Oh Jojoba!


I have used Jojoba oil on my hair for months now.  I love how it quickly conditions and moisturizes dry strands.  But I've recently heard of using it to moisturize nails or as a natural eye makeup remover.  This got me curious as to all the uses of Jojoba, so after a simple web search I found some of these great ideas!






Things You'll Need


  • Jojoba oil
  • Sterile cotton ball
  • Oil-free cleanser
    • 1
      Wash face in the morning with warm water and an oil-free cleanser. Pat the face dry with a towel.
    • 2
      Saturate a sterile cotton ball with jojoba oil. Jojoba oil can be purchased at your local health food store or online.
    • 3
      Gently dab your face with jojoba oil, being careful not to saturate your face in it. With your fingers, rub the oil into your skin lightly. If you have used too much, dab the excess off with an additional sterile cotton ball.

      Repeat once daily, or as needed, to provide moisture and pH balance to your skin.






      Things You'll Need


      • Jojoba oil
      • Hot oil treatment
      • Shampoo
      • Conditioner
        • 1
          Mix together a combination of 50 percent jojoba oil and 50 percent over-the-counter hot oil treatment to make a pre-shampoo, deep conditioner. Apply to hair, one inch below your scalp and work down. You can leave the mixture in for 15 minutes or wrap your hair on top of your head in a towel for an hour.
        • 2
          Add about 2 tsp. of jojoba oil to your regular shampoo to enhance moisture.
        • 3
          Use as a daily conditioner by adding a few drops into your regular conditioner. You also can place a few drops in your hand, rub hands together and run your hands and fingers through your hair before conditioning.
        • 4
          Put a few drops of jojoba oil into your hands, rub them together and work the oil into the ends of your hair before blow drying. This method helps keep split ends and frizzing in check.
        • 5
          Rub a few drops into your palms, rub your hands together and smooth the jojoba oil over dry hair to keep frizzing down and to add shine.
        • 6
          Apply a few drops of jojoba oil to hair tangles to help work them out without hair breakage or damage.




        • 1
          Select high-grade Jojoba oil. Organic oils boast higher quality and contain the essential oils needed for body repair.
        • 2
          Identify splitting or peeling nails or nails with vertical ridges. Vertical nail separation or splitting indicates a lack of moisture or body oils flowing to the nails. It may also signal an aging process you can help combat using Jojoba oil.
        • 3
          Apply Jojoba oil to your nail plate and cuticle by placing oil droplets on the nail and massaging it.
        • 4
          Coat your nails with Vitamin E. Jojoba oil helps clear a path for the Vitamin E's absorption and helps condition your nails.
        • 5
          Treat your nails with Jojoba oil and Vitamin E at least twice daily. Consider treating your nails more times a day if you routinely immerse your hands in water.





          Things You'll Need


          • Jojoba oil
          • Tea tree oil
          • Washcloth
          • Bowl
    1
    Use jojoba oil to cleanse the skin. Since jojoba oil is non-comedogenic, it can be rubbed onto the skin without fear of causing more acne. There is a method of cleaning the skin with oil that not only clears the pores of bacteria and impurities, but will hydrate the skin and will balance out the oil production. Rub 1 tsp. pure jojoba oil on the skin affected with acne, using more pressure on areas that have the most breakouts. The jojoba oil will stick to the impurities and sebum. Continue to rub in the oil for one to two minutes. In order to pull the oils back out, the pores must be opened by applying hot water to the skin. Apply a hot, steaming cloth to the face until it cools, then wipe away the rest of the oil.
    Use jojoba oil to treat acne spots. To spot treat acne breakouts, pour 1 tsp. of jojoba oil with five drops of tea tree oil, mixing them well. Pour the oils into a glass container, seal the container and store it in a refrigerator. When you want to use the oil on pimples, dip a cotton swab into the container and apply the oil to the skin where the breakout occurs. There is no need to apply the oil to unaffected areas---only apply it to the blemish. Repeat up to three times per day.
    Use jojoba oil to moisturize the skin. Jojoba oil can be used to condition skin that is both oily and dry, and will moisturize the skin without clogging the pores. Jojoba oil loosens and melts sebum, making in an effective moisturizer for acne-prone skin. Place three to four drops of jojoba oil in your hands and rub them together well. Gently smooth the oil onto clean skin, massaging the oil in carefully until it is absorbed. Use jojoba oil on the skin twice per day, in the morning and at night.

    • Overnight Lip Conditioner
    • Apply jojoba oil onto your finger tip and rub directly onto your lips before going to sleep. You'll have soft lips by the morning.
    • Ingredient to Exfoliate
    • Safely exfoliate your lips by smoothing jojoba oil on your lips and then brushing your lips with a toothbrush. This will help dead skin cells slip right off.
    • Lip Balm
    • Mix beeswax with jojoba oil. Place the mixture a small portable container and apply to lips generously.
    • Lipstick remover
    • Remove your lipstick by pouring Jojoba oil on a cotton applicator or sponge. Gently swipe makeup off the lips.
    • Heal your lips
    • Apply jojoba oil on cold sores to sooth, relieve, and heal your lips.
