What to give the Father in your life..

I don’t know about you, but I find men impossible to shop for. They don’t often give any hints or suggestions as to what they want.  Or, if it’s something they really want, they just go and get it!  So this year, instead of wandering through Home Depot or Lowes hoping for a gift inspiration, how about some non-traditional gifts?

Oils for him – Here are just a few suggestions, of course, he could use any of the oils in the Everday Oil Collection as well. Order here or check out the More About Young Living Page. 


This blend was initially formulated to help balance male energy and help regulate prostate function. However, it has also been used successfully in eliminating hot flashes for women. Generally, Mister is good for women age 30–45, while Endoflex is for women age 45+, and Dragon Time is for women up to age 30.

Single Oils Contained in This Blend:
