The magic behind the name…
The word ‘occult’ is derived latin from the word ‘unseen’ or ‘hidden’. “The Occultist” is a person who believes in the supernatural and the power of magic. It is someone who can delve into making drinks, spells, witchcraft or sorcery.
Advantages of grape seed oil:
Grape seed oil is a deep nourishing and nourishing oil that keeps the beard silky smooth! It is a wonderful choice for hair care because it contains vitamin E, which is necessary for healthy hair.
Jojoba Seed Oil Benefits:
Jojoba is a light liquid plant wax packed with vitamins and minerals essential for healthy hair and skin, namely vitamin E, B complex, copper, zinc, selenium, iodine and chromium. In addition, Jojoba helps with oil regulation and is said to unblock hair follicles, which helps to encourage hair growth.
Argan oil benefits:
Argan oil is the ideal beard oil treatment. It makes your facial hair feel lush and soft and helps smooth and moisturize both the hair and face, helping itching or roughness. Argan oil can also remedy irritation by shaving, as it consists of vitamin E and fatty acids that promote healing.
Cedar essential oil:

Patchouli essential oil:
Patchouli is the fragrance of the 60s/70s. It’s intoxicating, sweet, rich and very earthy. Patchouli is also known in aromatherapy as an earthy, soothing and peace-making oil.
Why cold-pressed and unrefined?
Cold-pressed products go through a process of mechanical extraction (pressure) and low temperature controlled conditions to extract the oil from the seed, nut, etc. Unrefined means that the product has not had any additional refining/preservation/deodorising. These oils can also be referred to as ‘virgin’ or ‘extra virgin’. This process ensures the best quality product and makes the oil excellent for cosmetics. The unrefined/cold-pressed process helps the oil maintain a rich, strong smell and color that is true to its natural state, leaving the oil’s nutrients and antioxidants undamaged and unchanged.
Use of The Occultist:
After cleansing, use 4-5 drops and massage into your beard or moustache
Store in a cool dark place, this oil should be used within 6 months after it has opened.
If you have sensitive skin, I would recommend doing a patch test first.
