homemade massage oil

Massages have many health benefits such as:

  • stress and anxiety relief;
  • reducing muscle tension and joint pain;
  •  improving circulation and;
  •  increasing body awareness.

Certain studies are also stating that massages can improve your immune system and lymphatic drainage.

The human touch can be a powerful instrument for health and wellness and can contribute to strong relationships.

Whether you are a certified massage therapist or someone who wishes to pamper your lover, here are some  massage oil recipes that you can prepare and personalize.

These recipes are for adults and I suggest that you consult a health practitioner if you wish to use essential oils on children or babies.

Also remember to be attentive to allergies and sensitivities to scent that some people may have.

These recipes will make a little of 100 ml of homemade massage oil.
