Reasons To Stock Up On Castor Oil

castor oil

Castor oil is one of the most incredible multi-use survival tools out there. This is a shame, since castor oil was a huge blessing on homesteads over 1o0 years ago. However, now, its multi-use properties have become a distant memory.

Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be this way. Castor oil is making a comeback as more and more preppers revel in its incredible uses. And after reading this article, you will too!

When SHTF, you’ll be extremely glad to know about these…

Reasons To Stock Up On Castor Oil

Soothe The Pain

Pain from inflammation can really deter progress in a survival situation. Whether you’re bugging out or bugging in, you can only move so fast for so long when you’re suffering from inflammation. However, you can use castor oil to help ease the pain.

One way to do this is to create a poultice out of castor oil and herbs. By rubbing the mixture onto aching joints, this can provide soothing relief to the pain. The sufferer can also consume a tablespoon of castor oil to help ease the inflammation.

You can also use saran wrap, castor oil and cloth to help bring relief to joints. Watch the video below to see this process in action:

Soothe Aching Feet

Survival situations can be extremely hard on the body. And few body parts take a beating quite like your feet do.

Thankfully, castor oil can help soothe the pain. Simply pour a bit of castor oil onto your hand, and rub it between your palms. Then apply the oil onto the areas of your feet that are aching. Keep in mind you can also apply castor oil to your feet throughout the day for 24/7 relief.

Treat Hemorrhoids

Few things are more painful than hemorrhoids, and survival situations can make this ailment a lot worse. Thankfully, you can treat external hemorrhoids with the use of castor oil.  Simply take a cotton ball and pour the oil onto it. Then apply the oil to the affected area, and leave it there for about 20 minutes. Apply a few times a day for some much-needed relief.

Save Your Survival Garden

It probably comes as no surprise that castor oil has a very pungent aroma. Thankfully, many garden-ruining pests (like moles) hate the smell, and refuse to live near it.

Combine 2 gallons of water with 1/2 cup castor oil in a bucket. Sprinkle the mixture onto your garden’s soil, and laugh as these garden annoyances quickly disappear.

Better yet, ferns and other plants respond positively to castor oil. In fact, many become more green and lush as a result!

Fight Disease

Sickness is a real killer in an SHTF event. That’s why it’s best to do everything you can to prevent getting sick. One of the best ways to do this is to rub castor oil directly onto your skin every single day. Studies have shown this helps increase white blood cell count as much as 20 percent!

If you can imagine, castor oil has even MORE uses that can help you out in a survival situation! Here’s a few more from Survivopedia:

Skin Care

We’ll start with this one because, in addition to keeping your skin soft and youthful, it’s also used to ease the pain of severely dried and cracked skin and lips. In a survival situation, this is a condition that can quickly lead to gangrene, so it’s a big deal.

Castor oil is also a good base ingredient for soaps, lotions, and cosmetics because of its hydrating properties. It has omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids, both of which are often used to promote healthy hair, skin, and nail growth. Some claim that it has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties that can help get rid dandruff and possibly athlete’s foot.

It has been shown to have analgesic properties, so it’s good to treat sunburn, rashes, bug bites and other minor skin conditions. It’ also used to treat ringworm. Just rub it directly on the skin.

Finally, the anti-inflammatory properties are great for treating cystic acne. The best thing is that it works fairly quickly. Swab it onto your clean face at night and you should notice improvement by morning.

Digestive Issues and Parasites

This is one of the most commonly-known uses for castor oil. It helps your bowels move. Be careful that you don’t use too much because it works remarkably well for this condition. You don’t want to become dehydrated, so start with a tablespoon and give it a few hours. Take more if needed.

If you want to just “take your medicine” and get it over with, just swallow it straight. If not, you can mix it with juice or a food. Apple juice would be good, because it also helps relieve constipation.

Castor oil is also a common home remedy for intestinal parasites.

Gets Rid of Corns, Moles, and Warts

The fatty acids in the oil are purported to dissolve these conditions. For corns, simply dip a cotton ball in castor oil and tape it over the blemish. Change it out once a day, but in a week, the corn will be gone. For moles and warts, add a bit of baking soda to the cotton ball, too. It may take a couple of weeks for this method to work. You can also try just dabbing it on regularly.

Lubricate Just About Anything

Because of its viscosity, castor oil doesn’t freeze, so it’s great to use to lubricate hinges, scissors, meat grinders, motor parts, and anything else that gets sticky.

Treat Infected Cuts or Rashes

The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties may be helpful in healing a mild infection. Just dab it on with a cotton swab or dribble it directly onto the wound a few times daily until the infection heals. There are also many herbs that you can add to it to help even more.

Pilonidal Cysts

I’ve read several testaments where people swear that a gauze coated in castor oil works to get rid of the pain and inflammation of pilonidal cysts. It may also help draw out the infection so that the cyst opens, drains, and can heal. Lay the gauze over the cysts, then place a heating pad over it and keep it there for an hour. People reported tremendous improvement just after the first treatment or two.

There are many uses for castor oil – these are just a few of the big ones. I’ve combined several of them under the skin care and digestive issues section because there are so many different uses for it for those particular areas.

Hunter Biden Caught RED HANDED Lying Under Oath

washington-dc-usa-02282024-hunter-biden

House Republicans have detonated a political bombshell, exposing the brazen corruption and arrogance of the Biden family. They have unveiled indisputable evidence proving that Hunter Biden lied under oath multiple times during his congressional deposition earlier this year. This scandal epitomizes the Biden Administration’s systemic corruption and disregard for the rule of law.

The House Ways & Means Committee convened a crucial session on Wednesday to discuss documents protected under IRS code 6103, a section of the tax code designed to keep sensitive information confidential. The committee’s decision to release this material, despite the severe legal ramifications, underscores the gravity and urgency of the situation.

“Hunter Biden has once again demonstrated his belief that there are two systems of justice in this country – one for his privileged family and one for everyone else,” House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith thundered to Fox News Digital. “Not only did Hunter Biden brazenly refuse to comply with his initial subpoena until threatened with criminal contempt, but he also had the audacity to lie before Congress. This investigation and the documents released today are not about a personal vendetta against Hunter Biden; they are about ensuring the equal application of the law in a system that his family seems to believe they are above.”

Smith revealed that the documents show Hunter Biden lied at least three times during his deposition. “Lying during sworn testimony is a felony offense that the Department of Justice has prosecuted numerous individuals for in recent years, and the American people demand the same accountability for the son of the President of the United States,” Smith declared. “Hunter Biden’s lies under oath and obstruction of a congressional investigation into his family’s blatant corruption cast a shadow over his entire testimony. The newly released evidence confirms, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the only witnesses who can be trusted to tell the truth in this investigation are the IRS whistleblowers.”

The committee asserts that Hunter Biden mischaracterized his role at his firm, Rosemont Seneca, and actually controlled bank accounts he denied having under oath. Emails between Hunter Biden and his former associate Devon Archer show he helped a man named Miguel Aleman with visa documents, directly contradicting his testimony. Furthermore, WhatsApp records reveal that Hunter Biden only spoke with one Zhao — Henry Zhao of Chinese energy firm CEFC — debunking his claim of a mistaken identity due to intoxication.

In one explosive WhatsApp message, Hunter Biden blatantly leveraged his father’s position, telling a Chinese business associate from CEFC that he and his father would ensure “you will regret not following my direction.” Hunter Biden demanded a $10 million wire for his joint venture with CEFC, SinoHawk Holdings.

“I am sitting here with my father, and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled,” Hunter Biden told Henry Zhao, the director of Chinese asset management firm Harvest Fund Management. “And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge, you will regret not following my direction.” Zhao responded, “CEFC is willing to cooperate with the family.”

Hunter Biden has been charged in two separate jurisdictions stemming from Special Counsel David Weiss’ years-long investigation into him. He pleaded not guilty to federal gun charges in U.S. District Court for Delaware and federal tax charges in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The charges include making false statements during the purchase of a firearm, related to information required to be kept by a licensed firearm dealer, and possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance.

IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler approached Congress, alleging that prosecutorial decisions in the federal investigation into the president’s son were influenced by politics. They claimed Weiss allowed the statute of limitations to expire for tax charges against Hunter Biden from 2014 and 2015 in D.C., and Hunter Biden should have been charged with tax evasion for 2014 and for filing false tax returns for 2018 and 2019, particularly concerning income from Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings. Fox News Digital reported in December 2020 that Hunter Biden failed to report “approximately $400,000” in income from his position on Burisma’s board in 2014.

The American public is fed up with a system rigged in favor of the powerful and well-connected. This is a direct assault on the integrity of our justice system. The time for accountability is now. Hunter Biden and his family’s blatant disregard for the law cannot be tolerated any longer. The American people demand justice.

Biden’s Reckless Election Stunt: Draining Strategic Reserves to Lower Gas Prices

male-worker-inspection-record-drum-oil

In a desperate and ill-advised move, the Biden administration announced on Tuesday that it is releasing 1 million barrels of gasoline from a Northeast reserve established after Superstorm Sandy, ostensibly to lower prices at the pump this summer. This blatant attempt to manipulate gas prices ahead of the election underscores the administration’s willingness to jeopardize national security for political gain.

The gasoline will be sold from storage sites in New Jersey and Maine in increments of 100,000 barrels, creating a competitive bidding process to ensure it reaches local retailers ahead of the July 4 holiday. The Energy Department claims this will help “lower costs for American families and consumers,” but the real intention is clear: to curry favor with voters by artificially lowering gas prices.

The release follows a congressional mandate to sell off the 10-year-old Northeast reserve and close it. This reserve, established under President Obama, has never been used and costs about $19 million a year to maintain. Its sale, which provides only minimal relief during a severe shortage, highlights the administration’s short-sightedness and disregard for strategic planning.

Gasoline prices average about $3.60 per gallon nationwide, up 6 cents from a year ago, according to AAA. Tapping into the gasoline reserves is one of the few actions a president can take to control inflation, a major election year liability for the party in power.

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm stated that the Biden administration is “laser-focused on lowering prices at the pump for American families.” However, this short-term solution ignores the primary purpose of strategic reserves: to provide emergency relief in times of severe national crises, not to manipulate market prices for political benefit.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre touted this release as part of Biden’s efforts to lower gas and energy costs, including historic releases from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) and investments in clean energy. Yet, Biden’s previous decision to drain the SPR in 2022, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, already pushed the stockpile to perilously low levels not seen since the 1980s. This reckless depletion of a critical national security asset for short-term political gain drew sharp criticism from Republicans.

Despite attempts to refill the SPR, it still stands at over 367 million barrels, significantly lower than pre-Russia-Ukraine war levels. This makes the U.S. vulnerable in the event of a true energy emergency, as the SPR is intended to be the nation’s emergency oil supply, not a tool for electioneering.

The release of the 42-million-gallon Northeast reserve, which must be transferred or delivered by June 30, is a misguided strategy that offers minimal impact on gasoline prices nationally. As analyst Patrick De Haan from GasBuddy points out, the reserve amounts to just 2.7 hours of total U.S. gasoline consumption, providing negligible relief.

This ill-conceived plan not only undermines the strategic purpose of the reserve but also sets a dangerous precedent of using emergency resources for political maneuvering. Biden’s actions highlight a disturbing trend of prioritizing political optics over national security and long-term stability.

Biden Authorized “Deadly Force” In Mar-a-Lago Raid

bedminster-nj-august-14-2022-demonstrators

In an alarming display of federal overreach and political maneuvering, it has been revealed that Joe Biden’s administration was prepared to have his main political rival, Donald Trump, and his family killed as part of a dramatic publicity stunt.

On Tuesday, Judge Aileen Cannon unsealed a series of motions related to Jack Smith’s controversial classified documents case against Trump. Among the shocking revelations was the fact that Biden’s FBI authorized the use of deadly force during their raid on Mar-a-Lago in August 2022.

This brazen action by armed FBI agents, ready to confront Trump, demonstrates the extreme lengths to which Biden’s administration is willing to go. The filing stated: “Should FPOTUS [Trump] arrive at MAL [Mar-a-Lago], FBI MM EM and OSCs will be prepared to engage with FPOTUS and USSS Security Team.” Furthermore, it added, “Should USSS provide resistance or interfere with FBI timeline or accesses, FBI MM EM will engage with [redacted] and [redacted] will engage with USSS POC’s per existing liaison relationships.”

A chilling screenshot of the deadly force instructions outlined the conditions under which DOJ law enforcement officers could use deadly force: only when necessary, when the officer has a reasonable belief that the subject poses an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury.

This unprecedented move comes after Biden paved the way for his Justice Department to arrest his political opponent by retroactively revoking Trump’s executive privilege. This revocation facilitated the subpoenaing of Trump, which in turn allowed the Justice Department to charge him with federal crimes.

Following the subpoena, federal agents arrived at Mar-a-Lago, retrieving documents and instructing the former president to add an extra lock to his storage locker. However, two months later, the FBI conducted a full-scale raid on Mar-a-Lago, ransacking Trump’s belongings without allowing his lawyers to be present.

The situation escalated when, in November 2022, Jack Smith was appointed special counsel to investigate the documents at Trump’s Florida residence. By June 2023, Trump faced an indictment on 37 counts related to Smith’s classified documents case, including charges of willful retention, conspiracy to obstruct justice, and making false statements.

This entire episode underscores the alarming extent of Biden’s politicization of the Justice Department and the dangerous precedent it sets for using federal power to target political opponents.
