Type: Gifts for Men


  • ¾ oz jojoba oil
  • ¼ oz sweet almond oil
  • 5 drops tea tree essential oil
  • 3 drops peppermint essential oil


  1. Pour all ingredients in a 1 oz amber glass bottles with droppers. Stir with the dropper, and secure the lid. Store in a cool, dark place until ready to use.
  2. Include an enclosure card with instructions for your beard oil as follows:
  3. Daily Amount:
  4. New Growth: 2-3 Drops
  5. Medium Length: 4-5 drops
  6. Established Growth: 6 drops
  7. Using the dropper, place oil in palm of hand. Rub hands together to warm up the oil, and begin by using fingertips to apply oil to the skin. With palms, apply the remaining oil evenly throughout the beard before grooming into place. Use any remaining oil residue left on hands to soothe elbows, knees or any rough patches of skin.
Recipe adapted from Molly Muriel's DIY Beard Balm recipe . We did almost everything as per the original instructions, but doubled the amount of essential oils to bring out more scent in the final product.
