Natural Remedy | Jojoba Oil

Jojoba Oil (pronounced ho-ho-ba) is a fantastic multi-purpose moisturizing oil, that is also suitable for all skin types. Derived from the beeds of the natural Jojoba plant (simmondsia chinesis). It is theorized, but not yet proven that Jojoba oil is so similar to human skin oil, it can "trick" the skin into thinking it has produced enough oil and thus balances oil production.  You can use Jojoba oil for your hair, body, skin, cuticles and massages.

Here are how we use Jojoba oil:
Moisturizer: We use 5-6 drops of Jojoba oil into our hands and massage it on our face or body if needed, to make it a super soft moisturizer. 
Make-up remover: It works on foundation, blush, lipstick and even eye makeup. Since Jojoba oil is not an eye irritant, nor allergenic, we use few drops on a cotton pad and wipe gently.
Lip balm: We apply few drops on our finger and apply to our lips. 
Hair: We heat up the Jojoba oil and massage it into our hair and scalp, then we cover with a warm moist towel for 8-10 minutes. Or we sometimes just apply few drops to our conditioner for that healthy shiny look and it also prevents dandruff.
Shave prep: We put a whole bunch of Jojoba oil beneath the shaving cream to help prevent razor burns and leaves our skin feeling soft. 
Massage oil: WOW, a little goes a long way, when using Jojoba oil for massaging, helps skin feel smooth and prevents body acne. 
Cuticles: After taking a shower we massage Jojoba oil on our cuticles and leave overnight.

  9. Hi Mallory

    I bought the Jojoba oil from Holland and Barrets or John Lewis or online. I can see you live in France, so try searching on internet to see where it is sold near you..
