Father’s Day is right around the corner! If your Dad (or grandpa or uncle or husband….) is a beard guy, this recipe might be the perfect gift!
Packed with ingredients that will nourish and tame bristly beard hair, it’s an easy recipe that comes together in minutes and gives any Dad the right finish to his look- with natural ingredients.
4 TBS Beeswax
4 TBS Shea Butter
2 TBS Cocoa Butter
2 TBS Jojoba Oil
4 tsp Sweet Almond Oil
Sandalwood Bourbon Fragrance Oil (HRC version)
This is a fantastic manly blend that works great in guy-specific products! Add it to beard products, shaving soaps, or lotions- anything that you want to have a bit of a manly edge.
Combine all of the ingredients except for the fragrance oil in a heat-safe bowl. Transfer the bowl to a double boiler (or similar setup) over medium heat.
Melt the ingredients into a smooth liquid, stirring occasionally. It will take a few minutes for all of the beeswax to completely dissolve.
If you plan to pour this mixture, you may want to carefully transfer the liquid to a spouted bowl or measuring cup for easy pouring. This makes pouring way less messy!
Add the fragrance oil to the liquid. You can add just a few drops for a faint scent, or you can be a little heavy handed for a stronger more prominent fragrance. I prefer something in the middle so I used 1 teaspoon.
Carefully pour the mixture into lidded jars. I used two mini heremes jars, filling each about ¾ of the way full.
Finish each jar with a printed brown kraft label and you’ve got the perfect Father’s Day gift! Rub a small amount between your fingers and smooth over beard and facial hair.
