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.

I bought your product... and my husband thought it was just another product I had to have - now he uses it all the time and reminded me when we're running low. So we both think it's great. Thanks.

We have been using Hobacare for nearly two years now and have found our family's skin is amazing looking - which is truly a feat considering the eczema and dry skin that so plagues us!

I've been a masseuse for eleven years and your jojoba extract is the best stuff I've ever used! It's economical, clean, and every one of my clients like it.

After 35 radiation treatments I recommended your product to my friend for his burns. Like magic it is soothing and healing the area. Wonderful jojoba. Thank you.

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've ordered jojoba before and your jojoba is leaps and bounds above any other. I could immediately feel the difference in the way it looks, smells & feels on my skin. The first thought in my head was that this is truly an elegant product. I'm glad I purchased it.

I have been using your product for years and I love it! It is the only product I use for the face and body!

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.
