JAMAICAN BLACK Castor Oil – Extra Dark
The primary difference in Jamaican black castor oil versus our standard organic castor oil is the pH level of the finished product. Traditional cold-pressed castor oil tends to have a lower pH, making it fall on the more acidic side of the scale. In comparison, Jamaican black castor oil has a high pH for a more alkaline product. Because of the alkalinity of Jamaican Black Castor oil, it is commonly used in a wide array of ailments including acne, age spots, stretch marks and other skin blemishes, ringworm, fungal infections, sunburn, athlete’s foot, and sebaceous cysts. It is definitely worth having a bottle of this incredible product in your home.
FUN FACT: Unlike regular castor oil, Jamaican Black Castor Oil undergoes a unique roasting process prior to extraction. The castor beans are first roasted and then ground into a paste before being boiled to extract the oil. This roasting process is believed to enhance the oil's potency and dark colour, resulting in the characteristic rich, dark brown or black hue of Jamaican Black Castor Oil. This traditional method has been practiced in Jamaica for generations and is considered to produce a more concentrated and nutrient-rich oil. Additionally, the roasting process gives Jamaican Black Castor Oil a distinct smoky aroma.
