astopak is an external application of castor oil to the body. The soft organic bamboo flannel is saturated with castor oil and placed on a specific area of the body.

It can play an important role in a detoxification program by placing the castor oil over the liver area. This also supports the lymphatic system to work more efficiently in removing toxins from the body.

How To Administer Castopak

Pour one to two tablespoons of Castor oil evenly on to the soft bamboo pad, avoid saturating the edges. Fold the pad in half to ensure maximum coverage over all areas of the pad. The castor oil can also be rubbed directly onto the skin.

Place the pad directly on to the skin, make sure that the liver area is covered with the pad, for maximum benefits. If using castopak for painful joints apply directly to the affected area. Secure the pad by using the elastic straps.

You can use castopak at any time of the day, but it is more effective if you can set time aside and go and lie down on your back. Castor oil can stain, ensure that you don’t get the oil on clothing or bedding by lying on an old towel.

Leave the pad on for at least one hour or you can use it overnight. You can apply heat over the pad by using a heat pad or hot water bottle.

When the treatment is finished remove the castor oil from the skin with soap and water.

For maximum benefits use the castopak at least three to four days a week for one month. Monitor the results of the procedure by documenting any significant benefits in a diary or journal.

Please ensure that you use adequate protection when using the Castopak as castor oil is very sticky and will stain clothing.
