Jaynan’s Massage Oil 1

Jaynan called in the other day asking for help to formulate massage oil for her dry skin. She lives here in Utah where it is very dry. She said “I love Sesame Oil and what it does for my skin, but I wish it were more like Olive Oil in consistency. I also need something that will help my dry skin. Something with more oomph.” As we talked I began to have ideas for a massage oil that I hoped was just what Jaynan was looking for. Let’s head to the kitchen to make this absolutely divine massage oil. 

I was so glad Jaynan wanted Sesame Oil in her formulation. It is rich in nutrients for the skin and a dreamy oil. The smooth creaminess of Sesame Oil makes the skin very soft. Think of healthy skin with the softness and smoothness of freshly washed linen sheets. Ooh. No toiletry maker should be without Sesame Oil in her oil collection.

While talking with Jaynan I discovered her love for Shea Butter. (A woman after my own heart.) While Jaynan wanted a liquid massage oil, I knew that Shea Oil would be perfect for her. It would give similar results as Shea Butter without making the massage oil solid or semi-solid. I just love Shea Oil, don’t you?

I also used Cranberry Seed Oil in the formulation for this massage oil. Cranberry Seed Oil is high in essential fatty acids. Cranberry Oil’s naturally occurring tocopherols and highly unsaturated profile provide nourishment to the skin and has superior moisturizing qualities. This should help Jaynan fight dry skin without even breaking a sweat.

In almost every dry skin fighting formulation I make there is Tamanu Oil, this massage oil in no exception. I love Tamanu Oil and can’t say enough good things about it. Tamanu helps the skin retain its moisture as well as become more plump and elastic. This helps prevent the worst symptom of dry skin: cracking or even bleeding skin that becomes very painful and irritated. Share some love with your skin and use Tamanu Oil. I believe you will be glad you did. Hip, hip hooray for Tamanu Oil and BOO to dry skin!

Jaynan was also looking for an essential oil blend that had a forest like odor that she could put either her Patchouly or Lilac perfume over. She described to me a perfume called Rain. She said it was earthy with a slight note of pine. “It also has a a strange note that is bright and spunky.” I set out to come up with an essential oil blend for Jaynan. I think I have it. I used Balsam Peru, Cedarwood Virginia, Ylang Ylang and Siberian Fir. I was quite pleased with the results. Try this wonderful scent blend today!
