Make Your Own Relaxing Massage Oil!

Massage Oil DIY I’m just going to come right out and say it, this massage oil smells like every good thing on earth and is changing my life! I’m definitely being a little dramatic, but I can’t get over how yummy and relaxing this oil smells. After I made it, I would walk by it in our bathroom and just put a little on my hands and arms to smell throughout the day. It’s that good!

So not only is this massage oil great for a back and neck rub, but it’s also VERY moisturizing and non-greasy. If your skin is feeling dry, I definitely recommend using it as an after-shower body moisturizer. You will smell incredible and feel so so soft!

Massage Oil DIY Supplies:
fractionated coconut oil
sweet almond oil
jojoba oil
ylang ylang essential oil
vanilla essential oil
lavender essential oil
peppermint essential oil
tangerine essential oil
glass container for storage

Step One: For this DIY I used a 12oz glass container, so cut the recipe as needed for your container size. Using a funnel start by adding in 1 cup of fractionated coconut oil, 1/2 cup sweet almond oil and 1/4 cup of jojoba oil to your glass container.

Massage Oil DIY Massage Oil DIYStep Two: Add in your essential oils! I put in 10 drops of ylang ylang, 10 drops of lavender, 5 drops of peppermint, 5 drops of vanilla and 5 drops of tangerine. Secure the top of your container and gently swirl to mix everything together.

Massage Oil DIY I used a glass marker to label my massage oil, and I kinda love how it looks in this glass container! This DIY takes seriously no time at all and just might be your new favorite thing ever. Anyone else love a good relaxing massage?? Get ready to smell like a mythical creature. 😉 Lots of love, Sav.

  • I work as a mover and need my massage from time to time. I will try this oil the next time THANK YOU!

  • I wonder if my essential oils are different from yours because the amount of drops you added didn’t make my oil smell very much! I had to add wayyy more for that amount of carrier oil.

  • What a great gift idea for Mother’s Day. That packaging is gorgeous!

  • My colleagues at tried making this and they really liked it. Thankyou!

  • I love the soap dispenser! What a pretty design. And I didn’t realize that glass markers were a thing! How awesome. 🙂

  • I have a sweet almond oil reed diffuser (it’s just oil + essence) – i wonder if it can be used as a body oil instead… (the diffusing doesn’t seem to work :P)

  • Ahh… this sounds lovely!!! My poor skin is so beat up from our long, frigid winter, I have to try this NOW!

    Do you know of any reason to not use an unrefined fractionated coconut oil? I love that natural coconut fragrance, and I think it would be divine with this blend of essences.

    Thanks for the great recipe!

  • Now all I need is someone to to rub the kinks out of the back of my neck, or I just need to get a bit more flexible
