Yes, you can use your Castorvida castor oil pack if you have your
period. There is a lot of conflicting information regarding using castor oil packs when you have your period. Our advice is if your flow is lighter it is absolutely fine to use your pack. However, if you have a heavier flow, using a castor oil pack during your period may increase the flow. In this case we would recommend wearing your pack in the run up to and after your period for three consecutive months. This is likely to regulate your flow, help balance your hormones and reduce any pain associated with your period.
