Dads do a lot every day for their families; so this Father’s Day, make your special guy feel taken care of! Below we’ve got some fun, Young Living-inspired ways to show the fathers and fatherly figures in your life that you appreciate them.

1. Give Dad the gift of essential oils

From tackling daily tasks, motivation, or even fitness, essential oils can play a major role in every man’s life.

Not sure which oils would be best for Dad? We’ve got your back! Here are a few essentials that our oil-loving dads adore.

Pine essential oil 

The woody, invigorating scent of Pine essential oil is a favorite for men’s cologne.

Create a custom roller bottle for Dad while repurposing an empty essential oil bottle. For a fresh and woodsy fragrance, add 12 drops Pine, 12 drops Juniper, 12 drops Cypress, and 2 drops Peppermint to the empty oil bottle. Fill the bottle with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex, insert an AromaGlide™ Roller Fitment, and put the cap on. Read this blog post for more tips on creating DIY cologne blends.

Peppermint essential oil

The crisp scent of Peppermint essential oil refreshes your environment and your senses.

This oil is a favorite for a boost of pick-me-up scent, whether your dad needs a kick of motivation to finish a project, hit that gym class he’s been talking about, or keep on track while working from home.

Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oil

The rich, woodsy aroma of Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oil is another wonderful addition to your dad’s collection.

If your dad loves the outdoors, he’ll love diffusing this scent in his office to bring the outside in!

Deep Relief essential oil blend 

A blend of nine invigorating-smelling essential oils such as Wintergreen, Dorado Azul, and Peppermint, Deep Relief™ Roll-On is a must-have gym companion for Dad.

He can breathe it in during exercise for a rejuvenating scent or roll it on afterward for a refreshing, cooling sensation.

Cedarwood essential oil

Cedarwood essential oil has a warm, woodsy aroma that creates a comforting, uplifting experience.

This oil will be a welcome addition to your dad’s nighttime routine, as he can diffuse it to invite a calming atmosphere and support relaxation at the end of a busy day.

Shutran essential oil blend

A blend of empowering scents, Shutran™ is specially formulated for men to soothe and condition their skin and beard.

If your dad is worried about the harsh chemicals in commercial colognes, Shutran’s rich, woodsy aroma offers a clean alternative he can feel confident wearing.

Valor essential oil blend 

This blend’s woodsy, positive scent comes from a combination of Northern Lights Black Spruce, Blue Tansy, and Frankincense, making Valor® a bold and balanced pick for your dear dad.

He can chuck it in his car, desk drawer, or gym bag to carry the calming, uplifting aroma on the go. If Dad loves this powerful blend, our Valor Roll-On, and Valor Moisturizing Soap also make thoughtful gifts!

2. Serve a homemade meal

Sometimes all it takes to put a smile on someone’s face is a home-cooked meal. If he’s the kind of guy who usually takes the reins in the kitchen or if older kids want to make him an unforgettable meal, we have recipes that cooks of any level can manage!

Check out our healthy breakfast ideas or our tasty green chile chicken enchilada recipe for a dish that’s sure to impress. If you want to go the extra mile, pair your homemade meal with a refreshing mocktail.

3. Get Dad ready to grill

Is your dad the kind of guy who spends his summers by the grill? Grab him that grill gadget he keeps talking about and mix up some or oil-infused sea salts for a tasty, customized gift.

4. Gear him up for game day

 Help him get the most out of his workout and keep up with the kids with the Active & Fit Kit. Designed by Young Living in partnership with athletes, this fitness kit includes Cool Azul™ Sports Gel and essential oils such as Copaiba, Peppermint Vitality™, and R.C.™ in a conveniently sized bag, so he can grab them before hitting the court or gym.

5. Enhance his style

Funky, funny, and colorful socks are more popular than ever! Instead of a tie this year, help the kids pick out a fun pair of socks he can wear to the office, the job site, or on a date with Mom. Complete the gift with a bottle of Thieves® essential oil blend to rub on the bottoms of his feet to keep them fresh throughout the day.

In case you’re curious about the benefits of using essential oils on your feet, here’s a blog post that covers all the details.

6. Spoil him with self-care essentials 

Dads deserve to be pampered too! If Dad has worn the same aftershave for as long as you can remember, give him the gift of a new aftershave lotion and shave cream. For the bearded fathers, gift our softening Shutran™ Beard Oil.

Made with a custom blend of essential oils, Shutran’s masculine scent is a key component of many of our personal care products, including this moisturizing bar soap and multitasking 3-in-1 Men’s Wash.


7. Spruce up his ride 

If Dad’s car, truck, or minivan could use a little freshening up, get him a portable USB diffuser or Viya™ Car Diffuser instead of an overpowering, synthetic air freshener. Pair it with a bottle of his favorite essential oil to make his commute a little better!

Want to get him a few different oils he can diffuse together instead? This post has some of our favorite blends to diffuse in the car.
