I spent most of my life struggling to grow a healthy beard. Whether it was jobs that demanded shaving, or nutrient deprived skin, my beard needed some help! The idea for a company began in the early months of 2016, when my wife and I were expecting our second child. I had been experimenting with essential oils, attempting to take care of skin ailments using all-natural means. What began as a desire to rid my life of dandruff became an intense passion for healthy skincare, well-groomed beards, and local community.
Starting with a vision to create the best product I could, the company began a slow growth. But, as Winnie the Pooh taught us, "some things - 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 client purchase, to our first local partnership, the growth has been both a learning experience and a teaching tool. I was blessed to start this company here, and I have been faithful to return the favor back to other aspiring businesses.
The Blessed Beard has undergone numerous growing pains, but the one that has been the most beneficial is the one that ties us back to our community. I am proud to work alongside, and incorporate, so many outstanding local businesses in the creation of my products. Our story is one of community, from the products that we create, to even the revenue we receive. A portion of the proceeds we receive in sales is donated to Miracle Hill's adoption and foster care programs. The Blessed Beard wants to be a blessing to the community in the same way that we have been blessed by the community.

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!
