I love getting a massage. I also love giving a massage. It is a simple thing you can do for your husband or wife that speaks volumes in terms of appreciation. My husband works long hours and usually 6 days a week just so I can be a stay at home mom. I like to thank him by using our favorite massage oils from Young Living. In today’s post, I’m going to go over how to make your own massage oils. If you have a favorite DIY massage oil recipe please comment below. I would love to hear your recipe. 🙂
In the following posts, this week into next, you will learn about each of the massage oils that Young Living offers. Subscribe to my blog (over to the right) to stay in the loop. (If your in a mobile browser, the subscription box is at the bottom)
How to make your own Massage Oil
Pour 1 ounce of organic carrier oil in a small glass or metal bowl. Do not use plastic!
Some oils that work well for massage are jojoba oil, sunflower oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil, olive oil, or sesame seed oil.
You can read more on the different carrier oils HERE
Add 15-30 drops of your favorite essential oil or blend to the carrier oil and stir together.
Depending on the type of massage you are going to be giving or receiving you’ll want to add the appropriate essential oils to achieve the desired results.
Calming or relaxing massage oils:
Cedarwood, Harmony, Aroma Ease, Roman Chamomile, Lavender, Clary Sage, Jasmine, Myrrh, or Ylang Ylang.
Invigorating or energizing massage oils:
Cypress, Fir, Juniper, Panaway, Valor, Myrtle, Shutran, Abundance, Awaken, or R.C.
Romantic massage oils:
Rose, Jasmine, Clary Sage, Sensation, Lady Sclareol, Patchouli, or Ylang Ylang.
Pour the combined oils into a one-ounce bottle. You can find glass bottles and pumps here.
*** Note: I do not recommend making more than 1 oz at a time. Homemade massage oil does not contain any preservatives and it will become rancid over time.
Enjoy Your new creation!
