DIY Valentine Gifts – Massage Oil
A masseuse looks for a massage oil that is safe to use on the skin, has a pleasant scent, is non-staining, and provides the desired level of lubrication. The massage oil should also be compatible with any special techniques the masseuse plans on using, such as Swedish or deep tissue massage. Additionally, the masseuse may look for an oil that contains natural ingredients or essential oils which can provide therapeutic benefits.
