Essential Oils for Dudes
Need some inspirational ideas for how to spoil your man? Here are some great ways to use essential oils to make DIY gifts and practical daily items for men. Enjoy!
Outdoorsy Essential Oils
1. Lemon Essential Oil: the Duct Tape of Essential Oils
Ah, Lemon Essential Oil…if I have to give you a clever nickname, it would be ‘the duct tape of essential oils’. I’ve talked about why I love Lemon essential oil before (read here), and it has some great qualities for the men-folk. For example, you can use lemon essential oil to remove oil and grease stains. Or loosen rusty screws. Or to clean car grills or car batteries. There are so many options!
2. Lawn Guy’s Helper
Peppermint essential oil is another of my favorites (read more here)! Whether or not your man is a fan of mowing the lawn, it can get pretty darn hot out there! Consider using some peppermint oil on a damp rag and rub on the back of the neck for a refreshing sensation.
3. Make your man a hand scrub
You know how men can come inside with filthy, greasy, dirty hands? Consider handing them a homemade hand scrub, like this recipe, to help scrub away the grime. It has the bonus of getting their tough hands nice and soft, too!
4. Outdoor Scents
If you’ve got a hunter in your life, you know how obsessed they can get about cover scents. These outdoorsy essential oils might be just the thing for them to try! Even if your man isn’t into hunting, these essential oils are perfect for using to make them gifts like lotion bars, lotion cream, or bath salts. They probably wouldn’t mind these oils in the diffuser, either!
5. Luscious Locks
Both Cedarwood and Rosemary essential oils are amazing for your scalp and hair. Consider spoiling your man (or yourself!) by adding these essential oils to your shampoo OR just have a special scalp massage date!
6. Give him some amazing Shaving Cream
Shutran Shave Cream is made especially for men. With clean ingredients and a great manly scent, your man will have a nice clean shave that leaves him with some really nice and soft skin.
7. Great Dental Hygiene
Granted, getting toothpaste and mouthwash aren’t really the best GIFT ideas, but they are still amazing products for your home! I’ve mentioned before that I LOVE Thieves cleaning products, and this toothpaste and mouthwash are some of my favorites! Your man will love the cinnamon and clove taste, and you will love the healthy, natural ingredients.
8. DIY Beard Oil
If you are one of those ladies who LOVE beards on men, here’s a great DIY beard oil recipe that will help improve the overall look and feel of your man’s beard.
9. Make him a Shoe Powder
Let’s face it: men can be kinda stinky. They can especially stink up their shoes. This DIY shoe powder will keep that odor down and make for a happy and less-stinky household.
10. Refresh tired muscles
Whether your man just got done with either a tough day of work, a hard workout at the gym, or a sweaty day caring for the lawn, you can be prepared to help him refresh his tired muscles with the following products:
11. Muscle Man Roller Bottle
You can make your own custom blend of essential oils that he can bring with him to the gym or to work. This recipe can help keep him refreshed from a hard and strenuous day:
12. Heat things up in the Bedroom
Want to heat things up in the bedroom? Shutran essential oil is a man’s best friend, trust me! Consider a sensational massage oil, too, for bringing the magic to the bedroom. Or, if you want, check out my recipe for a water-based lube. You’re welcome. 😉
13. Promote sleep
