Tips for First Time Castor Oil Queens

If you're trying Castor Oil for the first time, you might be feeling a bit unsure about where to begin. But fear not, we've got you covered with our top tips to ensure your castor oil journey is a resounding success.


First things first, let's talk texture. When you first squeeze that precious golden elixir onto your fingertips, you might be surprised by the thick, almost sticky consistency. But don't let that deter you! Embrace it and take your time massaging the oil into your skin. You'll find that it absorbs quickly, leaving behind a luxuriously nourished, never-oily feel.


Now, let's talk timelines. Within the first month of consistent daily use, your body will be undergoing a transformative process at the cellular level. While the changes might not be immediately visible, your skin will be becoming more hydrated, and your natural oils will begin to balance out. The unique compound in IAMA castor oil are working hard to nourish and rejuvenate you from the inside out. Remember, this is a journey, not a sprint, so be patient and trust the process.


By the second month, you might start to notice some exciting results. Your scalp may feel healthier, your hair might look thicker and shinier, and your skin will be positively glowing. Castor oil's fatty acids create pathways that enable other beneficial nutrients to be absorbed deep into your skin. If you don't see significant changes yet, don't worry – natural products sometimes take a little time to reset and rebalance your body.


And then, the real magic happens after three months.


Your skin, your largest organ, works in cycles of 45-90 days, and now it's had the nourishment it needs to truly heal and repair. It's renewing and flourishing, thriving off castor oil's lipophilic (fat-loving) qualities. Vital fats and oils are now being absorbed, and moisture can pass through your skin's sebum-rich outer layers with ease. Prepare to be amazed by the superpowers of this natural wonder!

5 Tips for Embarking on Your Castor Oil Healing Journey

  1. Start Slow With Small Amounts & Gradually Increase
    When incorporating IAMA castor oil into your routine, start with a small amount, perhaps a pea-sized drop. Use it on areas you're most comfortable with, such as your eyebrows, feet, or cuticles. You'll gradually get used to the texture and how it feels on your skin. Remember, the heavy, sticky consistency might feel unusual at first, but after a few applications, you'll start to appreciate the luxurious, nourishing quality unique to castor oil.

  2. Massage it In To Areas Your Comfortable With
    Gently massage the castor oil into your skin, focusing on any problem areas. Set aside some time to do this mindfully, so you can really connect with your body and the oil. Massage helps your skin absorb the beneficial fatty acids in castor oil. Our tip is to do two rounds of massage: apply, massage gently, and then, after about 15 minutes, massage again. This second round will lead to deeper absorption, and your skin won't feel as sticky

  3. Listen to Your Body & Make Space To Nourish Yourself
    Your skin is an intelligent organ that provides feedback on the rest of your body. We believe that using castor oil is more than just a beauty routine – it's a lifestyle that can guide you back to your true, balanced nature. Be willing to embark on this journey of re-learning, reconnecting, and nourishing your body. We recommend daily use for at least 3 months, and we're confident you'll love it just as much as we do. However, if your skin is not responding well, take care and discontinue use.

  4. Embrace the Journey to Holistic Beauty & Let Your Body Detoxify
    As you start using castor oil and incorporating more natural products, you might find that your body begins to detoxify heavy metals and plastics, which can be released through your skin. Some people may think the Castor Oil is causing the issue, but it's important to remember that this oil is completely natural and is helping your body return to its baseline. Embrace the journey, knowing that these temporary adjustments are a sign that the castor oil is doing its work to bring your body back into balance.

  5. Be Patient and Persistent
    Achieving your desired results with castor oil may take time and experimentation. Stick with it, and you'll soon discover the perfect routine for your skin's needs.
