What are your favorite oils?

I'd like to have a few more oils for my hair and face. I've been studying the natural care and recipes sections, but thought I'd ask for your specific advice here.

I already use jojoba and coconut oils, plus Ojon RT, JCN&S, and shea butter. I have a few essential oils (rosemary, lavender, etc.). From what I've read, I'm particularly interested in castor oil, almond, and camellia oil, but I see people are using so many others -- broccoli seed? carrot? emu? (really, emu? as in oil of an ostrich-type bird? :eek:)

I've seen some posts pro & con about castor oil and some mention Jamaican black castor oil. Is regular drugstore castor oil OK or to be avoided? What is the deal with the Jamaican black castor oil? Is the main thing to look for unrefined expeller-press oils, or? Again, I'm thinking of using oils both for the OCM (skin care routine) and for hair. I'm making my own FSG so it might go in there, or currently I use coconut oil or the Ojon or JCN&S as a pre-poo/overnight treatment, and jojoba as a frizz tamer/softener on dry days.

Also, if you have a rec to one source or another for online ordering or a particular brand in the stores, that would be great. I have been looking at Garden of Wisdom thus far for online orders.

Thank you!

    Shawnette replied to this post about condish with great info on what oils to use for your hair. It might really help you decide what to add to your homemade concotions.

    I don't use the OCM but I do use Vitamin E on my face every day as part of my natural skin care routine. It has worked better for me than anything else so far but the emu oil does intrigue me.

    Thank you, Jess. That's a very helpful thread.

    Can you tell me a bit more about your vitamin E oil? What kind do you buy -- is it pure E or E in a carrier oil? I never know if it's OK to buy whatever's at the drug store or if I need to find something special elsewhere. Thanks again.

    It's pure E that I get from Whole Foods. I use it in place of evoo in my routine as a moisturizer. For my oils I usually go to whole foods or my local health food store but it may just be my mind tricking itself into thinking they are better.

    Thanks, Jess. I'm the same way, and in a lot of cases I'm sure they are better quality.

    I just love avocado oil and camellia oil. :thumbup:

    I use the avocado oil (the one you use for cooking)for everything: hair, face and body, it makes my skin really soft. (doesn' smell to good though)

    The camellia oil I have in my hair and in my face, it's smells lovely and makes my hair shine and it's good for my face too.

    I don't really use oils much on my hair- but if I did it would be Almond oil. I much prefer the smell and texture to other oils I have tried!

    You didn't mention this oil, but I use extra virgin olive oil as part of my oil cleanse method. I've also been using it as a moisturizer on my face afterwards by itself and also after my shower on my body. I *love* it. I've been wanting to try it in my hair, but I'm afraid it might not come out with a co-wash. I'd really just want it mainly for my scalp, but I'm a bit afraid to try it just yet. :icon_smile: I only smell like a salad for a little while. :icon_smile:

    Camellia, avocado, vatika, bring-raj & Ramtirth brahmi oils (the Indian oils are coconut or sesame based) are my favorite for hair/scalp. Camellia & rice bran oils work well on my combination skin. I don't care for straight castor, olive or jojoba...
  • Heather0kayHeather0kay Posts: 667Registered Users
    I do like Emu, broccoli seed, carrot seed and jojoba! I like them because they are the lightest oils. Broccoli seed seem to be the lightest and gives a nice shine. Emu and jojoba are great for the scalp and I may smooth a drop on my hair before I go to bed and they are good for skin. I like olive oil treatments with heat; it gives my hair more body.

    I don't use any oils in my hair but I do use them for cleansing and moisturizing my skin. My favorites for that are castor and olive oil. I mix up a tub of 3/4 olive oil and 1/4 castor oil and put that on my face every morning and night, then wipe off with a washcloth. Sometimes I'll pour a tiny cup of sugar and add this into it to make a scrub. As for the Black Jamaican Castor Oil, I'm not sure. I use normal castor oil from anywhere and I get good results.

    Yes, without any problems :p. I usually put it in the day before washing day and sleep with it, so some is soaked up by the hair and the rest is probably on my pillowcase :toothy10:

    For my face (OCM) - camellia, rose hip seed, baobab and castor in a mix.

    For my hair - Jamaican black castor oil and regular castor oil (the Jamaican one has a smell and is less tackier than the regular); and grapeseed. I occasionally use a few drops of baobab on my dry hair.

    Thanks. I'm guessing olive oil would be similar to the avocado oil and probably come out with a co-wash then as well.

    Strawberry is a little pricey compared to the others. $8 for a 1/2 ounce so I use it sparingly. Papaya is better price wise.

    I've seen it at FNWL too but they charge you $5 for an order that is under $20. Also its twice the price for 1/2 ounce for strawberry.

    I may try Cherry Kernel oil next. It's cheaper and gets lots of raves.

    Thank you all very much for your suggestions. There are so many beneficial oils, some of which I've never even heard of before coming to NC.

    Look at this great resource I found today on the Long Hair Community -- it lists a LOT of the oils and gives info on their properties. Awesome! :thumbup:

    /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fforums.longhaircommunity.com%2Fvbjournal.php%3Fdo%3Darticle%26amp%3Barticleid%3D66" class="Popup

    I think I'm going to start with camellia oil and some castor oil, and maybe some avocado or peach kernel, in addition to my coconut, jojoba, and shea butter. I realize I also have some grapeseed oil in the kitchen. I have used olive oil, too, in DTs.

    Does anyone have strong feelings about where to purchase the special oils? I know some of the Asian groceries sell camellia oil for cooking -- do you think that's OK to use? And what about castor oil -- should I avoid the stuff that's at the pharmacy and buy it from say, Whole Foods, or online? If you have a preference for online sellers, please advice -- I've been browsing Garden of Wisdom this week and they seem to be popular here. Thanks again for sharing your experience.

    Maja, where do you buy your oils? And are you using Chinese camellia oil or Japanese? I would like to go with the Chinese as apparently it's a lot less spendy. I'm really looking forward to the camellia oil as everyone seems to like it. Seems like a natural for me since I love tea and apparently it comes from the tea plant, camellia sinensis.

    CurryCurls, I have used EVOO in my DTs. I don't add a lot, because I do think it's a little harder to co-wash out. I haven't tried it yet on my face or body, but I will give it a try. I am starting to do the OCM for face, so I may try it. Thus far I've been using jojoba oil alone -- I need to buy the castor oil.

    I don't mind smelling like a salad. ;-)

    Rosehip oil is a great face moisturizer because of its anti-oxidant properties. It also contains vitamin C which evens skin tone. My face loves it. For a long time I could only use Korres Rose Moisturizer and rosehip oil is one of the main ingredients. I've been using the real deal and its been working.
    In the past I've ordered oils from FNWL but they are very pricey and I'm sure theres better oil companies out there.

I mix 10% castor with 90% EVOO. My skin is a bit dry. I recently started using the olive for moisturizing. I also find the olive oil sinks in better/faster than the jojoba.

    Thanks for the tip on the rose hip seed oil -- turns out it's the same as rose mosqueta, which I've heard is supposed to be great stuff. Here's the listing for Garden of Wisdom's oil -- maybe their prices are better than FNWL. I think I'm going to place an order with GOW, a lot of people on NC seem to shop with them and the prices look good to me. I will definitely try the rosehip oil.

    Tinah, that souinds like a nice DT. I did one with EVOO yesterday and, as I thought, it was really hard to get it out of my hair. It came out really curly yesterday but still oily. I Co-washed again a few times today and I can still feel some in my hair.
