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!

–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.
Step 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.
I used a glass marker to label my massage oil, and I kinda love how it looks in this copper dispenser! 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.
