You asked for it, so here it is!
So many of you messaged or emailed asking if I had any recipes for beard oil… so, what did I do? Well, I did my research and I have asked all the bearded men I know (and a lot that I don’t know) what their recipe is and it seemed like there was as many recipes out there are there are bearded men.
So, here’s a list of what oils seem to be the most popular in a beard oil. We would LOVE to hear what you use and recommend.
- Melaleuca Alternifolia
So, what to do with these oils? Well, here’s an example of a recipe for you. The suggestion is that you pick and choose which oils you would like in your combo, and play with it until it’s perfect for you. So, make up a small batch to start with, and guys – send us your pictures… we want to see these awesome beards… we might even have to have a wall of fame for them. 😉
3oz Shea Butter
1oz Coconut Oil
1 oz Natural Beeswax (use less if less hold is required, but it’s recommended not to eliminate entirely)
Place these three ingredients into a double boiler and melt together. Allow to cool slightly and whip with
1/2 teaspoon of Vitamin E oil and 1 Tablespoon of Hemp Seed Oil.
Add your choice of essential oils, remembering to add them slowly, constantly smelling the oil to make sure it’s not too strong in one direction or the other.
Here are some examples of oil combinations:
Cedarwood (7-9 drops)
Cypress (5 drops)
Lavender (5 drops)
Melaleuca Alternifolia (3 drops)
Frankincense or Sacred Frankincense (4 drops)
Stress Away (3 drops)
Melrose (3 drops)
Cedarwood (4-5 drops)
Frankincense (4 drops)
Valor (4 drops)
Thieves (7 drops)
Vetiver (4 drops)
Cedarwood (9 drops)
Cypress (5 drops)
Sage (5 drops)
Lime (5 drops)
Rosemary (3 drops)
Juniper (3 drops)
Apply after you shower (and condition your beard) and remember that a little goes a LONG way!
The combinations are endless, these are just some of the once the guys recommended. So, go check out the oil stash your special lady has and have her order in a few for you, especially Cedarwood, that’s one you’re definitely want.
