Beauty of the Fae: Rip's Beard Oil






Fae folk do love playing tricks on unsuspecting mortals. Rip Van Winkle’s story is widely known as a classic American tall tale by Washington Irving in which Rip wanders deep into the Catskill Mountains to avoid a nagging wife, and comes across a very peculiar, small, stout man who offers him a drink. A drink that causes him to fall asleep for twenty years.


Be cautious when offered a drink by any strange characters who cross your path deep in the mountains. Bearded folk, if you should find yourself waking from a twenty-year slumber with an unruly beard, tame those whiskers with Rip’s favorite beard oil.
