I have never seen the need for oil.
I brush it regularly, daily, and wash it every 3 days or so.
I need to be convinced of an alternative.
But on the subject of beards, have you heard of the band " The beards"?

Originally from Calabria, Italy. Circulated through the Italian-Canadian seed saving community in Toronto before being sent to Joe Sestito in Troy, NY. Introduced to SSE in 1996 by long-time member Dr. Carolyn Male. Heavy yields of finger width thin-walled red peppers up to 12" long. Great for fresh eating or drying. 85 days from transplant. Hot +/- 4600 seeds/oz
I do like the history but if they skipped half of the history they could fit in.....

There are thousands of properties just on this island, that might benefit from having a part-time caretaker. I found one couple on this site , who were supposed to do 2 hours of work per month , in exchange for living in my cabin. They couldn't find that kind of time, and I had to kick them out.
The caretaker thing is probably the most available and workable situation for most people. Particularly if there are children , a fixed address can be desirable.
Most of us don't get paid to sleep. I know a fellow named Carol who does get paid to sleep, in his van, at job sites where materials might be stolen. His dog barks at the slightest provocation. When he wakes up in the morning, he's already at work.

Yeah, I got some jojoba oil last night, hazelnut sounds nice too. Is that more of a base oil? Or is that a strong scented essential oil?
I need to do some sneaky investigating on which smells he really likes because he has really sensitive senses, so I don't want to get him something and have him end up not liking it. I know of some that he likes, but if it is going to be right under his nose, I think i have to be really careful.
What are your favorite smells ? Is eucalyptus a good one? I already have that. I've heard sandalwood maybe?
