Have you spotted Jamaican black castor oil on your recent visit to the essential oil store but don’t know the benefits and purpose of the oil? You might be curious to know what makes Jamaican black castor oil different from millions of other types of oils.

Well, every oil has some natural properties that are unique to it. In this article, we are going to discuss some innate characteristics of Jamaican black castor oil: keep reading!

Mystery Behind Its Name

This type of castor oil is extracted from seeds traditionally found in Jamaica that’s why it is known as Jamaican black castor oil. The oil is brown or black and has a thick consistency. Native people have been using it for centuries owing to its benefits.

Extraction Process

The extraction process involves the following steps:

  • Roasting: Castor oil seeds are roasted first to increase the yield of oil and the antioxidants in it.
  • Grinding: Then these roasted seeds are ground. The ashes from the roast give the oil its black colour.
  • Boiling: Then these roasted and ground castor seeds are brought to a boil and pressed to release the oil.

Is Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO) Different From Regular Castor Oil?

Some of the reasons why Jamaican black castor oil is different from traditional castor oil are:

  • Unlike regular castor oil, which is extracted by pressing the castor oil seeds at low temperatures, JBCO needs high temperatures for its extraction.
  • Usually, castor oils are clear or have a slight yellow tint, are slightly thick in consistency, and are odorless. JBCO has a roasted smell, a brown or black color, and a thick texture.
  • Jamaican black castor oil has an alkaline pH due to the presence of ash in it. This alkalinity enhances the oil’s absorption.


                                                     Health Benefits Of Jamaican Black Castor Oil


Some health benefits that are exclusive to Jamaican black castor oil include:

1. Treating Acne:  

The anti-inflammatory properties of JBCO make it an effective treatment. The oil gently cleans the pores, removing dirt and impurities while not clogging them. Also, this Jamaican black castor oil nourishes the skin, soothes pain, and reduces acne marks through the process of skin healing.

2. Strengthening Hair:

It’s a matter of fact that, despite the availability of so many hair moisturizer products on the market, our hair ends up drier than before. Hair breakage and split ends are more common. The one solution to all such problems is JBCO. This oil is rich in omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids that nourish the hair, improving its texture and growth. Apply a small amount of oil between your hands and massage it into your hair roots. Leave it overnight for better absorption. Then wash with a natural shampoo afterward. Not only does your scalp hair grow stronger and longer with JBCO, but also your eyelashes become thicker and longer.

3. Anti-fungal:

Due to its pure nature, the oil is free of any chemicals or additives. It has an antimicrobial effect that helps spread germs. Also, it has undecylenic acid, which has antifungal properties. 


4. Skin Nourisher:

Our skin bears the stress of dealing with several factors. Dust, bacteria, and sunlight are the external issues, while dry skin, hormonal changes, and diseases are a few to name among many internal problems. JBCO is a single remedy to all these issues. By nourishing your skin with its fatty acids, the oil restores the skin barrier, repairing any damaged patches. Also, it boosts collagen formation and hence proves itself as an antiaging agent. You get fresher, plumper, and healthier skin with regular Jamaican black castor oil.


5. Scar Healing: 

Scars are permanent marks in your skin due to the involvement of deeper layers of skin. Facial scars give you a tough time when you try to get rid of them. Try applying a small amount of Jamaican black castor oil to the scars. The oil discourages new skin growth in the scar tissue, in this way, old skin cells pile up on top of it and the scar appears to be fading.


6. Relieves Muscular Pain:

The oil has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce joint and muscular pain. To soothe your sore joints and muscles, apply and rub the warm oil with a piece of wool on the affected area. It’s better to use plastic wrap on the wool to let it stay over the area until the oil gets absorbed and to avoid it spilling everywhere. Regular use of JBCO soothes sore muscles and joints.

7. Menstrual Cramps:

Make a JBCO heating pad by dousing wool in hot oil and covering it with plastic wrap. Place it on the lower abdomen to relieve period pain. The remedy works to relieve aching period cramps.

8. Sleep disturbance:

Those with insomnia issues can have sound sleep after applying the JBCO. Massage one or two drops of oil into your eyelids. It relaxes your body and leads to a peaceful slumber.

9. Improves Digestion:

Castor oil has long been known to relieve constipation. Jamaican black castor oil retains this innate property of castor oil. When ingested, JBCO acts as a stimulant laxative that starts more bowel movements in your intestine. As a result, constipation is relieved, and digestion improves as the intestines get more room for food.

10. Heal Cracked Lips:

As a powerful moisturizer, Jamaican black castor oil can heal chapped lips. Just mix it with beeswax and butter and regularly apply it to cracked lips. Lips heal quickly, and regular application prevents chapped lips from recurring.
