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.
I continue to be impressed with your company and the high standards that it promotes. Your responsiveness to questions, shipping and customer service is top notch. Thank you for everything.
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.
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!
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.
Thank you so much for providing a wonderful product. I have been using your golden jojoba in my skincare products for many years and all my customers (and me) love 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’ve used other jojoba extracts and this one is by far superior.
Your customer service is impeccable and goes above and beyond. It is so refreshing!
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.
