If you want to look after your facial hair, beard oil is a must. It’s surprisingly easy to make your own – and can be done with as little as two ingredients! If you aren’t using beard oil already, you’ll be amazed by its benefits. Use it to keep your hair tidy, moisturised, and prevent any itching. Apply a few drops of this oil daily before brushing or combing for the perfect finishing touch. It might just revolutionise your self-care routine!
In this recipe, we’ve used the base notes of cedarwood and frankincense. Together they create a masculine, woody combination that will stay with you throughout the day without being overpowering. Of course, this is just a suggestion. This recipe is ridiculously simple, and you can use absolutely any essential oils you like! Make some for yourself, or to give as gifts to friends and family!
