15 Uses for Organic Jojoba Oil

Jojoba is a perennial woody shrub native to southern Arizona, southern California and northwestern Mexico. Native Americans extracted the oil from Jojoba seeds to treat wounds and also used the oil as a skin and hair moisturizer. Many of the beneficial properties of Jojoba come from the fact that it matches the molecular structure of hair and skin sebum. As a result, Jojoba is able to quickly penetrate the skin and scalp without leaving an oily residue.

There is no need to spend hundreds of dollars on products to reduce lines, smooth frizzy hair or remove makeup. Jojoba Oil is simple, natural, and has so many uses and benefits.
