I wouldn’t say my boyfriend is a burly man, but he has a beard and occasionally complains that it’s itchy. Recently, he was talking about buying beard oil and I said, don’t buy it. I bet I can make that. So, I did some research into the ingredients, we went to pick out a good combination of essential oils, and I tried to create something I knew he would love.
It worked out well and he seems to be enjoying his newly moisturized skin and beard.
This beard oil is super easy to make. The ingredients are little pricey up front, but they’ll last for a long time.
Things You Will Need:
Sweet almond oil
Rosemary essentail oil
Sweet orange essential oil
Bergamot and fruit mix essential oil (found this mixture at Pat Catan’s a while ago).
I found most of my ingredients at Market District (Giant Eagle) but you can buy it all on Amazon, at GNC or The Vitamin Shoppe.
Fill your shot glass about half way with half sweet almond oil and half jojoba oil. Stir it well.
Add in your essential oils. Stir well.
10 drops of the bergamot mixture
10 drops of the rosemary
15 of the sweet orange.
I know, it sounds like a lot, but it turned out really well. It wasn’t overpowering and my boyfriend loves the smell.
Use your mini funnel to pour the oil into your glass bottle.
When you’re finished, cork or cap your bottle and enjoy! Make sure you shake the bottle up before each use to make sure the oils haven’t separated.
Since the bf was the test subject for this DIY project and he liked the oil so much, I’ve decided to make more and gift it to some other beardly friends. We’ll see how that goes.
Here are the glass bottles I’m planning on buying if you also want to look into them. It’s hard to find those kind of supplies locally.
