This DIY Beard Balm helps to nourish the skin and can be used to style beards (and keep stray hairs in check). It's so easy to make (just a few ingredients) and so much cheaper than buying those beard balms from the store.
In a small pan, add 1/2 cup water and turn heat to low-medium heat. In a glass measuring cup (one that will fit into the small pan), add shea butter. Heat for a 3-4 minutes to allow the shea butter to soften (do not let it turn into a liquid). like the consistency of room-temperature butter.
Remove shea butter from heat and add to a glass mixing bowl. Add aloe vera gel.
Add pine essential oil to the mixture.
Add lavender essential oil to the mixture.
Mix well and combine until smooth.
Store in tin container and use as needed.
