Relaxing Massage Oils

Massage Oil

Massage oils make fantastic personalized gifts for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, or any other special occasion. Give a single bottle, or create a massage gift-pack with several varieties of oils.


  1. Pour one ounce of pure vegetable oil in a small cup or bowl (one ounce equals 1/8 cup, 2 tablespoons, or approximately 30 milliliters). Some oils that work well for massage are jojoba oil, sunflower oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil, olive oil, or sesame seed oil.
  2. Add 15-30 drops of your favorite essential oil or blend to the vegetable oil and stir together. Some oils that might work well either individually or as part of a blend are listed below.
    • Oils that are good for a calming or relaxing massage oil include: cedarwood, Roman chamomile, lavender, Clary sage, jasmine, myrrh, or ylang ylang.
    • Some oils that would create a more invigorating or energizing massage oil include: cypress, fir, juniper, lemon, nutmeg, orange, grapefruit or peppermint.
    • Some oils that can be used to create a more romantic massage oil include: rose, jasmine, clary sage, rosewood, or ylang ylang.
  3. Pour the combined oils into a one-ounce amber glass bottle, a one-ounce plastic bottle, or into two half-ounce plastic dropper bottles.
  4. Create a label or gift-tag that says what kind of massage oil it is, what the ingredients are, and how to use it (for example, your label or gift-tag might read: "Peaceful Moment Massage Oil: Contains pure grapeseed oil and natural essential oils of lavender and chamomile. Apply to desired area and massage oil into the skin.").

Extra Ideas

  1. Create relaxation gift packs with any combination of massage oils, scented candles, relaxing music CDs, Vita Flex rollers, or (for someone special) gift certificates for a free massage.

If you are looking for some great blend ideas that you can use to create a wonderfully scented massage oil, one of the best sources is the book 500 Formulas for Aromatherapy by Carol & David Schiller. This book contains over 150 different massage oil formulas that can be used for many different purposes.
