Why Use Jasmine Body Massage Oil?

Long days at work, commute, or busy days with your tots can be taxing. The stress and exhaustion may leave you tense, moody and tired out. A relaxing massage involving warm aromatic oils can greatly help in these situations. As your hands glide through your tired, sore body, the pressure you exert on tight muscles can help ease away tension and soothe sore muscles. 

Beautifully scented, not only will Jasmine Body Massage Oil excite your senses, but it’ll also nourish, moisturise and soften the skin. So if you are looking for a way to relax and unwind, a head-to-toe massage with this homemade body oil is just what you need!

How To Apply Body Massage Oil

Massages work best when they are slow and calm. Keep slow, steady strokes and alternate between the left side of your body and the right. Resist the urge to speed through a massage. Keeping your hands flat, gently massage the oil into your skin and muscles as they glide through the body, applying a slight pressure onto the skin. It will help ease muscles and encourage blood flow to the rest of the body. 

What Are the Main Ingredients in Jasmine Body Massage Oil?

Jasmine Body Massage oil combines carrier oils, essential oils, and vitamin E. Carrier oils I picked for this recipe are nourishing and help moisturise and soften the skin. 

– Almond oil (sweet) is rich in vitamins, minerals and omega-6 fatty acids that help soften, soothe and nourish the skin—an excellent slip agent and emollient. Avoid if you are allergic to nuts. 

– Grapeseed oil, rich in vitamin E, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties, helps improve skin moisture, softness, and elasticity. Its light texture and non-greasy feel make it a perfect addition to more nutritious skin treatments.

– Peach kernel oil is a perfect lubricant for a light body massage. Rich in minerals and vitamins, it suits dry and sensitive skin quite well.  

– Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps keep skin healthy, youthful, soft and supple. It also slows down the oxidation process in oils, extending their shelf life. 

– A blend of jasmine absolute, lime essential oil and sandalwood essential oil creates a sweet floral aroma with a bit of zing. Jasmine absolute is an excellent choice for toning the skin. It improves skin’s texture and elasticity and revitalises the soul. Lime essential oil is an uplifting oil known to help relieve anxiety. Sandalwood essential oil is soothing and encourages a state of relaxation.

  • Weigh all ingredients in a glass beaker and stir until well combined. 
  • Transfer into a bottle, label and date. 

Skin Patch Test

  • Carry out a skin patch test before incorporating jasmine body oil into your skincare regimen. Although ingredients used may be well-tolerated by most people, some may be sensitive or even allergic to them. Apply a small amount of the product onto a clear patch of skin and leave it for 24-48 hours. If your skin turns red, itchy, or you experience any irritations, discontinue using the product.
  • Please consult your healthcare professional or a qualified aromatherapist before incorporating essential oils into your skincare regimen if you are pregnant.

Shelf Life and Storage

Body oils, just like most skincare products, don’t last forever. It is an anhydrous product that should last at least six months if stored well. Store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. If you notice any change in smell, colour or texture, dispose of the lotion and whip up a new batch.

Please remember that swapping the ingredients in the formula will alter the final product. Consider how the ingredient you wish to switch will affect the final product’s scent, consistency, or absorbency when making changes. 

Almond oil: If you suffer from nut allergies, you can swap almond oil for rice bran oil, jojoba oil or sunflower oil. 

Grapeseed and peach kernel oils are excellent light emollients. You can substitute them with safflower, sunflower or canola oil. 

Essential oils: Jasmine absolute is known as a king of essential oils. Its price tag matches its status. It takes many workers to collect delicate tiny flowers to prepare the oil. If you aren’t ready to blow your budget on an essential oil, tuberose oil or ho wood essential oil are suitable substitutes. Before switching oils, be mindful that some can cause sensitisation. You can find out more about the safe use of fragrance ingredients by visiting https://ifrafragrance.org.
