A great thing about this homemade body oil is that it is also a homemade edible massage oil so if the massage turns into something more, you do not have to worry about washing this off first. That said, you may still want to be cautious about getting it any internal location. While there is no additional sugar in this recipe, apples still contain sugar and that can be a bad thing depending on where it gets to.
Now that you have your home made massage oil, you are ready to actually have a massage or perform the massage. Unless you are a professional masseuse, you are likely going to need some assistance. I would recommend purchasing a book or watching some video’s on YouTube to get an idea of how to do this. Most people just wing it which is not always a bad thing and can accomplish getting the knots out for a while.
