Loving your beard and doing something about it is no shame at all. You can create your own beard balm to select the products best suited for you. Or create the balm in bulk and gift them to your homies because it is really that easy. You know the ingredients you need, right? So let’s see what you will need for the balm:
A large container (to cook everything on the stove)
Box (to store)
Butter: Shea butter or Kokum butter
Carrier Oils: Castor oil, Sunflower Oil, Seaweed Oil, Coconut Oil
Essential Oils: Lavender Oil, Peppermint Oil
Note: You can use more than one oil according to your desire. Essential oils are mainly used for fragrance. Thus, a number of 7-8 drops are required. Carrier oils help with growth, restoration, moisturizing, etc.
Take the large container and add two parts of butter and one part of beeswax. Let both the things melt in the container. Now, add your desired carrier oils according to skin type and needs. Mix everything together and end with adding 7-8 drops of essential oils. Pour the mixture into your storage box and let it rest.
If the beard balm becomes chunky, melt it under the sun. Then, mix it together, and freeze it until it becomes silky, smooth, and soft.
Coconut oil is best suited for dry and rough skin.
Tea tree oil is ideal for acne-prone and oily skin.
Now, you know how to make a beard balm. But do you know how to use one? And how frequently or how much should you apply it?
