Tips for getting your partner to be manly & oily:

For many of us, this will be our partner or husband, but I recognize that isn’t the case for everyone.  I am simply sharing from my experience.  Now, my husband tends to be skeptical about new information but is very trusting of my judgement.  I am not sure if this is his personality, they way he choses to behave as a husband or if it has to do with my training in anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, etc.  You may have a different dynamic in your family.

That being said, I didn’t need to convince him when I wanted to purchase a starter kit.  However, it was quite some time before he started using the oils himself.  It was likely over a year and a half before he started taking initiative and using the oils himself or on the kids without me around.  Here are some tips that have helped my husband come around and become an oily man.

  1. Don’t pressure, instead educate.  “I’m diffusing Frankincense, I love how it smells and it really helps me _______”
  2. Offer oils when he has a concern that you think an oil may address.
  3. Don’t be offended if he declines.
  4. If you have children, educate them on the oils too.  Our 5 year old will often tell my husband which oil she or her siblings need.
  5. Get some oils that directly benefit him.  Northern Lights Black Spruce is a winner around here: I use it in our homemade deodorant, and he loves it.  Progessence Plus is an oil for women, but I know he benefits in very unexpected ways when I use this oil (did you know I’m 33 weeks pregnant?” Shutran smells amazing and I have not yet met a man who does not appreciate this!
  6. Buy or make products that help him.  My husband does vendor fairs all summer long.  He spends the hottest and sunniest hours selling his wares, he comes into contact with lots of people and touches cash frequently while he works.  Some things I send with him are: Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier, Mineral Sunscreen Lotion, Grapefruit Lip Balm & Insect Repellant.
  7. Be willing to compromise (without compromising).  I an NOT a mouthwash gal, I just don’t like it.  My husband does, but there is now way I am buying that blue stuff.  So, every other month I add a product I don’t use: Thieves Mouthwash.  It’s not important to me, it’s important to him.  It’s a tiny splurge, but it shows I value his opinion and wishes and shows him some love and respect.  So, no scary ingredients in our house, but he’s worth spending the extra money to get something that he likes.

The Premium Starter Kit is Your Best Bet.

Some people need to consult about big purchases, and other’s don’t.  Partners can be skeptical and others aren’t.  You may need to budget out for a few weeks or months to invest the money in your family’s health and wellness, or maybe you can just click on over and get your kit now.

The Premium Starter Kit is for everyone for a few reasons

  1.  The everyday oils covers every body system and issue of day -to- day living.
  2. The kit is offered at 50% off the retail price.  An ultrasonic, cool-mist diffuser and 11 5ml bottles of oil, a handful of samples, a magazine and a product catalog for $160?  Do you realize PanAway by itself is $46 and Frankincense is $38? That means you get a diffuser for $5 off and the other 9 oils are free.
  3. You get a 24% lifetime discount with your membership, and they only thing you need to do to maintain is spend $50 once a year.
  4. When you have the kit, you get tons of education inside your box reminding you of ways to use the oils, so your investment in your health is actually going towards your health, not sitting in a box.
  5. Having a diffuser makes SUCH a big difference, yes topical and dietary oils are great, but people who only buy 1 or 2 oils and lack a diffuser miss out on the benefits of the oils: a great smelling space, the emotional support from diffusion.
