Grapeseed oil - mixed with rosewater and used as a facial moisturizer spritz
Coconut oil - whole body moisture, especially on really hot days
Olive oil - easy to obtain, used in all decoctions/infusions
Shea butter - a little on wet hair that's been crunchy and dry, rough heels
Castor oil - in my flaxseed gel
Lavender essential oil - multi-purpose, hair freshener, summer sheet/skin freshener, spritz under arms before adding powder
Sweet Almond oil - under eye moisturizer, cheeks in the winter
Mustard oil - newly added to my overnight scalp oil
That's all I can think of right now. But I'm sure there's more, I haunt my supermarket's oil aisle.
The feminine mystique has succeeded in burying millions of American women alive.
