There are various reasons that you should use natural beard oils, for starters it helps to moisturize your beard as well as your facial skin, and this means that as your beard grows, it is softer. It also helps to groom those longer and at times peskier bristles so that they stay in place.

How is Beard Oil Applied?
It is very simple to apply beard oil, rub three to four drops of your preferred on your palms and through your fingertips, apply to your clean and dry beard using upward motions. Begin on the underside and move your right hand across your face right toward the left cheek and do the opposite with the left hand. To evenly distribute that oil after it is applied, use a beard comb, if you have a moustache make sure that you comb it as well and make sure that when you are done distributing the oil, all the hairs are combed back into place.
The frequency of application will vary from one person to the next. It is important to apply it once in the morning and again when you feel like it, wait at least a few hours in between application, for most people once a day is sufficient and you do not usually need more than three doses in one day.
Make sure that you only apply after you beard is clean and dry; a dirty or wet beard will not properly absorb the oil. If you apply your beard oil right before bed, it will probably soak right into your pillow so time the application properly.
