Q. Whenever my children hurt themselves, the first thing I reached for was the castor oil. My mother-in-law’s uncle was a boxer and always used castor oil after a boxing match to prevent hematomas and bruising. It works like a charm. It has been passed down as a remedy in my family for many years.
A. Thanks for sharing your family remedy. We have heard from others that applying castor oil after a bump can often avert a bruise.
