“luil maskriti”
[plant: "Maskreti (maskriti)" , ricinus communis (of the family “Euphorbiaceae”)

It can also be used for MASSAGE (releasing the muscles)
It can be use with some other ingredients as LAXATIVE (“lòk”)
It can be as “cooking oil” (through extraction first).

From Mazonbel

Can anyone enumerate the different uses for "luil maskriti" in Haiti besides for your hair and for "ralman" (chiropractic-like massage)? Is it used also in Vodou? What is its English name? Is it Castor Oil?

Thank you.
