Castor oil is a very thick oil and is often mixed with another carrier oil such as almond or coconut. Castor oil is very hydrating and moisturizing for the skin and has been used for such skin conditions as psoriasis. It even has some antimicrobial and anti bacterial properties that may be helpful in reducing acne. Castor oil can stimulate tissue growth and can be used on wounds to create a moist and protective layer that helps promote healing and keeps sores from drying out. Castor oil is also used for keeping hair soft and hydrated and may help reduce dandruff symptoms. Studies have shown that castor oil applied topically reduces inflammation and can even help relieve pain. One study found that castor oil, because of its anti-inflammatory properties, effectively relieves arthritis symptoms. Another study found an increase in T cells over a seven hour period after the application of castor oil. Castor oil for internal use has both strong advocates and equally strong opponents. That is likely because the castor bean contains both healing properties and properties that are strong to the point of being destructive.

About Us

Melanie’s Health & Nutrition really began with Auminay Naturals which was formerly SkinTastic Creations. This product line took root over twenty years ago as Melanie faced cancer. After becoming aware of alternative therapies she worked to change to a healthier lifestyle and learn about herbs. She developed what is now the Auminay Naturals product line by eventually learning to infuse these herbs into products that used natural ingredients to provide skin care products for a healthier lifestyle. In 2017, as a newly certified Master Herbalist, Melanie opened Melanie’s Health & Nutrition to provide a resource for the Tooele community. The Auminay products are now made in the back section of the store. Melanie and her staff love to serve the community and provide opportunities for learning, as well as products that empower people to be healthier.
