Hey Ritika check these articles..

Hey Ritika I don't know about this Castor oil massage being cure for constipation but yes if you want you can apply, no harm in it. The best remedy I follow during my days was drinking warm milk mixed with 1 table 🥄 of gulkand. Also include lot fruits and vegetables in your diet.
