How to customize a special blend of massage oil

What muscle to target

Using essential oils to customize your own special blend is not only the most healthy way to treat a sore muscle but also the key to working a particular issue. Working from head to toe focusing on the tight areas for a longer period of time. Once the area is loose move along to the next area again working downward. What I love about massage is it benefits the giver as well as the receiver! As you work the muscle area you absorb the essential oils in your own skin as well as infused. Getting those sore muscles worked and boosting the senses is what makes massage with essential oils so unique.

Blending For A Warm Massage

To create a warming and invigorating massage experience combine essential oils such as Black Pepper, Copaiba Balsam Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Rosemary, Ginger, Turmeric, and Nutmeg. The oils create an uplifting atmosphere and warm the muscles as well as cleans the skin. The carrier oils to blend with Fractionated Coconut oil or Jojoba. Fill half of a dark squeeze bottle with your choice of carrier oil along with your top 3-4 essential oils. The dropper amber bottles makes it easy to apply without waste.

Soothing Massage

To create a soothing massage experience use essential oils like Lavender, Sweet Marjoram, Geranium, Helichrysum, Frankincense, Chamomile, Ylang-Ylang, and Blend of Sandalwood (amazing oil). These oils along with any of the carrier oils will create a relaxing, calming atmosphere as well as sooth those stiff muscles. NOTE: Some essential oils are expensive and excluding them from your blend will be just fine.
