A new salve! I made this Castor Oil & Poke Salve with the intent of helping to assist the body with breaking down uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts. It is to be applied externally and most beneficial when combined with a treatment plan including Herbs to balance and regulate hormones such as my Menstruation Station Tincture, Milk Thistle for liver support, and a clean diet.
As I researched other benefits for this salve I was amazed at all the things I had not thought of. For instance, Poke Root and Castor Oil are both excellent lymphatics. Putting it simply, they move lymph. With that in mind, this salve would be great for assisting the body with swollen lymph nodes or lymphedema. It would also be excellent for supporting healthy joints by reducing inflammation and therefore reducing pain.
This is what I love so much about herbs! They do so many amazing things and have so many overlapping benefits! Even now, I only listed a few of the amazing benefits of Poke and Castor Oil. If you do a little research of your own, you will find out that the list of benefits goes on and on.
