Our carrier oils include coconut oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, and jojoba oil.
Scent: lemony, earthy, tea-like, fresh citrus
Lemongrass essential oil a known oil to be refreshing and deodorizing as well as uplifting to the spirit. One of the best things about Lemongrass essential oil is its skin healing properties making it a wonderful addition to a beard care routine. Lemongrass has been used to fight dandruff and strengthen hair follicles, so if you’re looking for something to aid in growth or strength, a product with lemongrass may be helpful to you.
Scent: sweet, fruity, crisp, woody-like
Eucalyptus essential oil is commonly used for coughs and colds but it can also help in the aid of exhaustion, mental clarity, stimulating the immune system, and overall well-being. Got dandruff? Eucalyptus works well for that. Eucalyptus, much like Lemongrass, also promotes follicle stimulation. Eucalyptus essential oil can also improve shine and thickness of hair.
Scent: minty, woody
Tea Tree essential oil has many antibacterial, antiseptic, and antioxidant properties which stimulate healthy hair growth.
NOTE: Due to variances with essential oil brands, soil, cultivation practices, season, weather, harvest, and time of year aroma could vary slightly between batches.
Coconut Oil – Coconut Oil has been known to aid in the growth of hair as well as give it a shiny quality. It is an excellent conditioner, nourishing, and heals damaged hair.
Sweet Almond Oil – Famous for its ability to moisturize and nourish skin and hair. Easily absorbed without blocking pores or leaving a greasy residue.
Avocado Oil – Nourishes and moisturizes the skin and hair. Supplies antioxidants to support anti-aging efforts. Avocado oil has been a popular carrier oil in aromatherapy thanks to its natural supply of vitamins A, E & D, lecithin, potassium, sterolins and antioxidants.
Jojoba Oil – Has been used to aid in more natural hair growth, add moisture, add shine, reduce frizz, adds volume, strengthen hair, improves elasticity, increases softness, and aids in the reduction of dandruff. Jojoba hydrates hair from the inside so it works well in reducing hygral fatigue (the swelling and shrinking of hair as it gets wet and dries. This weakens the hair fiber over time.)
