How to Make Your Own Simple Massage Oil

Technorati Profile
You will need a couple of things from the health food store so here's your shopping list.
  • 4 Oz bottle of carrier oil (almond, jojoba, olive, sunflower, or avocado)
  • Essential oil of your choice (Pick a fragrance or oil to do what you want it to do)
  • Vitamin E capsules

The Mixture

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly.
  2. Carefully open your bottle of carrier oil. Most have an inner liner, but not all.
  3. Empty two (2) 400 mg capsules of vitamin E into the carrier oil. This has preservative qualities.
  4. Add ten drops of essential oil into the bottle. If using Eucalytus oil NEVER add more than two drops.
  5. Recap bottle and swirl bottle between two hands until mixed.

Way to go! You've just created your first simple bottle of massage oil. This can be used for more than just massages. Add it to a tub full of water for a skin nourishing bath. This is a thin consistency oil and absorbs readily into the skin.
