Jamaican Black Castor Oil: Beating Science With Experience

For years, people across the globe have depended on pharmaceutical companies for their medicinal needs in almost everything. And yes, the medical formulations these companies have prepared, brought us great benefits. However, they also carried certain drawbacks. We practically have no idea about the chemicals that they put into these medicines which have led to adverse effects that we sometimes suffer. But in recent years, people across the globe have turned to cheaper alternative medicines theorized to help heal or supplement health in its most natural form.

The Jamaican Black Castor Oil is like any other castor oil when it comes to its root source. It comes from the seeds of the castor plant also known as Ricinus communis. The only difference here is how it is prepared.

Many herbal oil formulations which are being produced worldwide follow some acceptable standard preparation. The seeds are pressed to produce the oil. This will obviously be collected. The Jamaican Black Castor Oil is prepared differently where, instead of pressing the seeds first, they are roasted till they turn black. But not too much that they will dry up. The resultant color of the seeds is the reason behind the name Black Castor Oil.

According to most practitioners, the Jamaican Black Castor Oil is more potent than its regular counterpart. It may have been the effect of the heat on the seeds. It may have stirred up some of its natural contents resulting to the production of oils which are more potent. The reason behind this is the change in its pH which becomes more alkaline than usual. And the higher the pH, the more potent it becomes especially in cleansing any part of the body.

Moreover, its alkaline nature also makes the pores seem like more permeable. It easily passes through thus increasing the chances of causing its effects on the body.

Jamaican Black Castor Oil also has different variations depending on the process with which it is prepared. And each kind of formulation has its own indication.

Three of the more common preparations of castor oil include being cold pressed and the difference again is in the first step. Then there is also the traditional Jamaican way which was discussed above. Lastly, it’s extracting the oil from the castor seeds using a particular solvent. This is the one we see in the market. This particular preparation is mass produced by pharmaceutical companies.

As you can see, there are also variations within a variation. These are done in order to address certain needs of users. Again, this shows how complex the world is and how many wonders we can cull out from its simple beginnings.

Yes, there may not be enough scientific studies to back the potency of the Jamaican Black Castor Oil. But there are proven actual user-experiences that have beaten conceptual studies. Not everything effective comes from the laboratory.
