Jojoba oil is actually a wax that is liquid at room temperature. If you store your bottle in a cold area, you will see that it goes cloudy and thicker at the bottom of the bottle. This is the fatty esters solidifying and nothing is settling out or separating - it is just that the bottle in a cold room is usually colder at the bottom than the top. This does not damage the oil and coming to room temperature will restore the usual clarity of the oil.
Blend Jojoba Oil with a little Geranium Essential Oil to make an oil balancing facial oil.
Combine it with low freezing point oils like Hazelnut and Squalane to make effective facial oils and products for combination skin types.
