It is called the “Palma Christi”, Latin for the palm of Christ and has many healing properties. Doctors at the Edgar Cayce Clinic (former A.R.E. Clinic), under the guidance of Dr. William McGarey, used castor oil for virtually every aspect of health.
Castor Oil was recommended by Edgar Cayce for treating many ailments that resist traditional therapies. It can be applied as a balm for skin problems, a soothing tonic for alleviating allergies, and as a “castor oil pack.” Known to conventional medicine only as a strong laxative, this extract of the castor bean is a safe, gentle, easy-to-use remedy for virtually any illness-when it is used externally.
