After reviewing the ‘Orphic’ beard oil , I then moved on to Sea Dog & Sea Maiden ‘Blackbeard’ Beard Oil and I have to admit that my initial judgement was proven to be wrong!


I have reviewed a fair few oils and balms that have had a name that is to do with Pirates and they have all had a bay rum scent, I like many others get the scent of clove from West Indies Bay and I really am not a clove fan.

However I test the products and so I have to put up with it, however this oil was a pleasant surprise! I dispensed some oil into my palm and rubbed my hands together to warm the oil and fully bring out the scent of the essential  oils and I got a warm sweet scent with a slight spiciness and a hint of vanilla.

‘Blackbeard’ from Sea Dog & Sea Maiden contains A base of Sweet Almond, Jojoba, Vitamin E carrier oils and Bergamot Orange, Myrrh, Citral and limonene. So this oil is very unlike the other Pirate named oils. It’s a very gentle smelling oil and I was pleased that I didn’t have that clove scent. ‘Blackbeard’ is a light oil and yet it gave my beard a really good hold and it felt soft.

The oil comes in a 10ml glass bottle with a dripper and costs £5 or two for £8.50 from the website .

The oils are also available as:

  • El Draque– a warm and spicy blend
  • Hornigold – a fresh sweet mint scent
  • Prince of Pirates – a warm and spicy cinnamon aroma
  • Thalassa – a fresh scent reminiscent of a sea breeze
  • Orphic – a fresh and fruity scent, hints of lavender, orange and spearmint.
