castor oil?

Has anyone here tried it? I've heard pros and cons. I'm overdue and ready but my family has a history of not dilating. As of Thursday I'm still just a fingertip and desperate to get her out before Christmas!

No success for me :/ I tried this, oj and milk mixture, sex, breast pumping! I just had a membrane sweep this morning I'm hoping he comes out tomorrow!

I'm not sure if it works but after taking it last night i was 1cm dilated this morning at my doctor's appointment she did a sweep and gave me some homework! Hopefully I'll be in labor soon!!
