I was at the same stage at one time, I would shiver just looking at the OO, but eventually I got over it. And now with the Greek OO (Olive-Oil) I do so much better and follow the system I mentioned above. This morning I even tried a TBS OO (Olive-Oil) to swish my mouth.
I had never tried that but I got reminded on the Barefoot Herbalist forum. I knew it from Andreas Moritz originally.
