The beard has come back in style for men everywhere. When I was a kid you didn’t see them as much. Now, you can’t go a day without seeing a manly beard complete with stylish glasses and beanie. My husband jumped on the beard bandwagon and grew a fabulous beard. It was gorgeous but, the longer it got, the hair got drier and coarser. As well as the skin underneath, dry and coarse. That is no bueno for the wifey who wants to get close to her man.
I priced out some store-bought beard balms and they were upwards of $40, which is crazy! Hence, why I decided to make my own. Plus, no toxins in a homemade version which means my hubby can maintain his manliness without getting toxin overload.
This homemade manly beard balm is made with simple ingredients and I believe the simpler, the better. The less chemicals the oils have to compete with, the better. Men don’t need to worry about a dry Brillo pad beard (you know, those round scrub brushes made of stainless steel). They can have a soft and supple beard you can run your fingers through. Um.......Yes, please.
Manly Beard Balm Recipe:
1. Combine all ingredients except Bourbon and Cedarwood essential oil.
2. Add to a double boiler, melt all ingredients.
3. Once totally melted take off heat and Cedarwood essential oil. If you like the smell of Bourbon, add that in as well. Customize the smell to your liking by adding more or less of each.
4. Then pour into your tin or jar or fancy-dancy holder and let set.
This beard balm is perfect for gifts. Father’s Day, Christmas, birthdays or any day of the year. I can't wait to hear how you like it. Let me know in the comments below.
