    You are a WEALTH of info — keep it coming!
    btw I’m still slathering myself in coconut oil


    • Me too (in regards to coconut oil!) I have also used a combo of castor oil and jojoba oil to WASH my face!! This is great for my oily skin, and it sounds like it would make it oilier….but it doesn’t! It makes it super soft!!! Blessings!

    nrefined jojoba oil appears as a clear golden liquid at room temperature with a slightly nutty odor. Refined jojoba oil is colorless and odorless. The melting point of jojoba oil is approximately 10°C[2] and the iodine value is approximately 80.[3] Jojoba oil is relatively shelf-stable when compared with other vegetable oils mainly because it does not contain triglycerides, unlike most other vegetable oils such as grape seed oil and coconut oil.*
