It has also been shown to increase hair growth in some people and is used to naturally combat hair loss.

To Use: After shampooing and conditioning as you normally would, apply 4 tablespoons to your scalp and vigorously scrub into your hair follicles. Leave for 10 minutes before rinsing. You can also add castor oil to the ends of your hair for a natural leave- in conditioner. Be sure to avoid getting the castor oil into your eyes and mouth.
After checking with your doctor to ensure it is safe, you may try ingesting a therapeutic grade castor oil as a natural laxative to alleviate constipation. Ricinoleic acid, the fatty acid castor oil contains, stimulates a laxative effect in the intestines, therefore inducing bowel movements.
To Use: Ensure the product is 100% pure, therapeutic grade Castor Oil. Ingest 2 teaspoons to induce a bowel movement within 2-6 hours. Repeat in 6 hours if no bowel movement has occurred. (CHECK WITH YOUR HEALTHCARE PROVIDER FIRST BEFORE STARTING ANY NATURAL REMEDY)

Tamanu oil is known scientifically as calophyllum inophyllum, which is a medicinal tree found in Polynesia and on islands in the Pacific Ocean. Tamanu Oil is extracted from the seeds of the calophyllum inophyllum tree and is typically used in the topical treatment of skin injuries from burns, infected wounds and various skin diseases such as urticaria and eczema.
A scientific study published by the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health reported that oil extracted from the calophyllum inophyllum tree was an effective alternative therapeutic strategy to treat infected wounds. This study proved that the use of tamanu oil improved wound healing and was found to have beneficial antibacterial properties.
Another study by Pharmacognosy Magazine evaluated the effectiveness of treatment when calophyllum was used to treat rheumatism, vein issues, hemorrhoids, and gastric issues. The study showed that calophyllum exhibits a wide range of biological activities and is a natural anti-inflammatory. The study showed promise to provide new leads for the development of anti-inflammatory drugs based off of the contents found in calophyllum.
Tamanu oil can be used as a topical treatment for many various skin ailments such as:
- Sunspot Fader. Though it is not a replacement for sunscreen, Tamanu oil can help prevent sun damage. A 2009 study found that Tamanu oil was able to absorb UV light and inhibit 85 percent of the DNA damage induced by UV radiation.
- Skin Healer. Tamanu oil’s anti-inflammatory properties make it a great natural solution to treat inflammatory skin conditions like eczema, urticaria and can even help heal wounds.

The Azadirachta Indica or Neem Tree is a native evergreen tree found in Iran, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Maldives. This plant is harvested and made into an oil from the seeds and tree leaves. Neem oil is usually created by crushing the seeds through a cold press.
Neem has been used for many holistic healing purposes. It contains many healthy compounds such as triglycerides, Omega-6, Omega-9 and Omega-3. It is widely regarded as being an antiseptic, antifungal and has antihistamine properties.
Uses for Neem Oil
- Natural Pesticide: Azadirachtin is the chemical produced from neem oil, which naturally repels insects. Amazingly, it interferes with certain insects’ body systems, inhibiting their ability to eat and reproduce. For example, when exposed to Neem, roundworms also known as nematodes lose their ability to breed. Neem oil has been used for centuries as a natural pesticide and is a main component in hundreds of bug repelling products.
- Pet Care: A diluted neem oil solution can be used as a natural soap or shampoo for pets to keep fleas, ticks, and mites away from your furry friends. It is safe for both indoor and outdoor pets. Neem can naturally protect outdoor animals such as horses from biting flies and mosquitos. Cats, dogs and hamsters can find relief from flea and mite bites as well. It is non-toxic to all animals except for fish/aquatic creatures.
- Gardening:We all know the dangers of toxic exposure to pesticides. Neem oil can help you protect your garden from pests, naturally! As previously mentioned, Neem impacts the insect’s body systems, so it is not an instant bug killer. It should be used to prevent infestations and will take time to eliminate the insect population in your garden. This is a great holistic alternative to dangerous pesticides such as roundup.
