fathers day diy gifts
With Father’s Day rapidly approaching, we find ourselves with the same dilemma of always: What do we get them? Another neutral color shirt? A new razor identical to the last? These are the same mundane gifts we’ve been giving them all their life, and maybe this time we can spice it up a bit more than they’re use to.

We need to take into consideration certain aspects of a man’s life:

  • Balancing work, family, and payments takes a toll on them and causes stress. They may not be as vocal about the issues as women are, but they still go through stressful situations that take have an effect on them.
  • Men like to be nurtured (whether they admit it or not), they like to look good, and they like to smell pleasant. They may not act like it, but these are factors that play a role in who they are.
  • They are well aware of what goes into their body and how it affects their wellbeing. When they are given the opportunity to be healthier, they’ll take it in order to maintain the best health.
  • They won’t normally take an hour in the bathroom getting ready, so having a product that ensures their satisfaction while taking the least amount of time from their day, will prove to be most valuable.
  • They do have feelings, and seeing that you didn’t get them the same thing every other dad gets will make them appreciate you for your thoughtfulness.


If the man of the house is exhausted during the day, but has a hard time sleeping at night, creating two products will help them get through the day. One for the evening and one for their morning shower.

 Close-up of coconut oil on the wooden spoon. Beauty and cuisine.
People are always asking me for essential oil advice, and this time of year, many of them are begging for a solution to their dry skin, hair, and nails. So, I came up with a recipe that could eliminate all of those winter weather woes.

The secret ingredient? Coconut oil!

Here’s what makes it so great:

– It’s a powerful moisturizer

Without getting too technical, coconut oil’s chemical composition gives it the power to penetrate your skin much deeper than other moisturizers can. It goes so deep that it can actually strengthen your tissues — instead of just leaving a greasy layer of film on your skin.

– It sloughs away dead skin cells

After you rub it in, your skin will look soft, smooth, and radiant — instead of dry and flaky. Best of all, it does all of this without any harsh scrubbing!

– It’s not just good for skin

Coconut oil can have the same super-hydrating effects on your nails and hair.

But as powerful as coconut oil is, my moisturizer recipe harnesses the power of a few different essential oils. That way, you can see a variety of great results.

I mix together:

1 cup organic virgin coconut oil

15 drops of rose absolute

25 drops of orange

25 drops of frankincense

Rose absolute is a great emollient, meaning that it will make your skin super soft and supple.

Orange is particularly good at soothing extra-dry skin, so it’s the perfect choice for anyone who’s dealt with a harsh winter.

Frankincense actually stimulates your skin to create new cells — and those new cells look and feel a whole lot better than the old ones! It also fights off inflammation that makes your skin look and feel uncomfortable.

Once you blend everything together (and store it in an air-tight container) here’s the best way to use it:

– Exfoliate first

Coconut oil penetrates deep into your skin, but give it a helping hand by exfoliating dead cells beforehand. Mix a tablespoon of this moisturizer with a tablespoon of sugar to create an all-natural body scrub!

– Incorporate it into your bath routine

Massage this mixture into your hair before you wash it. Then, apply it to your skin and nails after you bathe — while they’re still warm and soft — so that it absorbs even better. Feel free to use it in place of your regular facial moisturizer, too.
