Finest Quality Castor oil grade  #1 and the very Best value on pure castor oil!

Our  Castor oil is widely used all kinds of DIY applications from soap and lotion making, blending of lotions, salves, creams, shampoos, and more. Many users also report they have success using it in many other applications and uses. All vegetable derived, Gluten Free. No nuts, grain, dairy, and solvent free. NON GMO. 

Castor oil is known to be a very useful, beneficial oil for soap makers. Castor oil is a staple for  soap making. The right amount of pure castor oil helps the soap  get to trace quicker and creates  more stable foamy lather. 

Castor oil is an excellent moisturizer as it attracts and holds moisture to skin. Check your superfatting chart. Sometimes the addition of castor oil will require more sodium hydroxide since it has the high ricinoleic acid content. In softer products, like shampoo bars and skin-care products, it is excellent. In the right combination with other vegetable oils, however, it makes a very nice moisturizing and hard bar of soap. Try castor oil in salves, balms, shampoos, hair oils, and other thick emulsions for the skin and hair.

In the yard, many use our natural vegetable derived castor oil  to help rid pesky unwanted yard pests like voles and moles. Most users report that they have good success with they blend it in with our all natural corn based surfactant, Decyl Glucoside, and spray in the holes.  Blend in 1 tablespoon of pure Decyl Glucoside with 12- 14 Oz of Pure Castor Oil and put it in your hose end sprayer. For a pump type sprayer add 1 Oz of Decyl Glucoside surfactant to every 32 Oz of Castor oil and then the balance of water up to 2 gallons to treat the mole holes. Spray at least half a gallon in and around the holes. Retreat as necessary. * In tougher situations try adding 2 Oz of natural NEEM OIL to the blend. This will also help with other pesky insects too.

Are you buying 5 gallon pails or 55 gallon drums of our pure castor oil, and need a top quality pump? Check out the GoatThroat pump model GT100  . The GT100 Goat Throat pump can handle a wide variety of liquid products like castor oil easily and safely, and makes the transfer of almost any compatible liquids a breeze.

    Makes a wonderful burrowing animal repellent and deer don't like the taste either. Thanx for an inexpensive source.

    Smoothest Castor Oil

    Posted by Victoria on Mar 11th 2019

    This is the best castor oil that I've tried! It's smooth and thick but not oily. I've been using store brands up until and can tell the difference in my skin and hair since I've started using this one. They've got me hooked.

    Ordered natural mole repellent and found it was corn cob bits soaked in caster oil. Thought I could make my own, with your help. Thanks.
