The Ernest Thomas & Co Beard Oil has a lovely consistency, it is slightly thicker than most oils and that gives my wirey old beard a bit of hold and leaves it looking good.

So how much do I like this oil?

Yep that much!

I don’t look at ingredients before I have use products, I don’t want to be influenced by what I read and so I was wrong when I thought that the Ernest Thomas & Co Beard Oil contained Castor oil. The slightly thicker consistency felt like it contained castor, but it’s not the first time this old boy has been wrong!

In fact it contains Sweet Almond, Jojoba, Argan, & Vitamin E and something called caprylic/capric triglyceride that is  derived from coconut oil and glycerin and I really like this blend.

The scent is a blend of essential and a small percentage of fragrance oils, Ernest Thomas & Co wanted a scent that like the branding was reminiscent of the era in which our granddads were young.

They said it is light bergamot and mandarin top notes immersed with a floral bouquet of jasmine, violet and lily, now I do keep getting slight floral notes but what I really keep picking up is tobacco. It is subtle but it is bloody good and smells like a sweet and moist tobacco and is probably the best tobacco scent I have had.

The Ernest Thomas & Co Beard Oil is available from the website in 10ml for £10.95 and 30ml for £15.95.

The Ernest Thomas & Co Story

This is Ernest. He was a hero, he was our hero. Born in 1900 in Henley-on-Thames.

He worked as a groundsman, a driver and looked after the horses for the local landowner before joining up and fighting in WW1 where he was severely wounded but thankfully survived. He lived until he was 89 years of age.


…was heroic

…was honourable​

…was chivalrous

…was an inspiring and loving grandad

…was a real gentleman

…had an immaculate sense of dress even when he was in his beloved vegetable patch

…had his favourite aftershave and his daily routine…

…it was because of Ernest’s daily routine and love of his bathroom products that would become the catalyst and inspiration for…
