Great when used in a home castor oil packI used this flannel in a castor oil pack for my abdomen. I applied it to clean skin. I have soaked this flannel with heritage organic castor oil and applied it to my abdomen, wrapping it in clear kitchen wrap. I even applied the disposable heating pads and then secure with a body gauze. I left it on for about 40 minutes and chilled. Afterward, I took the flannel and put it in a mason jar and stored it in the refrigerator for later use. Rate this comment if you found the information useful :)
I have ordered this wool flannel together with the castor oil from the same brand since I saw a lot of people recommending the quality of this flannel. It's amazing, very soft to the touch, and can be washed and used over and over. It's big in size, so I cut it into 4 equal pieces. I usually use castor oil packs for period pain and pain caused by fibrocystic breast disease. I rub the castor oil on the desired area using clean hands, then put the wool flannel on top of the oil, and finally apply a hot water bag (Some people cover the wool flannel with saran wrap before applying the hot water bag but I personally don't do that). It feels sooo good to use the castor oil packs, it helps alleviate a lot of the pain. Note: make sure the water bag is not very hot so you don't end up burning your skin.
This wool flannel is SO soft, non bleached/no nasties and is large enough which means it can be cut into smaller sizes for more use. They wash really well too! I got it for castor oil packs specifically for my uterus, digestion and liver. I bought the corresponding organic castor oil from Heritage Store, it is a really superior, high quality product. It’s hard to believe applying castor oil, a wool flannel and a heat pack/hot water bottle can help uterus pain and digestion but it miraculously does! Highly recommend.
