Here's some more recipes from a recent Art of Manliness posting:


Winter Jack-Inspired Beard Oil
Putting alcohol into your beard will dry your hair and skin out, so you don’t want to douse your chin sweater with Winter Jack directly. Instead, apply this moisturizing beard oil with a scent inspired by the tasty combination of whiskey and apple cider liqueur. The orange and vanilla mimic the sweetness of the alcohol, the cinnamon gives it a cider-y edge, and the sandalwood is just a great masculine scent that has a little bit of sweetness to it to give this blend an almost whiskey-like smell.

1oz carrier oil of choice 2 drops cinnamon cassia 10 drops sandalwood 3 drops orange 2 drops vanilla


Christmas Tree Beard Oil
This scent is earthy, but with a touch of minty freshness as well. This may be my personal favorite.

1oz carrier oil of choice 7 drops cedarwood 7 drops sandalwood 3 drops tea tree


Candy Cane Beard Oil
This is sweet smelling, and sweet feeling. Your loved ones will be nuzzling up to your face all the day long, thinking you’ve been rubbing candy canes on your cheeks.

1oz carrier oil of choice 10 drops peppermint 2 drops orange 2 drops cinnamon


Deep in the Wood Beard Oil
This bad boy is deeply earthy, with just a hint of sweetness. It’s probably the most polarizing. You’ll either love it or think it smells a little too much like a forest.

1oz carrier oil of choice 15 drops cedarwood 6 drops vanilla


Holiday Cheer Beard Oil
This oil doesn’t necessarily have an overarching theme like the others, but it smells dang pleasant. The aromas combine to create a joyful and festive scent that is sure to win everyone over.

Going to definitely try these recipes. Some of them seem like we can wing it with trial and error to see how it all turns out. Another slippery slope I slide down here....

Hey Clint, this may be a dumb question, but when you list vanilla is that just vanilla exctract?

Although Clint will have to answer definitively, my guess is that it's vanilla essential oil. Vanilla extract is an alcohol solution which 1) will dry out your skin and 2) not properly emulsify with the carrier oils.

I was thinking the same with the alcohol, but had to ask
