About Pure and Genuine Jojoba Oil

Extracted from Jojoba bean

Natural Vitamin E added

Extraordinary long shelf life

Jojoba Oil is not, in fact, an oil but instead a liquid wax extracted from the jojoba bean. Sometimes referred to as “Liquid Gold,” Jojoba gained prominence as a more humane substitute for sperm whale oil, with which it shares some functional attributes.  Actually, its chemical composition resembles that of human sebum, our skin’s naturally oily secretion.  Owing to its own sebaceous nature, Jojoba readily penetrates and disperses sebum. Jojoba is particularly valuable in facial and body oils as well as hair treatments.  It is antioxidant and preservative, naturally pH balanced, and has extraordinary moisturizing, lubricating, and emollient properties.

Directions: for full body massage add 10 - 15 drops of essential oil to 1 oz (30mL) of jojoba oil.  For partial body massage add 20 - 40 drops of essential oil to 1oz (30mL) jojoba oil.

This oil’s aroma is distinct but light and pleasant without sweetness.  Generally yellow in color, its texture feels more waxy smooth and silky rather than slick and wet.  It penetrates hence absorbs nicely, leaving the skin conspicuously soft, smooth, and supple.

Jojoba is commonly mixed in a small proportion, say 10%, with other oils. It can, however, be used by itself as a base as well as an ingredient in blends. Being chemically quite stable, it has an extraordinarily long shelf-life. For that reason and its antioxidant constituencies it does not turn rancid as do other oils.
