Organic Massage Oils for Natural Relaxation

Golden massage oil is poured from a bowl to begin a relaxing massage. Several bottles of massage oils are arranged on a windowsill.

Who doesn’t love a good massage? Whether it’s performed by the hands of a skilled professional or the one you love (both, if you’re lucky!), a little added massage oil can help work out the tension. Another bonus is that a natural, nourishing massage oil can also act as a skin-supporting moisturizer for your back—an area which we sometimes neglect due to the flexibility required to reach it on our own! Each of our classic massage oil recipes uses a base of nourishing, organic carrier oils including olive, sweet almond and jojoba, and our hand-made organic calendula herbal oil. Created in small batches, each massage oil is infused in-house with our own botanicals and blended with organic essential oils. A touch of vitamin E oil acts as an antioxidant and helps preserve the qualities of our blends as well as providing extra nourishment for the skin.

The applications for these oils don’t stop at massage! You can also use them as daily moisturizers, or add a couple spoonfuls to a warm bath for an aromatic end to the day.

Autumn Moon Massage Oil

A heady combination of organic chamomile flowers, organic lavender flowers, and organic roses makes up the sweet-smelling floral infusion in this blend.

An elegant blend for awakening sensuality and divine inspiration, this sublime massage oil is infused with our organic calendula flowers, organic lavender flowers, organic roses, organic damiana leaf, and organic rosemary leaf. A blend of clary sage, lavender, neroli, and palmarosa essential oils enhances this blend with a supremely enchanting aroma.
