Make this Easy DIY Gift for Him: Beard Butter

diy gift for him

I’ve been making beard butter for my boyfriend for a few years. I made a new batch for him this weekend, and since it’s the holidays I thought it would be cool to share how I make homemade beard butter as a DIY gift idea for him. I typically use whatever vegetable butter and oils I have in my cabinet to create a unique blend. In this recipe, I am using shea butter, sweet almond oil, and rosemary and peppermint essential oils. 

Note: if you have allergies to any ingredients listed, refrain from this DIY recipe.

100% natural African shea butter

Shea butter benefits

Moisturizes and repairs hair and skin and provides anti-aging and restorative benefits. 

Sweet almond oil benefits

Keeps skin and hair soft and hydrated. Rich in Vitamin E, sweet almond oil is full of anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties (source

Rosemary essential oil benefits

Stimulates hair growth, de-stressor and mood enhancer. 

Peppermint essential oil benefits

Increases circulation, soothes inflammation/itchy skin. 

Shea butter in a bowl

DIY Gift for Him: Beard Butter




Clean glass jar 


Shea butter (¼ cup)

Sweet almond oil (1 teaspoon)

Rosemary essential oil (5 drops)

Peppermint essential oil (5 drops)

Shea butter melting down using the double boiler method


Meltdown the shea butter, using a double boiler method. (Easy double boiler method: boil some water and pour it into a bowl.)

Put shea butter in a separate bowl, and place it on top of the bowl of hot water. 

After the shea butter melts down, add a teaspoon of sweet almond oil, and several drops each of rosemary and peppermint essential oils. 

Mix well, and transfer to a clean storage jar. A little goes a long way; a 2-ounce container lasts 3-4 months.
