Castor Oil • Shrink Fibroadenomas, Cysts, Lumps, and Tumors Holistically

A powerful healing ally for healthy breasts.


Castor oil has been used for thousands of years and there is nothing this medicinal oil won’t heal. And it works, I mean really works. It played an important role in my healing journey. I’ve used it in so many different ways and I’m always astonished at the results. Huge pimple? Fibroids or fibroadenomas? Super dry skin? If there was one oil I would recommend everyone have in their medicine cupboard, it’s castor oil. 

If you’re dealing with any kind of breast imbalance, it’s important to know that castor oil is incredibly powerful but not a panacea. For instance, if you haven’t corrected your nutrient deficiencies, balanced your hormones, or reduced your stress, castor oil will only work up to a certain point. It’s important to look at healing from a holistic approach. We need to regain homeostasis on the emotional, physical and spiritual plane. If you’re looking for guidance, head over to Nurture, our new online workshop that will help you heal your imbalances and create health holistically.



Breast benefits include shrinking and healing benign masses and swellings, including cysts, lumps, tumors, fibroadenomas, and improves lymphatic drainage.

  • …. yup, theres’s more….


  • Wonderful for vatas. Give yourself a foot massage with castor oil before bed. Very grounding.
  • Liver congestion? Apply a castor oil pack over the affected area.
  • *Incredibly important that the oil you’re using is cold pressed, organic and hexane free


 Castor Oil Pack 


You will need:

  • Castor oil (organic and hexane free)
  • Hot water bottle
  • An old shirt you don’t mind getting stained (castor oil stains)
  • 30-60 min for 3-4 days a week
  • Determination to keep going for a minimum of 6 months



  • Put some castor oil on the affected area. Could be liver, breasts, ovaries, uterus, and so on.  Make sure you cover the whole area and it’s well saturated. Castor is quite thick and sticky.
  • Wear an old t-shirt. Castor oil stains.
  • Place a hot water bottle  (I stay away from heating pads because of the EMF radiation they emit).
  • Relax for 30-60 min. The longer the better but 30 min is a good place to start.
  • This treatment is known to shrink fibroids, tumours, clear liver and intestinal congestion, promote healthy lymph, etc.
  • You can google how to do this, however some methods are a bit more complicated. The method I’ve just outlined is quick, easy and just as effective.
  • Write it down and schedule it. I generally do this in the evenings while reading a book or watching a movie. A great excuse (if you need one) to take some time for yourself.
  • There’s a magic to writing things down. If I don’t write it, it doesn’t happen.
  • This is not a quick fix so stick with it!



When I don’t have time to enjoy a castor oil pack ritual, I make sure to at least apply it on the affected area before bed. I’ve been applying it almost nightly on my tumor and it’s has shrunk 2.3 cm. Along with many other tools, that you’ll discover in Nurture, castor oil has been a wonderful ally in my healing journey.

  • Put it on before taking a bath. The heat will help increase absorption.
  • Put it on right after a shower or before going to bed.
  • Combine it with other oils or essential oils, as it’s deeply penetrating. For example combine it with lavender, tea tree oil or frankincense to treat pimples.

Caveat:  I repeat, castor oil stains!
