For Every Man
No matter if the man in your life works in an office, on a farm, a gym, or Wall Street… he should still smell good, right?? Shutran is the PERFECT blend for EVERY kind of man.
Shutran is a blend of ten different essential oils specifically designed for men to boost feelings of masculinity and self-confidence. This blend is also found in our entire line of Shutran products, giving your man everything he needs to stay fresh and clean from head to toe.
- Shutran Essential Oil – perfect to use as a cologne.
- Shutran 3-in-1 Men’s Wash – a multi-purpose shower gel that cleanses everything from head to toe.
- Shutran Bar Soap – 100% plant-based soap containing activated charcoal, which gives it amazing deodorizing and cleansing properties.
- Shutran Beard Oil – specifically formulated to soften facial hair while moisturizing the skin underneath.
- Shutran Shave Cream – contains hydrating oils and moisturizing botanicals used to reduce razor burn and nicks by delivering a frictionless shave.
- Shutran Aftershave Lotion – a blend of Shutran oil, coconut, argon, and jojoba oil along with dandelion extract and aloe vera to calm and soothe skin after shaving.
You can use all these products to create a custom gift set for every man in your life!
We mentioned that Shutran is great to use as a cologne, but maybe your man wants a scent of his own. It is super easy to do it yourself by grabbing one of these roller bottles and some V-6 vegetable complex to use as a carrier.
Oils like Pine, Northern Lights Black Spruce, Valor, Cypress, and Cedarwood are a great starting point for crafting those custom blends. Here are a couple recipes from the Young Living Blog that you could start with.
- Combine oils in an empty 5-ml bottle until your essential oil blend is balanced. Aim for 30-45 drops of oil in total.
- Once you like how the blend smells, fill the rest of the bottle with V-6.
- Insert the roller fitment and put the cap on.
For a deep and spicy scent, this rich combination adds just enough mystery.
Experience a spicy kind of clean with just a hint of sweet – perfect for all undercover operations.
If you pop over to the blog, you can find printable labels for each recipe!
DIY Beard Oil
Is your man rocking a great beard? Maybe he likes to keep it neat and sleek, or he is going for the shaggy, burly look. Either way, keeping that facial hair smooth, clean, and smelling fresh is key.
Shutran Beard Oil is a great choice and if you are not a DIYer, it is the best choice! However, making beard oil yourself is another way to create a perfect scent and use oils specifically targeted to your man’s needs. If you want to take a shot at this DIY, consider giving some of these oils a try…
- Bergamot – a calming oil that also supports hormonal balance and is uplifting
- Cedarwood – woodsy, yet a little sweet, and great for conditioning
- Cinnamon or Clove – provides a spicy, warm, comforting aroma
- Lavender – great for the hair and skin
- Lemon – energizing and uplifting… but also photosensitive, so use only at night
- Peppermint – pairs great with Lemon for the perfect get-up-and-go scent
- Pine – a woodsy scent for wherever you go
- Rosemary – a fresh, invigorating scent that goes great with any other oils listed here
- Tea Tree – amazing properties for maintaining healthy skin and hair and reducing the appearance of blemishes… yes, men get them too!
To make your beard oil, all you need is one ounce of carrier oil and 6-10 drops of any combination of essential oils listed above. Combine these in a 1-ounce glass dropper bottle and use after a shower when the beard and skin are fresh and clean.

When your active man goes a little overboard and is a little too active, you can also gift him some products that will aid in his recovery.

It contains nothing but plant-based goodness that will penetrate deep into those muscles and joints, proving to be an instant solution for effective relief.
If you prefer gel over cream, grab the Cool Azul Sports Gel, which is also great to use before and after physical activity.
The Active & Fit Kit will provide your recovering man with everything he needs all packed into a convenient carrying case! Not only will he get the Cool Azul Sports Gel, but he will also receive 5-ml bottles of Deep Relief, RC, Thieves, Copaiba, and Peppermint Vitality essential oils + 3 AromaGlide roller fitments, making application a breeze.
An Outdoor Man
Maybe your man prefers to head into the great outdoors instead of going out on the town. If so, we have him covered too! Since essential oils come from nature, it makes them the perfect outdoor scent (or even repellent) for any man heading out into the woods.
Start off with a bar of Sacred Mountain Moisturizing Soap. This soap is soothing and great for dehydrated skin and contains Sacred Mountain essential oil, which is a blend of Black Spruce, Ylang Ylang, Idaho Balsam Fir, and Cedarwood.
Make your own custom DIY Outdoor Scent using any combination of woodsy scents such as Pine, Cypress, Cedarwood, or Northern Lights Black Spruce. If possible, choose oils from plants that grow in the area in which you live. All you need is about 20 drops mixed with 2 ounces of water in a spray bottle.
Finally, you can add a bottle of Young Living’s Insect Repellent. All- natural ingredients, pure essential oils, and no synthetic chemicals make this a great choice for keeping your man pest-free while he is enjoying the great outdoors. For convenient application, try the new Insect Repellant Wipes!
A Manly Man
Is your man always working on some new project, building or fixing something, or always getting his hands dirty? Then your man needs Lemon essential oil in his life! Seems like a simple gift idea, but this one little bottle is a powerhouse oil and can do so much! Here are some ideas . . .
If your man works with his hands, they get dirty! Mix ½ cup of sugar and 2 tbsp of your favorite carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil, sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil), then add in 15-20 drops of Lemon essential oil. Store in a glass container and use about 1 Tbsp per use. This combo gets those grimy, greasy, sticky hands shiny clean in no time.
Lemon oil is great for removing the sticky residue left behind from adhesives, grease, sap, or anything else your man may come in contact with. Simply add a few drops to a cloth and watch the goo be gone.
So… your man probably gets a bit stinky at times. Whether it’s the damp clothes from being in the woods, the odor of fresh fish from a day on the lake, the musty smell from being in the garage, or the shoes (nothing more needs to be said about the shoes), Lemon will become your man’s best friend for keeping things smelling fresh and clean.
Make a spray using equal parts water and vinegar (1 cup each) and adding in 5-10 drops of Lemon essential oil. Use on clothes, hunting or fishing gear, or your husband as needed.
Make a powder by combining 2 Tbsp of baking powder with 10 drops Lemon essential oil and sprinkling 1 Tbsp in each shoe.
