7 Amazing Benefits of Jojoba Oil

April 16, 2018

We thoughtfully engineered Northern Fir's blend of 9 plant-based oils around the highest quality jojoba oil, cold-pressed from Jojoba seeds, which are harvested in Arizona's Sonoran Desert. Men and women alike can enjoy our oils to nourish both their skin and hair. Since Jojoba is a core ingredient to our product, we are excited to share some of the most impressive health benefits of the oil with you:


Natural Skin Conditioner  - Your skin naturally produces sebum, which is an oily substance that can be both a good and a bad thing. When you produce too much, you could struggle with acne; however, producing just the right amount results in a waterproof soft armor that protects your skin from outside damage. Jojoba oil can essentially seal in the natural oils your skin produces and create a guard to external harm, allowing your skin to be nourished and protected.

 

Helps prevent and heal acne - Jojoba oil by design can go deep into your pores and follicles, thus breaking down excessive sebum deposits and clearing the blockage. The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of the oil help clean and restore your skin, and if used on a regular basis will help with acne.


Hair Repair - Adding a few small drops of oil to your hair after showering will help moisturize and rejuvenate your hair follicles, promoting growth and preventing excessive hair loss.

Chapstick replacement - Soft lips are kissable lips, and the way to keep ‘em soft is with some good moisturizing agents. Jojoba oil is at the top of our list as it is a natural skin conditioner (as mentioned above) and adds a protective layer to lips that prevents dryness.


Sunburn healer - Jojoba is an anti-inflammatory and can help reduce the pain and redness from a sunburn. With summer around the corner, having a bottle of this oil in your bag is not a bad idea.


De-frizzer - With the spring humidity comes frizzy hair. Keep it looking fresh by applying a small drop of oil to your fingertips and gently running through your hair before you head out for the day.

 

Curb your oily skin  - It may sound counter-intuitive, but applying Jojoba oil will help curb overactive sebaceous glands in your skin. Jojoba will keep your skin moisturized, and your glands will respond by slowing down sebum production.


Enlighten us! What are some other benefits you’ve discovered since incorporating Jojoba oil into your routine?
