The manly man’s guide to essential oils

(manly edition)



Welcome, gentlemen, this one’s just for you.  Incorporating essential oils into your life isn’t just easy—it can also put a manly spring in your step.  Use this link to purchase your doTERRA Oils as a Wholesale Customer, receiving discounted pricing.

There seems to be a bit of a stereotype out there about essential oils being more for women than men and that’s just not true!   Men can benefit from the therapeutic properties of EO’s just as much as women. Essential oils are wonderful for everyone!


I thought it was high time we put this stereotype to bed, and devote a post to all the different ways that men can (and should!) use essential oils in their daily grooming and health care. Check out these three categories in your life that can benefit from a few drops of pure awesomeness: Essential oils can be used for shaving, cologne or libido enhancement. Essential oils are indeed powerful.  Just use these essential oils as directed to enjoy their awesome scents and benefit from their therapeutic properties

1. Exercise

Keeping in shape is one of the pillars upon which manliness is built. No matter if you’re hitting the gym, pounding the streets, or even brick laying, you’ll want to keep these basics in your gym bag to help you get the most from every workout:

Treat those aches and pains

Massage doTERRA® Deep Blue Rub into your skin after a workout for a cooling sensation that provides relief from minor muscle and joint aches, arthritis, strains, bruises, and sprains. This pain cream will have your muscles thanking you for only using natural ingredients.






Apply doTERRA® Deep Blue roll-on to your neck and chest before working out or practicing yoga to inspire you to push harder or apply it as part of a post-activity massage to target areas that need it most.


Boost your boring water

Reach for doTERRA Lemon, doTERRA Tangerine instead of sugary sports drinks to stay hydrated! Justa drop or two in your water bottle will keep you coming back for more.


2. Personal Care

Grooming sounds like such a primitive term, making it perfect for manly men like us. Separate yourself from the pack by looking great and smelling like nature itself with these essential oil-infused solutions:


Smell good without perfume

Supposedly, perfume is called “cologne” when it’s for men, but let’s skip the nomenclature and ditch it altogether. Start with PatchouliCedarwood, Bergamot, Sandalwood, or Black Pepper to see what works best with your body’s chemistry, then create a combination that’s all yours. Dilute with a smidge of carrier oil and apply a drop or two to your wrists and neck for a masculine scent that lasts all day. Check here our yoga4men DIY NATURAL MEN'S COLOGNE recommendations. 


Keep that burly beard in check 

Give those lovely locks a healthy sheen with some homemade beard oil. Check out our handy beard oil blog post for some blends. Bottom line: If your beard is oil-free, it’s just not living up to its potential. No beard? No problem! Try making your own homemade shaving cream! 


Keep your face fresh and clean

doTERRA HD Clear Foaming Face Wash is a natural formula containing plant extracts and doTERRA essential oils and is structured to cleanse skin of all ages while promoting cell renewal and a clear, smooth complexion. Treat your face to doTERRA HD Clear Foaming Face Wash

3.Diffuser blends for HIM

Diffusing essential oils is fantastic for releasing their fragrance and therapeutic benefits. Try these essential oil blend recipes for mind, body and soul. Feel free to experiment, and adjust the drops as necessary, too! Click here for  yoga4men recommendations!


Essential Oils are the plant’s immune system.

Peppermint to feel more alert – Lemon to get a happiness hit – Lavender to sleep better – Ginger to alleviate nausea – Grapefruit to reduce appetite – Eucalyptus to stop sniffles – Wild orange to reduce anxiety – Rosemary for better focus – Melaleuca to fight infections – Peppermint to stop headaches – Lavender to soothe cuts  – Cedar wood for hair loss and skin irritation


The essence is how the plants defend themselves against bugs, infections, virus, bacteria, fungus, etc. These compounds from the plants are the root of modern day medicine, it is what the drugs today are doing their best to mimic. Nature has provided us with everything we need to protect and nourish our bodies and minds so when traveling I don’t leave my house without these:

1. Lavender- great for sun burn, skin irritations and restful sleep
2. Peppermint- soothes headaches, relieves itching from bug bites, repels spiders and much more
3. Melaleuca- disinfects cuts and scrapes, heals skin tissue, defends against environmental threats
4. Lemon- helps relieve anxiety, detoxifying, purifies water
5. Frankincense- Immunity support, alleviates mental fatigue, helps to heal infected wounds
6. DigestZen- digestive support, soothes upset stomach, helps maintain healthy gastrointestinal tract
7. TerraShield- effective insect repellent (I use with Geranium)
8. PastTense- relieves head and neck tension, calms emotion, convenient roll-on application
9. Balance- promotes overall sense of relaxation, great for jet-lag, grounding properties
10. Breathe- maintains clear and clean airways, minimizes airborne threats, relieves congestion.

It's extremely important to keep the gut healthy whilst traveling, so I HIGHLY recommend PB Assist, our Probiotic Defense Formula as well!


               Opening a wholesale account with doTERRA brings you an incredible system of SUPPORT + VALUE

For most people opening a wholesale account is the smartest way to buy as once you use the oils you will definitely want to re-order so it makes no sense to continue to pay the full retail price! It's FREE to set-up your account if you buy an essential oil enrollment kit or will cost you £20 if you want to purchase other items instead.  Your account will be renewed each year at a cost of £15 and you will receive a free peppermint oil for the equivalent price (you can cancel your renewal at any time).  There are no hidden fees, obligations, sales quotas or minimums. You can order whenever you want to. Opening an account is very simple.
