Jamaican Black Castor Oil


IMG_5279Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO) is a perfect ingredient in hair care products. Castor oil has been used for thousands of years and a native of Africa. During the slave trade, castor beans were brought to Jamaica where black castor oil originated.

JBCO  is from the same castor bean as castor oil but the beans have been roasted before extracting the oil. First, the beans are roasted and ground and then boiled in water to extract the oil. The color can range from light brown to dark brown. The oil includes some of the ash considered to be part of the healing properties and creates the smoky scent. JBCO has been used for hundreds of years as a traditional healing agent.


JBCO has been traditionally used to stimulate hair follicles and promote hair growth. Castor oil pulls out and that is why castor oil packs are known as a healing remedy for many years. JBCO is said to pull toxins from the scalp.

I use JBCO in my Ajia Destiny, Coconut Dream  and Aleah Destiny Hair & Body Butters because it promotes hair growth, especially for balding and fading sides due to previous perms used on the hair .
