Want a spa-like aromatherapy massage? You can, at home, for a fraction of the cost. Try our Lavender Massage Oil that is ultra soothing to mood, body and mind.

Help calm feelings of stress and worry by applying this aromatherapy massage oil with lavender and ylang ylang oil.

What is Lavender Oil?

Lavender oil is a type of essential oil that is extracted from the lavender plant. The oil has a sweet, floral scent and is widely used in aromatherapy. It is believed to have calming and relaxing properties, and is often used to treat anxiety, stress, and insomnia.

Lavender essential oil can also be used topically to treat skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and burns. In addition, the oil has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties that make it useful for treating cuts and scrapes.

Can I Use Lavender Oil for Massage?

Lavender oil  has a calming and relaxing effect on the body, which can help to reduce stress and tension. It is also thought to have mildly sedative properties, which can promote a sense of peace and well-being.

When used for massage, lavender oil is usually diluted with a carrier oil such as jojoba or almond oil. This helps to prevent skin irritation and ensures that the lavender oil is evenly distributed.

Relaxing Essential Oils for Massage

In today's world, it seems like we are always on the go. We are working long hours, taking care of our families and trying to fit in time for ourselves. It's no wonder that so many of us feel stressed out and overwhelmed.

One way to combat these feelings is by incorporating massage into our lives. Not only does massage feel amazing, but it can also be a great way to relax and de-stress. And if you want to make your massages even more relaxing, consider using essential oils.

Essential oils have a variety of benefits, including reducing stress levels and promoting relaxation. In this massage oil we are using lavender and ylang ylang oil.

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender essential oil has great skin care and aromatherapy benefits. It is known for calming and soothing the body and mind. Perfect to use before bedtime to help you unwind from the day.

Also great for relaxing the mind so when you lay down you fall asleep fast. Lavender oil is safe for most people to use, but it is important to diluted before applying it to the skin.

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

Ylang ylang is also a powerful relaxation oil that adds an additional sweet and floral perfume to this recipe. Benefits of ylang ylang include boosting mood, increasing sensuality, and improving skins appearance.

Grapeseed Oil

The base of this recipe is a carrier oil called grapeseed oil. It's a perfect body oil to deeply moisturize and nourish the skin, plus it absorbs quickly.

Grapeseed oil helps to dilute the essential oils in this recipe so they can be massaged onto the skin. A huge benefit of grapeseed carrier oil is that you won't feel super oily, just soft and smooth after application.

Lavender Massage Oil Uses and Benefits

While massage oil is obviously used for massages, you can use it for SO MUCH MORE. Here are some ways I have used this recipe.

  • Sleep Aid - use before bedtime to enhance sleep
  • After Shave - after shaving, massage into legs
  • Body Moisturizer - apply to body after done showering
  • Lavender Bath Oil - just add a few squirts into bath water and enjoy a relaxing bath
  • Bath Salt - you can mix a few squirts of massage oil with some epsom salt for a soothing sore muscle soak
  • Foot Care - apply to sore feet (perfect after a long day), then put your feet up and enjoy some R & R

So now you see, this can be made into so many more natural body care products as well. Pretty versatile for a simple massage oil right?

Lavender Massage Oil Uses by Loving Essential Oils

Lavender Massage Oil Recipe Blend

Lavender oil is one of the most popular essential oils used in massage. It has a calming and relaxing effect on the body, making it ideal for promoting peace and wellbeing. If you'd like to make your own Lavender Massage Oil Recipe Blend, you'll need the following ingredients:

  • 15 drops Lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
  • 5 drops Ylang Ylang essential oil (Cananga odorata)
  • 1/4 cup Grapeseed Oil
  • 2 oz glass bottle with lotion pump

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients into glass bottle.
  2. Place on lotion pump and shake well.

To use: Squirt 2-3 pumps into palm and warm oil between hands then massage onto body and enjoy the heavenly scent of this oil blend. This blend is at 1.67% dilution.

You can also add a few drops to your bathtub for a relaxing Lavender Bath Oil Recipe Blend.

Recipe variations: While I love using grapeseed oil in this recipe, you can use other carrier oils like jojoba oil, sweet almond oil or olive oil. Just FYI, while olive oil is very nourishing, it leaves the skin very greasy feeling so keep that in mind.

According to Tisserand and Young, Ylang Ylang essential oil may pose a moderate risk of skin sensitization. They recommend dermal maximum of 0.8% and caution to avoid use for those with hypersensitive/diseased/damaged skin and in children younger than 2.

Lavender essential oil has no safety precautions listed. Avoid using any essential oil that has oxidized due to a greater risk of skin sensitization. Read more about essential oil safety.

Lavender Massage Oil FAQ's

Here are some common questions about lavender massage oils:

What Do You Need to Make DIY Massage Oils?

There are a few things you need to make your own DIY massage oils. The first is a carrier oil, which helps to dilute the essential oils and makes them easier to apply.

Some popular carrier oils include jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, and coconut oil. Next, you'll need to choose your essential oils. These can be tailored to your personal preferences, but some good options for relaxation include lavender, chamomile, and neroli.

Finally, you'll need a dark glass bottle to store your oil in. This is important, as essential oils can degrade when exposed to light. With these simple ingredients, you can easily make your own massage oil at home.

How to Make Lavender Body Oil?

Making your own lavender body oil is a simple and satisfying process that can be done the same way this massage oil was made. The first step is to gather your supplies.

You will need some lavender essential oil, carrier oil, and an airtight container. Once you have everything assembled, you can begin the process of making your own lavender body oil.

Simply add the desired amount of lavender essential oil to the carrier oil and mix well. Pour the mixture into the airtight container and store in a cool, dark place.

When you are ready to use your lavender body oil, simply massage a small amount into your skin. The Lavender scent will help you relax and the oil will moisturize your skin, leaving it feeling soft and silky.

What are the Benefits of Lavender Oil for Skin?

Lavender essential oil is one of the most popular and versatile skin care ingredients available. Its main benefit is its ability to soothe and calm the skin, making it ideal for treating conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and sunburn.

In addition, lavender oil can help to diminish the appearance of scars and blemishes, and it can even be used as a natural insect repellent.

When applied topically, lavender oil penetrates deep into the skin to provide long-lasting hydration and nourishment. What's more, its pleasant fragrance can help to boost your mood and promote relaxation.

Given all of these benefits, it's no wonder that lavender oil is such a popular choice for natural skin care.

Where to Buy Essential Oils?

Essential oils are great because not only do they make you feel good physically but mentally as well. I love having them around since they have so many benefits like clearing the air of bad odors and improving moods by releasing calming scents in your home or office!

Be sure to only purchase 100% pure essential oils from a trusted source. We are frequently asked what essential oil brand we like, here are some of our favorites:
