Unlock the instinctive feeling of appreciation for nature and people. Say hello to GENIGUN – DRUID PLANTS BEARD CARE, packed with the elementary power of plants prized in the age of the Germanic and Celtic tribes. Our organic beard oil is exquisite, functional, and specially designed for the modern man.
Our Genigun Beard Oil contains burdock, water mint and stinging nettle, which were prized for their use as ritual and healing plants in ancient Germanic and Celtic medicine. The botanical classification of these organically certified plants that we use is the very same as the species present in the areas inhabited by the North Sea Germanic peoples and Celts at that time. Look after your beard with authentic, plant-based active ingredients.
Camelina oil and oil from the seeds of the hemp plant, which was a plant used by the tribes from the North, have been adapted to care for your beard. Using modern, stable carrier oils and Vitamin E, these oils have been refined to offer you unique and exclusive beard care products.
One of the reasons for developing this beard oil was to bring nature into the beard of those people who are not able to be in nature because they are in the everyday life of the big city, have to get ready quickly, have to go to work, etc., and to encourage them to get more involved with nature. Your beard is thus not only cared for and strengthened, but also surrounded by the natural connection to nature.
As little packaging waste as possible; Genigun Beard Oil is sold without outer packaging. Environmentally friendly shipping in packaging made from grass. Natural manufacturing process. Made from 65% recycled waste paper and 35% native forest and meadow grasses. The cushioning material is made from compostable, fully plant-based organic packaging chips. The glass bottle acts as a natural preservative: being made from purple glass, it reduces the oxidation process of natural cosmetics by providing the best possible protection from UV rays.
WHAT DOES GENIGUN MEAN?
‘GENIGUN’ is a linguistic construct. The first part comes from the old English ‘GE’, meaning YES, as spoken by the Germanic Angles tribe in the early 5th century in Angeln – present-day Schleswig-Holstein. The second part comes from the word ‘NIGUN’, which was the number nine in Old Saxon.
When the Angles and Saxons immigrated to Wessex in Britain along with other Germanic tribes – followed, later, by Scandinavians and Danes – the ‘GE’ gradually became ‘GEA’. This later ‘GEA’ was pronounced [jɛi] and was the forerunner to ‘AYE’, which is still used today to voice approval in votes in the British parliament, and from which the modern-day ‘YEAH’ is derived.
The number nine had great significance in the mythology of the Germanic and Celtic peoples. Nine is not only the exponentiation of the number three, which among other things stands for perfection, past, present and future. Nine was also prized because it was seen as the highest possible (a quasi supernatural) power, number, or length of time.
And thus the name ‘GENIGUN’ – a combination of a positive word of affirmation with the number nine – stands for: ‘Yes: Yes to the
greatest possible appreciation'.
