I use Jojoba oil on my beard. It's sold in a bottle that drips the oil out to dispence it. But what I found is that when using the oil, it was a hit or miss application and a lot of the oil remained on my hands. So I bought a trial size hairspray, dumped the contents and filled it with jojoba. Now application is much easier, neater and complete. I hope that kinda answers your question, is six drops enough?...probably depending on the length of your beard of course. But by using this application suggestion, you'll make the most of those drops.

Hey I heard first time about beard oil I just want to know is this really effective.

Do use a comb or brush after applying the oil?  Is there any advantage to using a wooden comb? 

Gave Before Shave is what I use. 

They have a facebook page, or check out  http://www.fisticuffsmustachewax.bigcartel.com/

for their products.

As for how much to use, I think it's really down to you. I personally use anywhere from 3/4ths to a full "dropper" of oil every day. Then again, I haven't shaven in about 7 months, and there's been no trimming for about 5 months either. 

In my opinion, and I am the first to admit that my opinions are not always correct, oils are used to smooth the beard so that you don't have hairs sticking out here and there.  For me it only takes three drops to cover my rather short beard.  Some guys use oil as a conditioner and thus use a lot and work it into all the beard, down to the skin.  I think a beard balm works much better for conditioning my beard, and it does not cost as much as oils.  Someone got me started with a homemade beard balm that is very simple and easy.  At least once or twice a week I use a ladies facial cream and work it through my beard before bed. It moisturizes the beard and the skin under it and washes out very easily in the morning.  As well, ladies facial cream can be relatively cheep.  By the way, I am comfortable with my manliness so it does not bother me to use a ladies product.

Here's the way it was explained to me:

-Oils are used to smooth and tame the shorter beard (0-9 months or so), if you're using it as a conditioner, as I did, there will come a point where the oil doesn't have enough "weight" to smooth and tame the stray hairs. 

-Balms can be used from day 1 as a leave in conditioner, but really come into their own for "control" once your beard gets a length/weight that the oils no longer tame it.

Obviously, if you're going for a no-trim, no shave look for any period of time, after a while you have to take care of it like it's "regular" hair, as in shampoos and whatnot.
