In early July, I stopped by Glendarragh Lavender Farm during the lavender harvest. We are so incredibly lucky to have a source for organic lavender so close. Glendarragh has the same philosophy that we do here at The Jojoba Company, here's a quote from their website "We believe in the simple elegance and healthful benefits of synthetic-free, natural products". We couldn't agree more! Lucky for you, they sell their lavender on-line.
Jojoba makes an excellent carrier for essential oils, we won't got into the nitty gritty of why in this post, find out more on our post dedicated to this topic. We decided to do a Mix of the Month, essential oil mixes to make and use.

We decided to do a Mix of the Month, essential oil mixes to make and use. Since it's that time of the year when many are plagued by colds and flus, we decided a little decongestant essential oil mix would be useful. This mix was developed by me over a few years.

We decided to do a Mix of the Month, essential oil mixes to make and use. Today we're tackling headaches, something we all deal with from time to time. This mix was recommended to me by an essential oil consultant friend. I made a batch and gave it to a few friends & family members for testing.
Essential oils are quite strong and should be diluted before applying them to skin, if not burns and other severe skin reactions can occur, particularly with children, the elderly, or those with sensitive skin. While some people recommend using some essential oils neat or undiluted, many practitioners recommend using a carrier for essential oil, especially hot or spicy oils like oregano and thyme. Using a carrier isn't just to dilute the essential oils, it also helps with absorption and minimizes evaporation of the essential oils.
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.
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 don't know what I did before I started using your product.
It is by far the finest skin care product I have ever used.
The very best thing about jojoba is that is does not become rancid and aids in the integrity of essential oils.
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...
There are some Maine products that serve us well through the sweltering days of August to the frigid days of January and every day in between. Jojoba is one of them!
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.
I’ve used other jojoba extracts and this one is by far superior.
I like doing business with companies that care, and I feel that you do.
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?
