I believe that the purpose of mineral oil is to soften stools so that they pass easily if they are hard. The oil probably also helps to lube the colon. For me, rather than distressing the entire intestinal tract, if I were going to use mineral oil, rather than taking spoons full and digesting it, I would prefer to inject four oz of mineral oil using a Fleet Mineral Oil enema or buying mineral oil by the quart and putting four ounces in using a bulb syringe. (Should your bulb syringe be made of rubber, one must make sure that the oil has been thoroughly washed out of it using a good dish washing liquid before putting it away.) When I do that, I take the oil enema at bed time then when I get up in the morning, if careful, one can eat breakfast, then empty the oil out followed by three very soapy enemas, one after the other to get rid of the oil. One has to be very careful holding an oil enema because if you thing that you need to pass gas, when you do, you will have an oily mess to clean up. Of course you can take the 3 soapy enemas (SSE) as soon as you get up. BTW, mineral oil protects the colon from the soap suds. By the time the third SSE is finished the oil will be mostly gone. If you do not do the SSE's you will be leaking oil for a day or two after you expel the first oil.
I'm in no way an expert on these things; however, I do not believe that the mineral oil will clean out the small intestine as well as the castor oil will on its way through. I also believe that taking the castor oil will give a superior thorough clean-out than the mineral oil will. Maybe someone with more knowledge on this could further communicate on this practice.
