Carrier and carrier oils

A high-quality beard oil is typically made up of two different ingredients: a carrier oil or a blend of carrier oils and an essential oil or a blend of essential oils.

In this case, we choose argan oil and sweet almond oil for the carrier oil. Argan oil is non-greasy and is easily absorbed into the skin. It is high in fatty acids that help restore the balance of natural oils in the skin. It is also rich in vitamin E that stimulates hair growth and helps repair and prevent split ends.

Sweet almond oil is lightweight and hypoallergenic, making it gentle on the skin. Softens and conditions hair and skin, and helps replace the protective layer in the center of each hair, preventing breakage at the ends. Almond oil is rich in magnesium, zinc, and calcium.


Tea tree oil is a natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. It is perfect for those who are prone to acne or ingrown hair. Peppermint leaves a stimulating sensation on skin and hair and can help accelerate hair growth. Sweet orange is also antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. It also increases the skin’s ability to absorb vitamin C, helps in collagen production and blood flow. And, best of all, all three oils smell amazing mixed together.

Instructions to prepare the oil to grow the beard

  1. Add one part almond oil and one part argan oil.
  2. Use 25-35 drops of essential oil for the scent. You can use the oils in any combination you want. For example, this combination of peppermint, sweet orange and tea tree, or you can remove and just leave the one of your choice.
  3. Add the combination of oils to the amber glass bottle with a dropper. Swirl gently to incorporate.

How to use the oil to grow a beard effectively

For best results, apply the oil to a freshly washed and towel-dried beard . Drop 3-5 drops into one hand. Longer beards will require more drops, just increase the amount one drop at a time. Rub your hands together and then rub the oil all over your beard, massaging the oil from your beard all the way to your skin.
