Men’s Grooming Products for the Other Half
Last week, we shared our favorite DIY men’s grooming products for our tops. In case you didn’t notice, those men’s grooming products covered mostly the top extremities. Bottoms are just as important, so this week we’re sharing our favorite men’s grooming products for the parts of your body from the neck down.

Men’s Grooming Products: Recipes and Instructions
These DIY men’s grooming products will not only save you from looking older, they’ll save you money. In small quantities, these organic products can be expensive. Our trick is to buy them in bulk from Amazon and choose the cheapest shipping option, which is often free. Many of the same ingredients are used in the various recipes, so that’s a cost saver, too.
1. Body Scrub
This recipe is so easy, we don’t know why anyone buys body scrubs for their grooming products. We use either three parts coarse salt or course sugar and one part either Almond Oil, Hemp Seed Oil or Olive Oil. To make a manly scent, we add Tea Tree Oil or Sandalwood Oil.
2. Body Oil
We use this oil daily. It’s important to stay moisturized and Colorado’s climate is dry. This simple recipe is great for keeping us moisturized and smelling good.
- 3 parts organic, Coconut Oil
- 1-part organic, Hemp Seed Oil
- 5 drops Tea Tree Oil per 4 oz mixture of the above
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and pour with a dispenser into an empty bottle.
Coconut oil rehydrates the skin and is especially helpful in the winter. Hemp Seed Oils fights skin irritations and abrasions. Tea tree oil helps cuts, scrapes, insect bites, itchy skin and others skin problems.
3. Natural Deodorant
We know. It’s the scent of a man that gets us aroused, but the skunk of a man can scare even the burliest of bears. This Frugally Sustainable Deodorant keeps the skunk away. The Black Pepper, Ginger Oil and Nutmeg Oils sound extra tasty, too. Of course, you can always go with the surefire alternative of mineral salts that fight odor-causing bacteria.
4. Hand Cream
Heads outta the gutter, gentlemen. This hand cream is for hands. No one, not even the die-hard gym bunny, likes calloused, chapped hands. Once again, we like Inhabit’s Hand Cream. It smooths the roughest of hands. Sandalwood Oil and Sage Oil are nice additions to this recipe. This recipe makes you smell like a manly man that can cook. That’s hot!
5. Foot Scrub
No one likes to feel their man’s cold, calloused feet under the covers. We can’t help you with cold feet, but we can help with calloused feet. Some men’s grooming products can be re-purposed with small changes.
As with the body scrub, use either three parts coarse salt or coarse sugar and one part either organic Almond Oil, Hemp Seed Oil or Olive Oil. We use either Tea Tree Oil because it’s good for fighting fungus or Mint Oil because it’s good for fighting infections and foot odor.
These are our men’s grooming products for your bottom (half). Don’t feel as though you must follow any recipe religiously. Making DIY men’s grooming products is more art than science, more cooking than baking. Mix it up and see what works for you.
