Oil and Tea of the Month - June

As the merry month of May gives way to flaming June (we hope) our focus changes to a new oil and tea of the month. For June it’s all about our Adaptogen Tea and our Jojoba oil.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba Oil C 1Jpgashx

First discovered by the Native Americans, Jojoba goes by many names: coffeeberry,  goat nut, deer nut, pignut, quinine nut, gray box bush and wild hazel being just a few. Loved by Billy Connolly, it's full of vitamin E and B complex, making it great for dry skin, eczema and dandruff as well as controlling frizzy hair and also cradle cap in infants. Jojoba oil is absorbed well by the skin and is an excellent oil to use for facial massage. It mimics the skin's sebum, so can regulate oil production, making it excellent for oily or acne prone skin.
