13 Easy DIY Essential Oil Recipes Men Will Love

Essential oils aren’t just for women! Men love using them too.

Some manly essential oils include Patchouli, Sandalwood, Oakmoss, Bay, Cypress, Ginger, Black Pepper, Vanilla, Vetiver, and citrus oils.

Some of the best essential oils for men are also some of the more popular oils that almost everyone enjoys like lime, frankincense, eucalyptus, lavender, and peppermint.

I know there is a tendency to ignore floral essential oils when making blends for men however, floral essential oils can lift and balance other oils.

Essential Oils For Men

Masculine Diffuser Blends 

The combination of diffuser blends you can make is endless.

My best advice is to diffuse 1 oil first then branch out to some of these blends. 

Any single oil or blend you like can be used as perfume or cologne. 

If you don’t have a diffuser this one on Amazon is one of my favorites and it is less than $20. There are over 36,000 reviews for it!
