I love watching men embrace their bearded faces, but some of them do not know how to maintain the mane! This recipe is easy to make and use and can help any man keep his beard healthy, strengthen the hair, and give it an overall amazing look!

Get your man’s beard the moisture it needs! The best part about it is you know what’s in it and it’s all-natural. It’s a great gift idea for the men in the family. They’ll love the personal touch and they can even make it themselves. How about that? 

What’s in This Beard Oil Recipe

Carrier Oil

A carrier oil is needed for this recipe to dilute the essential oils and make it safe to apply on your body, especially your skin! I like using Jojoba Oil for this recipe, but you can use any carrier oil that you prefer!

Vetiver Essential Oil

Vetiver Essential Oil has a woody and herbaceous scent. It also has added skin care benefits, so you don’t need to worry about it irritating your skin when diluted properly!

Fir Needle Essential Oil

Fir Needle Essential Oil has an evergreen scent that will make you think you are in a forest. It has added health benefits too, so you can give yourself a health boost while keeping your beard nice!

Cedarwood Essential Oil

Cedarwood Essential Oil has a dry and woody aroma that ties the whole recipe together! It has calming properties that can make you fully enjoy your beard oil experience.

Glass Bottle

An airtight glass bottle is needed for this recipe to keep everything fresh! There is no specified size, so as long as you can fit 2 teaspoons in there then you’re good to go!

Things to Remember When Using This Beard Oil Recipe

Always dilute an essential oil when using it on the skin. This essential oil recipe is unlikely to cause skin irritation when diluted properly. If the oil has been oxidized (left with the cap off for long periods of time) it is more likely to cause skin irritation. Check out this dilution chart for diluting this essential oil properly. 

This recipe is generally safe to use around pregnant women. Consult your doctor prior to use. 

This essential oil is safe to use around kids age 2+.
