Homemade Mustache Wax Recipe – DIY

Namaste Crunchy Homemakers,

What??? A DIY beard oil recipe annnnnddd a DIY mustache recipe in the same day??? Yes my friends, I want you to take full advantage of these back to back posts so you can show the man in your life that his cosmetics are just as important to DIY as everything else you DIY….because you love him and he deserves to have some nice homemade man treats as well.

Did I really just say man treats?? Yes…Yes I did…

So typically there are three types of hardnesses for ‘stache wax. All waxes will include beeswax, and essential oils, and depending on the third ingredient you incorporate will determine it’s hardness (carrier oil, petroleum jelly, resin). Today we are going to be using oil so it will be the softest, which can make a nice beard balm as well as a ‘stache wax. 😉

A homemade mustache wax recipe. Great for father's day, valentine's day, birthdays & even the holidays!

  • Double boiler – or candle making pitcher to properly melt wax and oil
  • Jars – I am using a 50 mL glass cosmetic style wide mouth jar from Infinity Jars for this beard oil. Using glass jars is the best and safest way to store your oils and other contents. Compared to amber tinted jars and clear jars, the Infinity Jars were able to keep their contents fresher & less damaged for a longer amount of time.
  • Labels – Be sure to use labels on your jars, I promise you won’t regret it! I bought this pack from amazon & created my own design to print on that I will be using. See below if you’d like to print your own!

  • 1.5 tbsp Beeswax (pellets are easier, but I will be using bars in the tutorial)
  • 1.5 tbsp coconut oil 
  • 8 drops Ylang Ylang or Frankincense essential oil
  • 8 drops Pine essential oil
Beard Colors
Is your man on the blonder or grayer side?? Use white beeswax instead. 

How to Make Mustache Wax

  1. Have your mise en place (all ingredients measured out and ready to go) along with all your tins set out ready to be filled. This step is very important because the wax will start to harden fairly quick and you will need to get your melted ingredients into the tin before that happens. 
  2. Place your double boiler (candle pitcher can hang to the side of another pot to act as a double boiler) on the stove – low to medium heat
  3. Melt your beeswax in double boiler (or pitcher) and reduce heat to low once wax is melted. (You want to keep the wax at a melted consistency without hardening, so if low is too low, turn up the heat a bit. Be sure not to burn your wax however)
  4. Place in coconut oil and allow to melt in with beeswax
  5. Once the mixture is melted, remove from heat source and quickly add in your EO (this is where it’s nice to have your mise en place ready because you can just pour all the already counted drops in at once), mix and pour into your tins or jars. Note: If using jars, be sure to warm in hot water before hand so the wax does not crack or shatter the glass.
  6. Allow wax to harden before use, less than an hour in most cases.
