Essential oils are NOT just for ladies. I hope to show you how you can incorporate them into HIS life. Even if he hates lavender, and most do for some weird reason, there are many non floral smells to trigger their sense of smell and get them ingrigued. And once they see how well they can work too you might find him asking where you keep your oil stash. Need ideas for Father's Day make and take? I'll give you some recipes too!

Most guys don't like to admit they hurt. They will complain but not do anything about it. Super frustrating! Hand them any of these products that YL makes so they can just slap it on. This is a great way to start men using oils since they have a purpose, they don't smell like flowers,
it will show them oils are not just for making your house smell pretty AND they WORK!

Shutran shave cream is an exceptionally unique type of shave cream. It delivers the closest shave leaving their face incredibly smooth! My hubby LOVES this stuff and swears it is the ONLY shave cream he has ever used that doesn't give him bumps. He has very curly hair so gets ingrowns in his neck area and this creamy shave lotion completely eliminates that pseudofolliculitus for him. SOLD! I seriously buy one every month for him and he loves it. I like that it is non toxic and it smells good. Not fake or gross like an old man. A perfect way to get him used to oils is to get him a product that he has to use anyway.

Is your dude getting a little thin up top? Sweep in and save the day! Mix up a little spray using this duo and have him spritz it on twice a day. Secretly drop some in his shampoo and see if he figures it out! Or offer to do a head and neck massage and grab some carrier oil with a few drops of each and massage the hair cuticle. This won't help much if he has to been bald for 30 years-I mean, he won't spirit like a chia pet but if he (or you) are starting to thin out an bit-OIL UP!

Sleeping issues?? Who doesn't know someone who struggles to get to sleep or stay asleep!?? Well, it doesn't get any easier than this. Get him a Tranquil roller. It looks professional and he won't tease you cause it looks more official than your homemade rollers. This does have a lavender smell so if he is one to freak about the grandma smell then roll it on his feet and tuck him in. Nighty-night! I swear by this oil for kids!!

Well let's just say most dudes will be willing to try anything in the bedroom and that includes essential oils. YL formulates a blend for men that is called Shutran. It is meant to be worn like a cologne. Kind of a scent to help them few manly AND attract or stimulate the pheromones. To be honest I hated the smell for about a year. It was weird. But then my hubby started using the shave cream with this oil in it and wowzers, I starting loving it! You can pair it with their sensation massage oil. That massage oil is floral and meant to help opposite sex partners each have a kick to their sex hormones and get the motor running.

One oil he WONT find annoying is lemon. I have never met a guy who hated it. It is clean, recognizable and makes people happy. Seriously, it makes people HAPPY!! Drop it in the diffuser and park his grumpy butt near it telling him to inhale deeply. You know what else lemon does?? Removes gummy residue and greasy gunk. Like a boss! 1-2 drops on sticky stuff. Gonzo!

How is his grill? Help fight periodontal disease using the power of cloves. Thieves is a powerful essential oil. We all know that. And YL make a boat load of products containing Thieves. One of their popular products is their dental care line. Toothpaste, mouthwash and floss. It is good!! I don't rave about crap I don't like. This is a good one. Teeth get clean, gs get healthy and there is no toxic or irritating crud for his sensitive teeth to complain about!
He won't even know he is using oils❤️and his mouth is getting kiss ready!

Tummy troubles? Does your caveman get a belly ache or clear a room with his wind? Perhaps you can offer him a little digize oil. Yep, it stinks but it works! Add it to a capsule or scoop of maple syrup or honey and make him swallow it.
Digestive enzymes are a fabulous thing to take for everyone. It helps you break down your food so it is easier to digest. Can't complain about that!
Lastly a probiotic is a MUST for all ages. It helps restore the good bacteria that is supposed to live in your guts. The kind that antibiotics kill. If you are prone to yeast infections you better get yourself some probiotics!!

Peppermint. The perfect oil. Smells great, tastes great and everyone knows it! I love to take a bowl of cool water and add a drop or two of peppermint oil. Toss in a washcloth or bandana then wring it out. Perfect to lay on your neck and head to cool you right down! This is also useful for hot flashes or when kids have a fever. Peppermint is cooling especially when it is REAL peppermint not a fake laboratory created peppermint oil. YL oils are ReAL and that is why they work and are more expensive. You get what you pay for.

Is your main squeeze stressed out? Have the kids get daddy his own bottle of stress away for Father's Day! I think the premade roller that YL sells is the perfect gift! Handy, ready to go and already diluted so it is idiot proof. Anyone else LOVE this tropical island smell?? I've got mine in my pocket right now! Swipe down the back of the neck,over the ears and across the chest. Sniff your way to paradise.

Gross toenails?? Gang up on them with this stinky but powerful duo! Noone likes those nasty yellow, thick, disgusting rigid looking nails you see on dudes who should NOT be wearing flip flops. Get a bucket and Soak gross feet in this combo with water and Epsom salts. Make a roller bottle and label it for him and set beside his bed. He will thank you when he no longer scares away small children.

Let's say your handy and want to mix up your own magic potion. This is a good one he will like the smell and it offers a tingle so he will know it works. People always like to feel something or they don't think it works. Ugh. It is the ingredients that prove whether it works or not...not the tingle! Either way, mix it up in a roller bottle or repurpose an empty eo bottle and add a roller fitment from YL. Add a cute label using Avery.com!

Back to Shutran! This bar soap is sooooooooo moisturizing. I bought it for him but took it back. Seriously, bar soaps get a bad rap. This is not drying at all, smells great and is sure to win him over!
Get clean and enjoy the woodsy scent of Shutran™ essential oil blend! This vegan-friendly bar soap gives you a creamy lather that cleanses the skin without over-drying, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth. While the masculine scent may appeal specifically to men, it’s great for people of all ages and skin types.
Made with Shutran essential oil blend, olive oil, shea butter, wolfberry seed oil, and jojoba oil, Shutran Bar Soap is gentle on skin, while the activated carbon gives the bar its distinct gray color and deodorizing and cleansing properties. Plus, the 100 percent plant-based formula was created without synthetic ingredients like parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, glycols, sulfates, synthetic dyes or colorants, or EDTA, so it’s a clean you can feel good about!

My hubs feet don't stink but my boys' sure do! My 8 year could kill a small animal with the stench that is emitted from his footwear. This powder is soooooo easy to mix up. I sometimes get a little stank foot in some of my summer sockless footwear so this is a family winner. Go to the dollar store and Get a Parmesan shaker, a salt shaker or get fancy and buy the shaker lid meant for pretty mason jars (I bought one at target).

Poo pourri number 2 bathroom spray! The amazing stink stopper spray-before-you-go wonder spritz. Another easy DIY.
A confirmed proven fact this gift is appreciated by all men and those that have to live with them.
💩Do you have a partner who drops a bomb 💥💩 in the loo? Maybe it's you? Spritz this on the toilet water BEFORE you go and trap those odors in the bowl. This is a stink-fighting, non-toxic must. I carry one in my bag of wonders for on-the go help since a lady likes to be a lady.
recipe for 1 oz. bottle so adjust accordingly:
1) 1 teaspoon rubbing alcohol (can use vodka or witch hazel)-this helps oil and water from separating
2) 1 teaspoon vegetable glycerine (can use castile soap) -this helps create a thick barrier to trap the stink
3) 10 drops of your choice of essential oils. I prefer 8lemongrass and 2 Bergamot. Maybe you like peppermint or how about a woodsy aroma? If that is not enough fumigate your feisty fecal funk, feel free to add more!
4) Fill the rest of the bottle with water preferably bottled or distilled water just to prolong the life of it since tap water isn't without fault
Number one Shake and spritz 5-6 sprays onto the toilet water BEFORE you go number two. This is not a room freshener but a stink trapper. Proceed with your bathroom needs then flush. The fumes are trapped and will go down the drain with the solid waste leaving him wondering does your poo really smell like roses after all?🌹

For the ultimate grillmaster! Get him some culinary vitality oils so he can make marinades. All of the Citrus oils are amazing to cook with. And the savory ones add just the right amount of kick with one tiny drop. Or splurge and grab him the apron, glove and oils set that people are saying is actually really great!
