This post contains affiliate images. It happens every single year and yet I am perplexed when it comes to choosing a gift for my husband for Father’s Day. Why are men so hard to shop for?! Every year, I type in “Father’s Day gift ideas” in my search engine. Every year, I get the same suggestions.
No, my husband doesn’t always wear cuff links. Yes, he already has a rugged case for his mobile phone. And I guess he could use another mug. Right? Well, you know what? Not this year! Some of the best gifts are the ones made with love. I am always whipping up soaps and body scrubs. I figured, “Wouldn’t my husband like that too?”
My kids and I got busy in the kitchen and made these Men’s Essential Oils Soap Bars. They smell absolutely divine. The soaps are made up of frankincense and patchouli. They have a beautiful glimmer to them all thanks to the mica coloring powder we used. I love that we created these as Easy Homemade Essential Oils Soap For Men a family.
