Widely used as a carrier or base oil for the application of essential oils in massage (can also be applied as a massage oil without essential oils). Use in the making of a hair mask or natural moisturiser. Can also be used as it is for an all natural moisturiser or oil cleanser.
Native to the desert areas of Mexico, Arizona and California.
Jojoba blends well with any carrier oil and is often diluted with Sweet Almond or similar to lessen the expense of using Jojoba. It also works well with any essential oil, although you may like to further enhance the skincare properties of the oil by using essential oils that are nourishing for the skin such as palmarosa, sandalwood, rose otto etc.
For oil cleansing. apply a small amount to the palm of your hand and gently massage over the face to help cleanse, purify and remove makeup. Gently wash off with warm water or with a clean flannel. Suitable for use on the hair to help promote manageability and shine. Try massaging 10-20ml (depending on length of hair) from the roots to the tips and allow some time before washing out. Use as a carrier oil for your essential oils. Try using as a natural all over body moisturiser.
Pronounced "hohoba", Jojoba originated in the Sonoran Desert of Southern California and was used extensively by the native Americans for cosmetic and medicinal purposes.

After having my second baby I have been struck with hormonal hair loss, so I bought this to use as a hair treatment mixed with lavender and rosemary oil. It is very nourishing for the hair, and I will also use it on my skin, I found it a little difficult to wash out but all together a lovely product and my hair is looking super after using it. I will be buying a bigger bottle next time.
