Here in the Pacific Northwest, there are mustaches of every kind – some flipped up, some with a little curl added. If you’d like to add a little flair to your facial hair, this Sculpting Mustache Wax is the product for you! Made with whipped cera bellina wax, this wax is a great firm yet spreadable texture. The addition of castor oil and vitamin E oil create an incredibly sticky texture, making it easy to mold your mustache into various shapes.
You may have noticed more mustaches than usual because November is prostate cancer awareness month. In order to raise awareness and funds, men take part in No-Shave November and Movember by growing out their facial hair to spark conversation about the disease.
Currently, several men at Bramble Berry are growing out their facial hair to support the cause. In addition to $150 already donated, for each participant we are donating an additional $25 to the American Cancer Society. It’s been fun to see all the beards and mustaches around the office and warehouse!
Skin-loving olive oil and hazelnut oil keep facial hair and the skin underneath moisturized and protected from the elements. Cedarwood Essential Oil adds a woodsy smell that is slightly sweet and masculine. Brown Oxide Pigment and Black Oxide Pigment can be added to give the wax a slight tint when used, or the wax can be left uncolored.
Note: The Candle Tins now hold 4 ounces by volume instead of 5 ounces. The kit comes with 5 tins, so there will be enough for any leftover wax.
12 oz. Cera Bellina Wax
2.5 oz. Olive Oil
2.5 oz. Hazelnut Oil
5 oz. Castor Oil
2 oz. Vitamin E Oil
3 mL Cedarwood Essential Oil
Brown Oxide Pigment (optional)
Black Oxide Pigment (optional)
4 Candle Tins
COLOR PREP: Disperse 1 teaspoon of each colorant into 1 tablespoon of hazelnut oil. Use a mini mixer to get the clumps of color worked out smoothly.
ONE: In a large heat-safe container, mix together the cera bellina wax, olive oil, hazelnut oil, castor oil and vitamin E oil. Melt on 45-second bursts and stir often until the wax is melted.
THREE: Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, begin whipping the mixture in the first container. When the wax starts to solidify, add 1 mL of the Cedarwood Essential Oil. Scrape the sides of the bowl and continue to whip. Whipping the mixture helps create a more spreadable product that is easier to apply.
FIVE: Spoon the mixture into a candle tin and smooth with the back of a spoon.
SIX: Repeat step three in the second container. When the wax starts to solidify, add 1 mL of the Cedarwood Essential Oil and 1 tablespoon of the dispersed black oxide. Scrape the sides of the bowl and whip until the mixture is solid but spreadable. Spoon the mixture into a candle tin and smooth with the back of a spoon.
SEVEN: Repeat step three in the third container. When the wax starts to solidify, add 1 mL of the Cedarwood Essential Oil and 1 tablespoon of the dispersed brown oxide. Scrape the sides of the bowl and whip until the mixture is solid bit spreadable. Spoon the mixture into a candle tin and smooth with the back of a spoon.
EIGHT: Wait for the wax to cool before giving it away or using it to sculpt your mustache! To use, apply the wax on your fingertips and work it into your mustache.
