Carrier Oils for Massage

Carrier Oils for Massage

Unwind with the therapeutic benefits of carrier oils for massage; find the perfect oil for your needs, learn about their properties and how to use them.


Looking to unwind after a long day? A massage is a perfect way to relax, and if you want to create your own massage oil blend using essential oils, using a carrier oil is a must. To safely apply essential oils topically, they must first be mixed with a carrier oil.

If you want to harness the powers of aromatherapy and you want to use your favourite essential oils in a massage, find out what the best carrier oils are for you!

What is the best carrier oil for massages?

The best carrier oils for aromatherapy and massage use are sweet almond oil and grapeseed oil.

Sweet almond oil is an excellent lubricant and offers an extended slip time - which makes it perfect for massage. Grapeseed oil, on the other hand, is a very popular choice for massages because it has a light, non-greasy texture.

However, all of our carrier oils can be used for massage, and each offers particular benefits.

Oils like jojoba oil or fractionated coconut oil are particularly popular as massage oils thanks to their essential fatty acids that make them great for use on skin.

How to mix essential oils with carrier oils for a massage

You must always follow dilution guidelines when mixing essential oils with carrier oils. This is to make sure that the massage oil will be safe for your skin.

We recommend diluting 5 drops of essential oil in 10 ml of your chosen carrier oil for the best results.

If you're diluting essential oils for other purposes too, you can refer to our dilution guide for the best advice on how to do this.
