#BeautyByYou: Massage Therapy



Massage oils can be costly, not to mention they are not always natural. A good therapeutic massage oil doesn’t have to cost the earth and in fact you can simply make it at home and you’ll ensure that you’re using the best all natural ingredients.

Coconut oil is ideal for massage. It protects skin, lathers and melts easily upon skin contact. Also, it easily washes out of towels. Other oils stain and leave odors on towels after a while.

To make our homemade massage oil, you’ll need:

• 1/2 cup of coconut oil
• 1/4 cup of cocoa butter
• few drops of essential oil




Optional Ratio: 5 drops of essential oil per ounce of coconut oil.


° Soften coconut oil and cocoa butter in a double boiler over medium heat.
° Blend.
° Add few drops of essential oil.
° Cool down.
° Pour in a clean container.
