 It's a plant that can grow in many semi-arid regions of the world, 
requires little water and maintenance and yields a crop of seeds that 
have many uses. The seed-oil has been used in lubricants, cosmetics, 
pharmaceuticals and as a replacement for sperm oil in manufacturing 
of inks, varnishes, waxes, detergents, resins and plastics. In this era 
of dwindling natural resources and increased concern for the environment, 
maybe jojoba's time is now.
