essential fatty acids and is used in many cosmetic oils.
Jojoba oil can also be used as a hot oil treatment in hair by warming up a quarter-size amount of the oil or enough oil to cover the hair, leaving it in your hair for five to ten minutes then shampoo and conditioning afterward.

5. Castor Oil
With this emollient, a little goes a long way since it’s extremely thick. Packed with vitamin E, castor oil penetrates the surface layers of the skin, creating more soft and hydrated skin. I especially love to use this oil on my feet after finishing up with my bath.
While I still use some beautifully scented natural lotions and creams on occasion, I’m a huge advocate of knowing what you’re putting into your skin and I believe in treating my skin with the best ingredients possible.
Additionally, natural oils are typically inexpensive in comparison to other skin moisturizers and most are multi-purpose. My absolute favorite way to apply these oils on my skin is when I’m fresh out of the bathtub. I gently massage one of these oils onto my body while my skin is still damp. Doing this hydrates and seals in the moisture from the oil.
