The benefits of jojoba oil
Jojoba oil is one of the most versatile essential oils you can use on your skin.
Obtained from the jojoba plant, this light golden, slightly nutty smelling oil is found in Mexico and parts of the US such as California and Arizona.
The oil is a liquefied form of vegetable wax and found in the seeds of the jojoba plant.
It is commonly found in its cold pressed unrefined state, where it is easy to apply to the body and carry with you in your bag.
Plus, unlike some other oils it does not contain triglycerides, meaning it has a relatively long shelf life.
High quality jojoba oil comes with a long list of benefits, owing to its high concentration of vitamins and nutrients.
Jojoba oil contains a large selection of important nutrients such as vitamin E, B complex vitamins and minerals, chromium, copper, zinc and silicon.
The presence of iodine helps it to fight against bacterial and fungal infections.
Uses of Jojoba Oil
Jojoba Oil has a number of benefits for both facial use and for hair growth/care. We take you through how to use this essential oil for both of these purposes.
It promotes healing of the skin in many ways, owing largely to its antimicrobial properties.
The chemical composition of jojoba closely resembles the skin’s natural sebum, meaning it is suitable for even the most sensitive of complexions.
With its antibacterial properties it is also used to treat infections such as athlete’s foot and cold sores.
Jojoba oil can encourage balance within the skin, preventing it from becoming too oily, helping to reduce natural sebum, which, unlike jojoba, can clog pores.
It acts as an excellent moisturiser and is suitable for all types of skin, rehydrating dry skin and balancing oil production in oilier or combination skin.
As jojoba oil is hypoallergenic in nature and packed with vitamin E it can be applied directly onto the face or mixed with your regular face moisturiser and used twice a day.
It can prevent the onset of wrinkles, leaving skin clean, clear and beautifully smooth.
Jojoba oil is easily absorbed and won’t leave your skin feeling greasy, so it can be used in a multitude of ways, as a body oil, facial cleanser, eye makeup remover or even on your hair.
It can be used for body massage, although you may want to mix it with another essential oil, and for cleansing you just need to soak a cotton ball and rub it gently over your face, where it will remove makeup quickly and effectively.
Even difficult eye makeup can be taken off using jojoba oil, as it doesn’t cause eye irritation, even when used on eyelashes and the thinner skin around the eyes.
Jojoba oil can also be used for your hair as a hair oil or conditioner.
It moisturises the scalp, provides protection against dandruff and will strengthen and reinvigorate the roots of your tresses.
After shampooing, pour a few drops onto your hair and rinse thoroughly afterwards, or massage a little into damp, towel-dried hair
You should notice that your locks feel silkier, healthier, stronger and thicker the more you use it.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
