Beard Oil using Essential Oils & a Giveaway!

A great recipe for Man Approved Beard Oil :) and wife approved honestly. Suepr easy to make!

A great recipe for Beard Oil. To those with husbands, make this!Many of you know that my husband has a beard. He has had a beard from the very first day I met him. The only times he did not have a beard, was for a few years when he worked security back before he graduated from Seminary and then again from 2012-2015 while he served as a Cobb Co Police Officer in Atlanta, GA. His beard, is just part of his look and I actually prefer him with it :) – so, its here to stay.

One thing that Travis has been trying to do though is soften up his beard. I complain that its to rough. The hair on his beard is very coarse and dry… So he asked me to make him up something he could put on it. I did some research and found two essential oils that I had on hand, that I thought may do the trick. So I made him up a small 15ml bottle and he has been using it since.

His beard does feel softer and healthier but more importantly, it smells nice. :D The oils I used in it have a very woodsy, manly smells, that are just nice to be around. It is far better than those chemical smelling after shaves or oils you’d find in most main stream stores. Even if your husband didn’t have a beard, this would be a great oil to slap on after a shave.

So whats in it?  Here is the recipe :)

Essential Oil Beard Oil or After shave Oil



  1. Fill your 15ml glass bottle with 8 drops of each oil. This ends up equalling like a 1% ratio dilution for each oil. I don't like to make face blends to strong since the skin on our face is sensitive. If you'd like to learn more about dilution ratios feel free to checkout my other essential oil post (I will link to the dilution post below).
  2. Once you add your 8 drops of each oil (so 16 drops total), fill the rest of the bottle with the jojoba oil (aka carrier oil).
  3. Store in your bathroom and use as needed.

Now to answer a few questions….

Why did I use Patchouli and Cedarwood Essential Oils?

I used them for two reasons. They have great benefits for the skin and their manly smell. :) Below is some information on both oils and why they are beneficial for facial use.

  • Patchouli – An excellent skin oil, Rocky Mountain Oils’ Patchouli is one of the top oils to use when treating many skin issues including impetigo, hives, eczema, acne, and dermatitis. It helps tighten and tone wrinkles and sagging skin. It also helps to soften and rehydrate chapped skin. Because it is non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitizing, it is safe for all skin types. It is a great oil to include in hair treatments when treating dandruff, seborrhea, and dry hair. [source]
  • CedarwoodRocky Mountain Oils’ Cedarwood oil is used the most for skin and hair care. It works really well when treating acne. Because of its “masculine” scent, it is more acceptable to most boys and young men for use on their acne. It is also particularly good for helping control body odors. It is excellent to use in hair care for oily hair and scalp, as well as for dandruff. It can help strengthen your hair and keep it from falling out quite so fast. [source]

[Both of these oils have other great uses besides beard oil too. So be sure to check out other ways you can use them on the source links above]

Here is a post on dilution ratios that should help you out when diluting oils down.

Also if you need blending bottles (spare bottles to put oils into you create), you can buy those on amazon or head over to Rocky Mountain Oils and buy them there. If you plan to order some essential oils from them, you may as well just get the bottles at checkout. Makes life easier :) – they do offer free shipping on all orders.

Alright! now the fun part :)

Enough about “man” stuff :) – but really, go make this for your husband, he’ll love it!

If you are curious why I use Rocky Mountain Oils instead of Doterra or Young Living, you can read this post.

For those wondering why my labels on my bottles look different than the current RMO labels, thats because my oil bottles are over a year old. RMO recently rebranded their labels and look, so the new packaging is different (I love it!). So my bottles look  “old school” but I assure you, they still rock. :)
