Essential oils (EO’s) are not just smells. And essential oils are not just for women. History has shown them used for medicinal purposes dating back many thousands of years. To say it is a fad, is simply a misunderstanding.
The United States has been using them since the creation of the hair and skincare industry. Here is the problem.
Most of these shampoos, lotions, etc. are made using synthetic chemicals. Chemicals that lack the health benefits below.
I look to a company committed to purity beyond organic. You should too!
They make this commitment. They test, and retest. And throw away what does not meet their high standards.
So, What Can Essential Oils Do?
Here are 12 out of hundreds of benefits to men who use dōTERRA essential oils (in no particular order)…
1. Replace energy shots with healthy energy boosting oils.
Citrus oils are known to boost energy levels when consumed. Peppermint can also be used as a quick, lasting pick-me-up. Take one or two drops of peppermint in your hands, rub them together, and inhale while cupping your nose for 7-10 breaths. One drop of peppermint is equal to 28 cups of peppermint tea!
2. Increase water consumption with citrus oils.
Drinking more water has tons of obvious health benefits. We are approximately 60% water and many health concerns can link back to dehydration. I struggle with this but I have found I drink more water when I drink essential oil flavored water.
There’s plenty of options; lemon, wild orange, grapefruit, citrus bliss, and more! Just add 1-2 drops of oil to a glass of water. Make sure to use glass or stainless steel!
3. Clean your tools, better than before.
Lemon is a great tool to clean with. Use bases like salt, white vinegar, baking soda, or castle soap and add about 20 drops of essential oils. Other oils to consider using are On Guard, Lime, Lemongrass, and Melaleuca (Tea Tree). More info on recipes in the link at the bottom.
4. Keeps the use of aspirin, tylenol, and ibuprofen to a minimum.
Peppermint, deep blue, lemongrass, and frankincense are the go to oils for discomfort!
5. Toxin-free cologne
Not many places can you create your own cologne to the scent you desire. With various essential oils, this is possible. Want woodsy? Pine, cedar wood, and white fir will have you covered. Want spicy? Cinnamon and cassia will take care of you. Want a sweet musky scent? Fennel, patchouli, and lime will do the trick.
6. Chemical-free bedroom experience
Fractionated coconut oil and whisper blend is a favorite bedroom lotion. Single oils that promote healthy sexual function are ylang ylang, clary sage, rose, geranium, cinnamon, and jasmine!
