    That's the trouble with this site, I have had a beard for years and have never heard of beard oil, I read this post and now my life is incomplete until my beard has been oiled.

    Aveda Damage Remedy™ Restructuring Conditioner. Post shampoo, using about a green-pea sized squirt, a container will last you and your beard about 10 years. It isn't greasy, works great and has a deep, pleasing sandalwood/botanical aroma that lasts about 10 minutes.

    If you don't like that, use a drop of olive oil on your beard (or a liberal full body rubdown before wrestling). It has worked for the Turks for 5,000 years.

    Aveda makes the best products. I have been using their Invati line for thinning hair for almost a year now. I've been losing my hair ever since I got Lupus. This stuff has actually made my hair grow longer and come in thicker then it has been in years. I also use their make-up and face products. I love Aveda. Ruff likes their Shampure for men. Everything they make smells fantastic. I use the Daily Damage Remedy Conditioner everyday.:D

    Zakly. It's hard for a man to explain without sounding like a nincompoop but the scent of that conditioner is better'n MacBaren Vanilla Cream.

    Jack Passion, world beard growing champion (for real!) doesn't specifically recommend an oil but does endorse Grandpa's Pine Tar Soap for keep your beard soft: http://www.amazon.com/Grandpas-Comp...&qid=1386730732&sr=8-6&keywords=pine tar soap It's supposed to help keep your beard soft with natural oils etc. (I keep meaning to get it myself but haven't gotten around to it yet.)

    I'm growing mine out for the winter too. Gonna do the full beard 50's hair do look this season.

    beard oil, i have never heard that term, sounds like something a metrosexual cosmetic company makes for a buck and sells for 20...

    I have found that in a pinch a little bit of chapstick helps my beard or stache to stay looking much better kept. During the winter months there is usually a tube in my pocket anyway. My wife Got me some Fireman's Mustache Wax last Christmas, but that is more for special occasions.

    It does sound strange.

    I used to use Packer's Pine Tar Soap (until I couldn't find it in stores). It was black and, stranger still, made white lather. It smelled gently and pleasantly of pine, absolutely prevented dandruff, shampooed hair brilliantly, felt great on your skin and (I swear) kept bugs away from you. Wonderful stuff. Out of fashion, I guess. Have't seen any around for 40 years. I'm sure any pine tar soap would do the same.

    I'll bet tbear used to use it. He's old school.

    In the UK Mr Natty makes a beard oil that is quite well regarded from what I've heard, his moustache wax is the best I've tried so far.

    Ok, now I'm intrigued! I'll order some after all. You make it sound like the greatest secret in manly grooming...

    I use http://beardproducts.com/products/beard-oil-lavender
    It makes my beard insanely soft, it's cheap and the ingredients are top notch. My wife really likes the smell of it and sometimes tells me to put it in my beard after I smoke bic it covers the "old man pipe" smell as she calls it.

    Ordered that in Lavender Sage last night. Hopefully the wife likes it. I am going to grow my beard until the middle of June. Then probably shave it for the summer.

    I use a wee bit of unscented organic virgin coconut oil in my beard. Keeps the beard nice and soft and adds a healthy shine to it.
