In early July, I stopped by Glendarragh Lavender Farm during the lavender harvest. We are so incredibly lucky to have a source for organic lavender so close. Glendarragh has the same philosophy that we do here at The Jojoba Company, here's a quote from their website "We believe in the simple elegance and healthful benefits of synthetic-free, natural products". We couldn't agree more! Lucky for you, they sell their lavender on-line.
Jojoba makes an excellent carrier for essential oils, we won't got into the nitty gritty of why in this post, find out more on our post dedicated to this topic. We decided to do a Mix of the Month, essential oil mixes to make and use.

We decided to do a Mix of the Month, essential oil mixes to make and use. Since it's that time of the year when many are plagued by colds and flus, we decided a little decongestant essential oil mix would be useful. This mix was developed by me over a few years.

We decided to do a Mix of the Month, essential oil mixes to make and use. Today we're tackling headaches, something we all deal with from time to time. This mix was recommended to me by an essential oil consultant friend. I made a batch and gave it to a few friends & family members for testing.
Essential oils are quite strong and should be diluted before applying them to skin, if not burns and other severe skin reactions can occur, particularly with children, the elderly, or those with sensitive skin. While some people recommend using some essential oils neat or undiluted, many practitioners recommend using a carrier for essential oil, especially hot or spicy oils like oregano and thyme. Using a carrier isn't just to dilute the essential oils, it also helps with absorption and minimizes evaporation of the essential oils.
The Jojoba esters is an excellent bodywork tool (multiple treatment modalities) as well as at home for my skin. I've even used it to mix with essential oils and given it as a gift.
I love how it absorbs into the skin and leaves it silky smooth, what a fantastic carrier it is for essential oils, that it doesn't go rancid, so my sheets remain sweet-smelling and that the (jojoba) is so stable with an incredible shelf-life. What's not to love?
My clients love Jojoba; it washes out of sheets and clothing easily, and it makes my work easier. The absence of fragrance is especially nice. I highly recommend it!
I did a lot of research on what to use on my skin and then where to get it. I know I made the right choice.
After more than 20 years of practice I have used numerous products. The Jojoba Oil is superior to any and all.
The very best thing about jojoba is that is does not become rancid and aids in the integrity of essential oils.
The results were instant! My hair not only had sheen, but totally eliminated the friz!
I threw away all of the other goopey hair gels.
Your customer service is impeccable and goes above and beyond. It is so refreshing!
I have been using your product for years and I love it! It is the only product I use for the face and body!
After 35 radiation treatments I recommended your product to my friend for his burns. Like magic it is soothing and healing the area. Wonderful jojoba. Thank you.
