We get it, growing your beard can be incredibly difficult. Even worse is when your own genetics betray you and don’t allow you to grow a proper mane. After all, proper beard growth is directly proportional to your family genes and there’s only so much you can do to brighten your situation.
The good news? If you’ve been struggling to grow a proper and desirable beard, using the right grooming essentials (the right beard oils in particular) can end up being incredibly useful. In fact, using the right beard oils will help facilitate the growth of new strands that’ll contribute to the formation of a big blown-up facial blanket. But what are the factors that you should keep in mind before selecting a beard oil for yourself?
1. The length of your bread: Depending on the type of facial hair you’re flaunting, certain beard oils will work better for you than others. For instance, what may work for a long and fuzzy beard may not be as effective for a stubble.
2. The Key ingredients in the beard oil: Just like any other grooming product, beard oils to are made using a variety of natural and man-made ingredients. Since the beard oil you use will be coming in direct contact with your skin, you need double-check the ingredients it is infused with so as to not trigger a bad or allergic reaction.
3. Your budget: You should never have to compromise on your budget in order to get your hands on a quality product. This has become especially true nowadays as premium brands are coming out with quality products at affordable prices.
4. Your skin type: Since the beard oil you apply will also come in direct contact with your facial skin, it’s important for you to have a clear understanding of what your skin type is and choose a product accordingly.
So keeping all these factors in mind, we have listed the best beard oils that all Indian men should add to their grooming arsenal.

Performance speaking, this beard oil has it all – 9 unique carrier oils that deliver exceptional slickness that will both hydrate and moisturize your skin and beard. So if you are dealing with severe beard itch or beard dandruff, it will be fixed in a few days.
Double that with their unique essential oils – you have a beard oil that draws upon its Miami, FL heritage by delivering a light scent that will remind you of a warm and sunny day.

While the initial price tag of $19 may sound steep – it’s not.

4. BEAR BRAND TEA TREE BEARD OIL
READ MORE REVIEWS
Among some of the best marketed (and perhaps most popular) beard care products that you can pick up today will be those from Beardbrand.
This company has unequivocally paved the way to make beard oil the mainstream product it is today through their appearances on shows (both TV and online).
So how does their Tea Treebeard oil stack up to both the new and existing manufacturers in the field?
Containing one of the mildest oils that you can use regularly, jojoba oil, it will help to ensure that your skin and beard stay well-nourished and moisturized for the entire day. In addition, jojoba oil also provides an excellent base for all other ingredients to do their job…
Let’s look at the glycerin for instance.
Used as an all-natural humectant (i.e. locks in moisture) glycerin will help to reinforce that natural moisture barrier found in your skin by ultimately increasing comfort for your face.
While the individual essential oils aren’t listed, Beardbrand states that this product has notes of peppermint, tea tree, and vanilla and elicits a smell that is ‘cool, clean, and crisp’.
This will give you that pleasant yet invigorating smell in the early morning hours. best beard growth oil homemade
Now onto the drawbacks:
One of the main sticking points to this beard oil is the restrictor valve. While some men may love the compact design, a restrictor valve does make it harder to get a consistent amount of beard oil from the bottle with every use.
Our biggest gripe about this beard oil is going to be with the price. This particular beard oil is an extremely tough pill to swallow by commanding a $25 per ounce charge.
If you are looking for a better value from Beardbrand, you will want to check out their white label line (sold at Target).

Awesome company with a great mission
Trusted by beardsmen since 2012
One of the best-marketed products that carry a price tag to match
Ingredients: Jojoba Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Castor Oil, Fragrance (essential oils), Grapefruit Seed Extract, Glycerin (vegetable derived)
Overall: It’s a great beard oil that is effective at getting the job done, but with its price of $25/oz. it may rest outside some men’s monthly grooming budget.
5. Mountaineer BRAND WV TIMBER
READ MORE REVIEWS
One of the biggest value beard oils on our list is this WV Timber by Mountaineer Brand. At $6.25 an ounce ($12.50 retail), this one of the very few beard oils on the market that rivals a DIY beard oil.
From ingredients to packaging, there are very little corners cut when it comes to the quality of the product (further supporting how overpriced some beard oils are).
The biggest complaint men will have with this beard oil will be the restrictor valve design.
Unable to have measured amounts like a dropper while also being a bit messy (as oil can drip down the sides), it’s not perfect.
When looking past this packaging flaw, you still find a good bottle design (dark blue to resist UV rays), along with a really good ingredient list.
The oil itself is completely all natural (see ingredient list below) and will be perfect for not only making your beard look and feel great, but the extra essential oils will give you additional benefits as well.
If there was any beard oil that would be considered “classic” this would be it. The pine and cedarwood scents give off that familiar lumberjack scent so many men desire.
Overall it’s a great beard oil worthy of being listed among the best.
