Keeping in shape is one of the pillars upon which manliness is built. No matter if you’re crushing some bench presses, tearing up the fairway, or hiking high enough to high five an eagle, you’ll want to keep these basics in your gym bag to help you get the most from every workout:
Treat those aches and pains
Massage Cool Azul™ Pain Relief Cream into your skin after a workout for a cooling sensation that provides relief from minor muscle and joint aches, arthritis, strains, bruises, and sprains. Backed with our Seed to Seal® promise of purity, this pain cream will have your muscles thanking you for ditching the synthetic ingredients.
Take care before and after exercise
Apply Deep Relief™ Roll-On to your neck and chest before working out to inspire you to push harder or apply it as part of a post-activity massage to target areas that need it most.
Boost your boring water
Reach for Lime Vitality™, Tangerine Vitality™, or Orange Vitality™ instead of sugary sports drinks to stay hydrated! Just
a drop or two in your glass water bottle will keep you coming back for more.
Grooming sounds like such a primitive term, making it perfect for manly men like us. Separate yourself from the pack by looking great and smelling like nature itself with these essential oil-infused solutions:
Smell good without perfume
Supposedly, perfume is called “cologne” when it’s for men, but let’s skip the nomenclature and ditch it altogether. Start with Shutran™, Patchouli, Cedarwood, Bergamot, Northern Lights Black Spruce, or Black Pepper to see what works best with your body’s chemistry, then create a combination that’s all yours. Dilute with a smidge of carrier oil and apply a drop or two to your wrists and neck for a masculine scent that lasts all day.
Keep that burly beard in check
Give those lovely locks a healthy sheen with some homemade beard oil. Check out our handy beard oil blog post for some blends from the guys who know best—Young Living employees! Bottom line: If your beard is oil-free, it’s just not living up to its potential.
