Scent reaches our limbic system directly, which has been called the seat of our emotions.
So we can respond to aroma in instinctive and immediate ways.
This comes in so useful when you’re giving an Aromatherapy Massage!
The right aromas can help:
. . . release long-held tensions
. . . inspire deep emotional contentment by calming the nervous system
. . . ease pain in muscles and joints
. . . reduce swelling
. . . and more
Choosing essential oils to support your clients doesn’t always feel straightforward, though.
Which are the safest essential oils for Aromatherapy Massage?
How should you use them? Should you just diffuse them, or make an oil or butter?
Which oils blend best with one another to create the effects you’re after?
You have a lot of options and I understand it can be confusing.
I used to be a Massage Therapist and teacher myself.
It IS possible to feel confident when you use essential oils for Aromatherapy Massage—to KNOW you’re making the right choices for your client, that you’re using the essential oils safely, and that you’ve made the most effective blend for your client’s needs.
I created a FREE webinar especially for Massage Therapists!

Here’s an example of an Aromatherapy massage oil and WHY it works so well . . .
This Aromatherapy Massage oil is made with just three ingredients . . .
Vanilla, Lavender, and Orange Massage Oil
- 1 oz (30 ml) vanilla-infused jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)
- 7 drops Lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
- 5 drops Sweet Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis)
Make this blend in a 1 oz (30 ml) glass bottle.
Combine the vanilla-infused jojoba and essential oils, shake gently, and you’re done!
The research on Lavender and Orange essential oils supports their actions.
We know that Lavender is primarily made up of the natural components linalool and linalyl acetate, and that about 95% of Sweet Orange essential oil is the component d-limonene.
These components have been shown to reduce inflammation and relieve pain—excellent choices for a sore muscle massage, to ease tension, or simply to support overall relaxation.
I’ll tell you more about this on the webinar!
I focus on teaching Aromatherapy these days, but I still have a love for Massage Therapy.
I want to help you feel confident in the essential oils you use for each client.
No more guesswork—you’ll know exactly which oils to work with and how to use them SAFELY. (That part is important!)
