About the Recipe

Are you sporting a beard or wanting to let one grow?

With the cooler weather, our skin begins to change which means your beard could start to feel itchy, scratchy, and maybe even a bit scraggly.

Which might not win over your loved ones!

But with a regular application of beard oil, you could completely improve the overall look, feel and texture of your most loved manly facial feature.

What are the Benefits of Using Beard Oil?

  • Reduces itchiness
  • Softens and conditions facial hair
  • Stimulates the growth of healthy hair
  • Eliminates dry skin and dandruff
  • Polishes the look and finish of the beard
  • Promotes healthy, clear skin

What’s better?

You can easily make your own unique brand of beard oil with essential oils, and just a few other natural ingredients.

So, regardless of whether the beard trend is either a boom or a bust as we transition our way into 2018, we thought we would set you up with your very own beard grooming oil blend and then let you be the judge!
