Massage Aromatherapy
By Maisha Liwaru




Essential oils are perfect for scenting massage oils. A massage, if given properly can be relaxing, uplifting, worry reducing and centering. Tension in the neck and shoulder often goes unnoticed until a massage loosens those muscles. By adding essential oils to the massage lotion or oil, the benefits of massage are super sized.

The essential oils tailor the massage to the current needs of the person who is receiving the massage and the second hand aroma also benefits the masseuse. I am sure that most of you don’t need any convincing about the wonders of massage. Rather than go on and on about what can be gained by a good massage, I am going to provide you with a few great massage oil recipes. Now remember, the carrier oil of choice is Emu Oil which can be blended with a Cold Pressed Sweet Almond Oil for economy sake.
