All By Myself: Beard Balm

Updated: Jul 2, 2020


This is the first installment of "All By Myself" where I take lots of other people's direction from the internet, evaluate it's quality, and do something all by myself. First up, Beard Balm.

Why do this myself? It's expensive online, I use it everyday, I think I can master it pretty quickly so why not. I have tried it before with varying levels of success. One time it was fantastic and smelled great and one time I somehow made a candle.

The ingredients:

1 oz Shea Butter

1 oz Coco butter

1 oz Beeswax

4(ish) oz Carrier Oils: Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil, Grapeseed Oil, and Almond Oil

However many drops come out at a time Essential Oils (Lavender, Peppermint, Rosemary, Sweet Orange, Tea Tree, Lemon, Lime, Clary Sage, Spearmint, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, Pink Grapefruit, Bergamont, and Dark Patchiouli.)

I split the essential oils into three groups

The ones I like: (Lavender, Peppermint, Rosemary, Sweet Orange, Tea Tree, Lemon, Lime, Spearmint, Eucalyptus, Pink Grapefruit, .)

The one I don't: Cinnamon Bark

The "I Don't Know What Smell This Is" group: Clary Sage, Bergamont, and Dark Patchouli

Mix all the ingredients together and melt on low (no essential oils yet)

I wanted to experiment with scents so I split up the beard balm into four batches. Watch the video below to see the four scent combinations I tried!

Maybe you wanted the video maybe not, the four scent combinations are as follows:

Bergamont and Dark Patchouli

Cinnamon Bark and Eucalyptus

Tea Tree and Lavender

Spearmint, Lemon, Lime, and Pink Grapefruit

(The Citrus Stew Blend)

.

.

I thought I was done until I remember I had this monstrosity of beard balm

Never fear, I melted it down, added some more carrier oils, and made a new batch with the essential oils that I did not use in the first four batches.

Only time will tell what "Clary Sage, Peppermint, Rosemary, Sweet Orange" beard balm will smell like

Although I have not tried or smelled any of the beard balm as it is cooling I think the process went pretty well.

Stew's Beard Balm 10/10 would recommend

Special shout out to Meredith for supplying the jam jar that I bought
