I love reviewing new natural and organic products. This jojoba oil from Eden’s Semilla comes directly from this young U.S. based company selling natural oils and serums. It’s cold pressed and unrefined. We all know that means good quality, but how exactly? Well, the best oils are cold pressed. Using a careful pressing or grinding procedure and ensuring that the temperature remains below 49°C. This is in order to retain the natural ingredients of the seeds.
Used first by Native Americans to treat wounds, jojoba is a fantastic multi-purpose moisturising oil. Among other benefits it helps to control oily and acne prone skin and can help with eczema, hair loss, even sunburn. It’s antimicrobial properties prevent the growth of some bacterial and fungal microbes that attack the skin. Jojoba oil contains vitamin E and B complex, chromium, copper, zinc and iodine.
I used the jojoba oil as a hair treatment, as my fine and long hair is unfortunately getting even more thinner as hair usually does a few month after giving birth. Using two methods in the past two weeks, I can report very good results.
Method Nr. 1: mixing the oil with hair conditioner and leaving it on for 8-10 minutes. Only mix a drop maybe two, especially if you have fine hair, otherwise too much oil can make your hair look greasy.
Method Nr. 2: treating only the ends with 2 drops of oil and applying it on wet hair. Leave it air dry for 15 minutes.
After 4-5 treatments you should see the results, like me: my hair looks shinier, healthier and hydrated without making it greasy looking.
The packaging resembles Nature’s colours. You can tell just by looking at it, that it must be a natural, organic product hiding in the box. The oil comes in a dark brown glass bottle, as that’s the best way to store precious oils and serums and keep them away from direct sunlight. The bottle has a stopper but you also receive a dropper, you can decide which one is more convenient for you to use. The oil is soft and thick. It smells like any unscented natural product: raw and loud, but that’s the deal with them. The more you use them, the more you associate them with all the goodness they offer and find it actually nice smelling.
