How Castor Oil Packs May Help Support Menopause Sleep Issues
In this podcast you will learn how Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs may help support menopause sleep issues.Menopause revolves around the intricate dance of hormones, with estrogen and progesterone as the main performers. As their levels shift, these reproductive key players send waves through your body, ushering in a mix of anticipated and unforeseen changes.From hot flashes and mood swings, to a shift in your sleep patterns, menopause introduces a cast of characters that can make this journey both intriguing and challenging.Entering menopause often brings more sleep troubles for women. Insomnia, or difficulty sleeping, is a common complaint among menopausal women. According to the 3-P Model (pathogenic model), various factors like previous struggles with insomnia and the natural aging process can heighten the chances of experiencing sleep issues during menopause. Additionally, hormonal changes and symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, overall health issues, pain, other sleep problems, and changes in daily rhythms can contribute to insomnia during this phase.Imagine your nightly routine feeling like a warm hug for your body, similar to snuggling under your favorite cozy blanket. As you ease into the evening, slipping under the covers becomes a comforting self-care routine with your Castor Oil Pack. Studies have shown that there’s a connection between oxytocin and pleasant human touch via stimulating c-afferent nerves (receptors that respond to light touch).So, it could be said that when a soft Castor Oil Pack is wrapped around you, c-afferent nerves may be stimulated, releasing oxytocin, therefore helping you enter the ‘rest and digest’ state.Navigating insomnia during menopause can be a challenging task, but incorporating simple and natural self-care practices can help make a difference.When you embrace the possible soothing benefits of Castor Oil for menopause sleep issues and Castor Oil Packs, you’re not only providing yourself with potential physical relief, but also creating a comforting routine to help ease your mind and body.Follow us at @queenofthethrones and discover how Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs can help to support your health and beauty routines.

How Castor Oil May Help Support Hair Loss Due to Menopause
In this podcast you will learn How Castor Oil May Help Support Hair Loss Due to Menopause. Menopause, a term shrouded in uncertainty, marks the end of a woman's reproductive years—the finale of the menstrual cycle. From hot flashes and mood swings to shifts in sleep patterns, menopause introduces an array of bodily changes, making the journey both unpredictable and challenging, especially when it comes to your hair.As estrogen levels decline during menopause, the delicate balance in hormonal fluctuations can impact various aspects of our well-being, including hair health. Estrogen plays an important role in maintaining the hair growth cycle, and when it begins to decline, it can lead to a condition known as female pattern hair loss.As you incorporate Castor Oil into your hair care routine, envision it not as a solution to dryness, texture, breakage etc., but as a daily affirmation of self-compassion and self-care.Afterall, the act of massaging Castor Oil into your scalp can become a moment of connection with your own body, a gesture of kindness to the strands that have accompanied you through countless experiences.So, as you navigate the intricacies of menopause and menopause hair loss, remember that embracing the physical changes, including those in your hair, is a testament to the strength and beauty within every woman.Follow us at @queenofthethrones and discover how Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs can help to support your health and beauty routines.

Does the Moon make your Hormones go Crazy?
Everything is interconnected and the moon is controlling much more than you think. Makes sense, agreed? You’re in the right place because in this podcast we’re going to talk about how the moon cycles may impact your hormones and help you discover the pros and cons of seed cycling for hormone imbalance.The traditional seed cycling protocol alternates what seeds to eat at different times of the month according to your hormones and the moon: flax, pumpkin, sesame and sunflower seeds.One downfall for many women with hormonal problems is that these seeds can cause digestive distress when repeatedly consumed, creating a leaky gut or aggravating a pre-existing condition.Additionally, it can become a hassle preparing the seeds, coordinating when to eat each kind, and finding new recipes to keep things exciting. Many often start this protocol with the best of intentions but give up shortly after starting. Sound familiar?“Single” Seed Cycling, on the other hand, soothes digestive distress and is simply less hassle, by using Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs for Liver , instead of eating seeds.“Single” Seed Cycling is supportive for your well-being, working from the outside in.Therefore, it’s a great alternative if you’re tired of taking so many supplements and would rather do a self-care practice as easy as wearing a Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Pack for Liver or using the Queen of the Thrones® Hormone Balance & Detox Kit, on a different part of the body, at different times of the month according to the moon cycles.Plus, there’s an additional bonus with “Single” Seed Cycling with Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs.Follow us at @queenofthethrones and discover how Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs can help to support your health and beauty routines.

What Is Oil Pulling and Why Do It With Castor Oil
Oil pulling is a centuries-old tradition that’s making a modern comeback. This ancient Ayurvedic technique is believed to help detoxify the body and support overall well-being. When you engage in oil pulling, it may activate enzymes in your saliva that are thought to absorb various toxins, including chemical, bacterial, and environmental toxins from the bloodstream. These toxins are then thought to be expelled from the body through the tongue.Castor Oil is a powerhouse of nutrients and has been used for centuries in traditional home remedies, including oil pulling.According to Ayurveda, there's a theory that the tongue is linked to different organs like the kidneys, heart, lungs, small intestine, spine, and more. And the practice of oil pulling is thought to aid in the elimination of toxic heavy metals through saliva. Oil pulling with Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil, that only takes 1-2 minutes! How to do oil pulling at home:Pour 1 tbsp of Queen of the Thrones® Golden Castor Oil onto a spoon.Place the oil in your mouth and swish it around for 1-2 minutes.Spit the frothy, white oil into the trash when finished.Brush teeth and rinse your mouth thoroughly.That’s all there is to it!

Can Castor Oil be used as a natural way to induce labor?
In this podcast you will learn how Castor Oil can be used as a natural way to induce labor. You’ve probably heard of Castor Oil being used to jumpstart labor– something midwives and women have used for centuries to nudge Mother Nature along, but maybe you’re wondering how exactly Castor Oil can support labor, and whether it’s safe?One of the most common uses of Castor Oil is as a laxative. It’s often used topically in the form of a Castor Oil Pack as a gentle way to help relieve constipation and promote bowel movements. In addition to this, Castor Oil has been used to induce labor in pregnant women as it is believed to stimulate the uterus and help with contractions, although its effectiveness is disputed.But the idea was simple: Castor Oil when ingested could stimulate contractions by irritating the bowels, and in turn, causing the uterus to contract. So, despite its off-putting taste and texture, this approach seemed like a beacon of hope for women when labor appears to be dragging its feet.Nowadays if Castor Oil is used orally, your midwife may mix it in a recipe with orange juice, apricot juice, or tea to make it more palatable.Are you a practitioner, health coach or wellness influencer?

What is the Difference Between Cold-Pressed vs Expeller-Pressed Castor Oil
Dec 28 2023
What is the Difference Between Cold-Pressed vs Expeller-Pressed Castor Oil
In this podcast you will learn with Queen of the Thrones what is the difference between cold-pressed vs expeller-pressed Castor Oil.Expeller-Pressed Oils: The expeller pressing method involves physically pressing castor beans to extract the oils, avoiding the use of chemicals. While this technique employs pressure for oil extraction, the pressure itself can generate temperatures between 140-210°F, so it is not considered a true “cold processed” method.Cold-Pressed Oils: Cold pressing oil, on the other hand, also generates heat, but it does not surpass 122°F during extraction. In this process, the oil is extracted using methods such as bladder pressing (for softer fruits), hydraulic pressing, or low-resistance expeller pressing to ensure the temperature stays below 122°F. Sometimes cold water may be run through the machine to keep temperatures cooler.Castor Oil is rich and viscous. If you’ve used it, you’re familiar with its thick, sticky texture. And while this can make it messy to work with, it also helps protect its nutrients from heat. Castor Oil is considered to have a very high stability level, thanks to the high percentage of ricinoleic acid.Are you a practitioner, health coach or wellness influencer?
