What is Castor Oil? It is an oil extracted by the pressing of the Castor Oil plant, Ricinus Communis. Depending on the country of cultivation, Castor Oil plants can grow between 4 feet to 40 feet tall. The long, curved, polished leaves on purplish foot-stalks are alternatively arranged on the stem. Mature leaves are blue-green when fully expanded, and paler beneath; however, young leaves are red and shiny. Interestingly, the Ricinus Communis has both a male and female flower, with the male growing on the under portion of the spike and the female growing on the upper portion. The blunt, greenish, deeply-grooved capsule like fruit of the Castor Oil plant is less than one (1) inch long and produces compressed oval seeds, which are pressed to obtain Castor Oil.
Native to India, Ricinus Communis it is still known by several ancient Sanskrit names, the most popular ancient name being Eranda. Castor Oil plants is a native of India,, which has passed into several other Indian languages. It is believed Castor seeds, and one might add the plant itself, was used in early Bible times, which the ancient Egyptians being its early major consumers.

I wasn't sure what to expect with the Castor Oil, as I've never used it before. So far, it has worked out great! It's easy to pour, very thick, and seems to be a sturdy oil for soap making.

Normally I make a trip to competitor store and let me tell you. The price of same size, same quality Castor oil is $8.99. Now, I don't mind paying that however, I know from now on its worth the wait.. Thanks

We use castor with liquid dish soap (don't use antibacterial soap) to discourage the little lawn destruction devils. It won't kill them, but hopefully they will go someplace other than my lawn.

Not much I can add to previous reviews. Great products, awesome service. Best prices on the net. I make hot process soap on a very small scale and BA makes it worthwhile. I am a customer for life.
