Beard oil is something that is said to benefit a lot to men who have some beard growth issues and other beard related problems. This oil is mainly a mixture of carrier oils along with essential oils and they are really effective on men.
Good beard growth oil has proper carrier oil like almond oil which can serve as a base of the beard oil and their major function is to dilute the essential oils which are more concentrated. Once diluted, they can be safer to be used on skin. If one applies essential oil directly on the skin, then it can result into irritated skins and some other adverse reactions.
Carrier oil, as the name suggests, can carry the essential oil like thyme oil to the skin safely which is there under the beard and nourish that skin because health follicles of beard lies there only. Also, thyme oil has an earthy scent. Argan oil is also very good because it can save the beard from the split ends.
Here are some major reasons why men must use beard oil if they are sensitive and more careful about their beard.

But one when use beard oil then they can get relief from that constant itching. Good beard oils can nourish and coat those hair follicles and it also moisturises the skin that lies beneath the beard. Beard can itch due to a lot of reasons. When it is in the growing stage then there can be some itching at the early stages. Sometimes, when they have grown enough, they become dry and they need more sebum or natural oil to stay nourished. Apart from that, accumulation of regular grime and dirt can also lead to itching of beard. Proper beard oil can always give nourishment to the facial skin and moisturises it.
- Many men suffer from beard dandruffs and dry skin flakes shows on the beard and falls to the clothes when one itches them. Getting rid of them is very important and beard oil can help in doing that. Regular usage of beard oil never makes the skin and beard dry (dry skin mostly gives rose to dry flakes) and so white flakes appear less on them. But there can also be dandruffs due to change of seasons. But use of beard oils can be a great idea to stay safe.
- There are sometimes when the beard becomes patchy and there are some areas of the face which are full of follicles. Though it can be an outcome of genetics this does not look good. In fact, one can also suffer from alopecia which can lead to beard growing issues. That is why; one needs to use beard oil.

Also, the beard health will become much better and one will see the difference after using the oil for 2 weeks. It will also aid in beard growth.
How to use beard oil?

Well, the best time to use it is in the morning just after one takes a shower. This is the best time because then the skin remains clean and moist. One has to take just 2 to 4 drops of the beard oil (this completely depends on the length of the beard hair that one has) and then spread it on the palm of the hand and rub the hand together. Then one should apply that evenly spread oil on the beard and then gently massage it. When massaging the oil one has to massage it upwards through the beard hair and then smooth the hair in a downward motion. If the beard length is a bit long then one can also use a beard comb to brush the beard hair just after massaging the oil.

Now, how often one must use a beard oil? Well, it is said that one must use that oil for at least 3 to 4 times a week and that too depending on the beard hair type. If one thinks that their beard has dry hair, then they can use it till 6 times a week so that the hair can get moisturised and they can get some more strength. But if the hair is on the oilier side, then one can use it only 2 to 3 times a week. When one is going to buy beard oil, then they must go for those beard oils which have proper minerals and vitamins. One should check if the beard oil has thyme, argan and almond oil or cedar oil because they are really good for beard growth.
