Father's Day Gift Ideas
Father's Day will be here before you know it. Sometimes it is so hard to find gift ideas for the men in our lives. So here are some ideas to pamper your man, for your bearded man, for the active man, and for the outdoorsman in your life. Hopefully this helps make the hunt for the perfect gift a little easier!
For Personal Use & Pampering
There are several oils that are great for men because of their earthy, woodsy scents. They may enjoy diffusing the scents or using them as colognes. Also, the men in our lives deserve a little pampering, right? There are options for that as well!
Let's start with the 2023 Father's Day Specials. They are GOOD ONES!
Myst Wall Plug Diffuser + Midnight Forest Combo - This little diffuser is a hot item. This one sold out quickly, but hopefully they'll bring back the Myst diffuser again! It has three settings: motion activated, timed interval, and manual. No need to charge this little beauty. It's a great way to keep any room fresh! Midnight Forest essential oil is a wonderful fresh, woody blend.
Midnight Forest Bath Bar + Body Scrubber - The bath bar is infused with Midnight Forest Blend. It leaves skin feeling clean and rejuvenated. The scrubber helps exfoliate and leaves skin feeling smooth.
AromaTouch - AromaTouch is a massage blend. The oils in this blend were hand-picked for their ability to aid in relaxation and provide comforting aromas. It includes Cypress, Peppermint, Marjoram, Basil, Grapefruit, and Lavender. Want to pamper the man in your life? Get him AromaTouch and then give him a soothing massage with it.
Beard Oil - Sometimes doTERRA has Beard Oils available for purchase. When they don't you can easily make your own. Some oils that work great for Beard Oils are Cedarwood, Tea Tree, Patchouli, or Sandalwood. Just combine 5-10 drops of your favorite oil for skin and hair with 1 ounce of Fractionated Coconut Oil and shake them together. Put a few drops into your palms and massage it into the beard. You can also use doTERRA's Salon Essentials Root to Tip Serum.
Amavi Collection - Now as I was writing this, this collection was not available for purchase...BUT it often becomes available around Father's Day so I wanted to include it. And if it does become available you need to know about it because it is FANTASTIC! Here's what it includes.
Amavi Touch - This is a unique blend that includes Buddah Wood oil. It is exclusive to the Amavi blend. It has a grounding aroma and blends differently with everyone's individual chemistry.
Amavi After Shave Lotion - This is a soothing and calming lotion. It also hydrates and reduces the appearance of blemishes. And bonus! It can also promote firmer-looking skin.
Onyx Balance Bath Bar - This is made with Balance oil blend, shea nut butter, coconut oil, and palm kernel oil. This bar is specially made so it moisturizes and refreshes your skin.
Here are a few DIY cologne recipes you can make for your man. This way you know EXACTLY what they are putting on their body and know that there are no harmful chemicals in it. All of these recipes have about a 20% oil to 80% carrier oil ratio. You can always increase it a little if you want something a little stronger. First place the oils in a 10 mL bottle then fill it with Fractionated Coconut Oil. Gently shake to combine the ingredients and let them sit for 24 hours before using.

For the Active Man
doTERRA has some great products for people with active lifestyles. Whether they like to exercise or have physically demanding jobs, they would appreciate some of these items.
Deep Blue Rub or Deep Blue Stick - This stuff is AMAZING. The rub is a lotion that is both cooling and warming. It is great to massage into sore muscles. The stick has the same benefits as the rub, BUT it comes in a convenient stick so it is less messy to apply. The stick also contains Copaiba which has properties that can soothe sore muscles.
Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex - This is a combination of several ingredients that can provide soothing support to sore muscles and other occasional discomforts. This is great support for your joints and muscles.
Deep Blue Oil - You can also purchase this blend in the oil form. This is great for those who want the effect of Deep Blue, but want to have it in a more compact form. This can be massaged onto the skin with fractionated coconut oil, or you can use it to make your own massage oil.
Athlete's Kit - This kit includes the Deep Blue Rub (yay!) plus several oils that can soothe sore blends, support the immune system, boost energy, minimize the effects of seasonal threats, or help with relaxation. It includes Breathe (seasonal threats), On Guard (immune boost), Lavender (relax), Tea Tree (cleansing and rejuvenating), and Peppermint (energy).
For the Outdoors Man
Whether the father you want to celebrate likes to be outdoors exploring or working in the yard, there are several options for him.
TriEase - This is a great option for those who love to be outside, but have issues with seasonal threats. It is a blend of Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint in a soft gel. It supports clear breathing and supports a healthy immune system.
Bug Spray and Bug Bit Relief - There are lots of oils that can help repel pests. Some of these are TerraShield, Citronella, Geranium, Peppermint, Vanilla, Lemongrass, Lavender, Lemon Eucalyptus, Thyme, Basil, and Cedarwood. Here is a recipe for bug bite relief and bug repellant you can make for a gift.
