Prevents beard envy… Or causes it.
So, you have a beard. And you have heard of beard oil. But what is it? What is beard oil and why would you ever want to use it? That’s a good question.
A good beard oil not only makes you look like a well-put-together-guy, it also conditions your beard, moisturizes dry skin, prevents beard itch, treats beardruff and acne, encourages hair growth, and more. Our original beard oil recipe is designed to both tame and invigorate.
UPDATE: We are no longer making and offering this beard oil for sale… so sorry! If I get enough requests, I can put together a post sharing my recipe and method if anyone would like to make some from scratch. Let me know!
Try it, you (and your girl) are sincerely guaranteed to love it.
What Makes Our Beard Oil Different?
This small batch, handcrafted beard oil recipe is a blend of five high-quality base oils including grapeseed, argan, jojoba, avocado, and sweet almond.
But while many beard oil brands stop there, we go on with ours to combine these beard pampering oils with the healing power of responsibly wildcrafted and organically grown herbs from right here in the Pacific Northwest. Western red cedar, horsetail herb, lavender, and rosemary (see the benefits below) – all specifically chosen with a magnificent beard and your skin in mind – are slowly infused into the beard conditioning oil which forms the base of this product.

Choose the aromatherapy blend with CEDAR & HERB essential oils, or go ‘NAKED’.
The CEDAR & HERB essential oil blend is our own proprietary combination of quality essential oils including cedarwood, lavender, rosemary, and patchouli. Not at all flowery, this therapeutic essential oil blend has a nicely grounding, woodsy, down-to-earth scent that you are sure to love. Specially blended, not just for the skin and hair benefits, the aromatherapy properties can actually boost your mood, too! …not to mention anyone in your vicinity. Ladies? My guy wears this stuff daily, and I can’t get enough of it.
Apply a small amount to hands and work into beard and underlying skin. Breathe deep and enjoy!
Here is my guy’s review of the Western Red Cedar & Herb infused Beard Oil…
I am not one that uses very many personal care products other than the basics. So when my wife first created some beard oil, it took a little bit to convince me to use it. I decided to give it a shot, in part to make my wife happy (happy wife = happy life) and in part because it smelled really good.
Now I can’t stop using it!
It really is that good. First of all, it smells amazing – earthy and soothing. Secondly, it tames the wildness in my beard. Reduces stray and straggly hairs making my beard more manageable. Not the least of all, it smells really good to my wife. I don’t know about you, but if you’ve ever had a woman come face to face in the ‘kissing zone’ and breathe you in – it’s pretty awesome.
It really is one of those things I never thought I’d try and I likely never would have if it wasn’t for the fact that it was essentially purchased for me. I would recommend this as a gift for any man out there. It may not be at the top of their list, but after trying it, it likely may be there in the future. Just be careful because this stuff is addicting!
