Massaging is an important feature in healthy living, the oil used should therefore be relaxing and beneficial to your skin at the same time. There is a variety of oils available today, ranging from seed oils, olive oils and animal extracted oils. They are found in cream, solid or liquid forms. Choosing the best oil has direct bearing to the plan of use.

When using massaging oils for therapeutic purposes, one should consider medicinal properties of the oils. Oils containing menthol for example, will help in flexing the affected area as well as relieving pain of the injured. If the application needs high friction, using solid oils will be efficient since it takes a longer to be absorbed into the skin.

Take heed of hypersensitivity, some people are allergic to certain contents. In this case, oils free from the specific personal irritating extracts should be avoided. Tastes and preferences should also be taken into account. If one enjoys scented products or is not comfortable with strong scents.

Nothing is more soothing than a nice massage, this is greatly determined by the choice of oils you incorporate in the session. If the oil best fits the occasion then the massage tends to be more intent.
