Source: Arizona USA Production method: Cold pressed Botanical name: Simmondsia chinensis First pressing jojoba is one of the best natural carrier oils around. I love this carrier so much that I have gone to using it exclusively for all my skin and body oil blends. Because jojoba is actually a wax that is molecularly similar to our own skin excretion (sebum), it is more easily absorbed and assimilated into the skin than oils. It does have a very soft fragrance of its own, yet it takes on the scent of any oil that is blended with it, and acts as a natural fixative. This oil is non-certified organically grown, and pressed on a farm in Arizona. It is made from quality selected seeds. The left over cake is never pressed again, extracted with solvents, refined, de-colored, de-odorized, or de-gummed as much of the commercially sold jojoba is. All of these practices affect the wholeness of the product and result in a lower quality and frequency. Jojoba is naturally high in vitamin E. It is non-allergenic, and so stable that it needs no refrigeration. It can tolerate heating and reheating, without oxidizing, breaking down or going rancid, making it perfect for hot stone therapy or any method using heated oil. It does not clog pores, as does mineral oil. Jojoba adds a soft, gentle, and nurturing energy to blends, on emotional and energetic levels. It is nourishing and soothing, and brings an element of comfort into the therapeutic atmosphere, to aid in creating a safe place to release what is no longer beneficial.
