Beards are just so it right now. And thankfully where there is facial hair, there is also a growing appetite for mens' grooming products.... and of course here at Archeus we have noticed this and aim to please.
We figured beard oils would be a fun thing to make and a great addition to our apothecary offerings. We spent a few months trying out different blends on willing and hirsute guinea pigs and our Apothecary Blend No.1 came out on top. The brief we set ourselves was to create an oil that would condition, smooth and soften beard hair and smell great. Of course, we are not content with just putting a few oils together and going 'ta da!'. We have infused certified organic camellia oil (which is lovely and light and easily absorbed) with medicinal herbs to help condition the hair and nourish the skin. Think of it as Beard Alchemy.
Once we had got the oils doing all the healing and conditioning things we wanted it to do, we added a range of essential oils including vetiver, sandalwood, elemi and lime. This was the fun part and the mental image we got from the scent notes of the oils was of a rugged (but with a fabulously groomed beard) hunk of a man sweating in an alluring way as he steps out from the forest after wrestling grizzly bears. Well, the image worked for us.... you are quite welcome to come up with your own!
