Whether you’re making this for youself or that special dude in your life, this easy DIY beeswax beard balm is a fantastic product that men will love. My hubby (and his lumberjack beard!) was definitely the inspiration for this recipe. Brett was using an fancy expensive beard balm that he bought online… but he hated the smell. I decided to make him one that had a very subtle scent and made with all natural ingredients.  And he loved it, this one gets the beekeeper’s husband seal of approval.

Where Does Beeswax Come From Anyway?

As a beekeeper, we have a lot of wax left over from when we harvest honey from the hives. Bees make the wax to create “cells”, which form that hexagonal honeycomb pattern. The cells can be used to lay eggs, raise brood, and keep honey that the bees store for the winter. The honey is stored in these hexagonal cells, and when the moisture has been cured out from the honey, the bees will cover the cells with a wax seal.  This is called capping. It preserves the honey for the winter, and keeps the moisture from ruining their honey stores.

When we harvest honey, we scrape the honey and wax from the frames.  Once the honey gets filtered into a separate bucket (which we then jar up and use to make amazing honey recipes!) we are left with the wax.  We melt the wax to remove any impurities, and then keep it to make great products like this!

Here is a frame full of honey, perfectly capped in beeswax:

How Do I Make Beard Wax?

  1. Add 3 cups of water to a small pot on the stove top, and bring to a boil.
  2. Please the double boiler on top of the pot, and add all ingredients except the essential oils.  Allow the boiler to heat the ingredients they are melted, and stir with a metal whisk to combine.
  3. Once ingredients have been stirred and have liquified, remove the double boiler from the heat, and stir in the essential oils.
  4. Carefully pour the balm into jars (I used these wide mouth 4 ounce jars) and allow balm to cool at room temperature.
