The Best 15 Essential Oils For Beards And DIY Beard Oil Recipe

The Best 15 Essential Oils For Beards And DIY Beard Oil

Tame the tangle of your beard with this easy beard oil recipe! We've brought together 15 of the best scents for your beard oil and making your own is easier than you think. This will keep your facial hair looking sleek and polished with very little work.

One of the best parts about mixing up your own beard oil is customizing the scent. You can choose your own adventure: rugged woodcutter or suave world traveler? You can even create multiple options to match your mood!


  • 2-ounce glass bottle
  • Your favorite carrier oils
  • 30-40 drops of essential oil


1. Fill the bottle about ¾ full of carrier oil. Use a funnel if necessary.

Tip: You can use just one carrier oil—like jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, or coconut oil—or any combination you’d like. 

2. Add essential oils. See recommended oils below.

3. Mix together. Shaken, not stirred. (Just kidding! You can stir it if you really want to.)

4. Store in a cool, dry place with the lid screwed on tightly.

To use:

Put 2-3 drops in your palm and rub through your beard to smooth flyaways and add shine. Remember to avoid your mouth and nostrils—unless you want them to shine too.

Tip: No time for a DIY? Try Shutran Beard Oil!

Shutran: Young Living created Shutran essential oil blend specifically with men in mind. This masculine scent pairs well with confidence—on the field, in the office, or wherever your day takes you.

Clove: Clove is also a great option for sweet spice with a warm and comforting aroma.

Eucalyptus Globulus: Eucalyptus Globulus is a brisk pick, thanks to its fresh, exhilarating aroma and cooling sensation.

Lavender: There’s no need to fear floral. Lavender has a light, calm aroma. It’s also great for revitalizing hair, cleansing and soothing skin, not to mention reducing the appearance of blemishes.

Lemon: Lemon has an energizing and uplifting scent and reduces the appearance of aging! It is a photosensitive oil, so it’s best for using on your beard at night.

Peppermint: Pep up your routine with Peppermint. The scent is a balance of sweet and herbal, and you’ll love the cooling sensation.

Pine: Pine is like carrying a bit of the forest with you, no matter where you are. It adds a fresh, woodsy twist to any blend.

Patchouli: Warm, earthy Patchouli is a common scent in colognes and other grooming products. It may also improve the appearance of dry or dull skin.

Rosemary: Rosemary helps support healthy-looking hair. It also has a fresh, invigorating aroma that pairs beautifully with any of the other oils on this list!

Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood®*: Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood has a bright aroma that smells like fresh, warm wood. Plus, it may improve the look and appearance of healthy skin.

Sage: If you’re looking for something that’s both spicy and herbal, Sage is a favorite! It’s also traditionally used for its clarifying properties.
