Castor Oil

Our personal favorite ingredient to add a luxurious, lather component to homemade soap! Castor Oil has many uses, such as use in a nourishing body oil, scrub, shampoo, body wash, and lotions. Its natural, odorless quality also makes it ideal for soaping as it does not affect the overall scent.

    Bubble Making Oil

    Posted by EJ on 14th Nov 2018

    This is a very important ingredient in the Goat Milk Soaps that I make! great for adding conditioning quality and bubbles to the soaps. I am very pleased with the quality, quantity, and packaging of the one gallon jugs of Castor Oil BA sells. I will continue to purchase my Castor Oil and other needed ingredients to make my Goat Milk Soap from BA.

    Best price around for castor oil. I make lots soap dough from the Sorcery Soap recipe, so I manage to burn through it fast. Excellent quality!

    Amazing skin product

    Posted by Monica Campbell on 15th Sep 2018

    This stuff is has been literally a miracle cure for my skin!! Have had a "mystery rash" which dermatologist cannot figure out - it's either eczema or allergy to something (potentially sun, but maybe a plant oil reacting with the sun?) or possibly scabies??? ugh! Has been plaguing me for over a month. I've tried everything from cortisone to every natural and homeopathic remedy under the sun to topical steroids finally. Nothing worked. Tried tea tree oil and neem oil, which both gave a little relief but also slightly irritated the already troubled skin. Finally pulled my BA castor oil off the shelf and gave it a try... and instant relief! Rash has nearly disappeared in hours, and it's the first thing that has actually soothed the insane itching that has left me sleepless for weeks! I can't believe how simple ( and inexpensive!) this is as a cure!! Thank you! Absolutely delighted with the discovery! Castor oil might be my new favorite! (tho I also use your jojoba and argan to make my body products and everyone loves them, but this one for healing is amazing!

    Great Price, Might Go Bad

    Posted by Erin Eubanks on 30th Aug 2018

    I've purchased this oil more than once. The second time I purchased it, it went RANCID before a year. Unfortunately you don't know how long it has sat in their warehouse. They do not put an expiration date on the bottle. So I lost almost an entire 8 lb bottle because of this.
