CASTOR OIL (Oleum Ricini)





Category: Medical Uses of Some Common Household Articles

This is derived from the beans of Ricinis
Communis, a plant in the United States.

Action. It is bland and unirritating in its action as a purge and
generally acts in four to five hours.

Uses. It is used whenever irritant materials such as bad food, putrid
flesh, decaying vegetables have been eaten, to move the bowels. It is good
in diarrhea produced by above causes and others, such as corn, peanuts,
cherry stones, berries. It is apt to produce piles and constipation if
used constantly. It is often given in the form of capsules containing from
one-fourth to one teaspoonful. Dip the capsules in water, as this renders
them slippery and are easily swallowed. Dose is from one to six
teaspoonfuls.
