Uses of Jojoba oil

Since this essential oil has no or mild skin reactions, it is used for hair and skin products in aromatherapy. It regulates the sebum produced in the skin as oil and controls the greasy nature of the skin. If you have dry skin it can act as a regular moisturizer. It works as wonder for your skin and acts as lip balm for chapped and dry lips.

Medicinal uses:
As a medicine this oil is used to treat pimples, warts, mouth sores, cuts and athlete's foot. It also helps to cure dry skin.

Other Uses:
Jojoba oil can be used in place of whale oil as it is derived from acetyl alcohol. The ban of importing whale oil led to the discovery of Jojoba oil. It is much superior to sperm oil as it is used in cosmetic and other industries. It also acts as an additive in various cosmetic products especially the ones that are marketed from natural ingredients.
