DIY Beard Oil Recipe

This homemade beard oil softens and tames scruff, reduces skin flaking (aka “beardruff”), and smells great. You only need a few ingredients to make it, too.


  • 2 ounce glass dropper bottle
  • stainless steel fork or toothpick
  • measuring cup


  • 4 tbsp carrier oil (Argan OilAvocado Oil)
  • 18-24 drops essential oil (See suggestions in “Manly Essential Oil Blend” section above)


To Make

  • In a measuring cup, use a stainless steel fork or toothpick to mix the carrier oil and essential oils together.
  • Pour the homemade beard oil into a glass bottle and store in a cool, dark place.

To Use

  • The amount needed varies depending on the size and texture of the beard, but most beard aficionados recommend working in a a few drops into freshly-washed (slightly damp) facial hair first thing in the morning, then increasing if needed. It can also be applied to dry facial hair if preferred.
  • To use, your recipient will just rub the beard oil between their palms and massage into beard hair, then comb if desired. It takes about half an hour for the oils to absorb, so don’t freak out if it feels a little greasy at first. After that, they’ll love their softer, more kissable beard! And if it’s your significant other, you’ll enjoy kissing the one wearing it. 🙂


Shelf life:  About 3 months.
