Father's Day is Sunday, June 19th and Ju-Ju Monkey has some unique, practical gifts that can help dad support his natural, healthy, family lifestyle.

DIY Custom Beard Oil and Manscrub

Come in the store anytime and get the supplies to make your own beard oil and manscrub with essential oils and other natural ingredients. We have everything you need to make the following:

Make some Beard Oil for your man!

ManScrub Exfoliating Scrub
A great exfoliator is beneficial for removing visible signs of stress by reducing blemishes, increasing collagen production and reduce shaving irritation.

  • 4 oz jar
  • 4 oz finely ground Oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon jojoba: Similar to your natural human oils and is easily absorbed by your skin
  • 1 drop Stress Away
  • 1 drop Frankincense
  • 1 drop Tea Tree Oil
Mix all the ingredients together in a glass bowl. Add more jojoba if needed to saturate the oatmeal. Looking for a thick consistency to make a paste.

To use,  gently rub a tablespoon amount of scrub onto our face, avoiding the eyes. Massage it onto your skin and face to exfoliate; take another scoop if necessary

Rinse it off with alternately cold and warm water, end with a splash of cold; pat your skin dry with a clean towel.

Finally tone and moisturize.

Beard Oil
Add shine and body to your beard with oils that will soften your facial hair, as well as moisturize the skin, reduce itching and create the conditions for healthy beard growth.

Add your essential oils to the bottle. Smell the bottle after each drop to make sure the blend smells how you prefer. You can play and add more of one essential oil, and less of another. Do not exceed 8 drops total.

Then fill the bottle with 3/4 jojoba using the small funnel.

Fill remaining headspace with Hemp Seed oil so the bottle is full to the neck just as it curves in.

Place lid on bottle. Shake and the beard oil is ready for use.  The oil may be too thick to spray. If the spray nozzle clogs, remove lid to pour oil into palms of hand for use. You may choose another style bottle with out the spray to work as well.

Give the Gift of Time Spent Bonding

Daddies and their little ones often have a special bond. Help foster that relationship with some cool dad-friendly gear and special activities.
Would the man in your life like to babywear but prefer not to do it in your favorite beautiful purple carrier? Ju-Ju Monkey has a wide selection of easy to use carriers in guy-friendly prints. We bet he'd love to be seen snuggling his little monkey in a CatBird Baby Mei Tai in Buck or American Star (perfect for all of our military families), Olives and Applesause Geek Carrier in Lost Treasure, or the Tula in Concentric, Slow Ride, or Sidekick. We also carry several carrier brands/styles in solid colors.
