Default OCM Oil Questions

I know I can find castor oil at any drugstore but can I find other oils? I know the hair aisles tend to have olive oil and tea tree oil but those are not the kind to use for OCM I think. I'm considering maybe EVOO? I know I can get that at a Stop and Shop?

What oils do you all use?

You might have better luck at the grocery store. I can usually find a wide selection of cold-pressed oils at my grocery store such as coconut, grapeseed, olive, safflower, peanut, and a bunch of others. Of you have a whole foods or other organic market you can find even more there.

I can probably go to Vitamin Shoppe as well now that I think about it.

I use castor cut with grapeseed. NCC is on the money. A health food store is usually the best place to find oils. Most people say as long as you have castor, that you can cut it with anything.

I live in a small town and buy most everything online. I use a mixture of sunflower, safflower, hemp seed, and jojoba oils.
