    • Castor Oil Packs & Smoothies?

      May 2, 2012 at 12:13pm

      Hi there, I've done the castor oil packs before (as seen in Essentials Tips) and i used the flannel pack method. I'm curious about the bath method, but I find the instructions a bit vague.
      How long should I leave the castor oil on my stomach before entering the tub?
      How long should I soak for in the bath? The same 30-40 minutes as with the heating pad option?
      Is it okay to do the Epsom salt soak AND the Castor soak in the same bath?

      Thank you, so far I'm absolutely loving this website and this program.
      OH, and while we are at it, when I make the "Love your liver" or "Kidney" smoothies, are we supposed to drink the entire amount in a certain period? Or drink as desired? How much would you recommend as a serving size?

      Thank you! :) Namaste!

      • Thanks for the questions!

        Apply the castor oil just before you are getting into the bath. It is the heat of the bath water that aids its absorption into the body. Stay in the bath anywhere from 20-40minutes. I often combine the epsom salts with the castor oil application so yes you can do them together.

        I always suggest drink and eat as desired. Listen to your body's internal signals for when you are full or are no longer interested in a particular food.

      • Agreed, Kate! The body knows best when it needs more or has had enough. Recommended 'dosages' of certain foods is always just a guideline. I usually start people with 1/2 tsp of spirulina a day and increase in small increments up to a couple of Tablespoons. Some people need/prefer more and some less.
