Supplies for your DIY Men’s Essential Oil Cologne

You’ll need a rugged / masculine container for your men’s cologne. Here are a few of my favorites:

This camo spray bottle is perfect for your men’s cologne. It also comes in a roller. You can buy one or both.

10ml Essential Oil Roller Ball

If camo isn’t his style, pick up a pack of these ultra cool black rollers for your cologne.  I’m obsessed with these! They are sleek and masculine.

Carrier Oil

You’ll need carrier oil to top off your rollers. You can use whatever you like but I don’t recommend using anything with a strong scent which would affect the overall smell of your cologne. I recommend fractionated coconut oil or Jojoba Oil – which is what I use.

I have used this Jojoba Oil (that I order from Amazon) and my husband loves it.

Feel free to customize the blend based on your man’s likes, and what doTERRA essential oils you have on hand.  

You can add more essential oils if you feel like the scent isn’t strong enough.

Tip: To see if you like the scent, make a small sample first. If you like it, make a larger batch. You can always add more oils to the mixture later.
