Oil Extraction Method



Get a half pint jar, pour in 1/2 C sea salt then add olive oil until it is even with the top of the jar (you want as little air as possible after putting on the lid).  Shake the ingredients for a couple minutes to get it fully mixed.  Pour through a filter (I use a cone coffee filter) and let all of the liquid drip out.  You're done.  Be sure to store it in a dark colored container with a tight fitting lid.  Some say wrapping it in aluminum foil will work also.  I use a cobalt blue bottle with a stopper cap.  This stuff is amazingly easy to make.

Subject: ORMUS oil - some info


For the 2 years I've been making Live Oil (adding salt to oil), and then graduating to making ointments and then to making Extreme Cream, I've done quite a bit of research into various oils. Because I have a back ground in essential oils, my appreciation of non-volatile oils has sky-rocketed due to this research.


Just think how precious botanical oils are. They are the life-force of the plant. Yes, it's true that many of the nutrients plants absorb are water based, but the plant converts those nutrients into sustaining chemicals that are, for the most part, oil based or bonded to a lipid. For instance, even minerals can bond to lipids, but they themselves aren't oil-based substances. Oil based or oil-bound man-made chemicals are the preferred manufacturing method because oil is sustaining whereas water is fleeting and disappears quickly. This is why plant based oils are incredibly precious as most of the plants resources are in their oil.


When choosing an oil to do the Live Oil process on, consider what you want to use that oil for - consumption, topical or both? You can also blend your oils. Below are some of the oils I have used and some descriptions of their benefits and shelf life.


But first, if you are interested in making a Live Oil for topical use, you may also be interested in taking it one step further and to make an ointment. You can find the recipe on my website:




There are many benefits to turning your Live Oil into an ointment. One is that using oil on your skin is messy, whereas an ointment goes directly where you apply it. The wax seems to hold the ORMUS in place so it doesn't 'dissipate' as easily. It also seems to protect the oil from degenerating so you get maximum shelf life from your Live Oil. Another benefit I appreciate with Live Oil ointments is that there is a time-release benefit that can be felt by some people. It keeps the oils in place and the benefits seem to be prolonged over using just plain Live Oil.


RE: salt choices


I have never been overly concerned about potential harm from salt used in Live Oil process because the salt does not dissolve. However, if you are concerned, then stick with a bath-salt that is also used as a table salt. Generally speaking, the salt must be damp or the ORMUS content is low or non-existent. For some examples, check out:




Also, stay away from fine grain salt as it is difficult to separate form the oil.


~~~ SOME OILS ~~~


Black Seed - (shelf life 2 yrs)

Excellent health oil for consumption, but controversial for topical application. However, there are certain conditions that I think using Black Seed topically might be called for. 


Camelina oil (shelf life 2 years)


Deep color and strong odor and flavor. Nutritious for people and animals like it. Because of color, does not make good topical oil though it has great healing benefits.


Castor oil (shelf life 2 years)

Excellent topical oil.


Coconut oil 2yrs

Melts at 76 degrees. max 100 degrees. GREAT Live Oil but needs to be summer temps. Many well documented health benefits both for topical and internal use.


Evening Primrose Seed oil - 1 yr.


Common medicinal plant in N. America, Asia and Europe. Consumed  for nutrition as well as sore throat & stomach problems. Used topically for hemorrhoids  & bruises. Anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, vasodilator. Tons of research:

alcohol withdrawal



Alzheimer & memory


blood pressure

breast disease (fibrocystic)



infertility & impotence




nerve damage


weight lose

I began taking twice the recommended amount of EPO and have been seeing significant health benefits from it.


Grape seed oil - 2years


hemp seed oil - 2yrs

Both Grape Seed and Hemp oils have similar profiles and benefits. One can generally find same research on one as on the other. Research includes:



blood pressure

crohns disease

cardiovascular disease




gall stones

kidney disease


hormone balance & menopause

Immune deficiency

metabolism & low energy




Topically heals skin, is anti-inflammatory & anti-oxidant.


Meadowfoam Seed oil - 2yrs.


Amazing topical benefits.


Plum Kernal oil - 2yrs


Plum oil from Prunus spp is similar to peach, cherry and apricot (Prunus armeniaca). All have anti-cancer properties  Not recommended for consumption by people with kidney or gall stones. Non-greasy oil when used topically.


Sea Buckthorn oil - 2yrs

Deep red or dark yellow in color. Too much color for most topical uses yet it has great topical benefits. Tons of medical research for both internal and external use. Recommended consumption 1 Tbl / day


Sesame oil - 2 yrs.


Light oil, good for diet & topical. Another excellent health oil. Light enough to be used for 'oil pulling'. High in copper and calcium and I have witnessed ORMUS behavior in untreated (straight from the store) sesame oil.


Soy oil - 2 yrs

High in vitamin E and is great topical oil for healing. However, Argan Oil is also high in vitamin E and seems to have many more health benefits both topically and internally.


Sunflower oil - 2 yrs.


Highly nutritious. Light oil. absorbs easily. Also recommended for Oil Pulling.


Tamanu oil - 2 yrs 


Over-whelming evidence for topical application. Scars, anti-fungal, anti-biotic, burns, EXCELLENT TOPICAL OIL



Happy creating!
