Hi Everybody, Michelle here. Today I’m going to review the Sky Organics Castor oil. I wanted to review this product because the price of this oil is less than $15 and it is organic. I’m really looking forward to seeing what it can do for me.
First up is the packaging. I was surprised to see a big box containing only this 16 oz. bottle arrive at my doorstep. It was delivered on time, by the way. The box could have fit 3 or 4 more bottles in terms of size and depth. When I opened the box there were several plastic bags filled with air where the bottle of oil was nestled safely on top of them. The air-filled plastic bags were able to cushion the oil so that it does not spill on its way to the customer. I’m liking this type of packaging the more I see it versus bubble wrapping.
I also tried it on my hair and I’m telling you that you don’t need a lot in order to cover your hair with the oil.
The bottle itself is made of amber colored plastic with a cap where you push down on one side and the other side pops up. The one side that pops up has a small opening for the oil to pass through. The packaging is very nice actually. If you’re one of those people who have problems with flip up caps or you don’t like screw top caps, this is a great way to dispense the oil. The bottle is big at 16 oz. If you intend to bring some along while you travel, I suggest you get a smaller glass bottle and transfer some of the oil in it.
How Sky Organics Castor Oil Looks and Feels
The oil does not have any smell and its viscosity is very thick. It feels like lite syrup, but I didn’t put it on my pancakes. The color is almost clear and it absorbed easily onto my skin. I also tried it on my hair and I’m telling you that you don’t need a lot in order to cover your hair with the oil. I used about a quarter sized amount of oil on my shoulder length hair and it immediately made my hair look shiny without feeling weighed down.
I liked that Sky Organics has the foresight to offer DIY recipes for castor oil on their website.
When you have this much Castor Oil available, you get to do so many things with it. I liked that Sky Organics has the foresight to offer DIY recipes for castor oil on their website. They have placed a sign on the bottle saying as much. It’s great that they gave me so many ideas on how to use the oil. There’s this one idea I really loved that I got on their DIY recipes. It was the castor oil coconut hair mask. I know these two products are great for the hair so I’m going to try it out. It promises stronger and more manageable hair and I’m excited to see how it will affect my hair.
Castor oil can also be used to soften your skin and make it smoother than ever. The oil is great for strengthening nails and cuticles too. Women who always use nail art and have their nails manicured requires strong nails. Castor Oil can help you with getting stronger nails and healthier nail growth.

My concern about the product is that it has no indicator that Sky Organics is offering a money-back guarantee if you’re not satisfied with the product. I mean, I was happy with the product but others may not be. It also did not see the USDA Organic Seal on the bottle even if the company says that it is an organic product. Hopefully, this will be remedied soon.
Quick Update: There are some new additions to the castor oil’s packaging. The new bottle contains the USDA seal. Yey! To be certified organic by the UDSA, the ingredients of the product must be 95% organic and its other ingredients are derived organically. I feel much better when I use products with this seal on them. Especially products like castor oil that doesn’t really need synthetic additives.
Sky Organics offers free delivery and free 30 day returns too. I’m not returning my bottle though. I’m keeping it and getting more when I run out. The many ways I use this huge bottle of castor oil makes it a great product to have in any household and with the free delivery, I can send one to all my loved ones easily. I think I’ll send one to my aunt Lily in Chicago for her birthday. I’m sure she’ll love this oil as much as I do.
Final Thoughts on Sky Organics Castor Oil
This bottle of castor oil will last a good while. You can use it for so many things and still have some left. It’s great! I recommend this product for anyone who ever felt like their castor oil bottle is not enough for all their needs. This is a good product at a great price.
