Washable Massage Oil 2

Finished Massage Oil

Finished Massage Oil

I love treating myself to a massage but I hate that when I finally get to the shower to clean up, I feel like a slippery, oily, falling hazard. I would love to be able to step into the shower and wash most of the oil off with ease while leaving just a tiny amount to keep my skin soft. Well, today I decided to solve this by making my own! Come join me.

I am really pleased with this massage oil. It feels just like your typical massage oil. There is no stickiness or tackiness you might expect from have an emulsifier in the mixture. It rubs into the skin just beautifully. When I rinsed my skin, the water did not bead up like I had lots of oil on my skin. Instead it just flowed across my arm. After I dried my skin, I was pleased to discover that there was only a tiny amount of oil left. It wasn’t enough for me to worry about staining my clothes and it kept my skin soft throughout the day. Wow!

I love making recipes like this because they are so easy to do. Are you ready? It is even easier than making Tollhouse® Ready Bake cookies!

How simple was that? This is a great massage oil that you can use at home or at a spa. You and your clients will love how easily this product rinses the excess off while still leaving enough to keep the skin baby soft. Remember that massage oils should be scented lightly as we continually add product to the skin. A little goes a long way!

    Hmmm… there’s no water in this formula so I’m wondering why we need to use a preservative? I’m also wondering why you chose to use the spray clear emulsifier? Is that what helps the oil to rinse off clean?

      The preservative is a safeguard should water be introduced to the product. The Spray Clear Emulsifier is what makes the oil rinse off easily but it also will make water mix in if introduced to the bottle. I decided to use the Spray Clear rather than Polysorbate because Polysorbate has a tacky feel that I was trying to avoid. If you like massage oils that are tackier, feel free to use Polysorbate and/or increase your amount of Castor Oil.

      I hope this helps.
