Are You Washing Your Beard Wrong?

Most bearded men wash their beards in some way or another. And that's a great habit to get into. A few years back, before the proliferation of beard products and information, the most the average beardsman would do was a quick rinse in the shower - maybe with some oil-stripping shampoo, or even bar soap. But these days we have beard wash to help is keep our manes clean. However, as a producer of beard shampoo, we've started to realize that a lot of people aren't really sure how they're supposed to be cleaning their beards. 1. You're just washing your beard The most common mistake we've seen is that some people focus entirely, or mostly, on their beard hair...

New Beard Oils: Samedi and Cthulu

The fact that we went so many years without these two monsters in our line up is simply inexcusable. We apologize for that, and we're ready to make it right. Well, we already did. The Witch's Brew and Four Horsemen fragrances of beard oil, beard balm, beard wash and mustache wax may have been discontinued. We are all sad about that, with good reason. But there's even more reason to be flipping out with excitement. Because our two new scents are like, a billion times more awesome. I'm Not the One Who's So Far Away First up, just in time for Mardi Gras (as of time of writing this, exactly one month from the Fat Tuesday), we have Samedi beard...

Discontinued Beard Oil Scents - Witch's Brew and Four Horsemen

When someone who works with fragrances creates a new scent, it's a big deal. Blood, sweat, and tears go into each new fragrance (figuratively, don't worry). We are proud of every beard oil we produce. Every scent is one of my babies. And it's never easy when I realize it's time to let one of my babies go. But shit happens. And shit is happening, ya'll. The Four Horsemen and Witch's Brew were created out of a desire to make natural fragrances that could not be derived from simple essential oils. I wanted a coffee fragrance and a pipe tobacco one, and neither existed in the form of an EO. I have a background in cooking, so I decided to...

2016 Line Changes

Line Changes For 2016, we've got some big changes in our fragrance line-up. For the most part, things smell the same, but names have been changed (in this case, not to protect the innocent).The biggest change has been in the naming of the mustache waxes and beard washes. When we first starting out, we created five fragrances of beard oil, and soon started making the balms along with them. When it came time to create our mustache waxes, I felt like we were missing a creative opportunity if we just used the same scents in them. Thus, I created "complimentary" fragrances - scents that were not the same, but would pair well with the other ones (Cemetery Rose with Zombie...

Beard Balm Tip for Lengthening Beards

Our beard balm is fantastic for adding body, shine, and pliability to your mane. Scoop a bit out, rub it in your hand, and you go from a scraggly mess to a full, manly-as-fuck BEARD.  But as your beard gets longer, you might start to notice it's not as effective. This happens to me every now and then, as my mane keeps growing. Every time there's another inch or so on there, I start to worry...is the balm not good any more? Am I using a bad batch? Oh God, did that bad batch go out to the customers?! Nah. The problem is just that you (and I) need to use a bit more. Beards grow slowly, and while we're...
