1. Grape seed Oil: Grape seed oil is a wonderful oil for massage because it does not have a greasy feeling to it as many oils used for massage do. It also has a subtle earthy and nut based scent that is calming and not overpowering. Men prefer this oil for the masculine scent.
2. Almond Oil: Almond oil contains a relatively large amount of Vitamin E that can help to keep skin moisturized. It is also used for combining with aromatherapy treatments. Its scent alone is sweet and can be mixed with any other aromas to create an essential oil blend. Women love this oil for the sweet and soothing scent.
3. Avocado Oil: Avocado oil is exceptional for individuals with skin issues. It can be used to help with overly dry skin, skin with acne and skin with problems such as sun damage or even eczema. It is used frequently for sports and deep tissue massage. Many masseuses mix the oil with other base oils such as almond or grape seed to create a soothing scent and a finer texture.
If you are a masseuse or if you regularly get massages, you know that the quality of the oil used can greatly affect the quality of your massage. Try different oils and aromas to find the best combination for you or your clientele.
