It will however, make you race to find the HongNam

Yes, if you drink the oil..as a kid i remember it was the goods for constipation.

One treatment was all it took..i never ever told my parents again if i was constipated..foul tasting stuff!

 

The exhaust fumes smell from race vehicles on the other hand is a real treat.

They thought it is Castrol oil and not Castor oil.

Unlikely that a pharmacist or health food store would think one was asking for motor oil?

Castrol oil is an engine oil used for motorbikes,

Castor oil is/was also used in motorcycles. One can still buy it in small motorcycle parts stores. It comes in 60ml bottles. I wouldn't consume it though.

 

Just to muddy the waters! Castrol A747 is a CASTOR/SYNTHETIC engine oil.

 

OP take a photograph with you.

This shop is quite expensive. They sell one 450 ml bottle for around 450 baht.

 

I managed to find the same quantity at a cheaper price around 200 baht in a shop around warorot market.

 

It's a huge two shops lot that sells all types of Chinese medicines and herbs.

 

Pharma Choice in the city center also has it but in a smaller bottle of 60 ml which cost 28 baht.

Sounds as if some smart Aleck just made a fool of himself.
 
Love it.

And after you read facts above stating you can buy castor oil in motor cycle shops?

I don't see any reference that Castor oil is sold in the average motor cycle shop, and a synthetic based CASTER oil, is definitely not the same as CASTOR oil derived from plants.

Try the pharmacy in front of Mc Cormick hospital. Beware that if you are using it as laxative can gives you side effect, as is a mild poison to the body

I'm using it as external lotion on the small lipomas on my body. I heard it can reduce the size but don't know whether it really works.

 

Do you have any other recommendations for removing lipomas excluding surgery?

Oh yes it is. Mostly found in Thailand in little mom and pop type motorcycle spares shops. Also available in radio control aircraft/boat shops but in larger containers .

 

Interestingly the Safety sheet mentions "Defatting to the skin"

What is mentioned  in that post is that Castrol a747 is available.

 

Castrol A747 is a CASTOR/SYNTHETIC engine oil specifically designed for use in highly stressed, high performance, 2-stroke engines using premixed fuels

 

Castor oil is a vegetable oil obtained by pressing the seeds of the castor oil plant (Ricinus communis).[1] The common name "castor oil", from which the plant gets its name, probably comes from its use as a replacement for castoreum, a perfume base made from the dried perineal glands of the beaver

 

I didn't know they derived semi synthetic oils from plants these days.
