Product usage ideas from the field - Coffee table book

What You Need:

1- Combine Fractionated Coconut Oil, Lavender, and Melaleuca essential oil in a pump bottle.

  1. For Curtis: Actually, the scent of the Melaleuca overpowers the Lavendar, so you won’t need to worry about smelling “girly”. 😉

  2. I use only glass to store anything with essential oils. I use aroma but I’m sure there are other places to find these products.

  3. Foe Lee Wilson – I use the hair care products every morning. when I put on the conditioner, I use the leftover on my hands as shaving cream. Works GREAT as shaving cream, and is VERY invigorating!!

  4. The blue bottle is glass, not plastic. :)

    Curtis, pure lavender smells a lot different than our gma’s bathroom potpourri. 😉

  5. the Doterra foaming face wash is excellent for shaving with…I’m told by my husband and several other guys who have tried it… Then use Balance as an aftershave lotion. It has fractionated coconut oil in it.

  6. Regarding the plastic parts- I’m pretty sure that at the dilution recommended (30 drops in 4 ounces of carrier)the plastic will be fine!

  7. Can grapeseed oil be substituted for FCO? It is just more readily available where I live and I use it exclusively in my rollers. Thanks!

  8. Ooh, these look great! I have been wanting to make lotion bars for a while, and it looks like you’re using some of my favorite ingredients.

  9. Is this a smell men enjoy? Can you compare it to something? I’m new to EO and haven’t purchased any oils yet.

  10. Would Peppermint be a good thing to add to this for the smell and the cooling sensation on the skin after shaving? I’m giving this to the men in my family for Christmas.
