Soapmaking - Castor oil is a very useful, beneficial oil soap making. It is typically used in relatively  low percentages depending on the over-formulation and what other oils are used. The addition of the right amount of pure castor oil  may enable soap to trace quicker, and make better soap. Plus. castor oil adds the benefit of better and more stable lather. Castor oil is an excellent moisturizer as it attracts and holds moisture to skin.  Check your superfatting chart. Sometimes using castor oil will require more sodium hydroxide since it has a high ricinoleic acid content. In softer products, like shampoo bars and skin-care products it is excellent. In the right  combination with over vegetable oils, however, it makes a very nice moisturizing and wonderfully emollient, hard bar of soap.

Also try using it to formulation balms, shampoos, hair oils, and other thick emulsions for the skin and hair. 

Castor Oil is also seen in formulations as a  natural emollient and applied to the skin and hair as a softener.(keep away from eyes!)


In the yard, use pure castor oil to get rid of Moles. Blend it in with our all natural corn based surfactant, Decyl Glucoside, and spray in the mole holes in your yard to rid it of those pesky critters.

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.

Other uses: Castor Oil is a a good mold release. Blend with ethyl alcohol or odorless mineral spirits as a mold release for concrete in silicone molds (test first)
