Make this sweet, exotic, earthy homemade massage oil recipe to calm your mind, slow your breathing and soothe your nerves.
This is a perfect aromatherapy stress remedy for the end of a long, hectic day - or anytime you feel frazzled, anxious or overwhelmed. Use it as a sensual warm massage oil with your partner for deep relaxation and mutual comfort.
If you don't have time for a full body massage, give yourself a gentle foot massage... At work, rub it on your temples and take a 5 minute 'time-out'... Or rub it into your stomach and chest just before bed to help you sleep.
5 drops Orange OR Petitgrain essential oil
5 drops Frankincense essential oil
3 drops Marjoram essential oil
1 drop Jasmine OR Ylang Ylang essential oil (jasmine's better for this recipe, but more expensive)
1 drop Vetiver essential oil
Combine all ingredients in a dark glass or PET plastic bottle. (I suggest using one with an oil or lotion dispenser cap so you don't accidentally pour it all over everything.)
Wait at least 24 hours after blending to let the mixture 'cure'. Store the bottle in a cool, dark place. Use within three months.
If you want to make a larger amount of this recipe, simply double or triple the recipe. (Remember to use it within about three months.)
I like Mountain Rose Herbs because they have excellent products at reasonable prices, and they're a one-stop-shop for all my basic ingredients. Here's some quick links to the ingredients you'll need for this homemade massage oil recipe...
After some experimentation and comparison, I switched my oils to doTerra because I found they work better. They cost more than some other brands, but that's because the quality is higher. There's no fillers or substitutes to drop the cost of making them.
You can shop retail by clicking doTerra's Shop button at the top. Or click Join & Save to become a wholesale customer and get 25% discount. Message me if you want more details on how to maximize your savings.
For the best variety of any online store ever, browse Amazon. They have every brand you can imagine, and a wide range of prices.
remember - you get what you pay for, especially with essential oils. If
a bottle of oil only costs a couple of dollars, it's only going to be
worth a couple of dollars. There are no laws enforcing purity so you
have to trust the supplier. Buy the best oils you can afford.
Here's how I think of it... For budget, choose Mountain Rose. For quality, choose doTerra. For variety, choose Amazon.
