Jojoba oil can be applied straight onto the skin or can be used as a carrier oil for other, more potent oils.
Hair: Just massage a few drops into the scalp or add a few drops or 1-2 tablespoons of jojoba oil to a hair conditioner to enhance its softening and moisturizing abilities. Use on wet or dry hair. Use it as an overnight mask for split ends.
Body: Use on its own, or add a few drops to your favorite moisturizer. Add a few drops to rough cuticles. Rub a quarter sized amount into sunburnt areas to reduce inflammation and soothe the skin.
Face: Apply five drops to your face in the morning and night after cleansing. It will absorb quickly and you don’t need to rinse any off. For dry lips, infuse it with your lip balm or use on its own.
