Marijuana Infused Beard Oil and Mustache Wax Recipes
Men like to look good too, and in winter they like to grow out their facial hair. Beards and mustaches need a few grooming products for style, and infusing them with cannabis make them extra awesome - THC locks into cannabinoid receptors in the skin and makes hair grow faster and thicker. Cannabis is anti-aging and anti-inflammatory, and these waxes and oils can be used on every area of the face.
Mustache wax is a solid wax that keeps mustache hairs neat and tidy. We make it with beeswax to keep hairs in place and jojoba oil (or another oil like argan or olive oil) to moisturize and condition the dry skin (and lip) underneath. Either infuse the oil with marijuana flower or add marijuana concentrate. Because a tiny amount is used at a time, feel free to load the wax up with THC, CBD, CBDA and THCA. (To tone down redness and inflammation, skip the decarboxylation step. THCA and CBDA are amazing anti-inflammatories.
Topical applications of marijuana - meaning skin creams, lotions and potions - do not enter the bloodstream, so we don't get high.
Mustache Wax recipe
Makes two ounces of wax - light hold. This is a conditioning wax. If you want something stronger to hold twirls and curls, use 1/2 ounce of jojoba oil and a full ounce of beeswax.
1 ounce white beeswax
1 ounce jojoba oil
In the microwave, melt beeswax in a pyrex jar in one minute increments until melted. Add infused jojoba oil (or plain oil and marijuana concentrate) and stir well. Pour into a small tin or container and let cool. Store wax in small tins.
To use: Scrape a tiny amount of wax with your finger. Rub fingers together, apply to mustache and style. This wax can also be used as a lip balm. Apply it anywhere on the face - dry patches, redness and wrinkles - cannabis is incredibly anti-aging.
Beard oil smooths and conditions facial hair and skin for a smooth, healthy look. Beard oil is super easy to make - simply infuse marijuana into jojoba oil (do not use coconut oil. It clogs the skin and causes acne and clogged pores.) and use a few drops at a time and smooth onto cheeks, chin and neck after showering.
Store beard oil in one ounce bottles with dropper tops. This set comes with cute labels, if you plan to make wax or oil as gifts. Jojoba oil and argan oil are amazing oils for skin and hair.
If you (or your man) likes a certain scent, feel free to add it. Not just essential oils, you can add a few drops of a favorite cologne, or even a dash of vanilla extract.
