Making Your Own Massage Oil

Massage and Aromatherapy = True Love!

It’s so satisfying to make your own massage oil for the whole body or just the feet! Let’s get right to it. We’ll approach this project in three different ways:

I want to make my own massage oil and…
1. It needs to be simple, easy and fast.
2. I want to be creative.
3. I want a certificate of excellence after I make my oil!

Buy a 4 oz bottle of jojoba
Buy 1/2 oz of Lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
Add 40 drops of Lavender to the bottle of jojoba
You are done!

create2. I want to be creative:
2 oz of vanilla infused jojoba
2 oz argan oil
40 drops essential oil


Recipes Options

No More Pain Blend 
10 drops Lavender
10 drops Mandarin
10 drops Peppermint
10 drops Black Spruce

Extraordinary Calm
15 drops Lavender
5 drops Ylang Ylang
20 drops Frankincense

certificate3. I want a certificate of excellence after I make my oil!
1 oz of vanilla infused jojoba
1 oz argan oil
2 oz avocado oil
40 drops essential oil


Create your own blend, drop by drop. Add one drop at a time and assess the aroma. Continue this process until you reach about 40 drops. Some essential oils have stronger aromas, so you need less in a blend (Ylang Ylang), and with others you can add quite a few drops (citrus oils). * Some oil suggestions below

* Comforting, rich, nourishing oils:
Balsam Copaiba
Palo Santo

* Relieve Pain and Inflammation: 
Black Pepper
Roman Chamomile
Spike lavender

* Emotionally Uplifting & Bright
Bergamot Mint
Lime (distilled)
