If you have a beard, then you are probably already familiar with some of the beard oils on the market. As beards and mustaches have become more popular, so have beard oils.

Why use a beard oil? Why make a beard oil? Conditioning oils for beards and mustaches are really beneficial in many ways. They condition the hair follicles, and help keep the mustache and beard a little easier to manage, and help with the feel, and smell, of the mustache and beard – for the owner whose face they are on, and anyone else that might come in to contact with them too. There is nothing like a mustache and beard that feel good, feel moisturized, smells pleasant, and is easy to take care of. Beard oils help with all of these.

Here’s some tips to help get you on your way to making your own mustache and beard oils.

When you start making your own beard oil, you’ll start with a base oil. We have found through research that some of the popular base oils are often the popular natural oils used in many top quality skin and hair care products like: Jojoba oil (golden), MCT fractionated oil (also called  Caprylic Capric Triglyceride ) , Coconut oil 76 deg., Shea Olein, Argan oil, and/ or Avocado oil too. These oils are generally light and nourishing to the skin and not too greasy feeling. Usually a blend of these oils is a great place to start.

The MCT Fractionated oil, sometimes called Caprylic Capric Triglycerides, is an excellent starting base oil to use for making a beard oil. It does not have a fragrance/ odor, and is not greasy feeling. After selecting a base oil just choose some secondary nourishing oils and blend! You’ll have a nice feeling nourishing beard oil before you know it.
