Here are step-by-step directions for how to make and use castor oil packs for liver detoxification and PMS. Most women don’t realize that PMS occurs because the liver is not detoxing hormones efficiently, therefore, working with the liver is beneficial for PMS symptoms.

How to Make & Use Castor Oil Packs for Liver Detox & PMS
Click the PLAY button below to listen to my step-by-step directions for making and using a castor oil pack.
I highly recommend you only use these brands; I do not trust other brands because they are not clean and many brands can be toxic, so I suggest you order these brands from the links below or at your local health food store.
What are the benefits of using Castor Oil Packs?
Here are a few ways that castor oil packs can benefit you. I personally do a castor oil pack a few nights a week before bed and it’s incredibly relaxing.
- Improves digestion, assimilation and proper elimination (going to the bathroom)
- Improves hormonal balance (PMS for women).
- Detoxifies your organs, tissues, and joints.
- Helps reduce inflammation and pain.
- Supports and reduces stiffness and arthritis.
- Stimulates the liver, lymphatic system, and the immune system
Castor Oil Packs for Liver Detox
You can place the castor oil packs in many different places on your body but if you are focused on liver detoxification, I suggest you place the pack on your liver, which is located directly under your right ribcage. I usually lay down in my bed with a towel under me so that the oily flannel doesn’t accidentally get on my sheets. Then, I place another towel over the castor oil pack before I place the heating pad on top. The full directions are in my audio segment above.
Castor Oil Packs for PMS
I also use castor oil packs for hormone balance. DO NOT USE CASTOR OIL PACKS WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR PERIOD. That is a no-no, ladies. Only use these packs before or after your period. Place the castor oil pack on top of your ovaries on your lower abdomen right where your underwear ends. I do the same thing with a towel and the heating pad as mentioned above as well as in the audio.
Castor oil packs have been incredibly helpful for me and for many of my clients. I’ve heard such great feedback from so many people such as seeing their skin clear up and have a glowy, youthful look as well as digestive improvement, less hormonal imbalances and so much more. Let me know if you try it and how you like it.
All of the products I suggest are linked above for you. I highly suggest you use those brands because they are the only ones that I trust.
Share your thoughts
Will you feel any sensations during or after liver oil packing? Doing my firs tonight just want to be prepared.
Hi Marie! You might feel more relaxed in your body, but you shouldn’t feel any strong or negative sensations. Hope you enjoy it!
Hi Amie, for the liver detox, do you place the pack on your back and lay on it, or do you place in under your right side ribcage in the front? Thanks!
Hi Allison! For liver detox, I recommend placing it on your belly just under your right ribcage.
Do you think if I put the pack on my liver and then went in the infrared sauna for 30 mins that would be ok? Or do I have to have a heating pad directly on it ?
Hi Kirsten! We cannot give out medical advice for individuals since we are all so different and that may be way too much for your liver to handle. Please work with your doctor. Thank you!
Why not DURING period to reduce pain? Just curious:)
Hi Sofiya! We don’t recommend using castor oil packs while you’re on your period; it can increase your flow.
So, the liver packs shouldn’t be done while menstruating either..? Just checking…
Hi Deb, that’s right. You should use them before or after your period.
Yeah! Thanks for this post. I was familiar with the idea of castor oil packs but needed more info when I stumbled upon your site! I am very grateful.
So happy that you found this information on castor oil pack helpful. Have a lovely day.
Amie, I’m doing a detox for the month of June and am not between your site and Walter Last’s, The Natural Way to Heal. Are you laying on the castor oil pack or is it laying on your belly? Thank you, Karen
It’s laying on my belly! xx
How long do you place the packet on there for? ANd how often do u recommend doing it?
At least 30 minutes; you can do it anytime. A few times a week is great but just not when you have your period! xx
Hi Amy, you mentioned to check medications. I’m currently in hormone therapy, will this have a negative effect?
You’ll have to check with your doctor. One thing about hormone therapy is that you have to make sure the synthetic hormones are detoxing from your body. Read my services page to read what happened to be. Just make sure you are VERY closely monitored on it. Much love, xx
I cannot thank you enough for this!! I’ve been struggling with detoxing my liver for months.. The supplements I’ve been taking (in addition to my regular clean diet) have been helping, but it seems like I can’t get on top of it..I’ve been having epic PMS (going through it right now actually), so I’m PSYCHED to have another tool. I’m also super pumped this isn’t another thing I need to ingest, as I’m so tired of taking supplements with every meal, lol! Thank you for all the time and effort you put into learning these things and for sharing them with your following. I’m making my castor oil and flannel purchases now – will let you know how it goes!
SO great to hear from you! Yes, the supplements didn’t do it for me. Did you also see my post on an organic coffee enema? I suggest doing both together. I’ve realized that there are multiple layers of the liver and I had to do a ton of things to really detox the entire liver. Let me know how it goes.
