    Castor oil can help people reduce the discomfort caused by infections and inflammation. So, it can help people cure blepharitis. Even though castor oil is commonly used as condiment, there are still some people use it directly to eyes. It's harmless, however, it may cause other eye problems because our eyes can't fully absorb it. Add castor oil in our daily meal can make us healthier by promoting our blood circulation, improving digestive system, and smoothing our skin.
