I put this invigorating massage oil recipe together as an anytime use…well, unless you’re wanting to fall asleep right away. It has essential oils in it that will wake you up and get you going. It’s great for when you jump out of the shower and want to kick start your day, when you’re in the bath and want to focus, clarify, and be rejuvenated, and when you would like a massage that wakes up your senses.
A lot of massage oils out there are a deceptive mixture of good ingredients in with the bad. You can beautiful ingredients like aloe vera, sweet almond oil, and essential oils mixed in with horrible ingredients like TBHQ, Fragrances, and polyparabens.
You can make your own so that you know you only have great ingredients only, and be frugal at the same time.
The fun part about making your own is that you can put in exactly what suits you. I absolutely love certain scents. But everyone is different. If you have the opportunity to make your own, then you can add the essential oils that you and your loved one prefer.
For the Base:
Use your favorite essential carrier oils like: jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, olive oil, grapeseed oil, or any combination of those oils.
For an invigorating and sensual scent, I recommend choosing from the following oils:
- citrus oils like bergamot, orange, grapefruit, lemon, and lime
- tropical oils such as neroli and ylang ylang;
- and other stimulating scents like vanilla, peppermint, geranium, clary sage, jasmine, sandalwood, or frankincense.
The recipe below makes a light scented oil that is not overpowering, but enough to set a mood or wake up your senses.
