Chamomile Infused Jojoba

Ah…chamomile. Growing up, a bedtime ritual was a mug of Celestial Seasonings’ Sleepy Time tea, a blend of calming, sleep-promoting herbs, primary of which is chamomile. I adore the sweet apple-like fragrance of chamomile flowers (the Spanish word for chamomile is manzanilla or “little apple”) and growing it in my garden makes me, and the many pollinators found on the flowers on a sunny day, happy. Until several years ago I only used chamomile as a tea herb, whether on its own as a warm infusion (tisane) or blended into an herbal tea mix served warm or cold.

Making Balsam Fir Infused Jojoba

Balsam Fir (Abies balsamea). Of our Northern conifers, the scent of balsam is arguably the most evocative, reminding many of us of Christmas trees or a hike in the woods. Here in Maine a common souvenir for tourists and locals alike is a small pillow or sachet filled with its fragrant dried needles. There are many uses for balsam fir but today I want to share one of my favorites: infusing balsam fir into jojoba for a fragrant treat for your skin and hair.

Thank you! I just wanted to say that I am just getting into making my own cosmetics and had been searching high and low for the most responsibly produced jojoba. This is very good quality at a fair price...

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

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I have had the pleasure of working with your excellent Jojoba for 11 years as a massage therapist and also for personal use. I have occasionally tried other highly regarded massage oils and lotions over the years but always come back to your product. It is simply the best!

I’ve used other jojoba extracts and this one is by far superior.

The very best thing about jojoba is that is does not become rancid and aids in the integrity of essential oils.

I love how it absorbs into the skin and leaves it silky smooth, what a fantastic carrier it is for essential oils, that it doesn't go rancid, so my sheets remain sweet-smelling and that the (jojoba) is so stable with an incredible shelf-life. What's not to love?

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.
