This lovely Spiced Bergamot Beard Oil smells warm and sweet, with a hint of pith and a woody, spicy base. Know somebody suffering from itchy winter beard? This oil is just the thing.

The base is made from some of my favourite oils. Argan oil is my all time favourite facial oil, but it’s also amazing for hair. You’ve probably seen lots of shampoos and hair serums on supermarket shelves bragging about argan oil (USA / Canada), despite containing next to no actual argan oil (USA / Canada). This beard oil uses the real thing, which is rich in Vitamin E MT-50 (USA / Canada) and has been used in hair care in Morocco for centuries.

Hemp seed and jojoba oil (USA / Canada)s help condition and soften hair, and castor oil (USA / Canada) adds a bit of shine while helping encourage hair growth (perfect for the owners of beards on the patchier side). A bit of Vitamin E MT-50 (USA / Canada) helps ward of rancidity and extend the shelf life of the oil, and it’s also great for skin—helping it heal.

The essential oil blend is rather lovely. A base of sultry, mysterious labdanum and cedarwood is joined by citrussy bergamot, bright ginger, and spicy nutmeg. I find it can smell a bit sharp right out the bottle, but it warms beautifully when massaged into the skin (and hair), leaving a lingering warm base note with a hint of spiced citrus. It’s lovely.
