Grandma’s castor oil in handmade soap can help ease pain

By Mary Rose Roberts
It’s like walking through an outdoor classroom when I visit the local farmer’s market. This week, I was introduced to The Natural Way, a homemade soap brand that is made up of essential healing oils. When I approached the stand, a young woman was telling the vendor that she had multiple sclerosis, had purchased the muscle and joint pain soap and it helped her pain. She was back for another bar.
When she walked away, the vendor—Ms. Eftink—glowed.
“That’s what makes me feel good about making the soaps,” Eftink said to me with an ear-to-ear grin, “that it has helped someone.”
So I purchased the same bar because of arthritis in my hands. The soap is 100% vegetable-based, free of artificial fragrances and dyes and does not contain any animal or petroleum-based products. For pain, the formula includes castor oil, which is extracted from castor seeds and used for centuries as an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant remedy for therapeutic benefits. The muscle and joint pain soap had a medicinal smell but was not offensive. After a week of using it, I could tell it helped somewhat with my symptoms compared to other soaps I’ve tried. The bar lasted about two weeks and retails around $5.
