Hi ladies!

I've been doing OCM for about a month now and love! love!! love!!! it. I'm using equal parts castor & EVOO and have had no problems - its working a charm. I would like to bump it up a little if I could - wondering what would be a good essential oil to add? My skin is generally crazy oily with huge pores. (But it is behaving more with OCM, yay!) I hardly ever get real breakouts usually just clogged pores around my nose and the occasional blackhead. (TMI yet??!) I was thinking maybe adding lavender or tea tree oil to the mix. Any experience or insight you could share?

Im not very familiar with OCM, but I use a jojoba and lavender blend and it works well on my skin, it is a lot clearer smile.gif I'll add a drop of TTO sometimes if I need it.
