New Custom Massage Oils

Would you like to try a custom oil with your massage?

I have been working for the last few weeks to come up with some special oils for my massage created to match the lifestyle of the person I am giving a massage to.

To be honest, I had forgotten how much work it takes to develop a scent for oil, and the process has gone slowly, but I have one oil completed (and the formula for it safely stored for future use).

There are many considerations when a custom scent is created, not the least of which is what is the beneficial effects of the oils to the massage itself.  In trying to focus a custom oil there are constraints that I try to consider.  For example, why would I use one essential oil over another? How does the oil enhance the massage in a positive way? What is the medicinal properties of the essential oil and how does that blend with the other oils in use.

Mixing essential oils is a balance between what it does, and how it’s combination of oils mix to make a pleasing scent.

The first  of the oils that I have perfected was designed for active people, people that appreciate a good workout but need some tender care to their muscles so that they can rebound faster.

My newest creation (not named yet) is a combination of Pine Needle, Lavender and Eucalyptus oils, mixed in a carrier oil that is 100% Jojoba.

The result is a wonderful scent that has a relaxing notes given by the Lavender, but also an earthy and natural note provided by the other oils.

If you think you would like to try my new blend, just ask and see if it is something you like!
