  • 4 drops cedarwood oil
  • 4 drops sandalwood oil
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 ounce jojoba oil
  • 1/2 ounce argan oil


  • To make beard oil, add cedarwood, sandalwood, coconut, jojoba, and argan oil into a small bottle (preferably tinted) with a cap that seals tight. Shake the mixture vigorously before using.
  • You will only need a few drops on your hands, or you can use an eyedropper to apply directly to your beard.

  • Massage your beard as well as the skin beneath it with this oil.
  • For best results, apply the beard oil just after you get out of the shower, which is when your pores are likely to be open.
  • This will lead to smoother and less irritatable skin. With the slight dampness, your beard will help soak the oil more effectively.
  • Most importantly, when you are done with your homemade beard oil, be sure to store it away from direct sunlight in a dry and cool place. This will help to keep the oil effective and viable for 6-12 months.


This homemade beard oil is not considered toxic, although there could be some side effects if an excessive amount is used, or if the proportions in the mixture are done incorrectly. Some of these essential oils can cause skin inflammation to those with sensitive skin.
