Essential Oils For Guys Class


Hello and WELCOME to our Essential Oils and GUYS Class!

Thanks so much for tuning in to our class today/tonight! This is an online class that will take place right here!

Sometimes guys (LOVE YA GUYS) can tend to be less likely to talk about their health, ask questions, etc. So learning about oils and guys is a little bit more of a journey for me, than it was for me as a woman. So, tonight is going to be a two fold class.

The first half I want to share about how oils work for skeptical guys... how we can introduce them to the oils and (quickly!) show them the benefits.

The second half of the class will be all about men's health and how they can benefit from essential oils!


A lot of times it happens that ladies are the ones meeting and gathering and talking about oils. Whether that is online, in a friend's home, at a party, etc. So they are going home and bringing back this information to their man. Which may, in turn, lead to their man asking questions about the oils...Doubts can be raised in all our minds, sometimes (especially?) husbands.

An Amazing place to begin is with this book, 

"The Husband's Field Guide: Navigating Your Wife's Essential Oil Habit"…/8964.htm

This isn't a book just for guys! It answers questions about how the oils work, Young Living itself, from a biblical perspective, etc. It's an easy, and funny read and the author has an amazing ministry and is a dad of nine!


There tend to be three similar questions guys have about essential oils...let's explore them a bit here, shall we?

+ Are these Voodoo Oils?

Short answer: No! This isn't a tough one to argue any more. There's no chance that Young Living oils don't work. You really and truly couldn't pull the wool over this many people's eyes. There are so many amazing testimonies of health and wellness that people are shouting from the rooftops! These oils are changing things, how we take care of ourselves and our families. For EVERYONE: Old, young, male, female, sick, healthy, all experiences, all walks of life! Results don't lie.

There is so much research being done. More and more showing us how powerful and incredible these oils are. The Essential Oil Pocket Reference and The Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple are other great resources for your skeptical guy. These will help them (and you!) be confident that we are dealing with facts. Quickly, you are able to jump on and let your you guys know that. Results don't lie. We can talk all we want to but the truth is in what we see happening.

+ Are these oils cost effective?

Quickly people will jump on and say we just can't afford the oils, these will be too expensive for our family. YES, there is money involved here. We would be silly not acknowledge that. BUT, there is money involved everywhere. You can pay for oils, you can pay for medicine. You can pay now, you can pay later. You can pay to eat well or you can pay to eat poorly and save money there but end up paying for it (health, time and money) later. At the end of the day: we will all pay a certain amount of money for our health. We can't assume that somehow we can avoid paying for our health: it will end up catching up to us! It's that age old saying: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It's all about quality of life here, so much less time sick. It's not about NEVER feeling sick, never feeling bad. Our bodies don't work that way BUT it can drastically change how often that happens. Shortening and lessening those times each year our family gets sick is invaluable. This IS cost effective for us.

ALSO (!!!!!) Anyone who starts to get involved with sharing the oils: this becomes even more cost effective very quickly. Hello, free health care system. There are so many women who are having their oils, supplements from Young Living, etc (what they are doing to take care of their health) paid for!!!

+ Is this a trend? 

No. Essential Oils have been around far longer than the medications we use today. They have been around since the beginning of time! Plants are something God put here on earth as something to help take care of us. The way He designed things so perfectly, how could we ever doubt that this would work together beautifully for our health? Modern medicines are, often times, a feeble attempt to mimic to the effectiveness of these plants. In our desire to have things work fast and our mindset set as "we want it now and completely", we have tried to speed up the process of healing and relief....and we are paying the price for it. What we are doing right now isn't working: watch any commercial about a medication.... It starts off with a happy person and talks for 10 seconds about what the medication does and then the rest of the commercial is about the side effects. These possible side effects are often times circling back around to the original issue itself getting worse. Other commercials we see? Phone numbers you can call to be a part of a lawsuit if you took X medicine during X time: call this number to be part of this lawsuit.

The best way to not be a part of this system: NOT to be looking at how we treat our symptoms and diseases, dealing with them after the fact. Let's get ahead and support our bodies and systems so we don't ever get there and prevent those problems to begin with!


We need to remember that our guys need a WHY behind using the oils. We have our own why, our why for our kids... and here are four strong WHYs for lots of our guys!

+ Lowering Stress! This is HUGE for the men in our life! 
+ Increasing overall well-being. This can be both physical and emotional! There is A LOT going on with guys... not just us girls, in terms of emotional issues. They've got all those things we have, and sometimes more, bottled up in them emotionally. They may not express it as freely as we do but it's there!
+ Fitness: This is very high priority for lots of guys, something they want to work on. We have lots of members who use oils with their work outs, muscle support, the way they work out, the results they see!
+ Supporting Vital Systems: Organs and all the different ways they work. We can't ignore these systems until they start yelling at us! We can't put our organs through so much and then act so surprised when something happens - if we can support them ahead of time we will see completely different results in the long run.


Hormones are the starting point for so many other things. Until we get our hormones in balance it is hard to see results in the areas we are looking for results in! This is true for girls AND guys!
Studies show that low testosterone increases the likelihood of dementia, cardiac disease, stroke, heart attack, diabetes, and MORE. Other research shows that those with high testosterone have almost no chance of developing dementia. As they looked at people dealing with dementia and other similar problems: they almost always had low testosterone. Statistically brain issues like this are on the rise. We've got to start nourishing our brains and the way our body works so we can lessen those chances.

The second study shows that those with newly developed Type 2 Diabetes saw it drastically decrease after raising their testosterone levels. It's so important to remember: we can't just put a band aid on something and not do something that actually fixes the problem. There are things that are actually fixing the problem and things that are just getting us by. We want to fix our time and energy on the things that are actually going to correct what's going on.

"False studies have given it a bad reputation. Synthetic Testosterone has highly detrimental side effects to health." Adding synthetic testosterone can do the exact opposite of correcting what you're trying to correct.


What Young Living offers us in place of synthetic testosterone is Shutran. Shutran does not contain testosterone; but supports the body's ability to produce it. It's a blend of several amazing oils so it's actually useable by both men and women. One of the key ingredients in Shutran is Idaho Blue Spruce.

+ Idaho blue Spruce has been proven over and over again in supporting libido in both men and women. This is an issue that doesn't get addressed a lot and NEEDS to! This goes so far beyond physical health but goes into relationship and emotional health and we don't want these areas of be out of whack because it affects so many other things. It is also an incredibly grounding and balancing oil and offers emotional support.

+ Ocotea & Honoki - These oils help with normal inflammatory response. So many of our health issues going on today deal with inflammation. We need to be doing anything we can to be supporting a normal level of that in the body, to be supporting our ability to reduce it and maintain it at a normal level. Many of you may already use Ocotea for supporting healthy blood sugar levels.

+ Ylang Ylang and Davana: These two together are very supportive of our endocrine system! Our endocrine system may be hugely out of whack, and sadly is, for the majority of us. It can make us feel defeated and have very low energy. Ylang Ylang brings emotional stability and a leveling out feeling.

+ Coriander, Cedarwood & Lemon: These oils combined are cleansing, uplifting, and supportive of the brain and emotions.

+ Lavender: Increases the effectiveness of all the other oils in Shutran. It helps them all work together, smells amazing, and is also very calming.

Fun fact! Studies show that Shutran doubled the sexual energy in 30 days in 80% of men. Hi, hello. There are very few things that bring those results, and there are so many men in need of support in this area: not only physically but also emotionally. Confidence, relationships, and so many other areas!

Application: On the forearms: 4x a day, more if needed! Start slowly and work your way up.

Is there any reason a woman should not use Shutran? No. Just warn your man so he's prepared.


+ Ningxia Red (and Ningxia Nitro): There is a dramatic difference in our overall energy being on Ningxia Red, and the benefits don't stop there. Have your guy drink it for 30 days and see how he feels! The proof is in the pudding and this pudding is full of nourishment. It is AMAZING and it is quickly and easily absorbed into our body.

+ Omegagize: Good fats, feeding your brain. Lubricating your system so it works correctly! Omegazie vs. a regular Fish Oil: Some fish oils on the shelves in our favorite stores are low grade, oxidized, and can do more bad than good, fish oil alone can go bad very quickly. Omegazie is our therapeutic grade essential oils plus fish oil and the oils protect the fish oil and keeps it in a state whereit's good for the body to use and digest.

+ PD 80/20: This supplement offers dramatic support for the endocrine system. It helps maximize internal health and support the endocrine system. PD 80/20 contains pregnenolone and DHEA, two substances produced naturally by the body that decline with age. Pregnenolone is the key precursor for the body's production of estrogen, DHEA, and progesterone, and it also has an impact on mental acuity and memory. DHEA is involved in maintaining the health of the cardiovascular and immune systems.


+ MINERAL ESSENCE: Mineral deficiency results in so many problems that we think are something else. Everything from skin and nail issues, hair issues, headaches, even things like seizures and more, that you often times you can trace back to a mineral deficiency. Taking mineral essence isn't for the faint of heart: it is a strong taste. You could add it to Ningxia Red. It's taste is strong but so is its power. Even a few days on this you can see a dramatic difference. If leg cramps are something you or your man struggles with: this would be a great supplement for you to look into! According to two time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling PhD. "You can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment to a mineral deficiency." Ionic minerals are the most fully and quickly absorbed form of minerals available.

+ SUPER B: If you are feeling overtired or over run or dealing with emotional and adrenal issues: look into Super B! It doesn't take taking it for a long time to feel the difference.


+ MINDWISE: Brain food!! This combines exotic sacha inchi nut oil with a proprietary MindWise oil blend for a unique supplement that supports normal brain and heart function.* Harvested from the Peruvian Amazon, sacha inchi nuts are cold pressed to create a vegetarian oil with a high proportion of unsaturated fatty acids and an unmatched percentage of desirable omega-3 fatty acids (α-Linolenic acid). Medium chain triglycerides (MCT) and pure essential oils are added to complete the MindWise oil blend. The proprietary Memory blend features ALCAR, GPC, and bio-identical CoQ10, ingredients that have been studied for their beneficial health properties. Generous amounts of vitamin D3 and a unique delivery method create a premium supplement that supports normal memory function and overall cognitive and cardiovascular health.*

+ PURE PROTEIN COMPLETE: There are a few different options in terms of shakes, meal replacements, etc! They are all awesome and have so many nutrients and enzymes in them that our bodies need! Again, so many things on the shelves in stores that our guys are using are NOT what they should be! It is so important to research what is in those meal replacement shakes we are purchasing.


These are some of our favorite DIYs and also a fun guys guide for our men!!

These are some personal favorites!

+ Peace and Calming 2 & Stress Away: diffuse them all day long at work! 

+ Lemon, Lavender, Peppermint: combo in a roller (10 drops each, filled the rest of the way with v6)

Where to go from here with your guy? Start with ONE thing, ONE area that he needs support in and let him feel and see the difference! This is a long list of things that can all be beneficial but starting with one thing is better than what we were doing yesterday! The more we can work on: the faster we will clear results, but let's start small! Work on that one thing and BE CONSISTENT. Don't miss this! We need consistency, there is more power in that than there is in nailing the perfect formula of what to do. This gives our body something to work with and adjust to and our body will literally say "I am going to get this every day". Remember to tell your guys what we talk about all the time: this isn't about throwing a bunch at your body! A little goes a long way!
