DIY Hand Sanitizer with Jojoba

From what we have heard from the CDC, regular handwashing with soap and water is really your best bet during our management of Covid-19. We greatly encourage everyone to keep it up! And remember, to prevent or repair your hands from drying and chapping from all the soap, keep a bottle of HobaCare Jojoba by your sink. Just a couple of drops on the backs of your hands after washing really helps to combat the effects of our current, necessary routines.

Itch Stop Mix

Our mix of the month for May is fitting, it's an itch stop mix for insect bites. Here in Maine the period between Mother's Day and Father's Day is known as "Black Fly Season". These little insects can make being outside very unpleasant, their bites can itch for days or a week. There are many different essential oils recommended for insect bites, we found that eucalyptus worked best here and for black fly bites. Others you could try if you don't have eucalyptus are: lavender, chamomile, tea tree, and peppermint.

Jojoba Sugar Scrub

With Mother's Day a month away we've been thinking about ways to incorporate jojoba into pampering gift baskets for mom. The beauty of jojoba is that it's pretty much the perfect all-natural product for skin, scalp, and hair. While a bottle of jojoba combined with a few plush towels or a robe, it's fun to make a bath product as well. We decided a sugar scrub was perfect, because it can be made easily by little ones.

Sinus Clear Essential Oil Blend

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. 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.

Gin & Tonic Beard Oil Mix

Being someone who loves the juniper & herb smell of gin, I decided that it would make a fantastic beard oil. As with any essential oil, the varieties chosen for this beard oil have benefits in addition to smelling great. Not only is this mix great for beards, it's a great hair treatment as well, fighting frizz, providing aromatherapy and herbal benefits to your 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.

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.

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.

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!

Your customer service is impeccable and goes above and beyond. It is so refreshing!

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.

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.

I want you to know I appreciate your wonderful customer service. There is never a delay in the shipment of my order and I very much appreciate it.

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 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.
