DIY AFTERNOON PROJECT: BEARD BALM

12642466_794389184020822_6765067228773192936_nAS A PROUD OWNER OF FACIAL HAIR, I’ll be the first to admit that when working on the homestead I tend to let my beard go with the “ALL NATURAL” look. However, there are times when I (and my wife) wish that my beard was a bit more under control and had that “GROOMED” look as well.

Here is an ALL-NATURAL, HOMEMADE beard balm that not only smells great but will TAME even the WILDEST OF BEARDS on any MOUNTAIN MAN.

12644945_794389150687492_5342604065320721900_nINGREDIENTS:

2 1/2 Tbsp of beeswax pellets
2 Tbsp pure shea butter
1 Tbsp cocoa butter
1 Tbsp jojoba oil (Non-GMO)
2 tsp pure walnut oil
1 tsp coconut oil (Non-GMO)

essential oils – Young Living

3 drops of Tea Tree Oil
2 drops Northern LIghts Black Spruce

ADD all the ingredients except the essential oils into a clean recycled soup can. Double boil ingredients by placing soup can in a large pan and add water to pan half way up the soup can. Heat over medium heat until all ingredients are thoroughly melted in the soup can. Stir with a disposable skewer or wooden chopstick. After everything has melted add essential oils and stir until well mixed. Pour the balm into a glass jar of your choice and allow to cool.

Once cooled and solidified, take a small amount into your hand and rub into both hands until balm is mostly melted. Then rub thoroughly into your beard, using a comb if you like to tame any unruly hairs.

By using the above mentioned essential oils, this beard balm takes on a mountain woods scent. However, you can add any type of essential oil to gain your own preferred scent. As a happy user of this BEARD BALM, I will say that my wife loves the smell of my beard which means she leans in more frequently for kisses. ‘NOUGH SAID!
