This type of oil is a lighter oil than argan oil. It's produced from the seeds of the jojoba plant. It can be used for several reasons including dry skin by mixing a few drops into your moisturizer, lip balm for dry lips, massage oil, makeup remover and for hair purposes. Jojoba oil can be mixed into your hair conditioner or put on the hair by itself for added shine and a moisturized scalp. It's also said to prevent hair loss. Jojoba Oil is available online and at natural food stores such as Trader Joe's.
