Seasons of Jojoba

We received this note from one of our customers, we thought we'd share her great uses for jojoba throughout the seasons. We added additional notes and links in parenthesis.

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! These are my personal experiences.

SPRING:
Those nasty black fly bites that surround our hairline after an afternoon clearing and/or planting our gardens are no match to this magical elixir. Rub Jojoba on the bites when you come inside and poof the action stops.
(works well on mosquito bites as well, adding a drop of lavender essential oil, or using lavender infused jojoba also works wonders on insect bites-- see our post on how to make lavender infused jojoba).

SUMMER:
Get into a patch of Wild Parsnip? Tame the results and shorten the healing with Jojoba. (also works well on other skin issues as well, especially for those with sensitive skin, check out our post about using jojoba for cradle cap).

FALL:
Keep the summer shine with a Jojoba and Himalayan salt rub on your face and hands. For real! (you can also use sugar, it can be a bit less abrasive for those with sensitive skin, check out our post on how to make jojoba sugar scrub).

WINTER:
Oh, that wood-stove heat dry skin just drinks Jojoba.It's nice to be warm AND supple! And for those of us who suffer from Venus Stasis Dermatitis, put your feet up, wear compression socks, and use Jojoba to keep the itching at bay.

And year round, there is no better make-up remover than Jojoba! Enjoy! -Jan

I love this product. My esthetician had been using it on my skin for years. Trusting her knowledge of skincare and product-lines for the last 20+years, I decided to wean myself from traditional body moisturizers in 2018, and transition to jojoba oil for my basic skin care moisturization.

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.

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

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.

Julie Paus

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

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

I have been using your product for years and I love it! It is the only product I use for the face and body!

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.

Jayne Johnson

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!
