This article is to enlighten you on the various beard oil recipes that you can find and make in Nigeria. If you Google it, you will find tens of beard oil recipes for men to do themselves.. but the point is, can you get some of the ingredients listed in those articles in Nigeria?? Most times, No!

This article is just about to do that for you. So I think we should get to it. Shouldn’t we? But just before we do that! Hold on a second!
You need to know a few things. There are carrier oils and essential oils. Carrier oils are the main oils that contain, accommodate and ‘carry’ the other essential oils that will be mixed in them. It is essential to mix essential oils with carrier oils first because carrier oils dilute the essential oils. What do we mean by “dilute”? We mean that essential oils are too harsh for the beard and skin under it as well, so much that they can cause skin problems like irritations. So, know that you need to first dilute your essential oils in carrier oils first before you use.
