Massage Oils

Do It Yourself Massage Oil
For a massage oil, take about 2 or 3 Tablespoons of carrier (Sweet Almond, or whathaveyou) and add to that about 5 drops or so of a good quality EO. Look in an aromatherapy book to decide what you would like to use depending on what effect you want to have (general relaxation, muscle fatigue etc.)

Acne Oil
1/2 tsp (or 30 drops) Helichrysum Absolute. I prefer 1/2 tsp as it is very thick
2 oz Rose Hip Seed Oil
Place oils in an amber or cobalt glass bottle. I slightly warmed bottled mixture in a water bath to blend the oils. Shake well.

To apply: Cleanse skin thoroughly, pat dry and apply just a few drops of this oil and massage in well. I have my daughter using our Comfrey Root & Lavender home made vegetable soap. She is applying the oil mix 2 times per day.

Now it was mentioned to me that the addition of Tea Tree and Lavender would also be beneficial and that the rosehip seed oil might be a bit too heavy for young skin. But we have tried many of these combinations with not the success we have had now. My daughter finds the rosehip seed oil to be soothing and within 15 min it is completely absorbed, and also important to a teenager, the odor is not objectionable. She did find the Tea Tree pleasing.

Rose hip seed oil is wonderful in cases of inflamation and does provide important essential fatty acids. So with this combination what we have seen is healing without the extra irritation, which is what we were looking for.

Bulk Massage Oil
For those of you looking to make a larger batch of massage oil than the recipes here, here is the basic formula I use.
3.5 tsp of eo
16 oz. of massage oil base.

This recipe is for a 3% dilution. When I find a scent blend I like, I make up a big batch of it so I can just pour it out as needed to add to my massage oil base.
Enjoy...
