The Blessed Beard
I had spent most of my life struggling to grow a nice, healthy beard. Whether it was jobs that demanded shaving, or just less than healthy skin, I had been having issues! In the early months of 2016, when my wife and I were expecting our second child and I had been experimenting with essential oils. What began as a desire to rid my life of dandruff (and supplement our income as my wife was on maternity leave) became an intense passion for healthy skincare and local community.
Growth and Vision
The company began slow. But, as Winnie the Pooh taught us, "somethings sometimes can come from nothing". The Greenville, SC community didn’t have men’s grooming, and The Blessed Beard was filling that need! From our first partnership and client purchase, the growth has been both learning experience and teaching tool. I was blessed to start this company here, and I have been faithful to return the favor back to other aspiring businesses.
Mission Statement: encourage gentlemanly behavior in every aspect of life
Vision Statement: steward our gifts through quality products, community encouragement, & business engagement

I was the person behind the business. Overtime, my team has become more proficient, as have my methods, and the product has developed organically. My family is my team, and each of them play an integral role in The Blessed Beard's life!

What Sets The Blessed Beard Apart?
The Blessed Beard has a foundation of four main pillars that guide our business decisions, and the life of the business in general. Those pillars are:
My faith in Christ is what spurs me onward, and to treat everyone with the dignity, respect, and honor they deserve. My beliefs push me to be the best I can be and deliver the best to you! The Blessed Beard is also a supporter of the Greenville ministry, Miracle Hill. A portion of all proceeds are donated to the Miracle Hill adoption and foster care programs.
The Blessed Beard was created out of a desire to use natural means to tackle dry skin issues. It grew into the business it is today thanks to friends, local businesses, and God’s blessings! My ingredients are 100% natural, staying away from any fragrance oils, parabens, sulfates, or anything else synthetic.
When I make these aromatic concoctions, I choose to be different. Most companies out there make scents with 2-4 fragrances combined. Here at The Blessed Beard my blends can be anywhere between seven to twenty or more essential oils. And everything you smell is an all-natural essential oil, none of that chemical stuff! Choosing to make blends like this creates scents that are very robust; built similar to a cologne! You get harmonies: high, middle, and low notes in the scents! These blends will last all day long!
Whatever I can, I get local. All my labels, my stickers, my Greenville Grooming ingredients, beeswax, olive oil, shirts, engraving, and some upcoming products are sourced right here in Greenville SC! By purchasing my ingredients locally, I am able to give back to other local artisans! This drives forward my desire to be a force for the Kingdom in my community! For every purchase made, whether online or at a show, The Blessed Beard will donate a portion of the profit to local Greenville ministry Miracle Hill. Greenville is the city that helped grow this small business, and I want to help out as best that I can!
