We went to visit some friends in West Virginia this weekend, and decided to come bearing gifts. One of the friends we were visiting sports an impressive amount of facial hair, and the last time we visited we talked in length about Beard Lube, a product which softens and conditions facial hair. I decided to try my hand at my own beard lube before we left. I used the following recipe, which turned out to be more of a wax than anything else. The bearded could use it to soften facial hair before a shave or on a dry beard to add a little glisten… Honestly, I’m more proud of the beard stamp I carved than the beard lube itself.
- 1/4 c beeswax beads
- 1/4 C olive oil
- 3 tablespoons soy milk
- 10 drops eucalyptus oil
- 5 drops spearmint oil
combine wax and oil in a small saucepan and heat on medium heat until beeswax beads are melted. add remaining three ingredients and warm over low heat for 30 minutes. transfer into a seal-able container and let set before capping.
