Valentines Massage Blend

This is a simple massage blend using good quality essential oils. This looks beautiful in a pretty bottle and tied with a red ribbon and can make a thoughtful and romantic home made Valentines Gift;

  • 20ml of Sweet Almond Oil
  • 5 drops of Ylang Ylang
  • 5 drops of Jasmine

Sweet Almond Oil; (not to be used if you have a nut allergy!) This wonderful carrier oil contains vitamin A, B1, B2, B6 and E and is suited to nourishing the skin and can be used on sensitive skins.

Ylang Ylang; This is a calming and balancing oil with a sweet exotic smell. Known for its aphrodisiac qualities Ylan Ylang helps to combat anxiety, tension and stress as well as lifting your mood.

Jasmine; A sensual little flower whose blooms are picked at night, Jasmine is wonderfully romantic. Again Jasmine will soothe the nerves and promote feelings of confidence and well being.

The above mix can also be used in the bath and applied directly to skin as a luxurious moisturiser. This would be nice used all over the body after a shower and will leave you feeling and smelling silky and soft all evening, especially if you have something nice planned.
