It’s not too hard to notice that when it comes to Essential Oils, more women use them than men. I’m not too sure why that is – in some ways, I think that women are more health-oriented, and men are programme to have good food and a great power tool.
At least my husband is that way.
When it comes to personal health, men should be leading their families in the areas of proper wellness and all things healthy – and even though we are different (men vs. women), Essential Oils are tools created for both genders.
Essential Oils are wonderful ways for men to boost confidence, support their body after a rough workout, relax their senses and even help to support their immune, respiratory, digestive and circulatory systems.
Essential oils help to promote a level of well being – which has been long lost in our society today. Most people are after a cheap fix – whether that be food, body care or their own health. While some may dismiss essential oils as hippie oils, or snake oils, those of us who know and use them regularly can tell you that they DO work wonderfully to help keep our bodies above the wellness line.
With that in mind, we rounded up the ten most popular essential oil products for men – of course, this list will differ depending on who you speak with. Nonetheless, they are what we find to be the most helpful in our lives and we hope you will find that true for you, too.

Remember that many oils that sold in chain stores are largely synthetic – the smell is a mere imitation, but the therapeutic properties are not present.
To get started using therapeutic grade essential oils for your family, I recommend purchasing the Young Living Premium Starter Kit. It includes 11 of the most popular Young Living singles and blends, a home diffuser, and samples for sharing.
