Men are relatively new to the essential oil space. It was off-limits for a while probably due to some long held belief that essential oils weren’t manly or some similar ridiculously outdated thought. Luckily that mindset is shifting in a huge way as guys see that essential oils have real benefits, increase their quality of life and may even make them more attractive to women.
Let’s talk about the top three oils that we love:
1: Peppermint Oil
Peppermint oil is vasodilating which means that it improves blood flow. This is hugely important if you are concerned about keeping the hair you have and improving your scalp/hair health. In addition, peppermint oil is antimicrobial so it helps clean while giving you that menthol tingly feeling. Here’s a natural shampoo that’s packed with just the right amount of peppermint oil. Peppermint oil is also good for your skin health overall. Although peppermint oil is a vasodilator, it is also a vasoconstrictor in certain instances, especially if applied to your skin after exercise. This means that peppermint oil actually has the ability to constrict blood vessels and skin. This means peppermint oil could also help us guys have tighter healthier looking skin. Here’s a natural body wash infused with peppermint essential oil and citrus oil.
2: Eucalyptus Oil
This one is one of our favorites for a lot of reasons. It has anti-inflammatory characteristics which explains why it can give us a calming sensation when applied to the skin in a slightly diluted form like with this body wash. The best quality overall, is the calming sensation it gives our entire nervous system and body. This is especially enhanced when steam is added to the mix and you inhale the amazing, calming and rejuvenating oil in the shower. Our company, New Man Revolution, actually designed this body wash with eucalyptus and spearmint oil so that every use would give guys the steam-room sensation.
3: Cedarwood Oil
Cedar is antifungal and anti-inflammatory by nature. This makes it amazing for uses in natural shampoo and natural body washes. Cedarwood oil is also known to actually be able to stimulate growth deep within the hair follicle. Because of this we recommend getting a shampoo with cedarwood oil ASAP. The pro-tip here is when you use it, massage the natural shampoo into your scalp and then let it sit for 1-2 minutes before rinsing it away. This stimulation of rubbing it in awakens your scalp, increases blood flow and brings vital nutrients to the surface of your scalp. Then leaving the natural, cedarwood oil shampoo on your scalp for a few minutes gives it the opportunity to help stimulate the follicle thereby protecting the hair you have. As with anything, this isn’t a miracle for hair growth, it just ensures that you are giving your hair the best possible chance to look and feel as healthy as possible.
