Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moisture Plus Good for skin care. A small amount can be added to any moisturizer and goes a long way. I wanted to get this to try the dry eye remedy. However, the remedy called for a small glass bottle of the I was leery to try the large size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Castor oil flip top Hi, I am as everyone else here a big fan of this product. Just an FYI for those who would like a flip top. If you have a product (i.e. sauce) and it has a flip top just keep the lid ~ clean well ( do not use if item was spicy) and it works great. You would be surprised at how many lids are interchangeable with other containers. The one I used was from a syrup bottle. I keep extra lids as I re-use glass jars and sometimes the lids disappear, I have the extra in assorted sizes, in plastic and metal. Since the plastic does not touch the product it is okay. Hope this helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Organic Castor Oil Amazing oil! People used to give lip service to the properties of castor oil as I was growing up. It really helps me. Google "castor oil" for yourself to see if it might be what you're seeking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Caster oil for my skin I started using this years ago for my skin. As a child it was given to help have a bowel movement and I thought that was all it was good for. Wrong. I have now been using it for years for my skin. The sun seems to cause certain kind of spots that are dry and sometimes pink or red. This oil helps greatly. Also helps stop the itchy skin that I get at times. However it is important to make sure it is cold pressed as this is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Castor oil I like Swanson's brand castor oil in comparison to another brand that I have purchased in the past. I usually mix it with olive oil to loosen it up a bit due to its thick consistency.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best Most place sell castor oil in tiny bottle for 4 times the price usually in 4oz pack for like 5-6$ and just barely enough for more then 2 use. I bought 2 of these bottle and I use it all the time and I still haven't opened my other bottle yet, thanks to the good size. Also since it is organic you can trust this product isn't loaded with bad toxins, well satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW This is the first time for me to use castor oil and I did castor oil pack on my liver. I did the pack for three days in a row and my urine was almost brown during the three days. I had a break the following 4 days and did the oil pack again for three days. This time my urine was not dark. I don't know what was released from my body but it must work good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Wholesome Oil Out There! I adore Swanson's castor oil. I use it for many home remedies. A super remedy is after a day of gardening & bending, after I shower I rub the castor oil on my feet & wear white socks to bed. I admit I really dislike socks to sleep with, but by morning my feet feel wonderful & surprise-surprise, so does my back. Try it! Thanks Swanson!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Organic and a Good Value I use castor oil in many homemade health and beauty preparations, so I was happy to find that Swanson's own brand was certified organic. The 16 oz. bottle is a good value.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bottle leaked and made a mess on whole order Although the bottle appeared to be unopened and no visible damage to the bottle, it leaked and made a huge mess in my box and on my whole product order. Very displeased to receive an oily mess when i opened my box. This is my first time to purchase oil from swanson, so don't know if this is usual or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for hair I use to buy products with Castor Oil in it for my hair. I just did not know I could get it by itself until I saw it at Swansons. This is a great organic Castor oil.It is not too heavy. I use it for my hair, it keeps it in great condition. I also use it as a moisterizer for my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OCM I use caster oil mixed with olive oil to cleanse my skin every night. I have oily skin and it has helped with that a lot. Before I was just stripping my skin every night and my skin was producing a lot of oil to compensate. I still have to blot around noon every day, but not as much as I used to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for hair & skin I use Castor oil regularly for my natural african-american curly hair. It adds nice moisture with minimal oiliness. I also put it on my lips sometimes to help with the harsh Chicago winter weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great value I recently purchased a 2 ounce bottle of castor oil from a local chain drug store for about half the price I paid for the 16 ounce bottle that I got from Swansons! I could tell no difference in the quality of the oils themselves, so that makes Swansons product a great value in my opinion. I add a little spearmint oil to the castor oil and the smell is refreshing. Castor oil doesn't have a strong odor, but it does have an odor and adding a little spearmint oil makes it easier on the nose. The one improvement I would like to see is a flip top spout built into the cap to make it easier to dispense . Then it is perfect!
