Benefits of Beard Oil
Beard hair follicles are nested in sebaceous glands - glands which produce an oil (sebum) which covers the follicle. As you start to grow your beard, and it starts to get longer, the amount of sebum produced is not enough to coat the follicle and keep the skin above it moisturized. This causes dryness and itching. Beard oil enters as a savior to nourish and coat the hair follicles, moisturizing the skin beneath the beard, and providing much needed relief to calm that itch.
In fact, the carrier oil and essential oils in beard oil have excellent antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory healing properties which further help to clear out infections and control redness and inflammation. This helps to alleviate acne symptoms and reduce breakouts.
If you have acne, experts recommend to apply beard oil in the morning right after a shower or face cleansing routine rather than at night before sleeping. Make sure you try a little initially to test for any allergic reactions. More importantly, you must not cut any corners with the quality of beard oil you buy. Steer clear of beard oils that contain silicone or alcohol or any other synthetic ingredients that can trigger acne, and only go for 100% natural, additive-free beard oil.
Beard dandruff, more popularly known as beardruff, happens when the itching gets to the point where the dry skin flakes off and starts to fall on your shirt. It's white flecks of dandruff - but it's on your beard. The best way to tackle beardruff is to not allow it to happen in the first place. Using beard oil just when you're starting to grow your beard will eliminate and keep early itching at bay, and since the skin beneath your beard will be moisturized, there will be no dry skin left to flake off.
Oud Oil (Agarwood)
One of the world’s most unique scents is Agarwood Oil. This rare and beautiful perfume dates back as far as the 7th century and has been used by many cultures on important ceremonial occasions.
Agarwood or Oud forms as a reaction to fungal or bacterial attack. Trees, ocassionally become infected with a parasite mould and they secrete a fragrant, protective oil into wounded areas (roots, branches or sections of the trunk), which gradually become harder and dark brown to black.
Oud oils have been the favoured scent of Sultans and royalty for centuries, and is considered rare and precious to this day. Stories tells us of the extreme habits of luxury of King Louis XIV of France, who had the practice of washing his clothes in Oud oil.
Oud still remains a luxury item desired by royalty across the world, including but not limited to the orient, Arabia and indeed western royal society.
