I use Essential Oils on every massage I give. I truly think it brings the experience to a new level. I base my decision on what to use according to what the client needs. Peppermint for energizing and cooling, Lavender for calming and skin conditions, Wintergreen for muscle and joint pain are just a few examples. I put a few drops in my hand and mix with lotion as I go with the massage. Clients love to pick out the oil depending on what they are needing or just in the mood for. And as a bonus I get the benefit also of the oils just by the absorbtion through my hands.
