Homemade Aromatherapy Oil Recipes For Sensual Massage

Updated on July 25, 2010

The beauty of using essential oils for massages is that they give extra soothing relief to sore muscles. They also have other therapeutic benefits that can help lessen anxiety. Here are some aromatherapy oil recipes that we can easily follow so we can be on our way to wellness.

The recipe for a nice oil to be used for a sensual massage consists of the mixture of natural oil, flowers, herbs, and spices. Since all these ingredients are all-natural, they are very safe to use for massages and are less likely to cause any allergies. Some of the most common blends of the homemade massage oil recipes include rose and lavender, lavender and peppermint, and rose and jasmine among others. For the oils to be used, you may choose grape seed or sweet almond oil but if these are unavailable to you, olive oil and sesame oil will also work

Sensual Massage Aromatherapy Oil Recipe

Add two cups of extra virgin olive oil to a sterilized jar filled with 1/2 to 1 cup of your choice of aromatic flowers, spices, or herbs.

Good choices to use for sensual massage are

  • Rose
  • Jasmine
  • Lavender
  • Chamomile
  • Vanilla

Make aromatherapy oil at home

The steps to making your own homemade massage oil recipe are quite simple. They say that essential oils need not be heated during the summer so this is the probably best time to make a concoction. After choosing the oil and flowers to be used, put the ingredients into a jar and stir to mix them together. If you are planning to leave them under the sunlight, make sure to seal the jar tightly and leave for twelve hours. If you are using a heated pan, leaving it for a good ten minutes will do.

After leaving the aromatherapy oil, strain the plant extracts so you only get the pure oil for your sensual massage. Transfer the contents into a bottle or glass container. If you have just finished a whole batch which you can’t finish at one single time, you can store this into a dark cool place for about six months to a year.

You can also use a aromatherapy oil diffuser to make the room smell great too.

Homemade Aromatherapy Oils Can Make You Night Together Even More Special

Other tips for making aromatherapy oil recipes are to determine the purpose for the sensual massage. Do your research on which plant extracts to use for certain ailments, or the ingredients that give relief to the body and relax sore muscles. The ailments include acne, sore muscles, dry skin, and general skin infections. Make sure to research about a plant extract before combining it with oil to prevent allergic body reactions.

Just like lotion or a moisturizer, aromatherapy oils are best applied on the skin when it is damp. This is because the skin absorbs more moisture when it is wet. Applying this before a massage can be very refreshing too.

The most common herbs used for sensual massages are rose and jasmine. These are combined with carrier oils so that they appear milder to the skin. The carrier oils can be grape seed or sweet almond oil. Most of these ingredients can be grown in gardens or found in groceries so they are very accessible too. The amount of essential oils should be greater than the carrier oils. If you are mixing the ingredients to aromatherapy oil, it would be best to wear surgical gloves to ensure the cleanliness of the mixture. Remember that this will be directly applied to the skin so it’s better to be safe than sorry.
