Now here’s a tough question and I will try my best to help you with it. Well, technically, jojoba isn’t an oil, it’s a wax ester and that is why one uses jojoba as a carrier for essential oils. Perhaps, thats what explains why it is sticky as well. Also, I think you should check the consistency of the balsam of peru essential oil with jojoba while mixing it. Maybe that is the reason why it isn’t blending well. I would recommend you to first try it on another patch of skin, other than your face, just to be more careful.
