The art of massage is more than a technique or therapeutic treatment; it is the experience of truly relaxing and letting go. Since medieval times the massage practice has been utilized for relieving pain, stress, and emotional blockages by caressing and applying specific amounts of pressure to certain areas of the body. The art of massage has evolved, as everything does, into a way of life for millions of people around the globe. The ability of massage to alleviate stress and make us feel good is worth its weight in gold.
Whether you are a spa owner or just a person who loves to enjoy the hands-on experience of massaging your own muscles or your partner’s, there is quite a collection of massage oils to choose from these days. Oils are an integral part of a great massage, in that they allow the hands to glide over the skin in a comfortable and pleasant way.
With so many oils out there from which to choose, how does one decide on the perfect massage oil for their needs?
Before choosing a massage oil for your home use or spa, there are a few basic bits of information one should know. For holistic and therapeutic purposes, we recommend essential oils derived from trees, flowers and fruit plants. Massage oils that contain essential oils are some of the most potent oils on the market today. They smell great and last for a very long time.
Begin by deciding what you will use your massage oil for, and move forward from there.
For a revitalizing and energizing effect, peppermint oil is a wonderful ingredient for a massage oil. Peppermint can energize and awaken the senses, getting you ready for a long day of activity. Peppermint oil is also soothing for those with cold and sinus conditions because it can ease the act of breathing through a stuffed up nose.
Lavender oils, on the other hand, are well-known for their relaxing effects on the body and mind. Lavender is often used in pillows, sachets, and diffusers, to bring a calming effect to a space or assist in facilitating a good night’s sleep.
