Common Uses: Castor Carrier Oil is popular as a conditioning agent in hair-care products, and is widely used in soap-making and skin-care products.
Consistency: Typical and Characteristic of Carrier Oils.
Absorption: By design, Castor Oil will remain on the surface of the skin, acting as a barrier.
Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of up to 2 years with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended. Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis for current Best Before Date.
Please note that the drum tap will not work for Castor USP Carrier Oil as its consistency is too viscous.

Rating: Love this oil SO much! I use it mixed with coconut oil and EOs for my scalp, and also poured it in melted cocoa butter and it resulted in such a beautifully moisturizing body butter. I was disappointed seeing the organic version come out immediately after I purchased this one, but nonetheless, this is some good stuff!
Rating: Great value, great product! It works perfectly in all of my facial oils.
By:Zachary, Chalk River, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Jul-2014
Rating: Great oil! Works awesome in CP soap to add a lot of lather. I also love using this in my hair treatments
By:Victoria, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-May-2013
Rating: I love this in lip balm. It adds great sheen. NDA's version is very mild in odour. I've added at 20 percent in my lip balm recipe and it seem to be the perfect amount.
By:Angie, West Kelowna, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Jan-2015
Rating: I use this for body areas (groin, etc) that go overly moist during summer! Also PERFECT for those who want thicker eyebrows and eyelashes! It didn't even take a week before small hairs started growing where my eyebrow hairs wouldn't grow! Can't wait for these baby hairs to fully grow!
By:John, Markham, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Mar-2015

Rating: Great oil for skin care, I love mixing it into my lip balms and creams, also using it for oil cleansing. Great price and quality
By:Elvira, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Feb-2012
Rating: A wonderful product. I blend it with Shea Butter for a great lathering soap. imagine how moisturizing is this Shea butter and Castor oil soap!. This oil is so versatile! add a few drops to your hot oil hair treatment and feel the difference. Thank you NDA.
Rating: Very rich and sticky oil that I mix with lighter-weight oils in a facial blend for its skin barrier properties. It does have a bit of a funky smell but with some added essential oils it is undetectable. I also use it in an oil blend for my scalp and hair pre-shampoo, as it is reputed to encourage hair growth and it provides a deep conditioning treatment for my colour treated hair. I've also used it medicinally in an oil soaked cloth (as a pack) to stimulate organ detox during a specific cleanse that it was indicated for. I could go on, but the myriad of castor oil uses is easily found online. Thanks New Directions.
Rating: I love how creamy thick and smooth this oil is, it is excelelnt quality, with a fantastic price, i call it my liquid gold in all my CP soap recipes. It really is fantastic quality, best castor oil i've used to date!
Rating: I loved this oil I just wish I bought a bigger size. Great price too. Thanks NDA

Rating: a very reasonable price with quality.
By:Meya, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 17-Oct-2013
Rating: I love adding this oil to ALL my CP soaps. I bought the 1000ml bottle, which I find to be the perfect size to work with. Easy to pour, and adds lots of lather to my soaps. Excellent product! Will definitely come back for more.
Rating: Love this oil, I always use it in my Cold Process Soap. Thanks NDA!
By:Jackie, Golden, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-May-2013
Rating: This oil is a staple in my Cold Process soaps, it is a must have for adding extra bubbles and lather. It is also very affordable! Thanks again New Directions,
By:Jalisa, Guelph, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Nov-2011
Rating: This product is good. It is perfect to seal the water in the hair because it's thick. It's also really sticky. I've never try it in a homemade skincream because of its thickness and its not in my intention (I prefer lighter oils).
Ce produit est correct, il permet de bien empecher l'eau de s'évaporer des cheveux à cause de sa consistence (Je vaporise mes cheveux avec de l'eau puis j'en met une petite quantité pour ''seal'' .)
C'est très collant et épais, j'opterais pour une huile plus légère .
Je ne l'ai jamais essayé dans des produits pour la peau et ce n'est pas dans mes intentions vu sa consistence.
Rating: Great product, I love the bottle the 1000ml comes in, makes it so much easier to pour than the white pails.
By:Marta, Ajax, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Apr-2012
Rating: Tried it in CP soaps and the bars came out super bubbly! Previous uses were restricted to lip balms and hand creams but with the price, I can afford to go nuts!
By:Sharon, Mississauga, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Nov-2011
Rating: I use this for OCM and it's definitely top-notch and at a great price!
By:Tasnim, Vancouver, British Columbia
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Dec-2012
Rating: A nice thick oil for use almost anywhere. As a base in oil cleansing, as a finishing hair oil to lock in moisture and other oils overnight, to clean the scalp with its anti-fungal properties. I couldn't be happier with the price either.
By:Elisabeth, Caledon East, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 21-Nov-2012
Rating: Perfect in soap and this is the best price I've found anywhere.
By:Kathleen, Edmonton, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Oct-2012
Rating: Give a great foaming action to soap and is very soft on the skin. It's also really great in lip balm.
Rating: Great product, would buy it again, pretty good price.
By:Marta, Ajax, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Apr-2012
Rating: I love that oil and need it in all the soaps I made, plus in my lip balms. It is a total need. The price is so interesting too !
Je me sers de l'huile de ricin dans tous mes savons (augmente la mousse), et dans mes baumes à lèvres. J'adore aussi le prix !
By:Louise, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Feb-2006
Rating: Thickest oil that I've used. It feels waxy on skin. I like how it coats the skin instead of absorbing into the skin.
By:Tuan, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Apr-2012
Rating: Can't beat the price! But this oil is just wonderful. Just add a little bit in lip balm or hand cream and you can feel the difference!
By:Manon, Rawdon, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Jun-2011
Rating: This oil is amazing and is a must have in my cp soaps! The price is great too :)

Rating: The castor oil that I bought from NewDirectionsAromatics has been wonderful. You get such a large quantity of castor oil for such a little price. I am very happy with my purchase.
Rating: Seriously, who needs SLS when you have natural, Castor Oil? Nothing can beat God's Bounty! Suds Galore!! This is a must have for my soap and with the 20L container, it will make many, many bars. Very competitive pricing.
By:Farkhanda, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Feb-2010
Rating: This oil is a great addition to soaps, shampoo bars, and OCM blends--and you can't beat the price! I'll definitely be getting more of this when I run out.

Rating: A superior carrier oil at a great price. The colour varies from a very pale yellow to a more golden colour. Won't make soap without it. Also use it in my lip butters. Won't purchase it anywhere else!
By:Terry, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Oct-2008
Rating: Castor oil is my staple carrior oil. Its great for general skincare products from soap to body massage oils. I've recently been making lip gloss with it. It super on its own or is best mixed with other raw ingredients if you want to combine it with other theraputic benefits.
Rating: Good castor oil at a great price! It doesn't smell too strong and the color isn't too dark (it's a golden oil). I use it in soap, cleansing oil, and lip balms. Awesome in shaving soaps too!
By:Kristelle, Granby, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 12-Feb-2007
Rating: Castor's Castor right? Or at least that's what I thought till I used New Directions Castor oil.
This Castor Oil surpasses that from other suppliers and makes a noticeable difference in all your natural cosmetics.
By:Romeo, Guelph, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Aug-2007
Rating: I use castor oil for making my cold process soap and liquid soap.
castor oil acts as a humectant by attracting and retaining mosture to the skin.
also, I added castor oil for my shampoo making. I make liquid soap for my hair.
I combine coconut oil, castor oil, shea butter, hemp seed oil and jojoba oil for make my liquid hair soap
