For the Gentleman

Being stuck at home more means, among other things, that I'm looking for things to do. My husband mentioned he was using my hair styling products in an attempt to tame his mustache and grow it out a bit. Which got me thinking. And Googling. Sure enough, it is very easy to make mustache wax with beeswax and other oils. I have beeswax. I have shea butter. I have jojoba oil and sweet almond oil. I have lots of different essential oils for fragrance.

So, I ordered some tins.

Today I melted 1.5 ounces of beeswax in the tin and added 0.4 ounces of jojoba oil. We settled on myrrh for the scent, everything else was either too citrusy, too minty, or too flowery. So, ultimately I added about 5 drops of the myrrh. It smells very nice. Mostly like my hives, but with a deeper earthy scent as well. I wonder how long this tin will last before I get to make more?

  1. It doesn't soften well so I remelted it and added another ounce of jojoba oil. Still seems too hard to use easily. Not sure what else to try.
