Blog - Category: 101 Uses For Jojoba

Jojoba and the Oncology Patient

We hear from clients often about the wonderful benefits of jojoba, one area that we hear more and more about is its benefits for oncology patients. Our jojoba is 100%, we do not use chemicals to extract more jojoba from the seed or to remove anything from the jojoba. Our jojoba is a first press quality, we also do a light pressing, which produces less jojoba, but a higher quality jojoba. The result is a very pure form of jojoba, most of our customers can tell a difference between our jojoba and other jojoba.

Jojoba: Good for Wood

Last year we started our Jojoba 101 series in which we chronicle all the variety of things jojoba can be used for besides skin care. This week it was time to season all the wooden utensils in the kitchen, so we thought it was fitting to share this particular use. Jojoba makes a fantastic conditioner and protector for unsealed wood. It is great for use on kitchen utensils because jojoba is safe enough to eat (though we don't recommend actually ingesting jojoba).

Jojoba, the Perfect Makeup Remover

If you’re looking to minimize toxic ingredients in your skincare and streamline the products you use, consider using jojoba as your makeup remover. In fact, jojoba is such an effective makeup remover that the Blue Man Group uses it. One our customers tells us that her eyelashes are longer and fuller now that she is using jojoba as her eye makeup remover. Pure jojoba has many fantastic benefits for the skin, which make it the ultimate makeup remover.

Homemade Lotion Bars

Lotion bars look like bars of soap, but they are a solid form of lotion. They are extremely useful on extra dry skin and for protecting skin from detergents and overwashing. Beeswax in the mix adds a waterproof barrier to the skin, yet still allows the skin to breathe. Here at Jojoba, Sally recommends using it before heading out to work in the garden. She says it makes it much easier to get your hands clean when you're finished with garden chores.

Jojoba, the Perfect Beard Oil

Technically jojoba is a wax ester and not an oil but we’ll call it an oil in this post to avoid confusion because Beard Oil is the name of the type of product we're discussing.

If you have a beard you’ve probably heard about beard oil and if not - where have you been? Beard oil is perfect for moisturizing the skin and softening the beard hair, making it looked shiny and groomed. If you have trouble with itchy, flaky skin, under and around your beard, and/or unruly and dry facial hair you would definitely benefit from using a beard conditioning product.

101 Uses for Jojoba?

Jojoba is a versatile product that can be used for a wide variety of applications. Massage, aromatherapy, and skin care are the most common uses, but we hear of other creative uses from our customers frequently. Jojoba is also used in many applications that are not related to personal care. Can we come up with a list for 101? With your help we think we can. We'd love to hear your creative or common uses for jojoba. Let us know how you use HobaCare jojoba. If you have a business or blog make sure you include that so we can link to your website.

Use Jojoba to Wax Your Snow Shovel

Naturally we try to find as many uses for jojoba as possible. Since jojoba is a natural product, it’s ecologically friendly if we can use it for in place of chemicals for various applications. Now that we are in the height of winter we wanted to share a use that we have found to be quite useful. Using jojoba to wax snow shovels!

Thank you so much for providing a wonderful product. I have been using your golden jojoba in my skincare products for many years and all my customers (and me) love it.

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!

Janet Walker

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.

I started out trying the jojoba on an older leather day planner that I have. It is in very good condition, so I didn't think I would see much of a difference. Boy, was I wrong! I didn't realize how dull it was until I used the jojoba on it.

Dee

The results were instant! My hair not only had sheen, but totally eliminated the friz!
I threw away all of the other goopey hair gels.

Terri Swain

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.

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

Elizabeth Berks

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...

Laurie

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.

Sarah Litchfield, LMT

Your product is amazing and I couldn't be happier with it. It is high quality which is what I strive for in my own practice.
