The Best Massage Oils

The best massage oils are the ones you make yourself. Why? Because you can customize them for your skin type, mood or moment. You also know exactly what's in them (and what ISN'T!)

Generally speaking, you want your aromatherapy massage oil recipes to have a good amount of "glide", meaning they don't absorb too quickly into the skin.

This is where choosing your aromatherapy carrier oils comes into play. Here's a few of the most popular carrier oils for making massage oils.



Olive Oil. This one tops the list in terms of popularity. It's easy to find, inexpensive and good for your skin. It has a fresh scent of its own, which will influence the scent of your massage oil recipes. (Personally not my fave.)

Buy olive oil.


Jojoba Oil. This is one of the best massage oils you can use. Jojoba is the most similar of all carrier oils to our own skin's natural oil, and it lasts extremely well without going rancid. It has no scent of its own, so works in all aromatherapy massage oil recipes.

Buy jojoba oil.


Grapeseed Oil. Also popular, easy to find and inexpensive. Good for oily, acne-prone skin. On the other hand, grapeseed is one of the most quickly absorbed oils, so the amount of glide is reduced. (You can, of course, compensate by using lots.)

Buy grapeseed oil.


Kukui Nut Oil. This oil is gaining recognition as extremely restorative for the skin. It absorbs at a comfortable rate for massage, and it's good for every skin type. You may want to avoid it if you have nut allergies.

Buy kukui nut oil.

I have to share another supplier for essential oils that I personally now use because I've found their quality to be the best. I switched to doTerra after buying a few oils like lavender and tea tree and comparing them in my recipes.

What I found was that they worked faster and more effectively than any other brand I've tried. So I want to offer their oils to you as well.

doTerra's AromaTouch Massage Blend is an amazing blend of Cypress, Peppermint, Marjoram, Basil, Grapefruit, and Lavender. Soooo relaxing and revitalizing at the same time! Plus it works well with different kinds of massage techniques.
