How to Relieve Back Pain with Castor Oil thumbnail
The use of Castor oil as an herbal remedy dates back to the ancient Egyptians
If you suffer from regular or sporadic back pain, the simplest tasks in life can be torturous to do. Perhaps you have tried every new “quick fix remedy” that comes on the market, hoping this will finally relieve you from pain and misery. Well, here’s a technique that combines the healing power of Castor oil to not only ease the pain, but also relieve the inner self of a lot of stress. Castor oil’s medicinal use dates back to the ancient Egyptians, and is just as effective today.

Things You’ll Need

  • Washing machine
  • Clothes dryer
  • Large fluffy towel
  • 1/8th cup of Castor oil
  • Peppermint essential oil
  • Woodlock essential oil
  • Citrus blend essential oil
  • Squeeze bottle
  • Large plastic bag or small kitchen trashbag
  • Heating pad


    • 1
      Moisten a towel by spinning it in your washer. A spin in the washer is the fastest, most effective way to distribute moisture evenly in your towel, rather than wetting it and wringing it out.
    • 2
      Place the moistened towel in your dryer to warm it up. The moist heat from the warm towel is necessary to make the process effective.
    • 3
      Add the essential oils to the castor oil, using no more than two or three drops of each essential oil that you select.
    • 4
      Gently warm the oils with by placing the mixture into a sink-full of hot water. The oil is ready when it is warm to the touch–but not too hot for your comfort. Pour it into a squeeze bottle.
    • 5
      Dribble the warmed oil mixture over the area that pains the most. Place the moistened, pre-warmed towel over the oil. Spread the plastic over the towel, and then the heating pad over the plastic. Set the heating pad at a low temperature. Leave this layered treatment on for 20 to 25 minutes, as you rest and relax.
