- 2 oz small glass jar with lid
- 1 Cup Coconut Oil
- ½ Cup Beeswax
- 1 Tbsp Fractionated Coconut Oil or Jojoba Oil
- Young Living essential oils – 25 Drops of Cedarwood and 25 Drops of Idaho Balsam Fir. Other suggestions would be Shutran, Mister, Valor, Northern Lights Black Spruce or Sandalwood- but use about 50 drops total to get a good smelling balm.
Put Coconut Oil, Beeswax, and Fractionated Coconut Oil (or Jojoba oil) in the glass jar and place in the microwave. Heat for 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until everything has melted.
Once everything has melted and cooled down but not yet solid, add your essential oils and stir into the mixture. Let stand overnight to cool. You can also place it in the fridge to settle (without the lid on).
Once set, it’s ready to use! Place a small amount in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together until the balm has melted and rub into your beard.
If you’re looking for some amazing shaving cream, Young Living has you covered there too!
