DIY Natural Men’s Cologne

You know we talk a lot about women’s natural options to eau de parfum, eau de cologne, and eau de toilette but sadly seem to neglect our men.  Well it’s time to change that.  Today I am going to start with some simple DIY’s for the ladies to make for their men or the men to make on their own.  I will be doing scent profiles in another post so as not to overwhelm anyone with too much information.

Incorporating pure, therapeutic grade essential oils into your personal care products or baths for that matter provide a myriad of benefits that have previously gone unnoticed to many.  For instance, just adding some of the most common essential oils like lavender, frankincense, lemon, and peppermint you can:

  • Fight cold and flu symptoms
  • Relax your body and soothe sore muscles
  • Heal skin conditions
  • Alleviate pain
  • Balance hormones
  • Improve digestion
  • Reduce cellulite and wrinkles

Adulterated oils contain synthetic chemicals or compounds which have been shown be harmful to our body just as synthetic store-bought cologne/perfume.

Let’s begin with the combinations listed below.  The spray is most often used and very convenient while the oil based recipes will have a much longer lingering scent.  Give one or two a try with the oils you may have on hand and go from there.  Your man will thank you.  My son adores the beard oil and cologne I make for him.  The scent is much stronger than store-bought varieties and much cheaper.  No fillers or additives makes them much more luxurious and longer lasting as you do not need to use as much.

    Good afternoon my lovely oily guru-witch doctor Roxy and thanks for this great post. Finally the ladies are remembering their hard-working, faithful and loving men who are in dire need of some smelly relief. I would go for the “nocturnal” cologne because I always liked the lavender and cedarwood scents. Would you please add a touch of garlic to fend off the wandering women vampires that feed from men at dusk? They’re getting dangerously younger-and more cheeky!
