DIY Beard Oil – Make Your Beard Smell & Feel Like A Sex Panther

Our DIY Beard Oil Recipe Infographics



Chances are that you’re on the site because you’re interested in the “craft” of bearding. You’re not some guy who has a sloppy unmaintained beard, but instead someone who understands that a beard is a work of art and takes time and care to maintain.

One thing I’ve learned about people who are interested in the “craft” side of things is that eventually want to branch on their own and become a maker. What is a maker? Simply put, a maker is a DIY person… someone who gets a thrill out of starting with an idea and being able to output a final product.

I’m the same way, so that’s why today I’m going to be covering how to create homemade beard oil. This isn’t an overly complex beard oil recipe, but it gets the job done. Eventually you’ll be able to mix and match ingredients and scents to create your own 100% unique beard oil… that’s when things get fun.

DIY Beard Oil Ingredients & Supplies

In order to make beard oil, there’s a couple key item that you need:

1) Essential Oil

2) Carrier Oil

3) Bottles to store your creation (I recommend 1 ounce bottles)

4) Measuring cup

When you start shopping for your ingredients you’ll notice right away that essential oils and carrier oils aren’t cheap. However, recognize that you’ll be able to make many bottles of beard oil with a single bottle of essential and carrier oil. This makes it relatively cheap over the long haul, but a bit costly upfront.

How To Make Beard Oil

After you’ve picked your essential and carrier oils it’s time to actually begin making your awesome oil. The next step is to simply mix your selected oils together to achieve the desired scents and benefits. You’ll likely need to play around with a few bottles and mixture amounts to achieve what you’re happy with in the beginning. Once you figure that out we recommend just writing it down and keeping the mixture amounts somewhere that you can reference later on.

Step 1) Measure Out Carrier Oils

Begin by mixing your carrier oils till you have roughly 1 ounces worth. Let’s say for example you want to use Jojoba and sweet almond oil. You would then take .5 ounces of each and mix them together to roughly equal 1 ounce.

Step 2) Add Essential Oils

Measure our your desired amount of essential oils. Essential oils help you achieve a pleasurable scent that you’re after. I would recommend being extremely careful because some essential oils are extremely strong smelling. Start with a few drops to begin with and see how that is, iterate and add more as you find necessary. You can combine multiple essential oils to achieve your desired scent.

Step 3) Test it out!

Now that you’ve combined your desired essential oils and carrier oils, it’s time to give it a test! Note: make sure you’ve washed your beard and done some facial maintenance as always before using beard oils.
