Today, I purchased two small bottles of castor oil and unbleached flannel. I heated the castor oil in a double boiler for two minutes and then soaked the flannel in it. I drained the excess and put the flannel on my abdomen. I placed it under my breasts and all the way down to my groin. I made sure I cut a piece of flannel the size of a pillow case so that it covers my sides.
I laid on an old towel and placed a heating pad, wrapped in a hand towel, on top of the flannel and left it on for an hour. It was very soothing and I felt HOT ! My forehead had a little sweat on it.
I will do this every evening.
