Commonly Asked Questions

1. Are the Castor Oil Eye Drops organic?

The castor oil used in our eye drops is certified USDA organic; however, Svastha Ayurveda does not currently have a certified organic license for any of their products.

2. How long will the Castor Oil Eye Drops stay fresh?

Due to our small batch sizes, we guarantee complete freshness in our eye drops (and all of our products). As long as the eye drops are kept in a dry and sterile environment, out of the sun, and in stable temperatures under 75 degrees, this oil will stay vital for 1-2 years.

3. Are the Castor Oil Eye Drops sterile?

Yes, the oil we receive comes sterile and we are extremely cautious to sterilize all of our bottles before filling. This is done by first rinsing off any debris on the bottle, followed by a heat-induced sterilization. This not only sterilizes the bottles, it does so without the use of any chemicals thus making it even safer for the eye drops.   

4. Are the Castor Oil Eye Drops cold-pressed?

No, our Castor Oil Eye Drops are expeller pressed. This is a natural, chemical-free way to extract the oil from the castor bean. The typical heat range of this type of extraction is about 140–210 °F (60–99 °C). You can read more on the definition of expeller pressed here.

5. Isn’t cold-pressed castor oil better for the eye drops?

Cold-pressed is often better for fragile and edible oils such as olive oil. This method allows for a higher nutrient quality and a better taste. However, castor oil is much more durable and can take hotter temperatures with less instability. The fact that this castor oil is not taken for its taste or nutrient content, but rather its healing properties, makes it is just as beneficial for the eyes when applied externally.

6. Are the Castor Oil Eye Drops hexane-free?

Yes, they are 100% free of all chemicals including hexane.

7. Are there any other ingredients in the Castor Oil Eye Drops?

No, there are no other ingredients. It simply contains 100% high-quality, organic castor oil.

8. Does the Castor Oil Eye Drops come in a plastic or glass bottle?

Our eye drops always come in a safe and sterile glass bottle.

9. Can the Castor Oil Eye Drops be applied daily?

Generally speaking, yes. This remedy is typically safe and gentle enough for daily use without creating any side effects. It is often recommended to use daily with any severe or chronic issue. Before beginning any eye treatment it is always best to consult with a knowledgeable eye doctor or healthcare practitioner before using.

10. Are the Castor Oil Eye Drops safe to apply after Lasik eye surgery? 

The eye drops should NOT be applied during the healing phase directly after surgery. This can vary with each individual but ideally should be avoided for at least the first month post-surgery. After this period, with your doctor’s consent, it is generally safe and beneficial to use the Castor Oil Eye Drops as needed.

11. Are the Castor Oil Eye Drops safe for those with sensitive eyes?

Generally speaking, yes. As long as you hold no allergy to castor oil, it is not only safe for sensitive eyes, but may counterbalance the redness, itchiness, and dryness that often comes with sensitive eyes. However, everyone reacts differently to herbs, oils and medicines.  If any redness or irritation should occur, the eye drops should be discontinued. 

12. Are the Castor Oil Eye Drops safe for those with red, dry, itchy eyes?

Yes! In fact, this is probably the main reason most individuals use this product—and with very effective results.  However, everyone reacts differently to herbs, oils and medicines.  If any redness or irritation should occur, the eye drops should be discontinued. 

13. Are the Castor Oil Eye Drops safe for those with cataracts or glaucoma?

We are not able to make any claims for curing, treating or preventing any disease.  These eye drops have been traditionally used to support the health of the eyes. It is always best to consult with your eye doctor before using, especially with more severe conditions.

14. Can the Castor Oil Eye Drops help with vision issues?

This is a case-by-case situation. It has been shown to help if the vision issue stems from inflammation, scar tissue, or chronic irritation, as the castor oil is used to combat all of these issues.

15.  Can I use the Castor Oil Eye Drops with other medicated eye drops?

If you are currently using an eye drop* other than the castor oil, it is highly recommended to allow an 8-12 hour gap between applications. Please do not use the Castor Oil Eye Drops with any other drops unless allowing at least 8 hours between applications. Please consult your doctor if there are any concerns. If a negative reaction does occur, discontinue use immediately.

*Never discontinue any prescription eye drops without consulting with your doctor first.

General Directions

Always make sure the eyes are clean, dry, and makeup-free. Tilt the head back slightly and apply 1-2 drops into each eye before bed. For severe issues, this dosage can be applied upon awakening as well.

After application, close the eyes and gently massage on and around the eye. Allow the oil to penetrate and avoid washing the eye. If the outer eyes are too oily, dab with a piece of tissue to remove any excess oil around the eye (optional).

**For dry, itchy, and red eyes, feel free to apply the castor oil eye drops as needed during flare-ups for instant relief.

**For anti-wrinkle treatment, you can avoid placing the drops into the eye (unless otherwise desired) and simply massage several drops around the eye. Do not remove the oil after application, and allow it to penetrate completely. Apply each night before bed.
