| | Naturally Native Massage Oil Ingredients:
- 2/3 cup each of corn, sunflower and peanut oil
- 1/8 cup each of cleavers, willow bark or leaves, juniper berries and rose hips (all dry)
- essential oils of sassafras, spruce, cedar and wintergreen
- large funnel
- 2 20-ounce jars with air-tight lids
- measuring cup
- brown paper bag
Step 1 - Make the Oil
Measure herbs and base oils into one air-tight jar. Close the lid and place in a brown paper bag in a warm place. Shake two or three times a day, whenever you remember. If you shake it more often, you will get a better product in a shorter time, about three weeks. If you shake it less often, then you will want to give it a longer extraction time, as long as eight weeks.
Strain out the herbs and pour the mixture into the second jar. Add one drop of wintergreen oil and two drops each of sassafras, spruce and cedar (both sassafras and spruce stimulate the lymphatic system and are good for tissue congestion). Shake well to blend. Label the jar Naturally Native Massage Oil.
Your massage oil is now ready to use as is, or as one of the ingredients in the Naturally Native Massage Lotion.
