"Natural healing" is a fascinating area but plenty of these people are simply offering worthless remedies that may even be cruel pranks.

I use castor oil for my hair beard. ..is it 100% safe? Is there any minimal percentage that it might still contain the deadly ricin?

No: How many times have you heard of people dying of ingesting castor oil. Now it could be a vast coverup but think about it.
