For a romantic setting....

use scented candles.

Recommended candles to use:


Camomile is very relaxing and soothing, and has the ability to calm the mind and comfort the senses.


Lavender is one of the most popular scents in aromatherapy and is widely know for relaxation and calming.


For a more stimulating and invigorating scent, use peppermint.

Before you begin your massage....

warm your hands and the massage oil.

There is nothing romantic about cold hands and cold massage oil.

Before you begin your massage, warm up your massage oil by placing the bottle of massage oil in a glass of hot water for 3-5 minutes. Shake the bottle before using.

Warm your hands by washing them in warm water or by rubbing them together for a few minutes. The rubbing will cause friction, which causes heat.

Massage Instructions

Warm the room. If you have a fireplace, light it.

Turn on soft, relaxing music.

Turn the lights down low.

Light a few scented candles around the room. Lavender is known for its calming, relaxing scent.

Put a bathrobe in the dryer so it will be nice and warm when the massage is completed.

Warm the massage lotion by placing the lotion bottle in a cup of hot (not boiling) water.

Instruct the person receiving the massage to remove their clothing and lay face down.

Place a sheet over the person's body, leaving the head exposed.

Warm your hands by rubbing them together for a few minutes or wash them will warm water before you begin the massage.

Start your massage by gently rubbing the scalp, then the temples and ears.

Pull back the sheet to expose the shoulders. Rub the shoulders, paying special attention to the knotted spots.

Pull back the sheet to expose the entire back. Massage the back. Take your time, and rub slowly and gently. Ask the person if the pressure is ok. If it is too hard, lighten up. If too soft, massage harder.

Take the sheet and cover the person back up, leaving the head exposed.

Uncover one leg and massage it with long gentle strokes. When you're finished, cover the leg back up then repeat the steps on the other leg.

Instruct the person to turn over. Keep the person covered with the sheet and place a pillow under their head for comfort.

Start at the top of the head. Massage the scalp and work your way down to the face.

Gently rub your fingers over the forehead and eyebrows, then the nose, cheekbones and chin.

Massage the left arm.

Massage the left hand, then cover the arm and hand back up with the sheet.

Repeat on the right arm and hand.

Massage the front of the legs one at a time, beginning with the inner thigh and working you way down to the ankles.

Complete your massage with a soothing foot massage.

Retrieve the warm bathrobe from the dryer.

Remove the sheet and replace with the warm robe.

To make this extra romantic serve chocolate covered strawberries and champagne after the massage (see recipe below).

**There are thousands of nerve endings in the feet and hands so you may want to spend a little extra time massaging these areas.

After the Massage

Warm a bath robe or big towel in the dryer so the massage recipient has something warm to wrap up in after the massage.

Have a nice hot bath waiting. Pour some aromatherapy scents and/or flower pedals in the the tub.

Serve chocolate covered strawberries and champagne after the massage. (Chocolate covered strawberries recipe below)
