The Jatoba wood, darkens when leaving exposed to light, passing oil helps to darken, Using sodium bicarbonate with a little water and wiping with a cloth darkens even faster, simple as that.

I tried with baking soda and the result was quite dissapointing,
Oiling it gives a nice dark reddish tone to it while baking soda gave a dark brown not good looking

It becomes reddish because the wood is still new, over time and exposure to light will darken. I have this wood at home, but I don't like the color, even dark.
I live in Brazil and I know this wood well, we don't like its color and there are other, much more beautiful woods for instruments, however it is suitable for instruments, I just don't consider it beautiful, it is the wood for second line guitars.
