*Essential oils are indeed powerful, but please don’t try punching down trees and wrestling bears. Just use these essential oils as directed to enjoy their awesome scents and benefit from their therapeutic-grade purity.

Exercise

Keeping in shape is one of the pillars upon which manliness is built. No matter if you’re crushing some bench presses, tearing up the fairway, or hiking high enough to high five an eagle, 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

aches, arthritis, strains, bruises, and sprains. Backed with our Seed to Seal® promise of purity, this pain cream will have your muscles thanking you for ditching the synthetic ingredients.

 

Take care before and after exerciseDeep Relief Roll-on

a drop or two in your glass water bottle will keep you coming back for more.

 

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 perfumePatchouli Essential Oil - Young Living

Supposedly, perfume is called “cologne” when it’s for men, but let’s skip the nomenclature and ditch it altogether.

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.

Be kind to your hard-working skin! This homemade body butter recipe will leave your skin moisturized and soft, thanks to rich cocoa butter and coconut oil. We love its whipped consistency that goes on smoothly and feels light to the touch.

 Whipped Body Butter

Ingredients

  • 1 cup organic coconut oil
  • 1 cup organic solid cocoa butter (do not use lotion)
  • 15 drops of your favorite topical/aromatic essential oil (we love Cedarwood, Lavender, and Frankincense essential oils)­

Directions

  1. Warm a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, then add coconut oil and cocoa butter. Melt until completely liquefied, about 4–5 minutes.
  2. Pour into a glass mixing bowl and place in refrigerator for 30–45 minutes to cool and just set but not harden.
  3. Stir in essential oils.
  4. Using an electric hand mixer, whip until firm peaks form, about 10 minutes.
  5. Gently transfer to a seal-able jar or container. Store at room temperature to avoid melting or solidifying.
  6. Massage into dry skin!
