This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

Oil Cleansing Method Revisited


I began using using the OCM on April 5 (as talked about in this blog) and did it every night for a month. I was pretty happy with the results and loved that I was using such cheap and natural ingredients to clean my skin. Then my concoction ran out and I was out of town for a week so I went almost 2 weeks without doing it and instead using an astringent that I used to use.

I immediately noticed a difference. My same problems were back--extra dry skin after cleaning, oily skin in the morning, oily skin throughout the day....so I finally mixed up some more and took pics to show you the ingredients!

Just 3 ingredients! Castor oil, EVOO, and Tea tree oil. I designated a nifty little travel container to hold it all. Here are the amounts:


I use 2/3 castor oil and 1/3 olive oil. I added more tea tree oil to this batch--about a teaspoon or two--compared to only a couple drops in my last batch. As you can see, my container is not even half full, yet I'm sure this will last me at least a month. It just takes a few drops to clean your face and eliminates your need for lotion! Be sure to gently shake each time to mix the oils up.

I can't really say if there is a visible difference in my complexion. Maybe less redness? It has only been a month so I will keep you posted on what I see and feel in the future. Here are some pics for you either way!
