Whether you have a burly full blooded (and bearded) lumberjack on your hands, a tough guy with a neatly trimmed goatee, or someone in between - he can benefit from the softening and conditioning quality of this homemade beard oil. It is great way to tame rough, scratchy beards, split ends, and even help fill it in. Using high quality essential oils in a carrier oil is much better for your skin and hair than store bought that are made up of drying alcohol and artificial fragrances and colors. You can use any essential oil scents that you prefer, I think this one creates a very delicious man smell, and they are all great for facial hair health, appearance, and growth.

Glass Bottle - I got really creative and frugal here and I upcycled an empty, clean small whiskey bottle - Use a little Orange Essential Oil (or goo-gone) to remove the label. Or you could purchase a set of glass bottles like these beautiful Cobalt Bottles.
Combine all ingredients except essential oils in some type of glass container with an air tight lid. Something with a small opening works best, a little goes a long way.
Shake to combine.
Add a couple drops each and shake again,smell.
Keep adding oil until it smells good to you, especially if it’s for your hubby you are the best judge of the scent strength!
