We've been making this wood balm for years for ourselves and use it everyday in the shop but it never really occured to me to SELL IT until a regular customer asked if they could get what we use to rub down our wood products. This is an all natural wood "treatment" that contains no filler products, petroleum jelly, alcohol etc.. that actually dries out the wood even more!
This is a semi solid mix of waxes and butters with an equal amount of oils that are all selected to help the wood stay moisturized and sealed without chemicals. It's also great to just beautify older wood that has either lost it's luster or has become dry over time.
It's pretty simple to use and it's so "healthy and natural" that I always just apply mine with bare hands and rub it right into the wood. Actually your hand heat will help melt the semi solid balm and ease in the application. Apply evenly in a thin coat and allow to remain on the wood for a bit and have time to absorb. Less is more in this situation, you do not need to cover it in an inch of salve just a little bit and you will see it glow. After some time you can wipe off the excess with a clean cloth or paper towel if you'd like.
What to do with whats on your hands? well I just rub mine right into my hands because the ingredients in this aren't all that different than ingredients we use for lotions and hand salves :D
1-3 business days
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
We are always happy to work with store owners, barber shops, online resellers and anyone who wants to sell Dixie Cowboy Products. Just send us a message and we can work on a custom wholesale order just for you. We are not currently wholesaling our handmade combs and brushes, it is just impossible to mass produce these at this time. Some minimums apply when placing items for resale.
While our handling and processing time is set to 3 business days we generally ship out rather quickly. We schedule pick ups for Monday and Thursday every week so you can expect your order to go out on those days (depending when you order).
Where applicable we will give an idea of the ingredients in the product. We do this for the love and all items are as advertised so if we say something is "glycol free" or "soy free" etc... it is. BUT we've had so many fishy people lately trying to get us to give them the recipe to our unique items. We love these products and we love you (our customers) so rest assured that our products are 100% as advertised. BUT again, if you have a specific allergy please just email us and we can tell you if it's safe.
We love what we make and our handmade items take up most of our free time these days. We treat each one like it's our artistic interpretation and as a piece of art. We no longer accept custom or personalized orders as what little free time goes into creating more product for our shop. Thank you for understanding.
No not all but many, any item that can be custom scented for you will have a drop down menu with a SCENT category in the listing. Some products can not be scented due to a majority of reasons.
Our animal hair is sourced right here in Texas. All our wood is sourced right here as well but there are a couple for obvious reasons like they don't grow in Texas that are sourced elsewhere. Same with the horns. If you are looking to start your own comb or brush business I would suggest doing some research as I'm not giving up my contacts :D :P :D :P
I can't give you a class on how to make the brushes or combs, please don't ask me to walk you through how you can make the brushes or combs yourself. I'm sorry but I've worked hard to create a niche and it's not very nice to expect me to give out trade secrets and walk you through how to attach, clean, sanitize etc.. the boar hair and attach it :D :P :D :P.
This seems to be the number one thing I've had emails about recently. All animals are treated with respect and dignity. When possible the material is sourced right on our farm but when needed we buy from other suppliers. It goes without saying that our GOAT and HORSE hair brushes are from "no kill" animals. Our boar hair is sourced in Texas from several places and is collected from wild boar who are hunted and processed for meat. There is no cruelty involved and all boars are dispersed as humanely as possible. Hair collection is only done when animal is processed after death.
Our typical packaging consists of brand new heavyweight boxes and new bubblewrap... BUT .... we hate waste here whether it's horn chunks, wood pieces or even packaging items we get ourselves. SOOOOO I always keep a big box full of brown recycled paper, air pillows and anything else I can reuse. We don't normally ship with it UNLESS someone asks so PLEASE PLEASE just add a note with your order if you would like Green packaging.
