Jojoba Oil: It’s a Must!
Posted on November 1st, 2016
Jojoba oil is one of my absolute favourite oils. It’s great for your hair, scalp and skin, and will leave you feeling nourished. I’m a huge fan of oils as they’re natural and provide amazing hydration. Unlike many skin care products that strip your skin of its essential oils causing congestion, oils contain anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory compounds and are packed with vitamins and antioxidants.
I love to use jojoba oil as a moisturizer to hydrate my skin. The oil is very light and absorbs really well. If my hair is feeling dry I massage the oil into my scalp and strands. I put a shower cap over my hair and let it sit for about 20-30 minutes. I often will use that time to go on the exercise bike or while I do my weekly clean!
I firmly believe that the intention behind our actions is just as important as the action itself, so while I let it soak into my hair, I have gratitude for this time for self-love. I alway feel much happier after I pamper myself when I view the ritual as something special to restore hydration and balance. It’s as if each second that I allow it to penetrate my hair I feel myself coming back to my centered balanced self.
I use Desert Essence Jojoba Oil, although there’s many brands to choose from. Our bodies are constantly working so hard for us. Often we’re so caught up in mental thinking, that we forget about all the parts of our bodies that are simultaneously working as a unit to allow us to perform the activities that we love. Self-care is a wonderful way to take care of our bodies so that we can continue living a happy and healthy life.
Love & light. xo
