How to make massage oil

Let's get in touch! Studies show that massage therapy not only reduces inflammation and pain, but it can also cure headaches, depression, insomnia, and boosts immunity. 

Follow this simple DIY to make your own infused massage oils:

  • 120ml of grape seed oil
  • 3 dried sage leaves

Funnel all ingredients into a glass jar. Seal with a cheese cloth and place in warm sun for two days. Replace cloth with a proper lid and enjoy for one month.

For a scented treat come summer you could also try

  • 120ml of sweet almond oil
  • 4 heads of fresh rosa rugosa petals

Again, add all ingredients into a glass jar. Seal with a cheese cloth and place on a sunny windowsill for two days. Replace cloth with a proper lid and enjoy for one month.
