How Much Beard Oil Should I Use?

Beard oils come in many different scents and flavors, and each has its own unique properties. Some people swear by using a lot of product while others prefer a light touch. The best way to determine whether you need more or less beard oil is to experiment until you find the right amount for your skin type.

The amount of beard oil you should use will vary depending on the texture and length of your beard. For a short, stubble-length beard, a pea-sized amount of oil is enough. For longer beards, you'll need to use more - up to a dime or nickel-sized amount.


When applying, start at the neck area and work your way up. Massage it in well with your fingers, making sure you reach all the hairs and skin beneath them. After that, comb or brush it through for an even distribution. Remember to apply a few drops of oil every day for best results!

And How Much Beard Oil Should You Use?

Here’s everything you need to know about using beard oil.


If you’re new to beard care, start with a small amount of beard oil and work up to larger amounts as needed. A good rule of thumb is to add a few drops of oil per day, although this amount may be greater or smaller depending on your skin and beard needs.


The first thing that makes our beard oils different from others is the fact that we only use organic essential oils. These oils contain no harmful chemicals, making them 100% safe for both your beard and your skin.


No beard oils can guarantee that the beard oil will actually grow your beard hair longer, but we have discovered that there are several factors that affect the growth rate of your beard.


Beard oils are also great for those who are transitioning from a short-haired to a longer-haired facial mane. Beard oil helps condition the hair so it grows softer and smoother.

Know Your Skin Type.

There are three main skin types: dry, normal, and oily. Dry skin tends to be dehydrated and needs moisturizing.

Normal skin is slightly oily with a tendency toward dryness.


Oily skin is usually well moisturized, has a high level of sebum, and may need a little oil to control excess shine.


It’s important to know what type of skin you have before choosing the best beard oils. If your beard oil is too strong or if you get oily skin, it may be beneficial to try another oil. Remember that beard oil should also be applied to the skin beneath your beard. 


You may notice an immediate difference in how you feel after using your favorite beard oils. You will notice softer, more manageable beards.

Choose The Right Product!

If you have dry skin, choose a product that contains shea butter, jojoba, almond, coconut, olive, grapeseed or avocado oils.


If you have oily skin, choose a product that includes argan, soybean, jojoba, avocado, grapeseed, sesame, or sunflower oils. For those with combination skin, try a product with a blend of these oils.


Use Only Natural Ingredients. Many beard oils are filled with chemicals that can irritate your skin and make it break out. The only natural ingredients we suggest for your beard care routine are: beeswax, avocado, and Jojoba. This trio helps keep your skin moisturized and prevents future problems.

How to Choose Beard Oil?

There are so many different types of oils available today. You need to understand which type of oil works best for your skin. Shea butter is great if you have dry skin. Jojoba oil is great for people with oily skin. Argan oil is great for people who have combination skin. Coconut oil is great for those who have dry skin.


Avoid products that contain alcohol. Products with a high percentage of alcohol tend to feel sticky and heavy on the skin.

Apply it Correctly

Beard oil should be used after you've washed your face, or after you shampoo your beard. To ensure your skin absorbs it well, use beard oil after your pores are open.


You can experiment with beard oil daily or every other day.

Don't use too much beard oil. You don't want your beard to look greasy, instead of groomed. Here are some tips.

  • Massage your entire beard with three to five drops of beard oils in your hands. This should be done when your beard is still slightly damp.
  • You should apply it to your beard and the skin underneath.
  • To ensure your beard oil is evenly distributed, use a premium Boars' hair brush or high quality beard comb for thicker beards.
  • To grow a long and thick beard, you might need more beard oil.
  • Style to suit your needs.
