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).

It is a great alternative to mineral oil, which is a petroleum based product. Our tips for using jojoba to protect and condition your wooden items: sand lightly with fine grit sandpaper, apply jojoba liberally, wipe off any excess jojoba after allowing it to soak in for an hour or two.

jojoba used to protect timber fram beams

We love jojoba so much that the beams in our timber frame facility are protected with jojoba. We also use it on all of our wooden handles for garden tools and pretty much any wooden item that we want to protect with a breathable finish.

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.

I like doing business with companies that care, and I feel that you do.

Thank you for a fabulous product and great customer care!!

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
