My Favourite Beauty Products At The Moment - October - Jojoba !!

Our world is full of plants that we use on a daily basis for our health, food, and beauty regimes. The Jojoba plant has many uses, however, it is mainly used on our skin. The beauty industry like to use the wax (not oil - although it comes out like an oil and is called oil, so we will call it oil in this post) for an all over body moisturiser. The wax is actually produced from the seeds of the plant.
Originally the Native Americans used to heat the seeds and then use a pestle and mortar to squeeze out and create the wax. Then they would then use this on their hair or to help heal the skin from cuts or burns or any other ailment.
It does have a kind of nutty smell to it, or if the oils are completely refined then it is odourless.
The Jojoba Company in Australia have produced quite a few products that are rich in Jojoba. The packaging is gorgeous and fun for all age ranges and styles. They cold press their seeds to get the highest quality oils. Lovely!!
I was sent a sample size to check out, and have been using it for a couple of weeks now. Its a lovely.....oil.......It really does feel like an oil. Its glides over the skin like a rich oil, and stays there. Perfect for massages !!! I like to put this on in the evening as I don't mind if my pjamas get oil on them. I have used it on my face and all over my body. This brand has the nutty smell, which is actually quite nice. It has certainly made my skin soft and feel nourished. It helps rejuvenate the cell stems in both your skin and hair, which is why it was originally used to help with skin blemishes, such as scaring and burns. This then helps with regrowth and skin renewal.
Because, its an oil, it is suitable for all skin types, including if you have sensitive skin. So if you have eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, rosacea, stretch marks etc this oil will improve your condition. You can even use it on baby skin, and its great for cradle cap and nappy rash too.
The wax in the oil can reduce spots on your body, as it kills off the nasty bacteria and reduces excess sebum to occur in your skin - Bonus!! This would be great for teenagers to use, and it will protect the skin at the same time. This is as natural as it gets when it comes to spot treatments. I also found out that they say its the most natural deodorant too - who knew?
When looking at different products that have natural ingredients in, I've found out that we've all probably used it in some product or another. It is used a lot mixed with other ingredients, as it is the most common ingredient in skin softening products. 
This product is 100% pure natural Jojoba. They do say that if you would prefer not to put it directly onto your skin, you can add the oil to your normal moisturiser before you apply. Otherwise, you can apply your moisturiser over the top if you so wish.
This is a great product to use straight after the shower or bath, as when the skin is damp the oil spreads more easily on the skin. Plus you can add it straight to your hair straight after you've washed it, and it will protect it. Actually swimmers have been known to put it over their hair to protect it from chlorine.

I am absolutely loving the packaging of Jojoba's products. They look colourful and fun and would sure bring a bit of life to your bathroom. I love all the girlie pink packaging, its so cute, and a perfect gift for Christmas !!!!
Have a look at their website and their other amazing products www.thejojobacompany.com. which you can then buy from The One Way 2 Natural Health website HERE in the UK.
