When studying the waxy depths of a tin of beard balm, it is entirely understandable that there is significant confusion regarding its application. We at the Institute for Everyday Obscure and Useful Items have created a handy how-to pamphlet for your reference whenever you come face to face with this semi-solid, smelly and enigmatic substance.
Preparing Beard Balm For Use
Since it arrives in its mostly solid state, you must prepare the balm before use.
- Get out the turkey fryer from last Thanksgiving and place it in the middle of the yard. Hook up the propane and set the flame to high.
- Open 50 tins of the balm. It’s best to ready a large quantitty of the stuff at a time since you will need to cover an extensive area.
- Drop into vat and bring to a slow boil. This should take about an hour or so. Keep stirring so it doesn’t stick to the sides of the pot.
- Once entire amount is liquid carefully pour into 50 silicon molds 1/2″ H x 3″ W x 5″ L.
- Let sit for about one hour until it is back to its fairly solid point that you started with.
Apply Beard Balm
You will want several assistants to help you get an even application. Use steady strokes across the flat surface. No dry time is required.

- Poodles: Surprisingly, the stuff is capable of taming those small, tight curls resulting in a chic, modern appearance for your favorite pet. Apply with a spray nozzle.
- Bottling Factories: When used on rollers at the manufacturing level, product will slip right along, improving overall speed. You might want to duck at the end of the line.
