Why all the fuss over ingredients?
Well, when I develop a new recipe for my customers, I try to be very mindful of the ingredients that go into it. It needs to work better than the customer expects, but as importantly, it needs to be better than the so-called mass-produced products we are faced with in shopping centers and online. I want to produce products that make you feel good AND are good for you!
A dear friend who has a lot of issues with tight muscles has found that getting a massage biweekly or monthly has eliminated all the back problems and headaches she was getting. So naturally I asked her what massage oil her masseuse was using. She told me it was something she had found at a bath & body store at the mall. Looking at the label, it was filled with all sorts of chemical preservatives and emollients that weren't natural. Yikes! I was concerned that all these chemicals were being rubbed in to her skin each week. Ewww....
After significant research, I designed a massage oil that uses only natural oils that are far safer than what she was using. She tells me her masseuse asked where she had gotten it, saying it was the best oil she had ever used. No kidding! She said it had just the right amount of "slip" to it to give a wonderful massage, and the scent was relaxing and more pleasant than her usual oil. Now she is hooked and uses it on her other clients!
So why all the fuss? Remember that your skin absorbs 60%? Yep, add that fact to a warm rub-down or a tub of warm water, if using as a bath oil, and your skin is pulling in all sorts of stuff. Yikes! With all the chemicals our bodies are hit by each day, why intentionally rub more in? Be choosy and read the labels of your products... your skin will love you!
So, what's in it... and why?
Our massage oil has a blend of 5 different oils that provide a nice "slip" to make the massage most enjoyable...
So that's it! Five different oils and a touch of essential oils to add scent... compare that to the "other" massage oils which have all sorts of words I can't even pronounce on their ingredients label!

We use Macadamia Nut oil as a main ingredient because it is just plain wonderful! But if you have an allergy to nut oils, we can absolutely tweak our recipe to include olive or avocado oils instead of Macadamia... custom products are our specialty!
Ahhh, I can hear my tub calling me now... Ta-ta!

I appreciate how the author has detailed the five different oils they use in their massage oil and why they chose them.
