DIY Woodsy Beard Oil

By now, we’ve all probably heard of “No Shave November”, when men everywhere
grow their whiskers well past the point of 5’oclock shadow and stubble.
For some, that smooth as a babe’s behind face returns promptly on December 1st.
But what about the guys who decide to hold onto that face fur year-round?

Dustin returned to law enforcement earlier this year,
so no longer can we revel in the majesty that was his full, luscious beard. 
It’s a moustache only zone around here now….and what a moustache it is.
I’m talkin’ a Super Trooper style mouth brow.

But I remember the days when his beard was the 4th member of our little family. 
In those days, beard oil was a must.
Not only did it have to be soothing to the sun-deprived skin beneath,
it had to be nourishing to the whiskers and elude a lumberjack-esque scent to boot.

Not a problem when you have nature’s medicine cabinet at your disposal!

DIY Beard Oil

Ingredients

1 oz carrier oil

  • I suggest fractionated coconut oil for drier skin types or grapeseed or jojoba oil for oilier skin types.

3 drops each Rosemary, Lavender, Cedarwood, Cypress, and Cardamom essential oils (contact me to learn which oils I use and how you can get them)

  • Rosemary is known to promote hair growth
  • Lavender is soothing to both skin and hair
  • Cedarwood has a wonderful woodsy scent that is very calming and the oil is great for your skin
  • Cypress has a fresh, clean scent and promotes vitality and energy while invigorating the senses
  • Cardamom has a spicy, warm scent and is wonderful for the respiratory system- a big plus since the man will be sniffing it all day!       

Directions

  • Fill a 2 oz glass bottle with carrier oil
  • Add each essential oil
  • Place a dropper style cap on top and give it a good shake.

This is wonderful to apply right after a shower. 
Just give the bottle a good shake, add a dime-sized portion to the palm of your hand,
rub hands together to warm it up, and massage it all over that face forest.

This would also make a great stocking stuffer for the eternally bearded men in your life!

    I’ve been begging my hubs to grow a beard and he is finally doing it! He has always been saying that his beard grows very unevenly so maybe the rosemary will help with that. I’ll make this beard oil for him to surprise.
