make this : beard oil

Beard Oil DIYThe rise of the bearded male has certainly grown exponentially in the last few years. Never have they been so trendy since the famous hippie era. I personally love the look of them, whether it is simply a bit of scruff or a full on beard. I think that it adds character, much like one’s own hairstyle. 

Beard Oil DIY - 9My husband has had some sort of a beard in the five years that we have been married. However, he really began growing it out over the last two years. This has resulted in more upkeep and experimentation with different grooming products, namely beard oil.

While the effects of beard oil are apparently tremendously beneficial, the cost for one little bottle can be outrageously high. After googling simple recipes for the oil, I decided to make a batch for Geoffrey. It was incredibly easy to do so, and something that I suggest for all beard enthusiasts. Additionally, they would also make a great present year round!

    Hey Em,

    Great post and I agree with the underlying premise: the beard has definitely made a comeback.

    Well done with the manly DIY post and rustic-themed pictures of Geoff’s glorious beard. He has the look of a Welder.

  2. My hubby also uses beard oil. I might have to try this. I personally love beards on men as long as they are groomed!

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Thank you to all those who liked, commented, and sent me messages yesterday. I am overwhelmed by your love. I would like to share one more thing. Since 2013, I have used my blog as a creative outlet and my Instagram account as my diary. I feel it’s a much better platform to reach out to others, and to be more truthful (if we dare). I try to only follow those who don’t always show the ups and highs of their “perfect” lives. While I think that the more popular, beige square, ad-infused, California chic, glam mother accounts are beautiful, I also find them to be depressing and unoriginal. A miscarriage is real. It is nothing to be ashamed of. If you don’t choose to discuss yours, that’s totally fine! I needed to share mine in order to begin my grieving and healing process. I am now a mother to two children. This is something that I did not want to, nor will I ever hide. Yes, our second child came much too early and did not survive, but that does not make his/her life any less worthy. Our baby was alive at one time. Our baby has a soul. Now, our baby has a name and will forever be part of our family. We are a family of four- three on earth and one angel in heaven. So, thanks again all. Sadness. What a difference a year can make. Last holiday season, Remy turned 10 months old. She had just gotten her first two teeth, and on Christmas morning, had learned to crawl. This year, we are mourning the loss of our second child. I suffered a miscarriage this week, and it has left a deep void in our family. This was going to be our Christmas card where we revealed to friends and family our joyous secret. Now, it remains one of our only photos as a family of four. Because of this, I want to share it with the world. Give your children an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. You are so blessed to have them. All my love, Emory.
