Our customers are using essential oils for all sorts of purposes in their homes. They're using them for medical and health aids, for cleaning, for aromatherapy, for massage oil, and much more.
Some particular customers are looking for massage oils that can help with the daily wear and tear that we put on our bodies. As we work, our muscles can often get tight and sore. Massage is a great way to loosen up tissues and feel better – and some of our essential oils products make great ingredients for a effective massage oil for athletes, hard workers or anyone else with tight muscle tissues.
Here are some of the most popular products that we recommend for massage oils.
Peppermint oil is a relatively strong essential oil, with some specific pain-relieving properties. It has menthol, which can have a numbing effect and can be used to soothe muscle problems, sunburns or other types of pain. It smells great, too, and it's a favorite in many households around Christmas time.
Lavender is a known sedative, and it's something that you can also use to combine aromatherapy with massage oil treatments. Many of our customers also like to use it in a bath; it's also gentle enough to apply directly without diluting it, which you can't say for some other types of essential oils. Lavender is a common crop in many European orchards and elsewhere in the global economy, so it’s easy to find a supply to make these quality essential oils. That’s another reason why it’s such a popular item in our essential oils shop.
Juniper is another essential oil that's great for pain relief. It can have a detoxifying effect on the body, and contains antioxidants and anti-inflammation agents. Scientists talk about juniper oil as being antiseptic and even anti-rheumatic, which makes it good for some types of specific muscle conditions. Again, it’s also a great choice for aromatherapy – if you’ve ever grabbed a leaf off of a juniper bush and released some of those oils, you know how good this plant smells. Put it in a diffuser to give your room or space a nice, natural ambience.
Think Rosemary is only useful in the kitchen? Think again.
The antioxidant-rich rosemary oil also has some of the anti-inflammatory chemistry that makes it a good candidate for an ingredient in massage oil. Some of our customers mix rosemary with peppermint or tea tree oil, or other essential oils for an effective massage remedy.
There are all sorts of other essential oils that people use for muscle aches and other pain relief. Turmeric, frankincense and thyme oils are some other popular products.
