As an unsaturated fatty acid, the ricinoleic acid found in castor oil has many healing abilities, including:

One of the main reasons castor oil has strong immune-boosting effects is because it supports the body’s lymphatic system. The most important role of the lymphatic system, which extends throughout the body in small tubular structures, is that it absorbs and removes excess fluids, proteins and waste materials from our cells.
