The massage oil blends available from New Directions Europe are created in a base of sweet almond, wheatgerm, and soya bean oil and are suitable for body massage. Massage has great therapeutic value. Massage oil is needed to reduce friction between hands and the skin; you will likely need 30 ml of oil for a full body massage.
The ideal massage oil should be pure and generally filtered as the more refined oil feels better to the touch. Unrefined oils may feel greasy and they should be avoided unless there are other reasons to use them.
The perfect massage oil should not be sticky, instead it should flow easily on the skin and absorb within a reasonable time - but not too quickly. The massage oil needs to stay on the skin during the massage and absorb afterwards instead of drying out too quickly.
Massage oils tend to have a pleasant odour and they help to seal moisture inside the skin – keeping skin hydrated and smooth for longer periods of time. Massages are designed to soothe, relax and invigorate the body, bringing health and wellbeing whilst leaving the skin feeling soft and supple.
The massage oil blends available from New Directions Europe are ideal for home or professional use; they are ready to be used or can be customised to suit requirements.
