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. Later, the ancient Greeks, and other Europeans during the Middle Ages, cultivated and used the plant, many of whom attested to the now popular Castor Oil benefits and uses!

    @$#%&*! Gophers!

    I've been using Castor oil as a gopher repellant for a few years now, it works like a champ, the only drawback is you have to reapply every 4 to 6 weeks. They don't like the smell, it makes the ground stinky so they retreat to an unsprayed area. I'm pushing them into a small area that I can rip up with a tiller and hopefully churn their lawn wrecking little corpses back into the earth.

    Castor oil

    Posted by Unknown on 11th Jan 2019

    To be honest I'm use to using black castor oil as I'm from Jamaica, definitely not what I was expecting when it arrived. Although it's my fault for not ensuring I was getting what I wanted but even though it's clear; it's just as thick and rich as the black castor oil. However, it doesn't smell as strong as black castor oil, regardless this is still an amazing product especially for the price and the amount. The speedy shipping is also a huge plus, I definitely recommend them.

    Posted by Brian on 30th Dec 2018

    Great product. I mixed this with safflower oil and some of my favorite essential oils and this is nearly identical to bath and body works’ “nourishing body oils”. oils This is a must have for DIY’ers. Thanks BA, I can always count on you for high quality products at an affordable rate. I also used this in some whipped body butter recipes. Great stuff!!
