Soothing massage


Soothing massage oils are perfect to use before or after a workout, or when you are feeling the after-effects of a long day of hard physical work.

  • Deep Blue® Soothing Blend. A blend that is both cooling and comforting, it also comes as Deep Blue® Rub for a lotion-like application.

  • Coriander. Apply to your skin directly after a workout.

  • Cypress. Soothing when applied on its own, use with a citrus oil for an invigorating massage.

  • Eucalyptus. Helps to create feelings of open airways.

  • Lemongrass. The perfect massage oil to use after an especially intense workout.

  • Marjoram. Used to target specific tired or stressed muscles.

  • Vetiver. A soothing and aromatic massage oil for feet after a long day.

  • Wintergreen. Both soothing and warming, be sure to dilute.

 

Warming massage

 

Keep in mind that these massage oils are hot or warm oils that will always need dilution, either with Fractionated Coconut Oil or the doTERRA Hand & Body Lotion. To test for sensitivity, add small amount of diluted oil on a small patch of skin and monitor for up to 5 minutes for a reaction.


 

 

Stimulating/Energizing massage


Occasionally we all need a pick-me-up.

 

  • Ginger. Make sure to dilute with Fractionated Coconut Oil for easy application and to avoid sensitivity.
