Best Essential Oils for Body Massage

2023-06-30

Massage was once considered a luxury, but its health and wellness benefits are not superficial. From gentle stroking to deep pressure, there are a range of different types of massage that can treat major health concerns or can be incorporated into a daily wellness regimen. The benefits of a good massage include promoting relaxation, increased awareness of breathing, lowering blood pressure, relieving tension, and reducing body pain. No matter what type of massage you're planning, aromatherapy can enhance the experience and nourish your skin in the process.

 

Essential oil

Lavender  Oil: Known as one of the most popular and versatile essential oils in aromatherapy, Lavender is valued for its adaptogenic and soothing properties as well as its delicate, fresh and sweet aroma. Adaptogenic and anti-inflammatory properties help the body cope with stress, while its calming, pleasant scent helps promote relaxation, perfect for winding down before bed.

 

Eucalyptus  Oil: Restorative and invigorating, Eucalyptus essential oil promotes muscle relaxation while awakening the senses. In aromatherapy, this cooling essential oil is thought to support respiratory health, provide pain relief, and soothe stressed skin.

 

Peppermint Oil: The rich, minty and sweet aroma of Peppermint is refreshing, cooling and stimulating to the body and senses. Peppermint is rich in healing properties and is known for its ability to treat headaches, soothe sore muscles, and relieve cramping associated with PMS. The versatility of this peppermint oil allows it to be used in body massages, not just the back. Due to its refreshing properties, peppermint is not recommended for sleep-promoting massages.

 

Grapefruit Oil: For a mid-day pick-me-up, massage this energizing citrus oil to refresh the mind and promote focus. Due to its balancing properties and mood-boosting potential, grapefruit is thought to help reduce stress and lower blood pressure. The aromatherapy benefits of this rich citrus oil can also help promote healthy blood flow and relieve stiff muscles, making it a great choice as a massage oil.

 

Clary Sage Oil: Another uplifting essential oil, clary sage has a well-balanced and earthy scent that contributes to its calming, stress-relieving properties. Clary sage may also support the immune system and relieve cramps, including those associated with PMS. Dilute clary sage essential oil with jojoba oil and massage into affected areas to help relieve pain.

 

Geranium Oil: Geranium Oil's fresh floral scent helps it relax and rejuvenate. Geranium essential oil has traditionally been used to improve circulation, support and stimulate the nervous system, and act as an astringent when applied topically. When used in massage, geranium is thought to promote muscle contraction, resulting in a firmer appearance and toned body composition.

 

 

Base oil

Fractionated Coconut Oil: Anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and deeply moisturizing, Fractionated Coconut Oil has powerful skin-healing properties. Fractionated Coconut is rich in Vitamin E, which helps protect skin from UV rays. This emollient base oil is also thought to stimulate collagen production, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

 

Jojoba Oil: Jojoba Oil's lightweight consistency mimics that of skin's natural sebum consistency to detoxify and rejuvenate congested skin. Jojoba oil is a non-comedogenic oil, which means it won't clog pores, so it's good for face and scalp massages. Rich in vitamins E and B, minerals and antioxidants, jojoba is the perfect massage base oil for relaxing and nourishing skin.

 

Avocado Oil: Essential and trace minerals give this base oil its moisturizing and skin-renewing properties. When used topically, avocado oil can tighten pores and draw out impurities. Using this body oil in a massage allows the anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and sun protection properties to penetrate deeper into the skin. Massaging inflamed areas of the body with avocado oil may help relieve pain or tension.

 

Grapeseed Oil: Rich in vitamins A, E, B, and D, amino acids, and essential fatty acids, grapeseed oil has the potential to boost cell regeneration, help treat sun damage, dry skin, acne, and minimize signs of aging. Grapeseed Oil is moisturizing without being greasy, balancing the natural oil production on contact with the skin. It's also gentle enough for sensitive skin types.

 

Sweet Almond Oil: Sweet Almond Oil is a fast-absorbing oil, making it a highly effective emollient. Its vitamins A and E content make Sweet Almond a versatile massage oil suitable for many different skin types, including dry and acne-prone skin. It also has powerful antifungal properties, so sweet almond oil can be used in massages on feet afflicted with athlete's foot and other fungi.
