With the kids nearly out of school and the spring 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.

  1. It is interesting that getting a massage can help pump oxygen into your tissues. That is a good thing to know if you need to help your body feel better. I want to feel more energetic lately and I wonder if getting a massage can help me with that.

  2. Massage helps to restore muscles to their correct position. When I first started getting a regular massage about a year ago, my masseuse told me that I was starting to get a dowager’s hump. As she worked with me monthly, the hump became less and less. Now it is totally gone.

  3. It’s amazing how these oils can relax us or heal us depending on how we mix them. I am also a fan of essential oils and I love incorporating aromatheraphy to yoga. Some call this “yogaroma” and yogaroma oils are usually applied as a fragrance or scent to the pulse points. This can enhance the meditation experience and works wonder as stress-reliever. Thanks for sharing your DIY!

  4. That stress less massage oil sounds just heavenly! I’ll definitely give it a try and pass it on to my clients.
    I don’t have any ylang-ylang oil for the deep sleep recipe – do you think it would work as well without it?
