Today I tried my hand at making Viking Beard Wax from the instruction of my good friend PAR from Sweden. It turned out amazing for the high desert here, i have a couple of men to test it for feedback.
I used coconut oil, I know people of the past would use rendered animal fast for skin salves, hair, and beards. I used coconut oil. I use was pastille’s instead of the hard wax I also have. I used pine nut tree sap I collect several months ago on the ground up in an old pinon pine nut tree area, I did use a scrub brush on the clumps of sap with water to clean them. The Tree bark and other embedded stuff can be removed once it is all melting.
For a High Desert Viking Beard Wax, it was important to be most moisturizing. The men who have beards here are talking about their beards as too fluffy, fly away, all over the place, I took this to mean to dry.
8 oz: (4) 2 oz containers: 2oz or 1/4 cup of coconut oil: 3 oz or 1/4 cup “over” the top of sap: 4 oz of 1/2 cup of wax.
