Aroma massage with essential oils

essential oils for aroma massage doterra ireland

A massage with essential oils is probably the most pleasant and sensual application.

The massage with essential oils allows the active ingredients to penetrate via the skin into the body, lymphatic system and blood circulation and thus into the organs within a short time .

The different essential oils have activating, relaxing, stress reducing, analgesic and skin nourishing effects through the energy channels, nerves and meridians.

As essential oils are highly concentrated substances, they should not be applied directly to the skin. Instead, they should be diluted with a carrier oil before application.

For a fragrant body and massage oil, you can use 100 millilitres of carrier oil and 15 to 20 drops of the essential oil, or 50 ml of carrier oil and 7-10 drops of oil.

This concentration can be used as a general guideline for essential oils in cosmetic products.

For a partial massage, e.g. for localised muscle pain, the dosage can also be increased to 40 drops of essential oil per 100 millilitres of carrier oil. This corresponds to a two-percent mixture.

However, these high dosages are not suitable for highly skin-irritating essences.

Only use vegetable oils as carrier oil, such as doTERRA Fractionated Coconut oil or other plant-based oils such as jojoba or almond oil, for your massage with essential oils.
