Citrus Bliss Homemade Massage Oil


15 drops Bergamot essential oil

15 drops Palmarosa essential oil

2 drops Ylang Ylang essential oil

1/4 cup (60ml) carrier oil of your choice such as apricot kernel oil or jojoba oil


Combine all ingredients in a dark glass or PET plastic bottle. (I recommend using one with an oil or lotion dispenser cap so you don't accidentally pour it all over everything with the joy of getting a massage.)

Wait at least 24 hours after blending to let the massage oil 'cure'. Remember to keep the bottle in a cool, dark place. Use within three months.

If you want to make a larger amount of this homemade massage recipe, depending on the size of the bottle, simply double or triple the recipe. (Remember it tends to go rancid after about three months.)

Caution: Bergamot essential oil can cause photo-sensitivity and sunburn. Do not use before sun exposure.
