Beard oils tend to be scented, leaving you with a fresh smell all day, from tobacco oud to sandalwood they come in all fragrances it’s just a matter of finding one which tickles your fancy which you can rate the best smelling beard oil.

Why do I need to use beard oil ?

Have a feel of your beard, is it rough and spiky? that’s what they call coarse facial hair. Compared to the hair on your head its thicker and you don’t want loved ones complaining about it being irritating or even your self that you dare to shave it all off.

Beard oils can help improve the coarse hair by making it less coarse sand supple all while looking after the skin underneath your beard stopping it from becoming itchy or flaky causing ‘beardruff’.

All in all making it a handy tool for any bearded man wanting to stay stylish and smelling fresh for the full day.

How long does my beard have to be ?

Growing the beard is a wajib (mandatory) for all males who are capable of doing so. This has ample evidence in the Sunnah and is the undisputed opinion of the ‘ulama of Islam. One should not be misled by the neglect of this Sunnah by a few contemporary shaykhs, and by them providing fruity fatawa to support their actions. By doing this they make people follow them into the wrong way, when the Messenger sallalaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said:

“He who starts a good Sunnah (way) will be rewarded for it, in addition to receiving rewards equal to the rewards of those who follow him into it. Whereas he who starts a bad Sunnah will be burdened with it, in addition to receiving burdens equal to the burdens of those who follow him into it.” [Muslim]il

And he said:

“Allah does not pull the knowledge abruptly from the hearts of people, but he takes away the knowledge by taking [the lives of] the ‘ulama (true scholars). When no ‘ulama are left, people will take ignorant persons for leaders. Those will give them fatawa (religious verdicts) without knowledge. By doing this, they will stray and lead others astray as well.” [Al-Bukhari]

How and when should you apply beard oil?

Grooming products all have different methods of using and how often you apply beard oil is completely up to you. Most oils will absorb and wash out easy making it ideal for using every day. Some are more powerful and suited for people who don’t wash their beards daily.

When you do find the perfect oil for you and award it the best mens beard oil we suggest you use it with a beard shampoo and conditioner. It’s good for coarse hair and you can quickly towel or blow dry your beard making sure you comb it through and work it with your fingers for a smooth finish.

Our recommendations

The beardist beard oil – let’s have a look at why we recommend this product

Beard Oil by The Beardist is a blend of natural base oils and each blend has a different mixture of natural essential oils added for scent (and other benefits). The oils contain Jojoba Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Avocado Oil, and Sweet Almond Oil.

The beard balm from the beardist has the same oils plus natural Shea and Cocoa butters as well as Coconut Oil.


Jojoba Oil – this oil is thicker than most oils because it is actually a liquid plant wax. Jojoba oil is extremely close to our skin’s natural oil that we wash away when bathing. Jojoba oil helps our Beard oil absorb into your skin and hair rapidly.

Argan Oil – is advocated as moisturising oil, against acne and flaking of the skin, as well as for ‘nourishing’ the hair. This oil has also many medicinal uses against rheumatism and the healing of burns. Externally, Argan oil is used for hair to fortify and in the treatment of wrinkled or scaly dry skin.

Grapeseed Oil – this oil contains high levels of Vitamin E, which helps strengthen your beard hair. Grapeseed oil is also very moisturising.

Avocado Oil – this oil is an excellent source of Vitamins A, B1, B2, D, and E. It is especially good for helping sensitive skin. This oil is what helps Beard Oil relieve beard itch and “beardruff”.

Sweet Almond Oil – this oil is also a great source of Vitamin E, D as well as calcium, potassium, and magnesium. It is commonly used as a massage oil because it acts as a natural muscle pain reliever. It is also used to treat split ends and reduce frizzy hair, making it a perfect part of our blend.

Shea Butter – like the oils, Shea Butter is also rich in vitamins and minerals. It helps with dry, itchy, flaky skin. It also is useful in cold weather to relieve chapped skin and wind burn.

Cocoa Butter – helps reduce hair breakage and increases the manageability of your beard. This is one of the ingredients that really helps our beard balm make your beard neat and tidy. It also coats the follicles which adds volume.

Add all the above to the amazing range of fragrance they contain and you have yourself the perfect product. Check out our beard starter pack or if you simply want just the oil, balm or other beard necessities have a look here.
