CanYouHandlebar Initiative Premium Beard Dry Oil (beard balm): Citrusy


Initiative Beard Dry Oil provides health and shine to facial hair with a brisk, citrusy scent. Beard Dry Oil is a premium hand-crafted beard oil, with a twist. This beard balm is called a dry oil because we add just enough beeswax to make the oil solid at room temperature. The recipe contains high quality ingredients including:

Local wax (from Michigan bees), USP Lanolin, Castor Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Vitamin E

*Try our unique Original Beard Oil Brush to apply any oil or balm into your beard or mustache quickly and evenly.*


CanYouHandlebar Beard Dry Oils provide the oils that hairs need, producing a healthy shine that makes beards and goatees look great, preventing dry split hairs, and nourishing new beard growth. Our balm is also soothing to your skin and will help stop itching caused by new growth. Use it from the sideburns area all the way down to your chin, and on your moustache. Initiative Beard Dry Oil will make your facial hair look better by adding a very light gloss and subtle hold, while keeping your beard soft, healthy, and strong.


Make sure you add the Original CanYouHandlebar Beard Oil Brush to your cart, which was specifically designed to work with all beard balms and traditional beard oils. The brush base is made of wood and the bristles are soft, natural horse hair.

The bristles gently and quickly disperse beard oils and balms throughout facial hair producing a healthy shine and ensures even coverage of product. The brush also provides a gentle massage, ensuring the oils cover the hairs completely and penetrate to the hair underneath so that your chiseled jawline receives the nourishment it needs. Your facial hair will not only look great, it will be hydrated all the way down each follicle.

Snake Oil: The Art of Healing and Truth-Telling

“In the world of snake oils, you have to see the world a little differently. Where others see poverty, you see riches; where others see weeds, you see flowers; where others see sickness, you see openness.”

Becca Stevens calls herself a “snake oil seller”: She takes natural oils, mixes them with a good story, sells them in an open market and believes they help to heal the world. Becca is the founder of Thistle Farms, one of the most successful examples in the US of a social enterprise whose mission is the work force. She is also the founder of its residential program, Magdalene. The women of Magdalene/Thistle Farms have survived prostitution, trafficking and addiction, and the natural body care products they manufacture-balms, soaps, and lotions-aid in their own healing as well as that of the people who buy them. The book weaves together the beginnings of the enterprise with individual stories from Becca’s own journey as well as 20 women in the community.

In Snake Oil, Becca tells how the women she began helping fifteen years ago have been the biggest source of her own healing from sexual abuse and her father’s death as a child. Wise and reflective, Snake Oil offers an empowering narrative as well as a selection of recipes for healing remedies that readers can make themselves.
