DIY Father's DayFather’s Day is right around the corner.  Need some inspiration for great homemade Father’s Day gifts?  I’ve got a handful of DIY gift ideas that I’m sure any Dad will enjoy!

1.  Homemade Aftershave Balm – no chemicals, just soothing and natural!

My husband loves this aftershave balm for his face and scalp, it leaves them both super soft.  And I love the way it smells too!   This is a simple recipe that you can whip up in no time: DIY Aftershave Balm

2.  Frankincense Natural Homemade Shaving Soap – for the vintage Dad in your life

This homemade shaving soap recipe from Grass Fed Girl has that old timey barbershop feel.  You’ll want to get a natural shaving brush and classic stainless steel razor to complete the gift.

3.  Homemade cologne – non-toxic and smells amazing!

In a 10ml roll-on bottle add 10 drops Idaho Blue Spruce and 5 drops Cedarwood essential oils.  Top off with your favorite carrier oil, I like sweet almond oil.

4.  Muscle Soothing Roll-on – for the athletic Dad in your life

In a 10ml roll-on bottle add 15 drops PanAway essential oil and top with your favorite carrier oil.  This is the perfect solution for a hard-working Dad with achy muscles and joints.

5.  Man Moisturizer – Dads get cracked heels too

This DIY Lotion is thick and perfect for soothing work-worn man hands and dry, cracked feet.  Add a few drops of Cedarwood essential oil for a woodsy scent.

All Natural DIY Aftershave Balm

all natural aftershave balmSoothe your freshly shaven skin with this cooling all natural aftershave balm.  This aftershave balm has a hint of a woodsy scent, so it is perfect for the guy in your life.  That being said, there is something about that outdoorsy scent that I find really appealing, so I have been known to borrow the jar of aftershave I made for my husband and use it myself!

My husband uses this on both his face and scalp to soothe and moisturize post-shave.
