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.

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.

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.

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'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.

The very best thing about jojoba is that is does not become rancid and aids in the integrity of essential oils.

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 just want to let you know how much I love your Jojoba. I have been using it for about 10 years now, after seeing it at a massage convention. One year I decided to go cheaper and found my sheets smelling rancid and after throwing them out decided I'd never do that again.

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

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.

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!
