Jakisa Stove & Oil
Jakisa Oil (which means "to burn or set alight" in Otjiherero) is a replacement for paraffin in the local domestic market. It is a socio-environmentally friendly solution containing absolutely no sulphur. (Sulphur is the cause of headaches & migraines when burnt in an enclosed area, e.g. informal settlements, lower-end LSM housing). It has a higher flash point, meaning it is safer than paraffin, and is biodegradable.
The raw product used to manufacture Jakisa Oil is plant-based, a byproduct of the plant oil extraction process.
Jakisa Oil has a higher heating energy than paraffin and is used in our Jakisa Stove.
