Our #LEVOmade infusion combines dried sandalwood and lemongrass for a crisp and clean scent sure to beautify and protect the beard. In both Aryuvedic and traditional Chinese medicine, sandalwood is believed to be beneficial in encouraging mental clarity and relaxation. With anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties, sandalwood is also a natural astringent while Lemongrass can help prevent the growth of bacteria, which our bearded friends see as a top priority.
Moisturizing Beard Oil With Sandalwood & Lemongrass
Learn how to make your own moisturizing beard oil with this simple, nourishing recipe. We use sandalwood and lemongrass to promote mental clarity and relaxation.
3/4 cup sweet almond oil
1/2 cup apricot oil
1/2 cup jojoba oil
2 tsp tea tree oil
2-3 Tbsp dried sandalwood
2-3 Tbsp dried lemongrass
Empty amber colored glass dropper bottle containers *Try out different sizes for personal use, travel, or gifting! The amber colored glass helps keep out harmful light rays to keep your beard oil fresh for longer.
Chop up the dried sandalwood and lemongrass into ~1/4 inch strips, and pack the LEVO Herb Pod with a combined 3-5 tbsp of the mixture, or at least half way full. You can add even more herbs to the Herb Pod depending on how fragrant you want the final result to be, as long as the ingredients are submerged in the oil during the infusion cycle.
Place the packed Herb Pod inside the LEVO reservoir and ensure correct placement of the silicone stirrer at the bottom. Pour in the sweet almond oil, apricot oil, and jojoba oil.
Begin an Infuse cycle at 175ºF for 30 minutes, and dispense into a clean container when finished. Leave to chill.
In the container holding your #LEVOmade infusion, add the tea tree oil and mix well. Pour your fresh beard oil into the glass dropper container(s) of your choice.
To use, drop 2-3 drops (or as needed) to palms and comb through your beard using just your fingers.
