Castor oil is mainly used to manage constipation due to its laxative property. It promotes bowel movement when taken with milk or water and thus improves digestion which helps in easy elimination of fecal waste from the body. Castor oil also helps in arthritis by reducing pain and swelling due to its anti-inflammatory property.
Castor seed oil is considered to be beneficial for the skin due to the presence of certain fatty acids. Regular application of Castor seed oil improves the skin tone.
