View Full Version : Oil splurge

June 10th, 2012, 04:30 PM
It was my Birthday yesterday so Ithought I would treat myself an I've splurged out on a few new oils and I thought I'd try some shea butter whilst I was at it.

I've ordered
50ml Jojoba Golden Oil - 100% Pure Cold Pressed
10ml Jasmine Fragrant Oil
250ml Castor Oil - 100% Pure Cold Pressed
100ml Coconut Fractionated Oil
100g Organic Shea Butter Unrefined
10ml Vanilla Fragrant Oil

So I'm going to have a go at Kimberlillys butters and sprays but is there anything else super fun or handy i can do with these oils rather then just the usual stuff.

Also a quick on on castor oil does it have to be used neat or could i mix it with other oils to make it easier to apply(I've heard its like applying tar to the scalp)

Thanks in advance for your replies!

Happy belated birthday! I'm waiting for when I can splure on oil but feel like I already have too many I need to finish first... :/ lol

Happy Birthday! Castor oil is thick and kind of sticky; you definitely want to mix it with another oil or you'll have a very hard time using it.

Dilute that castor oil, lol! It's quite thick and heavy. Happy birthday by the way!

You could try mixing some of the Shea and jojoba oils together and applying to your face at night after washing for an excellent night cream. :)

Castor oil is very sticky on its own and applying it neat can be quite difficult and result in pulling hair. I mix 50-50 castor oil and jojoba before applying it to the scalp and it works nicely that way :)

Happy birthday! :D

So diluting it the way to go and it doesn't matter which? and that face cream idea sounds blissful~ I want wait for it to arrive now *sits and watches the door*
