I love this oil. I love all the kinds of organic virgin oils but this one I buy the most often. I eat it with a spoon, also, when I feel the need for (healthy) fat.
To wash your face with it, though, is a bit tricky because in contact with some skins it gets an unpleasant smell. I would first check it out, before you but a 1 kg jar:-).
Some people also use this oil for the hair (before shower, as a nutritional mask , especially for damaged hair) but for my hair is this too much..
Also, if you use it for your face, the cloth you wash your face with could also get an unpleasant smell quite soon. If possible, wash your cloth once in two days, or rotate a few so that you do not use one cloth for more than two days.
I posted a video for "how to" on today's general blog blog.
In the summer, when I feel that the oil might be too much for my face, I wash my face in kinda the same way, but with honey (Manuka honey is the best but I use whatever we have):
I do not do this every day any more, as I did in the beginning. RIght now I do it once in a few days, depending on how much time I have or what I did in the mean time, as some activities bring more dead skin to the surface than others.. The rest of the days I only use water.
Ps for the ones of us who use makeup:
As I 99,99% from the time do not use any kind of make up (with the exception of some of the videos I made lately), I do not need a makeup remover. The super little tiny bit eye shadow I use for the vids can very easily and safely be removed with oil - with the same method, wetting the eye lid, smooth the oil over, remove with wet cloth.
If you use more makeup, you might want to look into a natural organic makeup remover, Dr. Hauscka being the most known commercial one (yes, it's expensive but it has a wonderful smell and texture). Only after the makeup is removed I recommend using one of the face wash methods above.
PPS: Like with every kind of detox (except, maybe, your home detox), when you start such a practice with more natural materials, you skin is likely to break out as it starts eliminating the stuff it accumulated under the surface and more. Being let alone to do it's job, your skin is your biggest eliminating "organ". If, by any chance, your skin is covered some or most of the time so that it cannot eliminate anything, the result is accumulation of toxins and chemicals under it, that will start to eliminate if given the chance.
