DIY Beard Oil Recipe

Are you looking to elevate your man’s grooming routine? Introducing beard oil – the secret weapon for a soft, luscious beard that’ll make him stand out in a crowd. But what exactly is beard oil?

Beard oil is a blend of natural oils designed to hydrate, condition, and tame unruly facial hair. Typically, it consists of two main types of oils: carrier oils and essential oils. Carrier oils, like jojoba, argan, or coconut oil, form the base of the beard oil, providing nourishment and moisture to the skin and hair follicles.

Meanwhile, essential oils, such as cedarwood, sandalwood, or peppermint, not only infuse the oil with a delightful aroma but also offer additional benefits like soothing irritation or promoting hair growth.

So, why should your man incorporate a DIY beard oil recipe into his grooming routine? Well, for starters, it helps prevent dryness and itchiness, keeping his skin and beard hydrated and comfortable. Plus, it adds a healthy sheen to his facial hair, making it look well-groomed and oh-so-touchable. And let’s not forget the irresistible scent that’ll have you nuzzling closer.

The best part? Making your own DIY beard oil is a breeze. With just a few simple ingredients and a little bit of know-how, you can whip up a custom blend that’s tailored to your man’s preferences.

So, why not treat him (and yourself) to the gift of a luxurious beard oil DIY? Trust us, he’ll thank you for it!

Here is a list of our top 7 Beard Oil ingredients, including best essential oils for beard

Rosemary Essential Oil(Rosmarinus officinalis) is steam distilled from the leaves of the fragrant common herb that grows in many geographical locations around the world. The benefits of using rosemary oil for hair are many, including the way it cleanses and fortifies hair follicles and keeps the skin cleansed and fortified. The aroma is herbaceous and grassy, with a slight hint of wood, that offers a stimulating and wakening sensation.

Cedarwood Essential Oil(Cedrus atlantica) is steam distilled from the wood of the tall majestic Cedar trees native to north Africa. The essential oil is loaded with unique molecules that offer both calming to the mind and body as well as notable protection when facing potential germs.  The aroma is earthy, woody and masculine offering a sense of inner strength and courage.

Frankincense Essential Oil (Boswellia serrata) is steam distilled from the resin of the unique frankincense species that grows in India.  This particular frankincense has a slightly different aroma than the Frankincense we associate with ritual practice and ceremony, but it shares similar healing benefits for the skin.  Known for its remarkable ability to support the skin’s innate skill to repair and restore, Frankincense essential oil can help balance skin tone, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Pumpkin Seed Oil is a carrier oil that comes from cold expeller pressing the seeds from pumpkins. Unlike an essential oil, it is not fragrant, and feels more “oily” when we touch it. The seeds are scraped out of the inside of the pumpkin, shelled and then pressed to extract a rich greenish red oil that has been shown to have powerful effects on the skin.  It soothes irritation while making the skin and hair feel softer and look healthier. 

Rose Hips Seed Oil is a carrier oil that comes from cold expeller pressing the seeds from the Rose Hip fruits.  Like Argan it lacks aroma, and feels slightly “oily” - unlike essential oils.  It shares many of the same healing benefits with argan oil, like being soothing to the skin, supporting tissue repair and promoting resilience. Plus, it is known to calm sensitive skin, and offers a healthy glow to the hair.

Jojoba Seed Oil is a carrier oil that comes from cold expeller pressing the seed from the Jojoba plant. Like other carrier oils, it has almost no aroma and feels more “oily” to our touch than essential oils.  Jojoba oil absorbs relatively quickly to the skin and helps boost the strength and resilience of the hair.

Sea Buckthorn Oil is a carrier oil that comes from cold expeller pressing the berries from the Sea Buckthorn Shrub.  The shrubby tree grows in cold climates and is one of the richests sources of natural beta carotene. Beta carotene has been shown to help the skin and hair repair and restore itself by promoting cell regeneration.

"I recently researched the best treatment for dry skin and scalp...I then came across some helpful info on the benefits of Jojoba oil and decided to look for an organic brand. Your oil is truly wonderful. I now use it exclusively for skin and scalp, only adding frankincense essential oil for its calming effects. This combo is exceptional. I'm very glad I found Cliganic."
