Huille Maskreti: The Traditional Castor Oil of Haiti

Huille Maskreti is a distinctive, Haitian variety of castor oil that is extracted from the castor bean. The oil is processed by first toasting and crushing the castor beans, followed by boiling the crushed beans in water to extract the oil.

While Huille Maskreti is very similar to Jamaican Black Castor Oil – in the way it is extracted and its properties; it known to have a toastier scent, possibly because the beans are toasted for a longer period of time.

Some of the oil’s properties:

  • Stimulates hair follicles for regrowth
  • Contributes to the maintenance of healthy, growing hair.
  • Effective as a daily or hot oil hair treatment.
  • Used as a natural moisturizer and treatment for the skin.
