My husband has been begging me and nagging me for the longest time to make him a pomade. He has been using store-bought brands (Garnier Fructis, Axe, etc.), which are obviously just the worst… full of nasty chemicals. He also feels like he has been having some hair loss. This may be from the terrible products he has been using nearly every day since he was in junior high, or from hormones, or from both.
I had already made a nice little spray for his hair with my handy dandy essential oils to help stimulate hair growth. So, I am just going to work some of those oils into this pomade, and voila! All natural, hair-growth-stimulating pomade!
This recipe is for a tougher hold pomade, simply remove some of the beeswax if you want it to be a little looser.
- 3 Tbsp Beeswax (1.5 Oz)
- 4 Tbsp Jojoba Oil
- 3 Tbsp Avocado Oil
- 1 Tbsp Vegetable Glycerine
- 30 Drops Essential Oils
- For stimulating Hair growth, I used
- 8 drops Lavender
- 8 drops Cedarwood
- 7 drops Peppermint
- 7 drops Rosemary
- In a double boiler, melt the beeswax. If you don’t have a double boiler (like me), use a metal or heat resistant mixing bowl and put it in a pot of water. Bring water to a boil. As the water boils around the bowl with the wax, it will begin to melt.
- Once the wax is melted, add in the Jojoba Oil and Avocado Oil.
- Use a mixer to whip the mixture while is cools. Add the vegetable glycerine and desired oils while mixing.
- Spoon the mixture into an airtight container (I chose a recycled preserves jar), label and date! This should be good for about 6 months. Store in a cool, dry place.
