Use Jojoba to Wax Your Snow Shovel

Naturally we try to find as many uses for jojoba as possible. Since jojoba is a natural product, it’s ecologically friendly if we can use it for in place of chemicals for various applications. Now that we are in the height of winter we wanted to share a use that we have found to be quite useful. Using jojoba to wax snow shovels!

Yes - you heard us right - we use jojoba on our snow shovels to keep the snow from sticking!!! Since jojoba is technically a wax ester and not an oil, it will help maintain a very nice slick surface on snow shovels.

Here are a few tips for waxing your snow shovel:
Make sure snow shovel is room temperature. Since jojoba solidifies at temps below 50 degrees, it will solidify like a wax and you won’t be able to apply it easily to a cold shovel.

Pour a teaspoon or so of jojoba onto the shovel and rub in with your fingers. Alternately, you could use a paper towel, but why waste the jojoba, you might as well condition your hands while you condition your shovel. When you’re finished, rub any remaining jojoba into your hands.

Now you’re ready to start shoveling without the hassle of snow sticking to your shovel. Once you try this method you’ll be hooked. Happy shoveling!

Let us know if you have success using jojoba to wax and condition any other item you use in snow or water.

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'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.

I love how it absorbs into the skin and leaves it silky smooth, what a fantastic carrier it is for essential oils, that it doesn't go rancid, so my sheets remain sweet-smelling and that the (jojoba) is so stable with an incredible shelf-life. What's not to love?

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.

I just wanted to email to say that I'm so in love with Jojoba.

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

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.

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

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