What is a massage oil?

Massage oils are used as part of a massage treatment to further relax and relieve tension in the body. Our natural massage oils are often used in Neal’s Yard Remedies massage sessions, with our massage therapists diffusing essential oils in the treatment room during the session or adding drops of essential oil to a massage lotion and applying it directly to the skin.

Choosing massage oils

Massage oils are used in massages to help reduce friction while the massage is carried out. With massage oils, the therapist’s hands will glide over your body. Given that massage oils are often scented with essential oils, they provide another avenue for relaxation, and leave a lasting fragrance, even after the session is over.

It’s important when choosing massage oils to consider if you require an unfragranced base oil or a scented massage oil that has been blended with essential oils. Essential oils are natural fragrant essences extracted from flowers, leaves, bark, roots, fruit peel and berries, while basic massage oils are typically base carrier oils with essential oils added – either in the massage oil blend itself, or by the therapist during your session.
