I am going through the phase at the moment, trying to finish all my carrier oils while they are in dates. First oil to run out is the Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil.
I used this oil in some of my DIY Beauty recipes in the past. Personally I prefer Castor oil as an ingredient, than on its own. Castor oil usually has thick and sticky consistency and woody scent to it. The oil is perfect as an overnight hair treatment and worked magic on my hair along with 1ml of Argan oil.
A little bit about Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil. It has a medium consistency, a light ashy aroma and a high ash content, ideal for regrowing damaged, dry or fading hair. Sunny Isle's organic castor seeds are roasted and ground by a manual grinder and then the crushed beans are boiled to extract the 100% pure, dark brown, organic oil.

I wanted to use this opportunity and share some beauty benefits of Castor oil.
The oil is widely famous for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Oils is used in various cosmetics, soaps and massage oils owing to the fact that it has plenty of benefits for your hair and skin.
Hair benefits. Castor oil stimulates hair growth for all hair type thanks to omega-9 essential fatty acids. Oil helps to reduce split ends and hair breakage, it has conditioning and moisturising properties to promote overall hair health. Along with hair thickness, Castor oil helps to return hair shine and gloss.
Due to its properties Castor oil is great for eye lashes and eyebrows.
Castor oil can help to eliminate minor scalp conditions, like itchy scalp and dandruff due to its anti-fungal and antibacterial properties.
Skin benefits. Castor oil is able to penetrate deep into the skin, soften and hydrate it. The oil also helps to promote the production of elastin and collagen, which helps to delay the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Castor oil is a wonderful ingredient to add into your cleansing oil mixes. It will not just remove all impurities and make-up, but also will nourish and moisturise your skin. This oil is perfect for dry or sun skin due to its soothing properties.
