How to make your own body massage oils

Body massage oils
It’s been a long day and you’ve been working hard from morning till dawn. You rest your back in your comfortable chair and you’ve been thinking of pampering yourself. But knowing that you have to spend a lot of money just to pamper yourself wouldn’t be a reward after all. But you deserve to be rewarded and be pampered. So please sit back and grab yourself a cup of coffee and take this time to read this easy to do tutorials on how to make your own body massage oils in the comfort of your own home without spending much.



Let us first know the basics about body oils. There are two common oils that are use to produce body oils, they are the Essential oils and Fragrance oils.

Essential oils are, mostly, a natural product derived from flowers or plants. Fragrance oils are a blend, often synthetic, of a number of ingredients usually diluted with an oil carrier. To some people, synthetic fragrance oils are less desirable than plant-derived essential oils as components of perfume or massage oils.

You would also notice that if you've been shopping for both you will have noticed that there is a steep price difference between the two. Fragrance oils tend to be more affordable than Essential oils.

If you want to know more about this, feel free to visit my post about Essential oils and Fragrance oils.

Now that we have some basic knowledge about Essential oils and Fragrance oils, lets us get started to make our very own body massage oils.
The recipes here are designed for Essential oils

Revitalizing Body Oil
Recipe by Michelle Roques O'Neill, UK aromatherapist.

This is great for: detoxifying, drainage and improving circulation

  • 1 3/4 fl. oz. peach kernel oil
  • 10 drops geranium essential oil
  • 8 drops grapefruit essential oil
  • 4 drops lavender essential oil
  • 4 drops sandalwood essential oil
  • 2 drops lemongrass essential oil

Relaxing Massage Oil

  • 4 tablespoons of carrier oil (a carrier oil can be either Safflower, grapeseed, or almond; they have no odor and won't interfere with the other ingredients)
  • 10 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 10 drops of begamont essential oil
  • 10 drops of rosemary essential oil

Nourishing Body Oil
Recipe by Loredana and Mariano Spiezia, owners of Spiezia Organics.

  • 1 3/4 fl. oz. jojoba oil
  • 1 fl. oz. almond oil
  • 1/2 fl. oz. apricot kernel oil
  • 1/5 fl. oz. wheat germ oil
  • 18 drops ylang-ylang essential oil
  • 10 drops sweet orange oil
  • 6 drops lavender essential oil

Sensual Body Oil
Recipe by Michelle Roques O'Neill, UK aromatherapist.

This is great for: getting you in the mood

  • 1 3/4 fl. oz. peach kernel oil
  • 10 drops grapefruit essential oil
  • 8 drops ylang-ylang essential oil
  • 4 drops West Indian bay essential oil
  • 3 drops patchouli essential oil
  • 2 drops myrrh essential oil
To make these blends, simply put all the ingredients listed into a small bottle (preferably dark glass jars or bottles) and shake well. Store out of sunlight in a room temperature (excessive heat will warp the effectiveness--and the scent.)

Now that you have your own body massage oil, you can now ask your special love one to give you a full body massage.

Soon I’m going to give some tutorials about body massage and sensual massage.
