Homemade Beard Oil Recipe – DIY

by | Jun 10, 2017 | Men's Care, Natural Beauty & Cleaning

Namaste Crunchy Homemakers,

Do you have a fuzzy man bear as your significant other?

Am I the only one who calls their lover that???

Anyways….if you do happen to have the slightly fuzzier than average man at home, I bet you have heard the term beard oil quite frequently… and if you haven’t…. let me tell you a few good reasons why you would want to incorporate it into your man’s daily routine. Beard oil:


  • Promotes healthy skin (reducing acne, scares, irritation, and more)
  • Reduces dandruff and flaky skin
  • Promotes hair growth as well as softens the facial hair
  • Makes the bead shine
  • Smells amazing

However similar to other cosmetics, if you’re buying beard oil from the stores you’re going to get a lot more than just healing ingredients and with a lot less quality. So today I want to share with you a healing beard oil to celebrate the hardworking man in your life.  
For the perfect beard oil you want to incorporate these ingredients for maximum benefits! 
Cedarwood EO – a great oil to use for inflamed skin (such as acne) and dry, flaky skin and can even be helpful for breathing problems. 
Patchouli EO – just a touch of this strong earthy scented EO is all you need to help lock in moisture.  
Frankincense EO – helps to reduce wrinkles and age spots as well as great for dry skin. 
Jojoba Oil – This oil is similar to human’s natural oil; making it great for your skin & hair as well as making it easily absorbable. 
Hemp Oil – keeps hair nice and smooth as well as moisturized, keeps hair from becoming brittle.
Olive Oil – rich in antioxidants, olive oil is great for dry skin and nourishes facial hair…..plus I have an abundance of this in my pantry so trying to use some of it up! 😉 
Jars – I am using a 50 mL glass slow pour jar from Infinity Jars for this beard oil. Using glass jars is the best and safest way to store your oils. Compared to amber tinted jars and clear jars, the Infinity Jars were able to keep their contents fresher & less damaged for a longer amount of time.
Labels – Be sure to use labels on your jars, I promise you won’t regret it! I bought this pack from amazon & created my own design to print on that I will be using. See below if you’d like to print your own!

    Hey Ashleigh, Thank you for sharing these recipes, at times my beard gets abit dry and flaky so the inclusion of the cedarwood essential oil sounds like something I should be doing!

      I have found that the cedarwood really does work with the dryness of my husband’s skin, plus I really love the smell!! <3 Thanks for reading & hope that you enjoy the recipe!!
