Happy Monday loves! We’re talking about Jojoba Oil today 🙂
Jojoba oil is one of the most nutrient rich oils. It has a very long half life (only shorter than coconut and castor oils) and is generally one of the more expensive carrier oils.
The jojoba plant is native to Arizona, California and Mexico but we found some that is grown right here in Kenya (yay to supporting home grown businesses).
It’s extracted from the seed by pressing and the oil makes up about 50% of the seed by weight.
💫BENEFITS FOR SKIN
✨Make up removal. Add a few drops of jojoba oil to fingers or to a cotton ball and wipe over eyes and face. Rinse off with water and follow with regular cleanser.
✨Facial and body moisturizer. Apply Jojoba Oil immediately after shower or bath, while skin is still damp. This helps seal in moisture, leaving skin soft and smooth without an oily residue.
✨Body and scalp massage. Jojoba is great sensitive skin. Massage into body at home or at the spa for moisture and relaxation and massage into scalp to help relieve dryness.
✨Shaving preparation and aftershave. Apply to beard or desired area before and after shaving. Helps prevent razor burn and leaves skin smooth, soft and moisturized.
✨As a carrier oil. Dilute a few drops of your favorite essential oil in Jojoba Oil prior to massaging onto skin or scalp. Great for DIY beauty recipes.
💫BENEFITS FOR HAIR
✨It is readily absorbed by your scalp due to how light it is and it’s similarity to sebum.
✨Jojoba oil has the highest content (100%) of monounsaturated (98%) and saturated (2%) fats making it an excellent oil for pre poos. It penetrates the hair shaft really well and helps to prevent hygral fatigue. Avocado Oil and Coconut Oil are also pretty good for this.
✨Jojoba oil contains Vitamin E which reduces damage caused to hair by heat and overprocessing. Massaging it into your hair will also help reduce split ends.
✨Jojoba oil helps to soften and add shine to your natural hair.
