How about aromatherapy for men
Although the practice of using pure essential oils goes back many centuries, not many of us know that aromatherapy was officially founded by René-Maurice Gattefossé, known as the “father of aromatherapy”.
A French chemist who accidentally burnt his hand, René-Maurice covered his arm in lavender oil, the nearest liquid he could find. He noticed his hand healed very quickly with minimal scaring and he then went on to dedicate his life to studying aromatherapy and is accredited for coming up with the term “aromatherapy”.
We can all benefit from aromatherapy due to the therapeutic properties of pure essential oils, including men. Patchouli, sandalwood, bergamot, frankincense, cypress, ginger, black pepper, vetivert, and the citrus oils are favoured essential oils by men as they tend to be either woodsy or masculine scented fragrances.
Aromatherapy for men benefits:
Hair loss: Lavender essential oil is said to help minimise hair loss and is found to be a safe and effective treatment. Try brushing the hair and scalp regularly with a soft bristle brush to stimulate the scalp.
Sports rub: Before participating in sports a rub can warm the muscles before exercise and helps to alleviate tense or aching muscles, joint and arthritic pain and makes muscles suppler. Try using our Muscular Relief Synergistic Blend with a carrier oil, Deep Tissue Massage Balm or Muscular Relief Massage, Body & Bath Oil.
In addition your favourite essential oil can be enjoyed in massage, in a burner or vaporiser in the office or home, in a foot soak or in the bath!
Aromatherapy for men is just great.
