The Castle - Special Edition - Organic Beard Oil by Honestley Cambridge.
Hand crafted organic beard oil with our unique blend of Cedarwood, Cypress, Lime, Patchouli, Rosehip and Bay leaf essential oils. The Castle is our tribute to the once strategically important Cambridge Castle.
Cambridge Castle was built from timber after the Norman Conquest in 1068 on the old Roman route between London and York and was rebuild in stone by King Edward I from 1284. 10 years later, in 1294, King Edward I stayed at the castle, but reputably only for two nights. It was significant in several conflicts in the 12thand 13thcenturies. During the 14thcentury the castle had fallen into disrepair and by order of Henry VI the castle hall and chamber were dismantled in the 15thcentury and the stones were reused for constructing Kings College and Trinity College chapel. Nowadays only the castle motte and limited earthworks still stand.
In our minds eye we see the castle of old under siege; attackers approaching from all sides through open countryside and woodland and setting-to the castle with ancient weapons. Canons are firing and the scent of gunpowder lays heavy in the air.
Imagine this scene, if you will, and that’s precisely what we have endeavoured to capture and bottle. Fresh with wood notes to symbolise the open countryside and woodland around Cambridge and smoky to symbolise the gunpowder smell from cannon fire.
The Castle is very much a special addition to the Honestley range of products and the bottle label features a unique artists interpretation of the remaining sketches of Cambridge Castle as it was hundreds of years ago.

What oils are featured in The Castle Organic Beard Oil?
This bespoke beard oil is shaped around our key carrier oil Grapeseed (fast absorption rate and very light), along with our blend of Calendula (soothing and anti-inflammatory), Jojoba (controls excess sebum, skin protector and emollient), Vitamin E (nutrient and antioxidant) and Andiroba. The latter, Andiroba, is a particularly useful ingredient, in our opinion, as it penetrates the skin quickly, acting as an excellent emollient oil and it is naturally high in limonoids and triterpenes, which are anti-inflammatories and, therefore, great for sensitive skin. Andiroba is also often found in formulations for muscular aches and pains and products intended to reduce swelling, so can keep the skin under your beard nicely in check.
The scent has been achieved with our hand-crafted blend of Cedarwood, Cypress, Lime, Patchouli, Rosehip and Bay leaf essential oils.
