If you’ve been around for a while, you know that I love making beard balm, almost as much as I love beards! Today I made a great one, and I wanted to share with you! This is a spicy beard balm, it smells woodsy, and clean! More information under this beautiful picture.
Ingredients for Spicy beard balm-
2 tablespoons of Beeswax pellets
2 tablespoons of fractionated coconut oil (You could also use jojoba oil)
1 tablespoon of cocoa butter
1 tablespoon of 100% Argan oil
4 drops of vitamin e oil (optional, but I always include it)
- 14 drops of Cedarwood essential oil (more information on where to buy Young Living essential oils)
- 4 drops of Valor essential oil
- 4 drops of Tea Tree essential oil
- 2 drops of Rosemary essential oil
- 2 drops of Lime essential oil
Place all of the ingredients, except the essential oils (essential oils lose their healing properties when exposed to extreme heat), in a double boiler. To make a double boiler; place a glass bowl on top of a pan, put water in the pan but be sure that it doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Melt the beeswax, fractionated coconut oil (already liquid), cocoa butter, argan oil, and vitamin e oil over low heat until the beeswax and cocoa butter are fully melted.
Remove the bowl from the pan, be careful, steam will be building between the water in the pan and the bowl, it WILL come out and burn you as you lift the bowl if you aren’t careful! Wait until the mixture is starting to cool down a bit and then add your essential oils. Stir, and pour into a 2 oz container of your choice.
This balm smells incredible, probably my favorite so far! I know… this is a lot of essential oils, I added less but it barely smelled like anything over the cocoa butter, so I added more. That’s just me. You can start with less, and add more if you need to.
This balm works best when you put a tiny bit between your fingers and warm it up a bit before you rub it on. The bigger your beard, the more you’ll need, if there’s extra on your hands you can just rub it in to your hands, or your arms, etc. It will basically act as a lotion! You can also just wipe it on a towel or wash it off with soap and water… though, that seems wasteful 😉
