Real Men Use Essential Oils
Somehow there is an incorrect notion happening that essential oils are only or primarily for the ladies. Although women have a higher number of scent receptors that help them enjoy the scents more; the beneficial effects of essential oils can and should be enjoyed by men too.
There are also some out there who think that all essential oils smell fruity, flowery, or too girly to be used by real men, and that is just another myth. This presentation is going to break down some of the best essential oils for guys and why they should be using them.
Let’s start with the why you should be using essential oils! There is no secret that men and women view and treat their health quite differently from each other. I grew up in a house full of men, I have lived with a man for the last 19 years, and I am in the process of raising a man.
The truth is guys, I know you hate the doctors, I know you can shake it off or rub some dirt on most issues and they will automatically go away, but I also know that there are women out there who want you to take care of yourselves. That there are wives who want to spend their golden years with you and that there are kids who need their dad to be around for a long, long time. All of that boils down to the fact that you can’t wait until there is something serious going down to start to take care of yourselves.
The top causes of death, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, among adult men in the U.S. are heart disease, cancer, unintentional injuries (you know the stuff that duct tape can’t fix), chronic lower respiratory disease and stroke.
The Men’s Health Forum website had some staggering men’s health statistics.
- One in every 5 men will die before the age of 65
- 75% of premature Heart Disease deaths are men
- 67% of men are overweight or obese
- 4 out of every 5 suicides are men
- Men are more likely to smoke, drink too much, eat too much red meat and salt. They are also likely to eat too few fruits and veggies.
- Men are twice as likely to suffer from liver disease
- 1 in every 4 men suffer some type of sexual dysfunction caused by low testosterone or unbalanced hormones.
The good news is that making a few lifestyle changes can significantly lower your risk for these common killers. Enter essential oils. Like women, men can’t escape the need to balance hormones, relieve stress, flush toxins, and nourish healthy cells, organs, and body tissues.
That is exactly what essential oils do for our bodies.
