Organic Jojoba Oil
Wild As The Wind Organic Jojoba Oil is a premium quality carrier oil, and is thus superior to many of the Organic Jojoba Oils available. This is reflected in the price.
Nevertheless, it is considerably less expensive than some of the better known reputable brands even though it is equivalent to, or of superior quality to, these more expensive alternatives.
Organic Jojoba Oil Uses
Although we all refer to Organic Jojoba Oil as an oil, it is actually officially termed a wax. This lends Organic Jojoba Oil some pretty unique healing properties.
Organic Jojoba Oil has multiple uses within skincare and haircare.
Organic Jojoba Oil is a vitally important ingredient in all of the Wild As The Wind facial oils, and it is also a critically important oil for cleansing our skin and removing makeup.
It is also a great oil to add to Organic Argan Oil and a couple of essential oils to make an excellent hair treatment oil. (See below for the recipe and usage instructions.)
Organic Jojoba Oil For Cleansing & Makeup Removal
Jojoba Oil shares almost the same chemistry as the sebum of our skin. But, because Organic Jojoba Oil is in a liquid state at room temperature / body temperature, it can play an important role in the health of our skin.
The application of Organic Jojoba Oil to our skin helps to liquefy the sebum within our pores which, in turn, helps to keep our sebum soft and free-flowing.
Unfortunately, sebum has a nasty habit of hardening and clinging onto dead skin and other microscopic specks of debris. This causes the pores to block and can lead to the formation of blackheads and acne etc.
Wild As The Wind advocate the use of Organic Jojoba Oil as a cleansing agent / makeup remover at a minimum … but we also advocate it’s use in your facial oil blends as well…
It is important to use a Toner to thoroughly remove the residual Organic Jojoba Oil along with the makeup and daily grime. In fact, it is advisable to spritz Witch Hazel Toner onto your face midway through the makeup removing / cleansing process.
Organic Jojoba Oil In Facial Oils
Wild As the Wind advise up to a 30% dilution of Organic Jojoba Oil within facial oil blends to maintain optimal sebum levels.
Because Jojoba Oil shares the same chemistry as the sebum within our skin, the process of applying Organic Jojoba Oil and leaving it on our skin for a good number of hours is tremendously helpful. Because Organic Jojoba Oil helps to soften hardening sebum within our pores it facilitates the ability of our skin to naturally cleanse itself on a perpetual basis.
Organic Jojoba Oil For Haircare
Use up to 20% Organic Jojoba Oil in your hair oil blend. Other ingredients can include:
*Please note, there are organic options for all of the essential oils listed above. You can find these by clicking ‘Organic Essential Oils’ in the main navigation menu, or you can use the search box, both of which are at the top of the screen.
I have also included links to the organic essential oils in the recipe below.
Wild As The Wind Hair Oil Recipe
Organic Jojoba Oil 20%
Organic Ylang Ylang Essential Oil 20 drops per 100ml of base oil
Organic Rosemary Essential Oil 20 drops per 100ml of base oil
Organic Lavender Essential Oil 20 drops per 100ml of base oil
Sterilise the bottle you intend to use as the container for your hair oil. The best way to do this is to bake it in the oven at 350° F for about 20 minutes. Dishwashers also sterilise bottles, but you must ensure the bottle is 100% dry prior to use.
Place all of the ingredients in your sterilised bottle at the amounts specified, close the lid and shake well.
*Refer to Using Essential Oils for further information about the safe dilution of essential oils in carrier oils.
Using Your Hair Oil
Shake bottle before use.
Place a small amount of oil in the palm of your hand and then rub both hands together until the oil is coating the full extent of your palms and fingers on both hands. Then rub your fingers through your hair, spreading the oil from the scalp down to the tips.
Longer hair will require more oil, so repeat until you feel enough oil has been applied.
Then, using your fingertips, massage your scalp gently for a couple of minutes to help stimulate new hair growth.
You can also use a brush to work the oil easily into your hair.
Hair Oil Variations

All of the best beard oils contain Organic Jojoba Oil. Making a beard oil is slightly different to making a hair oil. A stronger concentration of Organic Jojoba Oil is advised: c. 50%

If you have sensitive skin, or if you do a lot of sun bathing, there’s a very remote chance you may have a slight reaction to this Wild As The Wind oil.
It is always advisable to perform a patch test on the soft skin on the inside of your forearm before using carrier oils on your face.
Perform A Patch Test
Place a drop or two of Wild As The Wind oil on your inner forearm, making sure to massage it well into your skin.
A severe reaction will occur within ten minutes, but it may take 24 hours for milder intolerances to emerge.
Look for signs of Urticaria, (aka Hives), discolouration, redness, dryness, or feelings of irritation / itchiness.
If you experience none of these, you will be safe to use your Wild As The Wind oil elsewhere on your body, including your face.
Nevertheless, always avoid sensitive areas and inside your ears unless otherwise instructed by your health professional. This is especially important if you use your Wild As The Wind oil as a carrier oil for a number of Organic Essential Oils.

I stopped using soap on my face about 6-8 months ago – having transitioned to cleansing with jojoba oil instead, as per your advice. My skin thanks you profusely: no more break-outs, calmer skin and a happy glow!
Rachel Wild –
Thank you so much, I am so pleased to receive your feedback. I’m really happy to hear your complexion is so much more healthy now, and I’m sure you are too. Please spread the secret with your friends and family! Sending much love. x x x

I have used the Jojoba in a hair preparation following the excellent instructions on the website, combining it with Argan oil, Ylang Ylang, Rosemary and Lavender.
I work outside in all weathers and have fine, curly hair that turns to frizz very easily and tends to always be on the dry side. So applying this hair oil which I warmed first has helped the texture and it really does feel smoother after only one application! I left it on for a good few hours and it smelt divine, the Ylang Ylang was the over riding scent, so powerfully evocative.
I also have also used the Jojoba by applying a very small amount to my hands and then running them through my dry hair , this also seems to help tame the frizz and protect it somewhat.
I have been having very dry skin of late especially on my face and I tried using the jojoba with my exfoliating face cloth to help cleanse and facilitate my face oil to get better absorbed, again I have noticed an improvement.
So Jojoba really seems to suit me as an outdoors person who gets quite battered (willingly) by the elements!
