Irish beard balm blends coconut oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, hemp oil and beeswax.
The ingredients in Irish beard balm are all-natural and certified organic. The balms contain absolutely no chemicals or artificial preservatives. To view my organic certificates click on the buttons above.
Unlike most other beard balms on the market, Irish beard balm’s recipe doesn’t include cocoa, shea or other butters that are used to thicken balms. In testing, I found that butters built up in my beard over time, making it heavy. After extensive research and development, I discovered a way to make balms that didn’t use butters and left my beard feeling light.
All Irish beard balms use the same base ingredients. The only difference between the variety of options is the essential oil used to create each of the fragrances.
When I set out to make beard balm and then founded my company, I had absolutely no intention of making beard oil. As long as I’ve been a bearded guy using products to keep my mane in shape, I’ve depended on balms.
One day, I got an email from a customer requesting beard oil. My response that I didn’t make beard oil was unacceptable to him.
"I don't care if you don't like beard oil, I do and I want some Irish beard oil,” he said. “I purchase your balms, and now I would like some oil, and since I’m the customer and the customer is always right, I think you should make some.”
After I got past my initial shock, I found myself agreeing: The customer should get what he or she wants — to a degree.
So I went to work prototyping oils, and after sending out dozens of samples to my troop of testers, I hit on a recipe that everyone seems to enjoy.
Irish beard oil contains jojoba oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, hemp oil, argan oil and apricot kernel oil.
Irish beard oil is available in Peppermint, Log Cabin, Cinnamon, Clove, Citrus and Lavender.
I developed Irish lip balm, one of my newest products, after I received a telephone call from a worried father. His daughter had used his Irish beard balm on her lips, thinking it was a bona fide lip balm. When I reminded him that there was no reason to worry because the beard balm is 100 percent natural, he asked if I’d consider packaging it in a chapstick tube because his daughter had raved about it being the best product she’d ever used. After some research and more than a few recipes, I concocted one that everyone seems to enjoy.
Irish beard balm now has what others have described as an amazing vanilla fragrance. It wasn’t one I was initially intent on making because I could only find a vanilla fragrance oil and not an all-natural essential oil. But when I got an email from a customer asking for me to make him one, I tracked down some all-natural vanilla and made some samples for my bearded buddies who I rely on to test products. Their responses were quick and the consensus was clear: It was awesome.
And someone let the cat out of the bag as I was developing the balm because I started getting messages from lots of people looking for it.
It’s amazing, but don’t take my word for it — try it yourself.
Our fragrances are:
I developed the campfire-fragranced Smoke Jumper at the request of my buddy Carl, a Forest Ranger whose job is to put out forest fires. For some reason, on his days off, Carl wants his beard to smell just like his job.Smoke Jumper, named in honor of those who parachute into forest fires to save homes, property and lives, is a blend of the essential oils of several trees. I made it for Carl and had several friends, colleagues and customers sample the balm. I gave it to them unlabeled and asked for their best guess of what it was. Just about everyone who tested it wanted to know how I made a scent that smells just like a campfire. And they all wanted more. They also shared with me something completely unexpected — fond memories of childhood camping trips, or more recent trips when they were introducing their kids to the outdoors. It’s truly amazing how a particular fragrance can send someone reeling through time, to a place without distractions and filled with fellowship and family. I hope that Irish beard balm Smoke Jumper will help you conjure those fond old memories.
I’m Kevin Shahan, and I hail from North Port, Florida, on the Gulf Coast. I’m just a regular guy who has a regular job but wasn’t satisfied with a regular beard balm. I wanted to create something superior for my beard, and for yours — something excellent and affordable for regular guys like you and me.
The essential oil used in Lavender Irish beard balm has a very fresh, slightly spicy, herbaceous and floral scent. I developed this scent at the request of my wife. She loves putting lavender in her bath water and lighting lavender candles because lavender aids in sleep and is a natural relaxant. Now she is able to cuddle up to my beard and get that same, relaxing fragrance.

The essential oil used on Irish beard balm’s Clove has notes of warm and spicy woods with a slightly fruity top. Though describing the clove fragrance is difficult, it’s a well-known scent. It’s one of those fragrances that is totally polarizing — either you love it or you hate it. For those who love it, the Clove balm lets you enjoy the fragrance from the comfort of your beard, all day long.

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve absolutely loved peppermint. My grandmother used to keep peppermint candies in her purse, and it was always a great treat to get one. So, when it came time to develop my first fragrance, I knew I had to start with peppermint. The peppermint essential oil in this balm is noticeable but not an overpowering fragrance. While it certainly has notes of Christmas, this fragrance is a great year-round balm. And because of the natural anti-itch properties of peppermint oil, this balm is great for those beginner beards and for those who have dry, itchy skin.
If you’re a Floridian, this is not news, but for those who live elsewhere, we eat a lot of oranges. During the summer, my kids and I love picking an orange off the tree in the back yard and devouring it on the spot. Our hands a faces hold those sticky citrus remnants for the rest of the day. The essential oil in my Citrus balm smells of that orange sweetness — just like a freshly peeled orange. It’s my way of sharing a slice of Florida with the rest of the world.
The Whiskey Barrel balm fragrance is a strong one. Unlike other Irish beard balms that use typical essential oil, Whiskey Barrel uses a very potent essential oil paste. The added benefit of the paste is that its scent lasts longer into the day than traditional essential oils. This balm truly smells like the inside of a spent whiskey barrel. For first-time Irish beard balm orders, I’d recommend first trying one of my other fragrances because of the strength of this balm.
Cinnamon Irish beard balm takes me back to middle school, when like most teenage boys, I found myself in constant competition with my friends. One thing we would always do is see who could keep a cinnamon Fireball candy in our mouths the longest. This cinnamon balm smells exactly like those cinnamon candies. It is strong and spicy but not overbearing — a delicious scent!
Cinnamon oil has natural analgesic properties, which means it is a natural painkiller. I guess that means if your beard hurts, Cinnamon will help.

Irish lip balm contains White bees wax, apricot kernal oil, sweet almond oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, and hemp oil.
Everything that goes into Irish lip balm is just like all of my other products. 100% all natural.
The earthy and woodsy Log Cabin balm is a mellow fragrance whose scent is derived from cedar wood oil. The first time my wife smelled this balm, she inhaled a deep breath and stood there silently as she conjured memories from her childhood. The woodsy fragrance reminded her of the log cabin she’d stay in on camping trips with her parents. Because of the joy I saw on her face when she smelled it, this balm couldn’t be named anything other than Log Cabin.
OK, I’ll admit it. When I get sick, I revert to being a kid. There’s not much better than having my wife rub a menthol vapor rub on my chest to help clear up my sinuses. Now, I don’t have to worry about the rub on my chest — Irish beard balm’s Vapor fragrance can be applied directly to my mustache.
The Vapor fragrance is reminiscent to the Vicks VapoRub from the corner drugstore. It’s derived from a doTERRA mixture of essential oils from laurel leaf, peppermint, eucalyptus, melaleuca, lemon, and ravensara. The all-natural and organic balm should only be applied to the mustache to help clear up a stuffy nose. The Vapor balm is not recommended for use in full beards.
