Our ongoing series "Jojoba 101" is all about unique ways to use jojoba throughout the house/garden. Around our office and homes, we all use jojoba in a wide variety of ways. It's always nice to have an alternative to petroleum based products, especially one that is non-toxic like jojoba. One way we have been using jojoba is to protect our garden and garage tools. It protects not only the wooden portions, but the metal portions as well. The first step to using jojoba for this purpose is to clean your tools well, sanding the wooden portions and removing any rust with a metal brush is ideal.

Technically jojoba is a wax ester and not an oil but we’ll call it an oil in this post to avoid confusion because Beard Oil is the name of the type of product we're discussing.
If you have a beard you’ve probably heard about beard oil and if not - where have you been? Beard oil is perfect for moisturizing the skin and softening the beard hair, making it looked shiny and groomed. If you have trouble with itchy, flaky skin, under and around your beard, and/or unruly and dry facial hair you would definitely benefit from using a beard conditioning product.
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.
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.
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!
