I started a blog series titled “Dudes & Oils” on January 5th. I feel there is a misconception around essential oils. I believe many men hear “essential oils” and totally check out, assuming they’re just for women!
But men use essential oils as well!
I sought out some mighty great men to interview about their journey into using essential oils. If you have a guy in your life who is hesitant to start using oils, have them read these! It just might help them get over the hump, whatever it may be.
This week, I’m sharing my dad’s answers to my questions. If I had to pick a parent that loved oils more… I’d pick my dad for sure. He has jumped into a more natural way of life with both feet, realizing health and wellness starts with what we are putting on and ingesting in our bodies. He uses oils and oil infused products daily.
Bio: I am a 65 year old man, married 36 years, father of a daughter, grandfather of a 2 1/2 year old boy. I’ve worked with my hands most of my life, which has kept me in good health with the exercise I get. I am always looking to create and have fun with the arts. I cannot wait to retire and create with my daughter and grandson.
1. When did you start using oils?
I started using Young Living essential oils in September of 2014.
2. What convinced you that you would use these oily products for the long haul?
The history of the oils. They are well documented and when you talk to a distributor who has a lot of the knowledge on oils it’s very convincing.
Also oils are natural. Something we don’t use enough of.
3. Why is it important that you use these products over other products found in stores?
You can find out easily about the oil, the type of plan and what it does. With store products the ingredients are questionable and not natural.
4. What is your favorite Young Living product and why?
That’s a hard one. I believe the Ningxia Red and Life 5 probiotic. Ningxia gave me confidence, energy and has helped maintain healthy blood pressure. The probiotic does what a good natural probiotic does 🙂 ahhhh
