How to make Massage oil

Essential oils need to be diluted with a carrier oil before they are massaged into the skin.
The basic recipe should be:

massage stones

massage stones

For body massage:
15 drops essential oil
60 ml carrier oil

Face / foot massage:
5 drops essential oil
30 ml carrier oil

Stick to these recipes as it is best to mix only as much as you need each time so that the vital ingredients stay fresh and uncontaminated. If you make more than you need, store any leftovers out of direct sunlight in a tightly stoppered dark glass bottle.

As to as how much oil is enough for each massage, you need to apply enough to make your hands slip but not slide. Start with a small amount of warm oil and spread it on skin with smooth, flowing, rhythmic strokes, adding more to your hands as they start to drag over skin.

The best carrier oils to give enough slip for massage are sweet almond, sunflower or safflower. These are ideal for either body or face, but if you want to treat a particular type of complexion or skin problem as you massage, use one of the carrier oils specifically for facial skin care.

When preparing your oils, first measure out the carrier than add the essential oil, drop by drop, and shake or stir to blend. In general, you should use no more than three essential oils at a time for massage as any more will only mean the individual aromas fight each other rather than blending together.
