If anyone reads this and runs for a hot bath, let me clarify. The oil, once released, acts just like it does in the kitchen sink. If the waters not hot all the time and draining, it will sit in a layer on the dishes. DON'T take hot baths the first few days and let the oil float to the top. YIKES!

Take showers or better yet, grab a roll of paper towels and using them once, run hot water over it, place it on your skin (drool a bit from the relief) and then throw it away. Use new paper towels the first few days to make sure the oil is being removed.

Then you can go to hand towels or hot baths.

Just hate for someone to get more of it from reading the post!
