How to Make Massage Oil + Sweet Dreams Blend with Hemp Essential Oil

Massage oils are one of the easiest DIY preparations to craft, which is especially helpful when you consider the host of health benefits that a massage has to offer. While commonly associated with relieving tight or sore muscles, its benefits reach much deeper than that. Massage helps improve blood flow and circulation, bringing fresh oxygenated blood to the body while pushing toxins out of our tissues. Massage is also a great way to ease our over-active minds, offering us the opportunity to breathe deeply, let go, and just be.

All of this is why having a good massage oil in the “medicine cabinet” is not a luxury in my household, it’s a necessity. With a few basic ingredients, you can curate specialty blends that cater to your specific skin type or therapeutic needs. I’m sharing my (very) basic, unscented massage oil recipe that serves as a wonderful base to expand upon. You can then add essential oils for added aromatherapy and skincare benefits.

Best Carrier Oils for Massage

Pro Tip: Add up to one ounce of a heavier oil like pomegranate or cranberry seed oil to give it a thicker texture. This would replace one of the eight ounces in the recipe above.
