With the kids out of school and the summer madness in full swing, sometimes it can be hard not to loose touch with your own intuition, your deep connection with your partner, and your self-care routine as a whole. That’s why today I’ve decided to show you how to make something quick and easy that touches on all of those key, self-care elements in the form of a DIY massage oil.

I use massage oils as a daily moisturizer, in place of a hand cream, and as a traditional massage oil. However you decide to use it is up to you.

DIY Massage Oil recipes

This morning, I was lucky enough to meet up with Jon for coffee before he started his workday (mine usually begins between 5 and 6 am) and we got to talking about what would make the perfect afternoon/night for the two of us. We’ve both been working out harder than ever, trying to keep up on our kids crazy schedules and juggle our new ventures so by the end of the day, we’re often totally and completely exhausted.

I left the coffee shop this morning with an awesome idea and  knew that I’d be surprising him with an at-home spa night tonight.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by summer craziness already, then you should too!

These super simple DIY massage oil recipes are so easy to whip up! Just pour everything into a container (or re-use an empty one you have on hand) and shake to stir. I like using essential oils because of the added benefits and incredible scents. Below are a few go-to combinations to de-stress, sleep better, and focus more.
