You don’t need to go to a massage therapist to benefit from using your oils, however. There are so many ways and reasons to use oils as part of your own massage. You can apply oils and massage in to aching feet after a long day standing, or on stiff muscles and joints after a work out (or getting out of bed, for us older folk). Use oils along with a neck or shoulder massage to ease tension.
When my daughter was younger and dealing with the emotional upheaval of puberty and being a young teenager, we struggled a bit in our relationship. We were often at odds with each other. I started giving her a foot massage in the evenings with wild orange, and it improved both her emotional state and our relationship considerably.
My personal favorites for massage include Balance blend to help my mind slow down, Aromatouch blend to help release tension, and Deep Blue blend to ease pain. Here are some other oils you might want to consider incorporating in to your massage.
