One of the nicest things
you can give your spouse/family/friends/etc. is a great massage. And it’s even better if you can make your own signature massage oil to use with it!
I was reminded of this…because I just ran out of my latest batch this morning. So I had to whip up another batch, which prompted me to share my expertise.
I always like using a mixture of aquaflor and olive oil. I generally use the ratio:
1 to 3
Aquaflor to olive oil
and then heat that until it all liquifies. Into that, I’ll put essential oils of:
- cinnamon (must be very careful with that, it can burn)
When it cools down to room temperature, it’s a solid once again…and works dandy for massages.
I also have coconut oil but haven’t yet tried that in my mixtures.
In any case, the final product is great for when you do skin-on-skin contact. However, it’s not edible, so get that idea out of your head now. Stick with veggie oils if that’s of interest to you.
ps – some already-made massage oils are:
