DIY: Coconut, Balsam BEE’rd Balm

diy coconut balsam beard balm

I finally tried making our own homemade DIY: Coconut, Balsam BEE’rd Balm and I have to say I think it turned out wonderful.  I confess that it did take me a bit to convince the Viking in my life that he needed to try this too. It also makes a great cuticle moisturizer if I do say so myself.  It was actually my husband’s idea to do the play on the word “Bee” in the title.  I love it and think it’s so fun!

DIY: Coconut, Balsam BEE’rd Balm

Makes about a dozen 2″ tins


  • 6 oz. Beeswax
  • 6 oz. Coconut Oil
  • 5 Capsules Vitamin E Oil
  • 6 oz. Shea Butter or Cocoa Butter or you could do a blend of both you may have to play with this proportion until you find a happy medium for you!
  • 13 drops of rosemary essential oil
  • 7 drops of balsam fir essential oil


  • In a double boiler or very thick cast iron pot (NOTE:  you have to worry about flash point with beeswax) heat your beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil up until all of it is melted.
  •  Lastly shake 20 drops of the essential oil of your choice into the beard balm mixture.
  • Pour mixture into tins and let cool

Place molds over aluminum foil so you can reuse any excess.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and these make great gifts if I do say so myself.  As you all know, I’m a huge fan of homemade gifts, they are my favorite!

I wish you all a beautiful week!  Until next time!
