The castor oil pack can be amplified in its efficacy especially when there are hardened tissues. Uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, fibrocystic breasts, lipomas, endometriosis, and other tumours & cysts can be softened and resorbed into adjacent tissues or the blood stream.
The addition of Phytolacca to the castor oil stimulates the immune system and increases the movement of lymph through the tissues perfused by the compound oil. It was in the 13th century that Hildegard of Bingen documented the use of Viola infused olive oil for the use of softening all hardened tissues, which were all called tumours regardless of their origin or contents. She ran a busy infirmary that treated people for many miles around including providing for labour and delivery.
Boswelia is strongly anti-inflammatory, antineoplastic and can also cross the blood brain barrier. Benzoin is antiseptic, anti-oxidant, vulnerary and acts as a preservative in the compound. Monarda is antinauseant, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and aromatic. Lavandula is anti-inflammatory, antirheumatic, antispasmodic and nervine sedative. Additional indications for the Phytolacca oleum compound are for post-op healing of surgical scars or dissolving internal adhesions as a result of traumas causing tears in the fascia or surgical intervention.
Lymphoedema can be relieved with internal use of fluid moving herbs and external use of the Phytolacca oleum. With the addition of rosehip seed oil the treatment of deep scars and cleft lip may be possible.
