Father's Day Mustache Wax
It's true, not all dads sport unruly facial hair. Still, this is a super easy project for Father's Day if the man in your life needs to tame those wild eyebrows or stylishly shape his cookie duster.
Father's Day 'Stache Wax Basic Recipe:
1/4 oz Castor Oil
1/2 oz Beeswax (white or yellow)
1 Stackable Clear Lip Pot (3 pots in one)
Add about ten drops of dad's favorite fragrance or essential oil to make it extra special. Or, split this little batch into three 1/4 oz sections and scent each one differently to customize each lip pot. Here are some great masculine scents. Warn dad not to eat the wax off his 'stache, or just put lip balm flavoring instead if that's a concern.
Melt the wax in a double boiler and slowly add the Castor oil and fragrance. Keep mixture warm-- beeswax cools fast, particularly in such a small quantity. Pour into lip pots and cleverly label.
That's it! Soooo easy and definitely a unique handmade gift.
