better than Castrol GTX oil

maybe grandma was a fan of Il Duce

from wikipedia "In Fascist Italy under the regime of Benito Mussolini, castor oil was one of the tools of the blackshirts.[41][42][43] Political dissidents were force-fed large quantities of castor oil by Fascist paramilitary groups. This technique was said to have been originated by Gabriele D'Annunzio. Victims of this treatment rarely died, though often had to bear the humiliation of the laxative effects resulting from excessive consumption of the oil.[44]

It is said that Mussolini's power was backed by "the bludgeon and castor oil". In lesser quantities, castor oil was also used as an instrument of intimidation, for example to discourage civilians or soldiers who would call in sick either in the factory or in the military. Since its healing properties were widely exaggerated, abuse could be easily masked under pretense of a doctor's prescription. It took decades after Mussolini's death before the myth of castor oil as a panacea for a wide range of diseases and medical conditions was totally demystified, as it was also widely administered to pregnant women, elderly or mentally-ill patients in hospitals in the false belief that it had no negative side effects."
