Coconut Oil Massage Lotion

Massage lotion should be three things. Oily, moisturizing, and soothing. It must be oily to prevent too much friction between skin when someone gives a massage. It should moisturize skin without clogging pores, and it should soothe tense and aching skin.

A coconut oil massage lotion is the perfect solution! Coconut oil melts as it becomes warmer. The temperature of your skin is the perfect amount of warmth to get your coconut oil into a liquid state which will glide across those sore muscles. This massage lotion contains essential oils which are said to assist with problems like pain, inflammation, and muscle tension.

In order to use this lotion, take a small amount into your hands, and massage you or your partner’s back, neck, shoulders, legs, arms, hands, or other sore areas. There are some fantastic guides online about massage techniques to use on yourself and others. If you’re a professional masseuse, good news! This massage lotion is perfect for you too.

Ingredients

How to Make it

In a bowl, combine all ingredients. Using a hand mixer or a KitchenAid, whip the ingredients together well. Place the completed coconut oil massage lotion in a sealed container, such as a mini mason jar. For an extra cooling sensation during massage, you can store the massage lotion in the fridge until about an hour before use. The cooling sensation can help ease your muscles and create a tingling sensation in combination with the peppermint oil.

Nothing beats the gift of a massage. Your partner will appreciate it, and may even give you one in return! Make sure you wash your hands well after giving a massage using essential oils. You don’t want to accidentally touch your eyes after using natural oils or lotions.

Gentle yet firm circular motions help loosen up the muscles in your shoulders and at the base of your neck. Upwards motions using the sides of your hands can help along the sides of your spine. What are your favorite massage techniques? Share them with us in the comments section!
