> Has anyone had experience with making herbal salves or creams with jojobo oil? How does it preserve when combined with olive oil?

I frequently add jojoba to my preparations to add shelf life- jojoba, a liquid wax, has something like a 100 year shelf life. It seems very beneficial to the skin in my experience, and I have read it is much like sebum in its composition.
