Trying out new things can cause some hesitation in anyone. In the case of essential oils, it is understandable if there are men who feel uncomfortable when you ask them to try these oils.
However, if these men remain in the dark, they won’t be able to experience the wonders that essential oils could bring into their lives. They won’t realize that essential oils are the power tools they need every day.
So, listen up — whether you’re a man who’s curious, or maybe doubtful, about essential oils or a wife or girlfriend who would want their partners to benefit from the health and wellness advantages of essential oils, this is a simple guide for you.
Essential oils for men
One reason why a lot of men are turned off by essential oils is the various scents that probably best suit women. It would certainly be a pity if this is the only thing that goes between them and oils.
To break down this common barrier, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the various fragrances that would appeal to men’s preferences. Use these essential oils to create different concoctions for men.
Sandalwood is often used in men’s blends and fragrances. Its sweet and woody aroma is one of the reasons why it’s a favorite choice for colognes, after shaves, and even soaps. The scent of sandalwood is also invigorating, and it’s known to last for a number of hours.
Producing a minty and mentholated aroma, peppermint is typically used as a toothpaste ingredient. Nevertheless, its refreshing scent can also contribute to a calming environment and improve one’s concentration. Add it to your bath or humidifier and allow yourself to relax.
- Black Pepper
Black pepper has a very masculine scent — it’s spicy, woody, and sporty. That is why it is ideally used in after-exercise blends.
Vetiver gives off a deep and earthy aroma, which is great for blends intended for men. Much like sandalwood, it has an uplifting scent that can help in improving concentration.
Patchouli has one of the stronger scents among essential oils. While it may depend on your personal taste whether you’ll like the deep, musky, and earthy aroma of the patchouli, this essential oil is known for its soothing and uplifting effects.
