Sugar & Spice Sensual Massage Oil Recipe


8 drops Sandalwood essential oil

3 drops Orange essential oil

2 drops Patchouli essential oil

1 drop Ylang Ylang essential oil

1 drop Ginger essential oil

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


Combine the 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 in the excitement of getting a massage.)

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

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

This recipe is wonderful for hot oil massage. Simply heat the bottle in a jar of hot water and use...

Cautions: Ginger may irritate sensitive skin, which is why it's at such a low concentration. If you're exceptionally sensitive, leave it out.

Orange may cause photosensitivity and sunburn. Do not use before sun exposure.
