Yep, you read correctly, I wash my face with oil and it’s one of the best natural beauty remedies I have ever tried!

A few weeks ago I decided to go No-Poo and after a daunting and greasy first week I have experience wonderful, luscious, happy hair that only needs to be “washes” about every 6 days, but giving up shampoo wasn’t enough. I wanted more, I wanted to trade out any product I could for a more natural way of self maintenance and that’s when I stumbled across the SimpleMom post on Oil Face Wash.

After reading all about it I learned that you can cleanse your face with natural oils instead of stripping it with harsh soaps, and surprisingly enough it doesn’t make your skin greasy at all, in fact it left my skin feeling perfectly balance and I no longer have any need for a moisturizer!!!

It’s super easy too. All you do is gentle massage your oil of choice into the skin on your face, followed up with a hot damp towel to open your pores, then you just use the towel to gentle remove the oil and there you have it, wonderful clean skin with a product that you most likely keep in your kitchen. If you read the article on SimpleMom it has advice on how to mix oils to make the perfect blend for your skin type.

Just like any other change in facial routine switching to oil is first going to make your skin break out as it draws any impurities to the surface, but after a week or two I started to really notice clearer skin with a large downsizing in blackheads, and I haven’t gotten a new blemish in a week!


Thanks so much for reading!

This week I’ve been fascinated by the oil cleansing method of “washing” your face. For those of you wondering Oil Cleansing is where you use olive oil, castor oil or some mixture of other natural oils to cleanse your face without removing the natural oils that your skin produces. I’ve been trying it for about 5 days now and am planning a post to tell you all about it in a few weeks.


I also read a birth story that brought me to tears. Carricomom over at Dragonfly Homestead wrote a very truthful and raw retelling of her daughter’s birth far from the plan she had envisioned. Let me just warn you that this is a scary story with a happy ending, but if you are pregnant and already feeling nervous about birth I would take caution with reading it.


Have a great weekend everyone, and thanks for reading.
