Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)

What is Jojoba?

Jojoba is native to the semiarid regions of southern Arizona, southern California and northwestern Mexico. Jojoba (pronounced ho-HO-ba) is being cultivated to provide a renewable source of a unique high-quality oil. Native Americans extracted the oil from jojoba seeds to treat sores and wounds centuries ago. Jojoba is actually a liquid wax that is extracted from jojoba beans.
