baking soda and olive oil

 hello this is about my five billionth time posting,sorry,i love this community
 tired of OCM questions yet? well heres another one!
 I really want to try it but I don't have transportation to go somewhere and get castor oil..
 would it be alright to use just olive oil and baking soda?
 or does that sound completely ridiculous?

That would not be OCM if you are using baking soda. It be like someone making a cake and forgetting the four so they throw in meatloaf instead. O_O Just no.

you can OCM with just olive oil. might be worth a try, if you feel like your skin isn't getting cleansed enough you can add castor oil later when you are able to get some. i find castor oil to be incredibly drying to my skin so i only use about 5% in my mix and sometimes OCM with just almond oil by itself on occasion.

I've never used castor oil. I have used almond, olive, massage oil (probably almond and sunflower mixed together? Whatever, it had some nice EOs in it) and am currently using jojoba. I just use whatever is on hand/ smells nice.

I'm kinda lazy :D

Nix the baking soda; try it with just olive oil. I've done that in a pinch and it works wonderfully.

But I use baking soda with a pinch of water to "wash" my face, leave it on a few mins until tingly, rinse well.. Then moistuorize with jojoba oil or olive oil (just a dab or two) my skin has never felt/ looked better!

you can get castor oil at like any supermarket or drugstore.

Funny thing about that is that it is not necessarily true. I stopped at two drugs stores and one grocery store yesterday in search of castor oil but it seems none of them carry it anymore. I even asked for assistance to make sure I wasn't just retarded and not finding it. The "closest" things they had were milk of magnesia and mineral oil. =[...One day castor oil will be mine!

Edit: P to the S, I really dig your icon!

I made a mask out of stuff I found in my kitchen: lime juice, sugar, honey, and a little olive oil. I painted it on my face, left it on for a bit, and it plumped out my wrinkles. :)

Just a side note if you use baking soda:

I use it every now and then as an additional scrub. I have dyed-black hair and noticed that it was starting to get orange-y around my forehead. Then I remembered that baking soda strips hair of its color! Just be careful around your hairline if you use it.
