Love the oil, just what I needed. I ordered quite a few things and all were nicely shipped. Confused though why things were sealed with tape, shea, and bigger EO's but these were not. Seems like the oils would be more prone to leakage than anything else. This item is high quality and love love the price! Other than lack of sealing on the lids, loved it.
I am buying this to control Moles. Nothing else works that I have been told, the mole vibrators, chewing gum (esp. juicy fruit), etc. Here is a recipe for spraying mole repelent: Moles: One deterent that does work is to mix 1 pint of Castor Oil in a 1 quart hose end sprayer, filling the sprayer with water after adding the Castor Oil, and spraying that over 2,500 square feet and then watering it in well. The mixes sold in stores will not be effective because they contain less than 1 pint of Castor Oil and tell you to cover much more territory and that simply is not effective. Here are more comments and another recipe: To be effective, the castor oil product must be thoroughly watered into the lawn. Irrigate the area to be treated with 1/2 inch of water before applying the repellent solution and follow with 1 inch or more of water. Areas that receive extensive irrigation will quickly lose the repellent to leaching. For best results, spray the entire area that is to be protected. Moles will burrow under a perimeter treatment. Homeowners can prepare their own repellent concentrate by mixing 6 ounces of 100 percent unrefined castor oil (refined is suitable, but expensive) with 2 tablespoons of liquid detergent in 1 gallon of water. This mixture, like the commercial product, is diluted at a rate of 1 ounce per gallon of water and applied liberally with a sprayer (covers about 300 square feet). Preliminary studies have shown that granular materials containing castor oil have been less effective than liquid repellent

Castor Oil is cold pressed from castor beans, from which a thick greenish oil is obtained. Castor oil can be used in a variety of applications, ranging from a pest repellent to applications in the automotive industry or even medical applications. Internally it is taken for constipation, headaches, colds and asthma amongst other ailments. Used extensively in soaps and cosmetics, castor oil is used in lip balms, lotions, and creams. It is renowned for its skin softening and humectant properties. It helps to heal swollen skin, reduce dryness and is absorbed slowly into the skin.
