Tips for Making and Using Beard Oil At Home

Beard oils are all about beard conditioning to make your beard more manageable and soft. Beard oil recipes typically include jojoba or almond oil, coconut oil for a lighter scent, essential oils like lavender or peppermint, vitamin E capsules and arnica extract which is the herb most often associated with reducing inflammation of skin tissues.

  • The ingredients can be mixed together in any proportions you want but some beard experts may recommend adding a carrier base such as grapeseed before using any other ingredient so that they don't create an unpleasant odor. Some people use beeswax instead of carnauba wax because it's cheaper while others find that applying beard balm over their beard makes it too stiff - this really just depends on personal preference.
  • When you're ready to start beard oiling your beard, take a small amount in the palm of your hand or spoon and rub it between both hands. Apply generously from root to tip on a dry beard for best results and massage into skin and hair follicles for even distribution.
  • Beard oils typically last six months but this will depend largely on how often it's used, the ingredients used, and storage conditions (keeping out of sunlight). Keep in mind that beard oils can be made at home with just a few supplies - some things you may need are jojoba or almond oil, coconut oil for lighter scent such as lavender or peppermint essential oils like arnica extract if desired which is also good for reducing inflammation of skin tissue.
  • When beard oiling, it's important to apply generously from root to tip on a dry beard for best results. Massage into the skin and hair follicles for even distribution before you head out the door.

Some Additional DIY Beard Oil Tips

  • Make sure you use 100% pure essential oils. This will ensure that the oil is safe for your skin and smells as good as possible.
  • If you have any skin irritations or worries, consult your doctor before using beard oil. 
  • Beard oil is great for skin and beard health, but it can also act as a moisturizer.
  • Don't leave your dropper top on for longer than 15 seconds.

As with any product or recipe that includes essential oils, always do a patch test before applying beard oil every day. This is especially true if you have sensitive skin or plan to be in direct sunlight after application as these can all cause adverse reactions such as irritation and sunburns so make sure your beard is adequately protected when using an essential oil beard oil recipe at home!
