beardHave you ever seen a beard so scraggly that it made you want to work harder on keeping your beard groomed? It takes about six weeks to grow a beard from a clean-shaven face and during that period you may have problems with ingrown hairs. Whatever you use on your beard needs to be good for your skin too. Beards can trap sebum and debris which can cause an odor and spots. In this busy day and age, you’ll probably be taking care of your own beard as opposed to having it done by a barber.

Your lady will like your beard if you keep it shiny, well groomed and healthy looking but you may lose her if it is dull, bristly, patchy and  smells bad. Using essential oils in a carrier oil like avocado oil, jojoba oil or almond oil is good grooming for your beard as well as your skin. The essential oils that are good for this purpose are rosemary, lavender, thyme, lemon or cypress. An excellent conditioning mixture is 10 drops rosemary, 5 drops lavender, 5 drops thyme and 10 drops lemon essential oil diluted in 2 teaspoons jojoba oil. Use this blend once a day during the growth period. When the beard is fully grown, use the oil as a conditioner for your beard by massaging it into the beard and your facial skin before bathing. Rinse it off with cool water after your shower or bath.
