Masculine Aromas Beyond the Perfume Scent

Let’s face it: who wants to talk about problems men face? In my not too long life, I was conditioned to believe that men are facing fewer problems than women. No wonder they are unable to admit they too need help, nurture and lots of aromatic love. So I will briefly expand on the aromatic aspect and let the reader fantasize about the other.

When I researched the topic about fragrances that are mostly preferred by men, I had my BIBI Aromatherapy Hat on so that the focus of search was on the therapeutic aspect more than anything else. You’ll be surprised to find these potent preventative and curative elixirs are very fragrant and can also be used as natural deodorant while beneficial to the skin microbiota.

If you would like to get a personal consultation from me and learn how to use the essential oils from the table below, you can contact me here. Let’s stay connected!

Bottom, whether you are a male or female you ought to yourself to practice self-care with plenty of rest, interests, hobbies and loving the life you have. Add some spark with Aromatherapy for better management and greater enjoyment.


If you have a sensitive skin, make sure you conduct a patch test before you splash essential oils on your skin. Furthermore, dilute 2-3 drops with a teaspoon of carrier oil of your choice and remember to check with a medical practitioner who specialises in aromatherapy before attempting to use any essential oil. This is especially important if you are pregnant, nursing or undertaking any special medication including homeopathic medication.
