Benefits of castor oil (castor oil)

You know what is the castor oil? It is an oil that is non-toxic and extremely beneficial to the health of the human being. The most curious thing is that it is extracted from the seeds of the castor oil plant (its seeds contain about 40 to 50% of the oil!!!), a very common plant in the brazilian territory, and only a few years ago is being tapped “truth” – as they discovered that it can be used as biodiesel, which has given to this oil the status of important product for the economy and the environmental preservation.

However, despite the “boom”of the issue of biodiesel with castor oil, the castor is already used for its medicinal effects since ancient times.
