Father’s Day DIYs

We are here to celebrate the fathers out there. The grill masters. The lawn care connoisseurs. The kings of the porcelain throne. I think it is fair to say that fathers probably don’t receive the appreciation they deserve. I, myself, find that I am guilty of not showing my dad just how much he means to me more often. The man who lost countless nights of sleep to slay every monster living in the closet or under my bed. The man who taught me how to ride a bike, change the oil in my car, and drive a manual. The man who showed me the value in a hard day’s work so that I can stand in the mirror and be proud of the person staring back.

I think I speak for everyone when I say that dads are the silent heroes in our lives.

They give their all and ask for nothing in return. Today we have the opportunity to show them just how much we see their hard work and dedication and appreciate and love them for it! But what in the world do you even do for a dad? C’mon; they are fairly simple and even if you did ask they would just try to pass it off as “I don’t need anything” or “don’t do anything for me.”

Flowers are too girly and moms got them all for Mothers Day — so what’s left? Tools? I am sure they already have that new screwdriver 5000. A wallet? To be fair, they probably do need a new one but that’s for a different blog. I think we can help with these awesome and simple DIYs! Nothing shows how much you love somebody like a homemade gift. A beard balm because we can all agree that men who have beards take them very seriously. And something even the women can appreciate, a fresh yet savory cologne! We hope you enjoy making these just as much as we have and we hope even more that the dads in your life appreciate your hard work to create these fun DIYs for them or you can even create them together!

Beard Balm

What you’ll need:

What you’ll do:

Measure the Beeswax, Mango Butter, Almond and Jojoba oils into a bowl. Melt the wax, butter, and oil together on the double boiler (or in a microwave in 30-second increments). Once completely melted, add the vitamin E and essential oils and stir. Pour into a container of your choice and let harden.

This recipe makes approximately 2 ounces of finished beard balm. You can use a tin jar or any glass jar you have laying around. Just make sure you have something with a lid so you can keep it closed tight.

Refreshing Solid Cologne

What you’ll need:

What you’ll do:

Melt Beeswax over a double boiler then stir in the carrier oil. Remove from heat and stir in essential oils. Pour into a container of your choice and let harden.

This recipe makes approximately 2 ounces of finished product. Store in an airtight container of your choice.
