This DIY Beard Oil Recipe Will Give Your Facial Hair Pep, Volume and Style

“The beard signifies the courageous; the beard distinguishes the grown man, the earnest, the active, the vigorous. So that when we describe such, we say, he is a bearded man.”  - St. Augustine of Hippo

Beards are in right now, and for many men, facial hair is just as important as head hair as it offers an additional means of sharing their personality with the world. They are also rugged and pretty cool if we do say so ourselves (well, if styled, groomed and cared for correctly, anyway).

That said, if you currently sport a beard or you’re thinking about growing one in the not so distant future - it’s important to understand that using the right products is paramount as this will ultimately dictate the health, volume, and overall success of your beard.

And the best way to ensure you’re facial hair is looked after is by using beard oil.

Now, there are plenty of beard oil varieties out there - and like most things in this world - some are better than others. The thing is, buying beard oil regularly can prove to be a costly venture. But, have you ever considered making your own?

Well, it’s totally possible, it’s economical, it’s time-friendly, and you will be amazed at the results. And lucky for you, our beardy (or soon to be beardy) compadre, we have a quick, easy and effective beard oil recipe with your name on it.
