"Come in, and know me better, man!" - The Ghost of Christmas Present
Everyone who has smelled our limited edition Christmas scent has said "This is Christmas!", and we agree!
We love Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol and wanted to craft a scent that could work well with the Ghost of Christmas Present and harken back to Jesus, the true meaning of Christmas.
The Scent: Warm, Fruity, Yummy and Inviting
The scent profile is a bit difficult to describe because we are using oils which are ancient and most of us have never experienced. This special edition uses Frankincense and Myrrh which you've likely heard of and are the two oils the wisemen brought to Jesus. The best way to describe it is somewhat like a cherry or maybe a raspberry, with a sweet top note of lemon and a warm, spiced vanilla base.
It really just has to be experienced!
This is the merriest of scents we've created and it's only available for a short period of time. Once we're out, we're out. Grab a bottle or two and stock up!
Beard Butter or Beard Oil?
While beard oil is primarily for your skin and benefits your beard, beard butter is primarily used to condition and style your beard. You can use both, and it's recommended that you do in most cases. But, if you have a shorter beard, you can really use either and achieve many of the same benefits.
What Makes Our Beard Butter Better?
As a much requested follow-up to our beard oil, we wanted to create a beard butter that accomplished a few things really well:
- Not be greasy (check!)
- Have a decent hold (keep the stubborn hairs down)
- Condition the beard
- Smell amazing, but not overpowering
Kokum Butter is the Key
While a lot of beard butters use shea as their primary ingredient, we found kokum to be superior in a number of areas: hold, higher melting point, and less grainy to name a few. So, we use that as the main butter, along with shea butter and argan oil to craft a beard butter that holds well, but doesn't feel heavy or greasy.
Each 4oz Jar Contains:
- Kokum Butter
- Shea Butter
- Argan Oil
- Essential Oils
How much beard butter should I use?
For a short to medium beard, we recommend a fingertip's worth. Just get a little bit out and rub it in the palm of your hands, then work it into your beard.
If I use beard oil and beard butter, will the scent be too much?
We typically recommend cutting the beard oil amount in half if also using the beard butter. So if you usually do 6 drops of beard oil, cut it back to 3. Our beard butter has some of the same ingredients as the oil, but will stick to the hairs better. This will also help you avoid a greasy beard.
Will beard butter help my beard grow?
Probably not, but it can make it more full. A conditioned beard has thicker hairs than a dry one. So while beard butter won't plant new follicles for you, it can give the appearance of a healthier, fuller beard.
How long will a jar typically last?
If used every day, a jar will typically last 2-3 months. That's 2-3 months of smelling amazing and looking like a champ. Not a bad investment!
