It’s no secret that I love my diffuser and my essential oils. They make my home smell great without using harsh chemical air fresheners, and it comes with health benefits. But a lot of the blends I enjoyed diffusing were a bit on the floral side. My husband liked the concept of diffusing oils, but every once in a while he wanted something a bit more masculine. So I started experimenting, and came up with four man cave approved blends.
What You’ll Need
A diffuser, of course. This is the one I use. I like it because it’s compact, so it doesn’t take up a ton of space. Also, you can run it with or without the lights. And it’s easy to clean and maintain.
And you definitely need essential oils. I use Now brand. They’re a high quality oil without the big price tag of some other brands out there. This is a great starter kit.
A couple of notes: Always use filtered water in your diffuser. We have very hard water and it will destroy your diffuser. If you add witch hazel to the water, the oils will disperse better and the scent will last longer.Looking for more masculine diffuser blends? Try these man cave approved ideas!Click To Tweet
