Essential Oils to Use During Massage

If you’re someone who is familiar with essential oils, you probably have some
knowledge about their usefulness, and how they can be used medicinally for a variety of
common conditions. It should make sense then, that pairing essential oils with the
ancient practice of massage can have a host of benefits for a person looking to be seen
by a massage therapist. The purpose of this article is name a short list of essential oils
that can be used during massage.

Geranium Oil

This powerful essential oil is associated with healthy firm skin. It has properties that
make it excellent as a muscle toner, and skin tightener. Geranium oil is astringent, so it
has profound anti-aging effects on wrinkles. In addition to those amazing beauty uses, it
also has a great scent that relaxes and eases emotional upheaval. This gives it strong
natural deodorant uses as well, which is a major bonus when you are having it rubbed
on you!

Coriander Oil

The fascinating history of coriander oil and its past uses are quite interesting. In ancient
Egypt, it was considered to be an aphrodisiac, and was mentioned in some of the
famous literature from the days of antiquity. It was well known for its anti-bacterial
attributes, because it helps fight the germs that cause unpleasant odors. Another one of
its most useful qualities is its tendency to be anti- spasmodic, in that it helps to relieve
muscle spasms when applied.

Lavender Oil

Do you have sore and tight muscles? Lavender oil is excellent for relaxing muscle and
helping it to heal. This oil is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. On an emotional
level, the lavender works to promote and better sense of calm, and well-being. On a
physical level, the oil helps to heal blemishes, skin issues and restores skin to a healthy
complexion. It can also use its antioxidants to slow effects of aging, and can help fight
psoriasis.

Hinoki Oil

Hinoki oil has a rich history in Japan, finding its home in bathhouses, and religious
institutions. It has long been associated with the health of the respiratory system by
acting as a decongestant, and helping other breathing problems by relieving stress that
causes chest tightening. While this oil is powerful and continues to have various
benefits, it isn’t recommended for women that are pregnant or breastfeeding.
