Massage oils, creams, and gels are a great way to hydrate your skin and help you feel relaxed when getting a massage. However, not just any massage cream or oil will do. We ranked the three best massage oils, lotions, and creams that professionals choose to use when giving their patients a therapeutic massage.
1. Almond Massage Oil
Almond oil is one of the best to use for a full body massage. It is non greasy and light, which makes the oil glide effortlessly on the skin. It is perfect to use on the body for a massage, especially in the colder months to heal any dry skin your patient may have. Because of almond oil’s hydrating properties, it can give the patients’ skin a beautiful glow and even diminish signs of wrinkles. Let your patients soak up this lightly scented and hydrating oil during their massage and let them reap the benefits. This oil is all natural, with no chemicals or preservatives which will leave your patients at ease. It is available in sizes of 1L or 4L.
2. Bon Vital’ Coconut Massage Lotion
Coconut oil is known to be the best oils to hydrate dry, cracked skin. It is also known to be extremely versatile and can be used on the body, hair, and even help whiten teeth. However, when it comes to massage lotion, this Bon Vital’ Coconut lotion is one of the best. It is extremely long lasting and makes it easy to handle the patient. This lotion is made from fractionated coconut oil which means it is extra nourishing. This oil will never leave your patients skin feeling oily or greasy, it will rather hydrate the skin and leave it soft to the touch. If your clients are sensitive to harsh smells, this coconut lotion is unscented and paraben-free. Available for sale in bottles of ½ gallon, 1 gallon, and 8 oz.
3. Sunflower Massage Oil
Sunflower massage oil is another favourite oil by massage professionals. The reason behind this is because it has no chemicals in it, making it very natural. It is extremely hydrating, as with all other lotions and absorbs very quickly into the skin. This oil acts as an antioxidant to the skin because of the high content of vitamin E. This oil also has anti-inflammatory properties, which is very soothing on the skin, especially when its applied by a massage.
All three of these oils are great to use during a massage since they hydrate and nourish your patients skin. Any oil you choose to use on your patient will be very nourishing, and it all depends on your preference and that of your clients. If you want to go for a massage oil that is very lightly scented, then choosing almond, coconut, or sunflower oil is a great option.
