Beard oil is a great way to keep your beard looking and feeling its best, but did you know it can also be used for various other purposes? From tackling harsh smells to adding luster to your locks, beard oil can be surprisingly versatile. In this blog post, we'll explore five surprising uses for beard oil that you may not have thought of before. Read on to learn more about these unique and helpful ways to use your favorite grooming product!


Beard oil can be used as a leave-in conditioner to keep facial hair looking healthy and well-groomed. A few drops of beard oil applied to the hair after washing helps to moisturize and protect the hair from damage. It also helps to smooth and detangle the hair, allowing for easier styling and a more polished look.

Using beard oil as a leave-in conditioner can help prevent split ends, reduce frizz, and give the hair a nice shine. When applying our classic Beard Oil, it's essential to start at the base of the neck and work your way outwards. This routine ensures that most hair gets coated with the oil, resulting in a more even distribution. 


Beard oil is an excellent alternative to traditional aftershaves, as it helps to soothe and hydrate the skin but can also help to protect it from bacteria and other irritants.

To use beard oil as an aftershave, apply a few drops to your fingertips and massage into your freshly shaved skin. The oil will help to hydrate the skin and help to soothe any irritation caused by shaving. Additionally, its antibacterial properties will help keep your skin healthy and free from post-shave breakouts. 


Beard oil can be used as a light and pleasant-smelling perfume. A few drops of our favorite Beard Oil Refresh can act as a perfect light scent to keep you smelling fresh all day long. This use benefits those sensitive to strong perfumes or who dislike traditional cologne options.

It's important to remember that these scents will only last for a short time compared to a conventional perfume, but it's an easy and natural way to add some fragrance throughout the day.


Beard oil can be an excellent hand moisturizer, especially during the cold winter months when your skin needs extra protection. Not only will it keep your hands feeling soft and hydrated, but it also has a pleasant scent that will help you stay smelling good.

Start by applying a small amount to the backs of your hands and then gently massage it into your skin. Ensure you wash your hands before doing so, as the oil may become absorbed by dirt and bacteria. Once you've applied the oil, leave it on for at least an hour before washing it off with lukewarm water. Doing this routine a few times a week can protect and nourish your hands.


Using beard oil as a sunscreen might sound strange, but it can be a great way to protect your beard from the sun's rays. Many beard oils contain natural ingredients like coconut oil (Fresh Heritage's Classic and Refresh Beard Oils contain organic coconut oil), which is rich in antioxidants and fatty acids that protect your skin from sunburn.

To use beard oil as a sunscreen, apply a few drops to your beard every morning before going outside. This simple routine will help keep your beard soft, shiny, and protected from harmful UV rays.
