Sometimes the guys just aren't all about the whole Essential Oils thing... until they see their benefits first hand. What better way to show them than to surprise them with a few oils of their own on Father's Day? (or any other day, really..)
Here are a few of my favorite Dad-Inspired oils to think about gifting him this year!
PINE - My hubby likes to wear this as a cologne, mixed with Cedarwood, Orange, and/or Patchouli. It's earthy, subtle, and has a calming, grounding aroma.
Also, if you're nervous about any unwanted critters in your bed at night, spray your mattress down with a 4 oz spray bottle of water with about 5 drops of Pine EO. It's also a great oil to promote emotional balance.
PANAWAY - This is a great oil for dad to take with him to the golf course! I remember my dad coming home from a day on the links and spending the next couple of days complaining about how much the muscles he used while playing were bothering him. Rubbing Panaway on uncomfortable muscles will help alleviate those feelings.
This oil is a blend of Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove, and Peppermint.
STRESS AWAY - Diffuse this oil about 15 minutes before dad gets home from work so he comes home to a nice peaceful environment. This is also a great oil for him to blend with Pine for that nice cologne roller. He can apply a drop to his wrists, temples, or neck for and inhale deeply for an overall sense of calming. Another great idea for dad is to keep a spray bottle with Stress Away in his car for a relaxing while he's on his way to and from work.
This oil is a blend of Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood, Octotea, and Lavender.
PEACE & CALMING - Same uses with Stress Away. However, this blend is slightly sweeter smelling so dad may not enjoy it as much as Stress Away. Add a few drops of Pine however and he may like it more! This is a great blend to diffuse in the bedroom for a little romantic scent at the end of a long day. Hint: Orange and Ylang Ylang have "oo-la-la encouraging" properties! ;)
This oil is a blend of Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, and Blue Tansy.
CITRONELLA - Make dad a roller or spray using this oil when he's outside mowing the lawn, grilling, or golfing when it's buggy out. No one likes those pesky critters!
Properties of this oil also include digestive support and deodorization.
LIME VITALITY - Because this oil is in YL's Vitality line, you can ingest it. I'd recommend giving dad a drop of this oil in his fresh ice-cold Corona! Perfect while he's relaxing on his special day. It's also a great addition to any marinade or salsa! I like diffusing this with Peppermint too.
This oil, along with all of the others mentioned, has some amazingly health-supportive properties that I highly encourage you to research on your own! I have to remain compliant for YL's sake, but there are numerous articles and websites out there with endless info that will keep you wanting more!
