But with so many options on the market, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one for you. In this guide, we'll break down the different types of beard oils, the benefits they offer, and how to choose the best one for your unique needs.

Types of Beard Oils

There are three main types of beard oils: carrier oils, essential oils, and fragrance oils.

Carrier oils, such as argan oil, jojoba oil, and coconut oil, provide the base for the oil and are used to moisturize and nourish the skin and hair. Essential oils, such as tea tree oil, peppermint oil, and lavender oil, offer additional benefits such as promoting healthy hair growth and fighting acne. Fragrance oils, such as sandalwood and cedarwood, add a pleasant scent to the oil.

Most beard oils on the market are a combination of carrier oils, essential oils, and fragrance oils.

Benefits of Using Beard Oil

Beard oil offers a variety of benefits for the hair and skin. Here are just a few of the benefits of using beard oil:

  • Moisturises and nourishes the skin and hair
  • Helps to prevent beardruff and itching
  • Promotes healthy hair growth
  • Adds a healthy shine to the beard
  • Keeps the beard soft and manageable
  • Can improve the overall appearance of the beard

How to Choose the Best Beard Oil

When choosing a beard oil, there are a few things to consider:

  • Skin type: Some oils may be too heavy or too light for certain skin types. Be sure to choose an oil that is appropriate for your skin type.
  • Scent: Choose a scent that you like and that you can tolerate throughout the day.
  • Ingredients: Look for high-quality ingredients that are known to benefit the skin and hair.
  • Brand reputation: Research the brand and read reviews to see what others have to say about their products.

BeardBrand, $26

We have been in the industry for a while and have had the pleasure of meeting some of the most innovative and successful business owners in the industry. One of the most memorable moments was back in 2014, when Eric, the owner of a  Beard Brand based over in the USA left us one of our first reviews for our then new product our beard balm. Later on, he would come up with his own formulation, but we like to think that we influenced him 'a little.'

He is always a pleasure to be around and has a lot of knowledge of the industry. Captain Fawcett's products can be found in barbershops around the world and for good reason. They have fantastic scents and the product range is constantly evolving, although they may be on the higher end of the price spectrum.

Daily use of these elegantly balanced Cedarwood, Black Pepper, Patchouli & Palmarosa oils will soothe, moisturise and invigorate both skin & facial hair.


Beard oil is an essential tool for any man looking to keep his beard looking and feeling healthy. By understanding the different types of oils available, the benefits they offer, and how to choose the best one for your unique needs, you'll be able to find the perfect oil for you.

As a final tip, regardless of the oil you choose, make sure to apply it to a towel-dried beard, as this will help to evenly distribute the oil and ensure maximum benefits.
