How to Use Castor Oil Packs to Help Dissolve Growths and Heal Scar Tissue

Castor Oil Packs For Breast Cancer Scar Tissue

By: Dr. Christina Grant – Holistic Healer, Intuitive Counselor, Teacher, and Author of The Holistic Approach to Breast Cancer.

There is always room in our toolbox for one more powerful way to heal, don’t you agree? Most of the time I find that the methods we can use for self-healing are so simple! They can be incredibly basic to the point we might wonder whether they are effective. Yet, they can be potent. One of these simple-but-powerful tools is the use of a castor oil pack.

Information about castor oil packs came from the intuitive readings of Edgar Cayce in the early part of the 20th century. In these readings, he recommended the application of castor oil for various ailments. For example, the packs are used on the liver to help with detoxification, the abdomen for digestive complaints, the uterus for fibroids, and on the breasts to help dissolve growths.

Castor oil is made up of a triglyceride of fatty acids, 90% of which is ricinoleic acid, an unsaturated fatty acid. Ricinoleic acid has been shown to be effective in preventing the growth of various types of bacteria, yeast, molds, and viruses.

In his book The Oil That Heals: A Physician’s Success with Castor Oil Treatments, William McGarey, M.D. says castor oil stimulates and removes adhesions and lesions. It helps dissolve lumps in the breasts and heal scar tissue. Using castor oil packs can enhance eliminations of all kinds, increase lymph flow, and relieve pain and inflammation. I believe my own use of castor oil packs reduced breast pain from cysts, decreased the size of my tumor, improved my recovery from surgery, softened scar tissue, and dissolved calcifications.

How to Use a Castor Oil Pack

  1. Cotton flannel is often recommended, but I prefer to use an unbleached pre-washed white t-shirt cut into wide strips and folded so there are at least three layers.
  2. Place the folded cotton on plastic wrap, with the plastic just larger than the fabric piece.
Pour castor oil over the cotton to saturate it (but not dripping).
Place the pack on the location, oily side down, plastic on top.
 Put a thin towel over the plastic and cover it with a hot water bottle or other heated pack. Avoid using electric heating pads if possible, as the electrical current can cause disturbances in your energy field. You can use a microwaveable heating pad.
Rest with the pack on for about 30 minutes.
  3. Castor oil will stain fabric, so when you are finished with the pack, wipe the oil away completely. You might want to wear an old t-shirt or designate a couple of shirts specifically to wear right after you use the packs.

Be sure to drink plenty of water to help flush out toxins. You can reuse your pack at least 20 times by keeping it in the refrigerator between uses. Bring it to room temperature before using it. Some people use the packs for three days and take a break for three days, but you can use the packs for many consecutive days, occasionally taking a break for a week at a time and, for pre-menopausal women, during your monthly cycle.

  3. Hi – I finished 16 sessions of radiation for a lymph tumor that was wrapping around my superior vena cava. I didn’t want the radiation, but was told by 7 different drs, including 2 naturopathic drs, that that was my only option. I don’t want this to grow back. Would castor packs help dissolve it more? Thank you.

    I would love to know, did you actually use castor oil on a cancerous breast tumor? I have breast cancer, and am trying to skink the lump naturally.. Thank you!


    • I also have breast cancer, have been using natural healing techniques, but I would suggest seeing a naturopathic physician because you are going to need support. Mine specializes in cancer treatment. I tried doing it on my own and was doing some things right, some things wrong. Castor oil treatment does seem to help. There are many herbs and supplements that are good. It can get quite expensive. You can check out cancer for a long list of helpful supplements.
