5 Reasons Men Should Use Organic Oils
1) Beard & Hair
There are multiple essential oils that can keep a man’s hair healthy and well-groomed. Lavender oil, rosemary oil, peppermint oil, tea tree oil, and ylang ylang oil are 5 of Behale’s favorite hair strengthening oils.
Choose one or more of these oils, then mix 5-6 drops of each with a carrier oil such as jojoba oil or coconut oil. This blend can be massaged into the scalp. This mixture can also be combed through facial hair to add sheen and promote healthy growth.
Macadamia oil makes a great aftershave moisturizer. This oil is rich in oleic acid, which will leave his skin feeling soft and smooth. Macadamia oil is also an effective remedy for scar tissue and eczema, so it can help get rid of razor bump scars.
Here are three more oils that are great to use after shaving.
3) Smelly shoes & feet
Does your man have seriously smelly shoes? That bad smell is caused by bacteria. When feet sweat bacteria on the skin produce isovaleric acid. That process also produces odor.
Organic oils with antibacterial properties can help get rid of that odor. Lemon oil, orange oil, tea tree oil, and eucalyptus oil are all known as antibacterials. Add a few drops of oil to baking soda and sprinkle the mixture into his shoes. Let the shoes rest overnight and repeat if necessary.
If his foot odor comes from Athlete’s Foot try using rose geranium oil. Rose geranium oil has antifungal properties. Diluted rose geranium oil can be applied directly to the skin.
4) Fresh breath
Any organic oil with antibacterial properties can be used to make a natural mouthwash. Mix peppermint oil with any antibacterial carrier oil, such as coconut oil. Peppermint oil is high in menthol which gives that fresh, minty feeling, while the coconut oil does the heavy lifting by killing bad-breath-causing bacteria.

5) Post-Workout Massage
Do you know any men who complain about sore muscles after a workout? Black pepper oil is an effective massage oil because it causes a warming sensation and has a soothing effect. Black pepper has also been shown to relieve neck pain when used as a neck rub.
Jojoba oil and manketti oil are both moisturizing carrier oils that absorb well into the skin, so they are great carrier oils to blend with black pepper oil. Black pepper oil can also be mixed with his favorite lotion. Dilute your black pepper oil at 1% for skin application, then rub it onto any sore areas.
