Growing beard and grooming it well has recently become a trend that seems like it is here to stay. Many companies are coming with beard grooming products right from beard oil to beard wax, serum, etc. However, they cost a fortune and aren’t all natural. Here’s how you can easily make beard wax at home that will help you tame your beard and give it a shine.
- Beeswax: This is the main ingredient to give it wax-like texture.
- Carrier oils: They are used to have a grip on the beard and make it easy to tame the beard. You can use coconut oil or shea butter as carrier oils. Shea butter will help the wax spread better. This will give you low to medium hold.
Petroleum Jelly: You might want to use to get a better shine and a very low hold. However, you must check if you are allergic to it or no.
Plant resins: This will give you a very strong hold, even though there are synthetic resins too but opt for plant-based resins for your beard. Melt it in the carrier oil first.
- Essential oils: This is used for fragrance. Choose your favourite fragrance from lavender, cedar-wood, tea tree, rosemary, etc.
Note: You have to decide what ingredients you want to use depending on how strong you want your wax to be.
- Set up a double boiler by placing a metal bowl on top of a boiling pot. You may also use a candle making pitcher.
- Add beeswax and set it to melt. Keep the flame on low once it starts melting to not burn it.
- In a different double boiler place oil or butter or petroleum jelly you choose in equal quantity and put to boil in the same flame.
- Once both the mixtures are melted completely add, mix both and stir occasionally
- Add essential oils, 1 or 2 drops.
- Once everything is melted and mixed well, pour the wax into tins and let it solidify
You can use it in your beard and moustache.
