One natural cleansing method we have been researching is called the The Oil Cleansing Method or "OCM". You can read the article here: The cleansing oil method. In a gist, oil removes oil from the skin. Castor oil and olive oil are used along with essential oils you can add to suit your skin care needs.

Before I found this article, I had been experimenting with Olive oil. I recently have been using olive oil and dark brown sugar as an exfoliating face scrub. A few things I noticed the olive oil did for my skin were: It removed my eye makeup! This was a shock to me as I wear liquid liner, mascara and eyeshadow, and it took it all off! My skin also felt as smooth as well, a baby's butt. :)

Below is a list of essential oils and ingredients you can add to the castor/olive oil mixture for your face type and the directions.

Keep in mind that castor oil can be drying and adjust the ratio with the olive oil to suit your face type. Also, to remove eye makeup, keep a small amount of just the castor/olive oil with essential oils in it, aside.
Ingredients: 1 tablespoon castor oil, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and your added suitable ingredients. Use 1 drop of essential oil. When using vegetable oils such as jojoba, use 1 tablespoon.

Directions: Mix up the ingredients. This is for one face wash. Apply to skin in a circular motion for 2 minutes. Using a warm face cloth, rinse and wipe off face. Your face will feel very oily while you are cleansing. Do not worry. The face cloth will remove the excess oil and when you dry your face with a towel, this will too. The results are super soft skin!
