You don’t need to buy expensive massage oils in exclusive boutiques where everything is priced expensively. You can actually make massage oil in your own kitchen!
One of the most ideal oils for massage is coconut oil. It protects the skin and can be lathered on easily. It also melts easily upon skin contant. It can also be easily washed from clothing and towels. To prepare a massage oil with a coconut oil base, you will need the following:
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup cocoa butter
- few drops of essential oil (optional)
Soften the coconut oil and cocoa butter in a double broiler over medium heat. DO not let the mixture boil.
When both substances have been blended, remove from heat. Add a drop of essential oil of your choice and mix.
Let it cool. Place in a jar and store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
