doTERRA for Dads: Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is just around the corner, y’all! Are you scrambling to figure out what to give your dad this year? I wanted to help you out with that. doTERRA has some great products that you can give to your dad for Father’s Day. I’ve got suggestions for all budgets too!

1. Father’s Day Collection: Every year, doTERRA comes out with a Father’s Day collection. The products change every year. This year doTERRA designed an essential oil blend, Island Mist, specifically for men. I bought one for my husband, and he really likes it! It comes with a diffuser clip, so they can hook it up on the vent in their car or truck. The blend is perfect for one the road, because it provides an herby and minty sensation with its citrus oils, peppermint oil, and spruce oil!

2. Deep Blue Rub: I know, buying your dad a muscle rub may sound unconventional. However, they will thank you SO much for this rub. Deep Blue Rub is designed with pain in mind. Wherever he is feeling tension and tightness, he can apply this rub for relief. Y’all, my husband loves this rub so much that we have a tube in our living room, our bedroom, his office at work, AND he keeps one in his truck. Trust me, he’s gonna love it!

3. Root to Tip Serum: This is for the bearded men. My husband actually used this product before I ever did. He’s got a pretty healthy beard, and he loves using this serum as an all natural beard oil. The oils in this serum will help keep his beard healthy and looking great! Ladies, if you can get him to share, try it out on your hair too!

4. Natural Cologne: Looking for an all natural cologne for your husband? Look no further than doTERRA essential oils! Men tend to gravitate towards woodsy oils, so try something like Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Vetiver, or even Balance for an all natural cologne. He use it straight from the bottle, or you can experiment with various oils and come up with a personal blend just for your guy in mind!

5. Athlete’s Kit: This kit is perfect for any active or athletic dad! It’s packed with the top products any athlete would need. It has doTERRA Breathe blend to support a healthy respiratory system. doTERRA OnGuard is included in the kit to keep your man healthy and strong while supporting his immune system. Lavender is in the kit to keep him calm and cool. Melaleuca, also in the kit, is known for its rejuvenating support on the skin. The kit also includes Peppermint that’s great when fatigue sets in or to help soothe any head tension. PLUS that Deep Blue Rub we chatted about? It’s in the kit too!

Back to Basics: Foundations for Your Health

Ok, friends, I feel like I should warn you before I dive into this post. It is not going to be the most entertaining post you’ve ever read. It’s not going to be the most enlightening post you’ve ever read. Honestly, it probably won’t be the most memorable post you’ve ever read either. So, why the heck am I even writing about this? Because it’s so foundational that everyone needs to read it. (So please read it! I promise the next post will be more entertaining.)

I’m going to be posting more often on this blog, on social media, and on my podcast about doTERRA essential oils, holistic health remedies, and some natural DIYs. I’m doing this because my heart is truly to show others that we really can take control of our health and wellness naturally. HOWEVER, it is extremely imperative that we get the foundation right. For example, I’ve chatted about how essential oils can help support your immune system, but if you’re filling your body with Twinkies, and not sleeping or exercising 24/7 then you’re going to run into some issues. We’ve got to get the foundation solid… Not perfect, because I love a cupcake every now and then, but solid. So, let’s dive in!

1. Nutrition: We’ve all heard it. “You are what you eat.” It’s so true. My normal routine and habits have gotten thrown off (Let’s be clear, I did the throwing. I’m not blaming circumstances) and I can feel it. It’s been more difficult to get up early in the morning, I’ve been less productive, and just kinda felt blah. I’ve just spent a couple of days getting back to my normal and I’m already feeling better. I’m not going to get into vegan/paleo/keto/gluten free argument. I will say, we all probably need to up our veggies. So start with that, and pound the water. Drink at least half of your body weight in ounces. Flavor it with some doTERRA citrus oils to keep it interesting.

2. Rest: There’s this Daniel the Tiger song that always get stuck in my head… “When you’re sick, rest is best, rest is best.” I wish I could sing it to you, because words on a page doesn’t do it justice, and if you don’t have kids in your house under the age of 5 you probably have no idea who Daniel the Tiger is. That’s okay, you get the point. When we’re sick, when we’re well, and every day we need adequate rest. Maybe if you’re in your twenties you can rock your day on 3 hours of sleep, but trust me, you will perform and feel much better if you get at least 6 hours of sleep in your system. Some people even feel the best when they get 10 hours of sleep, but let’s not get crazy. Find how you function the best.

3. Love Yourself: I know it may not seem like it at the time, but negative self talk doesn’t serve your body or emotions at all. You’re actually physically harming your mind and body when you beat yourself up with negativity. Be gentle and kind to yourself. Treat yourself with the same care you would treat someone else. Give yourself grace. Start speaking love and life over yourself. It sounds cheesy, and it even feels awkward when you start speaking love instead of hate, but get over the awkwardness. Your love for yourself will bleed over to how you love others. It will make the world go round. Ok, not that last part, but you get my point. If you want some science to back this up, then go and check out the book Switch on Your Brain by Dr. Caroline Leaf. It’s very eyeopening.

4. Movement: I used the word “movement” here instead of “exercise” because I feel like we associate exercise with grueling, intensive workouts that are only for the elite athletes. However you want to word it: movement, exercise, working out… you need to do it. Pick a movement you like: going for a walk in the woods, having a dance party with your kids, hard core sweat sesh, running, yoga, whatever. Find what you love and do more of that. Movement releases toxins in your body and pumps you full of endorphins. I can use all the endorphins I can get!

Now, I could go on and chat about supplements, probiotics, meditation, sunshine, and much more, but those will be other posts for later days. This truly was meant to be a very basic and general post. Help me out though: What are some foundational steps you take towards enhancing your health and wellness?
