To make the infused oil, gather some fresh green pine needles and a few springs of fresh rosemary, and place them in a jar.
Completely cover them with your carrier oils of choice and let sit in a dark place for several weeks.
Once you are ready to make the beard balm, strain out the pine needles and rosemary from the oil. It will be a nice green color and will smell amazing.

Put the infused oil and beeswax into the top container of a double boiler.
Stir it as it heats up and the beeswax will slowly melt. A wooden skewer works well as a stir stick.
Once the beeswax is almost completely melted, add the shea butter. Continue to stir, and the shea butter will melt rather quickly.
Once everything has liquefied, stir in the essential oils.
Carefully pour the mixture into your tins or jars.
Let them cool undisturbed for several hours to set up.
Due to the low water content in rosemary and pine needles, they can be either fresh or dry to make the oil infusion.
When making beard balms, I like to use a blend of olive, coconut, sweet almond, and jojoba oils. You don’t have to use all of those, but I definitely recommend using some jojoba oil as it is very nourishing for the beard.
Make a homemade double boiler with a smaller pot, bowl, or glass pyrex measuring cup over an inch or so of simmering water. If you use the glass measuring cup, put something in the bottom of the pot that it can rest on, such as a canning jar lid.
