Aromatherapy for Men: DIY Beard Balm, Hair Pomade and More!

Aromatherapy for Men Beard Balm & Hair Pomade DIY

Have you ever thought about aromatherapy just for men? Fathers Day is just around the corner. We don’t often take the time to let the men in our lives know how much we appreciate everything they do for (and with) us. My dad taught me to ride my first bike, took me fishing, built snow dragons and taught me the value of hard work. My husband supports all my ambitions, is a fantastic Daddy to our two girls and also happens to be my best friend. I have many friends who are also amazing men in their own right.

I am guilty of not making it known how much I appreciate these wonderful men in my life. So, why not make something special to show your man how much you care. Perhaps you’re making something for your Dad, your significant other or your best friend.  You can also try your hand at DIY Beard Balm or this article with DIY Shoe Deodorizers, DIY Aftershave, or Homemade Cologne!  

And for even more essential oil DIYs for the man in your life, head over to Wise Beards for his awesome guide to DIY beard oil recipes (using essential oils)

  1. I am excited to use the Energizing Inhaler recipe when my next order comes in. Anyone use it and like it or have suggestions?


  2. This is perfect! My husband and I were talking about creating a beard oil for him to use, and the link you provided gave great info. Thank you so much!

  3. Made the beard oil yesterday for my husband’s summer beard (he’s a teacher and keeps it shaved all year long). He loved it. He chose sandalwood and relax as the essential oils for it and it smells great.

  4. Hi Christina! Any suggestions to use with the Cedarwood instead of Sandlewood. Haven’t ordered it yet 🙂

    1. They aren’t a direct replacement for each other therapeutically – but for “manly” scents you can certainly use cordwood with good results.

  5. Do you have any recipes for men that are similar to “Shave Secret”? I wanted to make some for my dad & husband.
