Handmade DIY Father's Day Gift Idea - Homemade Mustache Wax Recipe for MenComing up with a great handmade Father’s Day gift can be hard. So I’ve created a functional DIY Father’s Day gift that Dad that’s sure to be used year round. Granted, it’s only a great gift for dad if he has a mustache, but if your dad – or the man in your life – sports a ‘stache, this is a gift that’s sure to be appreciated. I had my boyfriend give it a test drive first to be sure and he really enjoyed the feel and scent in his mustache. (P.S. This makes a great homemade Christmas stocking stuffer gift as well!)

Ingredients:

4 Tablespoons Beeswax, recommended or ( 2 Tablespoons Carnauba Wax)
3 Tablespoons Palm Kernel Flakes
3 Tablespoons Grape Seed Oil
3 Tablespoons Jojoba Oil
40 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
40 drops Pine Essential Oil

Directions:

Using a Tablespoon measurement, measure out level Tablespoons of the Beeswax or Carnauba Wax and Palm Kernel Flakes and place into a glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat at reduced power in the microwave – I have a 1200 watt microwave and heated at 80% power for 3 1/2 minutes – until melted. Watch this closely to be sure your waxes don’t burn or boil. (In warmer climates you’ll need to increase palm kernel flakes to 4 Tbs. Also note that beeswax will offer more hold than carnauba wax as it’s sticker. Carnauba is simply offered as a vegan alternative.)

Now measure out the Grape Seed Oil and Jojoba Oil using a Tablespoon measurement and stir into your waxes – a knife works great for this! Add your essential oils, stir again, then pour into metal tins and allow to cool.

DIY Mustache Wax Recipe for Men - Easy Homemade Gift Idea for Dad for Father's Day or as a Christmas Stocking Stuffer

For my mustache wax I upcycled a metal tin with snowflakes on it that I had from Christmas. I simply decorated it with washi tape by wrapping it around the tin and then applying it onto the top of the lid and cutting off the excess.

You can also pair this gift with my DIY Natural Beard Conditioner for Men. For more great handmade gift ideas for men, be sure to follow my Father’s Day Gift Ideas board on Pinterest.
