Now, you are probably thinking that all essential oils smell girlie…. WRONG!  There are tons of oils that do not smell floral or fruit-like at all! In fact, many oils will offer many health benefits as well! Here are some suggestions:


Earthy smells:  frankincense, rosemary, Northern Lights black spruce, Balsam fir, cedarwood, tea tree, vetiver      (these are all grounding)

Herby: rosemary, peppermint, basil, thyme, lavender, sage, clove, cinnamon, spearmint, wintergreen      (these are all calming and grounding)

Citrusy and bright: lemongrass, lemon, lime, bergamot, citronella, grapefruit, orange  (these are all energizing)

*Note*- I ONLY use Young Living Essential Oils.  They are one of the few brands out there that use steam distillation or cold pressing (NO harmful chemicals) for distillation, they are 100% PURE, and they are VERY potent.   A little goes a LONG way! To order, click HERE.

You can make a roller or a spray version.  To make a spray, follow all directions for the roller recipe, and follow the additional steps for the spray:

Here’s what you need:

Roller Recipe

Spray Recipe

  • 1 tablespoon vodka or witch hazel    (this helps the spray diffuse)
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable glycerin     (this helps act as a surfactant to keep the scent on)
  • double the amount of essential oils used in the roller recipe    (this can be adjusted to preference)
  • 2oz glass spray bottle (you can get these HERE)
  • water

Here’s what you do:

For the roller 

  1. Add all ingredients to the roller bottle and shake to mix! Roll on neck and pulse points.

For the spray

  1. Follow the directions for the roller and add in the additional ingredients for the spray recipe. Add water to fill the bottle.
  2. Spray away and smell GREAT!

  1. I have always loved making my own body sprays and fragrances, but haven’t tried to much to make any for my husband because they always seem to end up on the girly side. I am definitely going to have to give some of these blends a try for him <3

  2. Wow Tara! This is fantastic! I never dreamt of making a men’s cologne – what a very clever idea! I’ve no idea how you find time to create such wonderful things whilst being a teacher??… UK teachers don’t have time for anything except teaching! Don’t forget to add your link to Fiesta Friday so everyone can find you! 🙂
