Determine what type of massage oil you are creating. Essential oils are a very big part of making the proper massage oil. So let's go over a few of the most popular essential oils to use in the making of your massage oil. If you want to soothe muscles, it's best to use lavender, rosewood, sandalwood, or jasmine oil. If you are wanting to create a more sensual massage oil, try using one of the follow scents such as geranium, patchouli, or rose oils.
Buy your needed ingredients. When your shopping for your massage oil ingredients, be sure to read the labels very careful. Essential oils are powerful scents, and contain elements of the actual herb. Be sure that you or your partner is not allergic to any of the scents that you decide to use. It's also important to buy carrier oil, it's a richer more liquid oil used in most brand name massage oils. You may also need to buy a clean distilled container to store your massage oil in for a later time.
- Start the mixture for your massage oil. First you will need to drop in 8 to 10 drops of your choice of essential oils. You may decide to combine two or more scents, that's fine. Just be sure to add 1 to 2 drops of each scent. After that, you will need to add 6 teaspoons of carrier oil into your container with your essential oils. Lid the container and shake rapidly for 3 minutes. Shaking your massage oil helps mix the ingredients together much better than stirring. It's best to let the massage oil sit or stand to get the full effect of the scent for your massage.
