    Zuleikha, yes, walnut oil can be used for the OCM and can be mixed with other oils as well. Some people feel it can be a bit too greasy for their skin, but then everyone’s different and if it works ok for you, there’s no reason not to use it.

    Rose, yes, I think it’s safe. If you’ve used without problems I don’t see any reason to stop.
