While castor oil can technically induce labor, it isn't recommended. Castor oil can cause dehydration and other unpleasant side effects, such as nausea and vomiting.

NO you are supposed to drink Castro oil to induce labor because it is a laxative that is supposed to make your muscles contract and put you into labor, but it doesn't work and neither does drinking kayro syrup, you will just be on the toilet for the next two days. paraffin is wax not oil. You could stimulate your nipples with ice to release oxytoxin in your body which is the hormone that causes labor. Also having an oragasm releases those chemicals.
