Jojoba oil is extracted from a shrub that can survive the hottest desert sun. It grows unhurriedly and is hard to cultivate because all seeds on a jojoba shrub do not mature at the same time and more than a single harvest is sometimes necessary for extraction. This plant’s unrushed nature reveals a sacred presence to the plant, no wonder the O'odham Native American tribe utilized it to heal rashes, sores, and wounds, showcasing jojoba oil as a natural alternative for eczema, psoriasis, and other skin conditions.
