Why I Love Jojoba Oil (Umm Wax...)

October 10, 2017


I use organic, cold pressed jojoba oil (Simmondsia chinensis), which is actually a liquid wax, for nearly all of my dilutions, and I incorporate it into creams, butters, and lotions rather than the more popular fractionated coconut oil. Coconut oil is great, but I personally find it drying (some people do) and jojoba oil, although a bit more more expensive offers some amazing benefits.


First of all jojoba oil doesn't go rancid. I've seen it listed as having a shelf life of 24 months to 27 years. It's not truly an oil but a wax so it doesn't undergo the same kind of changes oils do. 


Jojoba oil resembles the skin's natural sebum. It absorbs easily and contains protein, minerals and a waxy substance that mimics collagen. It absorbs easily and offers many great properties. I love the fact it doesn't go rancid! It won't spoil your products.


Andrea Butje says jojoba is skin therapy! Use for


* Dry skin and hair

* To relieve dryness, irritation, and itching of dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, and other skin issues.

*Used for acne to open clogged pores and support skins natural pH balance

* Soothe sunburns

* Soothe chapped skin

* Control excess build up sebum, avoid oily skin

* Balances both dry and oily skin

* Supports healthy skin as one ages

* Great for massage

* Jojoba contains has a high content of essential fatty acids (stearic, oleic and palmitic). 1



Oleic acid: Very moisturizing, and helps skin cells regenerate quickly. Very well absorbed by the skin. Acts as an anti-inflammatory. 2


Stearic acid: Improved moisture retention, increase in flexibility of the skin, and skin damage repair. 2


Palmitic acid: A building block in our skin that prevents burns, wounds, skin scratches. Most active anti-microbial in human sebum. Treat damaged skin and mucous membranes. 2


Many of our products feature jojoba oil. Visit our web store. If you have questions about essential oil or carrier oil such as jojoba contact Tricia. She can make a blend, lotion, cream, or product to meet your needs. 


So I love this oil because it's long lasting and offers many great benefits at a reasonable price for organic, unrefined oil. 


To your awesome skin and hair.


Stay healthy my friends,
