I recently visited my friend's mom whom I haven't seen in maybe over a year and is who I consider the ultimate "naturalista" and was one of my first customers. She has fought and won the battle with cancer and has done it the natural way. She has forgone traditional treatment of chemotherapy or radiation and has opted to change her lifestyle through a holistic approach. She has cut out process foods as well as beauty products laden with synthetic ingredients. As I sat down and chatted with my friend's mom I notice how unbelievably smooth and even tone her skin was, no makeup, no nothing. I told her that her skin looked flawless and asked her what she uses on her face? She told me that she used jojoba oil (pronounced ho-HO-bah) to moisturize her face. She went on to share a story about her recent visit to the doctor and when the doctor asked her age, he looked at her chart in shock to confirm it because he said he thought she was 20 years younger. She's a perfect example of putting to practice the motto that I've always believed since the conception of my company which is "nature provides us with everything that we need."
Jojoba oil is a liquid wax which comes from the seed of the jojoba plant, a shrub native to southern Arizona, California and northwestern Mexico. Jojoba oil composition closely resembles the natural sebum within the skin which is what makes it a excellent oil for the skin. It is also non-greasy and anti-inflammatory and has a variety of different uses. You don't need to spend lots of money to smooth out wrinkles, moisturize your skin or to bring shine to your tresses. Jojoba is natural, inexpensive and has multiple uses.
USES OF JOJOBA
It's an eye makeup remover - Since jojoba oils is a not an eye irritant nor is it allergenic, it can be used to remove mascara, eyeshadow, lipstick and blush
It's a face moisturizer - Because jojoba's composition closely resembles that of human sebum our skin easily accepts it without causing a reaction or a break out. If you have oily skin and is afraid of putting oil on you face, no worries, the jojoba oil will help balance the oil production on your face. Use sparingly!
Hair conditioner - Jojoba oil is a great conditioner for frizzy and dry hair. Apply to your hair and let sit with a cap under a dryer for 10 minutes or by itself for 20 minutes. Shampoo and rinse and the results will be beautiful shiny hair.
Body Moisturizer - You can use jojoba oil all over the body before or after a shower. It has a hydrating effect on the skin and will increase blood flow.
