Castor oil has miraclous powers according to Ayurveda. It is known as Arand. Botanical name is Ricinus Communis.
The leaves around the castor burr are used as treatment for pain of swollen ankles;arthritis. The slightly heated leaves are tied around the affected ankle and left over night to heal. Any pain releiving balm can be used on the affected part and then the leaves tied.
