Castor Oil : an excellent remedy for fissures
Oil extracted by cold-pressing Castor seeds, available in Pharmacies as Castor oil, is a thick, sticky, acrid-smelling oil.
Yet, for all its unpleasant acrid smell, is a most excellent remedy for curing fissures of all kinds.
I use it regularly for anal fissures in children and for tiny but very painful fissures which occur around nipples, during early lactation.
The oil helps in reducing pain and pus formation when it is applied on superficial skin abrasions as well.
A drop of this ( clean ) oil put in the eyes serves to alleviate burning of the eyes, as occurs when one stays out in the sun for too long.
Castor oil is a very useful and inexpensive remedy indeed!

I have always heard jokes about Mom's giving Castor Oil to their families orally for problems. It is nice to hear that it really is good for something.
Like Toni I knew it was good for ... shall we say..... relieving internal blockages but had no idea of its othere uses.
Toni, I thought about this. It might work for chapped skin, but would be too sticky to keep on your hands for long enough for it to do any good.
I use castor oil in my home made soaps and shampoos. Wonderful stuff!
