This soothing homemade massage oil recipe is designed to support breathing and relax the respiratory system.
Its gentle but powerful formula deeply relaxes your muscles, helping you get a peaceful, quiet night's sleep. So good you might want to use it even if you don't snore!
Making massage oils for snoring works by relaxing the throat muscles (not to mention the rest of you!) and reducing or thinning mucus.
Natural snoring remedies such as aromatherapy have been proven to work in clinical trials, reducing the snoring of over 80% of participants in one study.
Combine all ingredients in a dark glass or PET plastic bottle. (I recommend using one with an oil or lotion dispenser cap so it's harder to spill.)
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.
To make a larger amount of this homemade massage oil recipe, depending on the size of the bottle, simply double or triple the recipe. (Just remember - it generally goes rancid after about three months.)
To use, gently rub a little of the massage oil onto the upper chest, neck and the bones behind the ears.
My favorite supplier for aromatherapy supplies like carrier oils is Mountain Rose Herbs. They have top quality products, good prices and their staff are friendly and helpful. Here's some quick links to the ingredients you'll need for this homemade massage oil recipe...
Another supplier I really like is doTerra. They only supply oils though, not the base ingredients like emulsifying wax or carrier oils.
I switched to doTerra's oils a while ago when I tested them against the other brands in my stockpile. I found I got better results, and I never got headaches or skin irritation, which sometimes happened with other brands.
I was pretty resistant to trying them because their prices are higher than a lot of other brands, but when I saw and felt the difference on my skin, I was won over.
I find that because they're so effective, I can get away with using fewer drops per recipe, which helps even out the cost. So if you want high quality, ultra-effective oils, these guys are for you.
You can buy doTerra's oils at retail prices by clicking the Shop button at the top. Or click Join & Save to become a wholesale customer and get a store-wide 25% discount. Message me if you want more details on the wholesale deal - it's well worth it.
Amazon has epic variety - if you're a browsing kinda person, go nuts!
Just remember, you get what you pay for. Please, please don't buy the
cheapest oils - I promise you they'll be diluted with synthetic ick you
don't want on your skin.
Why stress if you're already stressed? If it just seems like too much time, effort or energy to make any aromatherapy massage oils right now, then give yourself a break and do it the easy way - order some!
