If you are gonna sport a Duck Dynasty Beard, at least take care of it

I found this awesome recipe for making something called Beard Balm – I’d never heard of it, but I can see how it would be useful to someone who has a beard reminiscent to the guys on Duck Dynasty or is trying to grow something close-ish.

This recipe and idea comes from Rachel at transientexpression.com. Its a great site, with cool ideas for projects.

For Christmas this year I made my husband a batch of beard balm to help tame and condition his unruly facial hair. He has an aversion to the trendy naming convention of “blank & blank,” so as a joke I made a label for my fake brand of Whiskey & Woodsmoke. I guess I made a pretty convincing label, since when he opened up the package on Christmas morning he said, “Oh, I remember this from the shop we were in the other day.” I had to break it him that that couldn’t be true, since I’d made it myself.

I wanted this beard balm to smell like bourbon, so I bought a bourbon fragrance oil from an amazon seller, but I wasn’t totally happy with it. It mostly smells like vanilla, with just a hint of bourbon. Combined with the cedar and rosemary oils, though, it creates a nice woodsy, manly scent. If you don’t want to buy bourbon fragrance, you can definitely leave it out, or even experiment with adding vanilla or other scents.
