You can use any type of eucalyptus essential oil for beards but in this recipe we are using Eucalyptus Globulus. Here is more information about this type of Eucalyptus Oil:

  • This is the most common type of the Eucalyptus varieties because of its high cineole content.
  • It is derived from the “Blue Gum” Eucalyptus native to Australia, steam distilled from leaves and twigs.

DIY Nourishing Eucalyptus Beard Oil

This recipe calls for two other essential oils. One of them is cedarwood oil which is great for beard growth. The other is lime essential oil which adding a bright and energetic aroma. If you wish to only use eucalyptus oil in the recipe below, you will need 9 drops total.

Ingredients for Beard Oil:

Directions:

In a 1-ounce dark glass container (I prefer bottles with droppers) add your drops of essential oil. Measure out your carrier oils and add to the bottle. Roll the bottle around gently in your hands to mix the oils. This recipe is at 1.5% dilution, good for everyday use. Make sure to label your DIY recipe.

***Safety Note: Be sure you are using distilled lime in this recipe. Cold-pressed lime is phototoxic and can lead to burns when used on skin that is then exposed to sun.***

How to Use Beard Oil

Here are 3 steps on how to apply beard oil:

Step 1 - Wash: It’s best to use beard oil when you’re out of the shower or right after you’ve washed your face, as damp hair and skin allows the follicles to absorb more of the oil.

Step 2 - Prepare: Gently towel dry your face and facial hair, leaving the hair slightly damp. Add drops of the beard oil to your hands and rub them together to disperse evenly between both hands.

Step 3 - Distribute the Oil: Start at the roots of your beard hair and massage the oil into the hair and underlying skin, then continue rubbing the oil down to the tips of your facial hair. You can then comb your facial hair, or finish styling it however your normally do.

It’s best to use the beard oil every day for optimal results, especially in the winter when it’s dry and our skin is more prone to drying out and causing beard itch.

How Much Oil Do I Need?

As you use the oil, you’ll find out how much you prefer to use. Below is a handy suggestion guide to get you started:

  • Stubble Only – Use 1 to 2 drops of the beard oil
  • Facial Hair that’s 1-2 inches Long – Use 2 to 4 drops of beard oil
  • Facial Hair that’s 3-6 inches Long – Use 4 to 6 drops of beard oil
  • Facial Hair that’s longer than 6 inches – Use 7 or more drops of beard oil

It’s always best to start with less drops and add if you need to. Remember, it’s much easier to add more than it is to take some away once you’ve applied it.
