In other words, I need a massage, desperately and I thought today's DIY post should encompass this need.
Massage oils can be very pricey, especially if you are picky about scent and oil types. I find that making it yourself is not only a great way to save money BUT you're able to let your imagination run wild.

Homemade Massage Oil - Base
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 almond oil
Essential oils - you pick (my favorite is lavender oil)
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and microwave for about 30 seconds. Remove from microwave and ensure the oil isn't too hot. Use oil while it's still warm.
Why this works:? Almond oil is a fabulous, more natural, moisturizer and is the base of a lot of more natural skin care lines. Adding in your own essential oils is a great way to be creative but also allows you to change the scent of the oil as often as you'd like.
Allan doesn't know it yet but I am SO whipping up a batch of this for tonight. YAY for massages.
Try this out, ladies, and happy massaging!
