Get that Straightened Out

Women drink Castor Oil not Castrol Oil to induce labor.
Just figured THAT one out.




Castor Oil is from the Castor bean and is used as a food additive. It is an old wives tale that it induces labor. There is no scientific proof of this. (According to Wikipedia.)




Castrol Oil is a brand of industrial and automotive lubricants.
This whole time I thought pregnant ladies were chugging motor oil to make their babies come.

How have I survived this long?

Hahaha! Are you serious??? Hahaha!! I love it! Those castor beans look like little bugs. Art thou considering using the castor oil thing to induce labor, my little lady? :) I've never tried it. I know I would just barf it up.

Patty~ I thought the EXACT same thing when my wife told me about it!
I couldn't believe it...thanks for clarifying!

My wife did the spicy food and long walk to induce her labor...it's worth a try to go early.

LOL!!! That is hilarious! I don't think I ever gave it much thought, but I'm sure I would've thought the same thing:)

Thank you for some other informative web site. Where else could I get that type of information written in such an ideal way? I’ve a challenge that I’m simply now running on, and I’ve been at the look out for such info.
