Arnica Infused Jojoba

For all the same reasons that jojoba makes a great carrier for essential oils, it also makes a great carrier to infuse with botanicals (see our post dedicated to this topic here). Infusing jojoba with botanicals can take it up a notch, adding healing elements to an already amazing product. Jojoba's shelf stability and long life makes it one of the best mediums for such infusions. This arnica infused jojoba can be used as is, for massaging sore muscles, or it can be used as an ingredients in salves, balms, and other products. You can use this basic method for a wide variety of infusions. We will be coming up with a few over the coming months, check back to see our recipes.

No doubt, you've heard of the health benefits of arnica for muscle pain, bruises, soreness, swelling, arthritis, and other types of pain. Rub this arnica infused jojoba on areas affected by soreness or pain. Arnica should not be used on open cuts/wounds because it is toxic if it gets into the body. It's fine for external use. As with almost everything, there are some individuals that can be sensitive to one specific compound in arnica, helenalin. If you develop a rash, discontinue use, you are mostly likely one of those sensitive.

ARNICA INFUSED JOJOBA

1. Place organic dried arnica flowers in jar, quart size is perfect for about one ounce of dried flowers. You can use fresh herbs, but make sure they are allowed to dry down for a day or two. The moisture in the herbs can increase risk of mold.

2. Top off herbs with jojoba. The goal is to keep arnica submerged under jojoba, be sure to leave some headspace for expansion.

3. Cap, shake jar and place jar in sunny windowsill. Allow to infuse for four to six weeks, shaking every couple days. It is helpful to write the date the mix was made on the bottom of the jar.

4. Strain herbs out of jojoba with cheesecloth, a couple of layers might be needed to remove all particles. Transfer infused jojoba to smaller bottles to be used as needed or gifted. Write date finished on bottom of jar and try to use up within a year.

I love your stuff. I've been using it for years and refuse to use anything else. I've tried them all. Your jojoba, is by far, the best available.

The Jojoba esters is an excellent bodywork tool (multiple treatment modalities) as well as at home for my skin. I've even used it to mix with essential oils and given it as a gift.

I also feel good that by using your product I'm doing everything I can to protect the new mother and delicate new life in my care - no chemicals, preservatives, or pesticides here, thank you very much.

My clients love Jojoba; it washes out of sheets and clothing easily, and it makes my work easier. The absence of fragrance is especially nice. I highly recommend it!

Deb Hewson

I did a lot of research on what to use on my skin and then where to get it. I know I made the right choice.

Every one of your claims are true - the lack of staining and smell, the affinity with the skin, and my clients love that they don't get up from the table feeling like greased pigs (my words). Of course, as a massage therapist, none of that would matter if the grip and glide weren't perfect... and they are.

I just want to let you know how much I love your Jojoba. I have been using it for about 10 years now, after seeing it at a massage convention. One year I decided to go cheaper and found my sheets smelling rancid and after throwing them out decided I'd never do that again.

After more than 20 years of practice I have used numerous products. The Jojoba Oil is superior to any and all.

Elizabeth Berks

I love this product. My esthetician had been using it on my skin for years. Trusting her knowledge of skincare and product-lines for the last 20+years, I decided to wean myself from traditional body moisturizers in 2018, and transition to jojoba oil for my basic skin care moisturization.

I ordered one gallon of jojoba online yesterday afternoon and I received it this morning at 9:30!!!!!
Thank you so much for your prompt service.
