From the 5000-year-old Ayurvedic healing tradition of India to being referenced in the writings of Homer, Socrates and Plato, oil massages are not a new idea. Adding warm massage oil to the experience of a massage can be blissfully relaxing and wonderfully comforting, while it rejuvenates your mind and body. Not only does it enhance the relaxing nature of the massage, but it also aids in healing processes. The smooth gliding motion that a massage oil helps to achieve nourishes the skin and helps to dissolve accumulated toxins and stress, which promotes general good health.
To get the maximum benefits of an oil massage, it is best to use chemical-free, cold pressed, organic vegetable oils, or massage oils with herbs added to them, or a massage oil to which an essential oil used in aromatherapy has been added. Listed here are some of the best and pure massage oils along with their benefits.
