Moustache Wax Recipes

Moustache Wax

In valuable for an unruly moustache, moustache wax will tame the rowdiest of whiskers.  Recipes for homemade wax can be very basic to more involved.

The simplest is equal parts beeswax and petroleum jelly.  Just gently melt in a double boiler, it can also be done in a microwave, just be careful to not overheat.

For a stiffer wax use 60% beeswax and 40% petroleum jelly.

For more recipes and tips on using moustache wax:

Melt and Pour Beeswax Soap

Beeswax Soap

 4 oz unscented, clear glycerin soap
 1 tsp grated beeswax
 About 10 drops of fragrance/essential oil
 1-2 drops food coloring (optional)

   Best done in a double boiler to ensure even heating. Melt the soap until liquid. Grate beeswax and add to te melted soap. No need for heating much above 145 degrees. Too hot and the beeswax and fragrance can "burn off". Now add the fragrance and food coloring. Stir thoroughly. Pour into a mold and let it set overnight.
