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!

    • Yes, grooming is a big part of possessing them. I think that my husband spends more time in the bathroom now than I do!

    This oil is fantastic! I couldn’t believe my luck when I received this as a gift :) Beards need love too….

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
