I have been known to consume some of the fine products coming from Scotland, but the most recent one I have spent time with is definitely not for consumption. That product is the Cahoonas Chin Sporran Beard Oil.
Essential Oil Blend
It does seem that I have become the resident beard oil reviewer, does it not? This particular blend is one that has kicked around in my cabinet for a few months. As it turns it, it could potentially be a very good option for the summertime months (yeah, I know, it’s fall now).
Why is that? It’s due to the essential oil blend that is used – bog myrtle and cedarwood. Both of these have some insect repellent properties, with the bog myrtle being a native plant in Scotland with some (apparently) well-known repellent uses. Fortunately, it does not smell like a can of insect repellent.
Instead, it has a sort of pine-like smell overall, which again works well for summertime. Both of the essential oils are mixed in the base of fractionated coconut oil, which as it turns out is a very good skin moisturizer. Now, if you are more familiar with the coconut oil that you cook with, have no worries – the Cahoonas Chin Sporran is a liquid, not a solid.
Of the oils I have tested over the past few months, this is actually one of the thinner, or lighter, feeling ones. For application, there is actually a small dropper built in to the cap, so you can get a few drops on to your finger to massage in, or even directly on to the beard itself.
As with all of the beard oils I have tested, the Cahoonas Chin Sporran applied easily, and did the job it was assigned to do – nourish the skin and help the beard hairs to not be quite so unruly. I am also a fan of the fact that it only has the three ingredients – no mysteries as to what you are using. You can pick your own 10ml bottle up for a price of about $16 (10 GBP) plus shipping. Should you want more, they do have a 30ml option, as well as a moustache wax in a similar scent. cahoonas.co.uk
