Does Rubbing Castor Oil On Belly To Lose Weight Work?

When it comes to losing weight, you may feel like you’re fighting an uphill battle. However, it is a battle that needs to be done especially if you want to lose weight or meet your fitness goals. 

There are many things that can help you to speed up your rate of weight loss, and one of these is castor oil. This oil can be taken internally and externally in order to target belly fat and help you to get the flat stomach that you desire. We’ll now take a look at exactly how you can use castor oil to help reduce body fat. 

The first method involves creating a castor oil belly wrap in order to focus on abdominal fat. You will need to get three tablespoons of castor oil, plastic wrap, flannel to cover your stomach, hot water bottle and a towel. 

The first thing you need to do is lay down and use the rolled towel behind your back to support it. Then, you pour the castor oil on your stomach and massage it with your fingertips in a circular motion for approximately 10 minutes. 

You should then place the flannel over your stomach and secure it there using the plastic wrap. Lastly, place the hot water bottle on top of your stomach, on top of the wrap and leave this for 10 minutes before you remove everything. It is recommended that you do this regularly in order to see a reduction in your stomach fat.

Another way that you can use castor oil for weight loss is to consume 2 or 3 teaspoons before you eat breakfast. However, this is quite difficult to do, due to the taste. As a result, you can mix it with some juice and then drink the mixture. 

Once you have taken it, you will need to use the toilet shortly after for a bowel movement. Once you take castor oil in this way for at least a week, you will definitely see a reduction in your body weight and belly fat.

 However, it is essential that you don’t take this every day since prolonged use will have many negative health effects such as chronic constipation and even weakening of the colon. 

A next option is to take castor oil with ginger tea. You will need an inch of ginger root that has been crushed, a green tea bag, a cup of water and one tablespoon of castor oil. 

Then, you place the water to boil and once it has boiled, you can add the ginger and allow it to boil for three more minutes. Take off the flame and strain the liquid into a cup and place the teabag and allow it to steep. Remove the tea bag, add the castor oil and drink. 

In closing, we have just looked at a few ways that you can use castor oil to lose weight. However, in addition to using this oil, you should ensure that you’re eating healthy and in a caloric deficit. Exercise is also advisable and you’ll definitely see those extra pounds disappear.
