We are huge believers in multi-use products, so we made sure that these recipes can be used by anyone, even if you don’t have a beard. (That’s right ladies! You can use it too!)
A beard oil is good for those with newly grown, growing, or short facial hair. This recipe alleviates itchiness while softening hair. The oil is quickly absorbed into the skin and doubles as a soothing aftershave that also prevents ingrown hairs.
(No beard? No problem!) Use it on the skin after shaving legs, or underarms. It can also be used as a facial serum or general moisturizing oil.
- 1 Tbsp Vitamin E Oil
- 1 Tbsp + 1 Tsp Jojoba Oil
- 1 Drop Lavender Essential Oil
- 1 Drop Tea Tree Essential Oil
- 1 Drop Sandalwood Essential Oil
Combine all oils in an airtight bottle or container.
Apply a few drops to hair and face daily.
Store in an airtight container for up to six months
Those with larger beards or coarser hair should use a balm as it has a thicker texture making it perfect for taming and smoothing hair, relieving itchiness, and even reducing ingrown hairs. Because of its consistency, this wax will penetrate the hair resulting in a soft healthy hydrated beard.
This balm also doubles as skin cream or overnight salve that will protect skin and seal in moisture.
