How to Make Massage Oil Try one of the following combinations of essential oils in a warm (not hot) bath or as a massage oil, How to Make Massage/Bath Oil.
Use therapeutic grade essential oils for the best results.
For relaxing muscles/easing stress:
3 drops lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
2 drops petitgrain (Citrus aurantium var. amara)
1-2 drops frankincense (Boswellia cateri) – optional For a sensual experience:
3 drops ylang ylang 3 drops sandalwood
-Draw the bath first, add the essential oils, swirl them around with your foot, get in and relax. Allow
yourself 10 to 20 minutes.
Do not get the bath water in your eyes, as the oils will sting. Use this formula up to once a day for 3 days a week over a two- to three-week period.
-To create a massage blend, add the above oils to a tablespoon of carrier oil (like sweet almond oil or a “massage base” oil, which is usually a blend of sweet almond, grapeseed and jojoba oils).
If you’d like to store the oil for later use or package it as a gift simply use the same ratio of carrier oil to essential oil, and pour carefully into a clean, dry glass jar.
