DIY Valentine Gifts - Massage Oil

Massage therapy has a wide range of benefits for both the mind and body. Physically, it can help to reduce pain, improve circulation, increase flexibility, and range of motion, and improve recovery time after physical activity.

Massage can also help to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, and promote relaxation and a sense of well-being. Additionally, massage can improve sleep quality and boost the immune system. Overall, massage therapy is a safe and effective way to improve physical and emotional health.

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.

Hot Massage Stones Kit

Looking for a quality massage  stones kit? Look no further than Granpay! This kit comes with a combination storage and heater briefcase as well as 20 basalt stones in a variety of sizes. Different sizes rocks can meet your different needs, and the whole kit can be used for full body massage. Plus, the case heats up to around 140 degrees Fahrenheit–warmer than is typically recommended so test on yourself before placing them on someone else. When on, the heating time is about 20-25 minutes. To make sure you get the most out of your stones, there is an illustrated massage guide.

Note: Ideally you should patch test the oil on a small patch of skin before using on a larger area to ensure that your partner or giftee is not allergic to any of the ingredients.

To bottle and wrap your DIY massage oil for presentation, you will need a few supplies:

Bottles or jars with airtight lids to store the massage oil

Labels or tags to label the bottles/jars

Wrap or packaging materials to present the bottles/jars

First, pour the prepared massage oil into the bottles or jars and seal the lids tightly. Then, add labels or tags to the bottles/jars to indicate the type of oil, any ingredients used, and any other relevant information. Finally, wrap the bottles/jars in packaging materials such as cellophane, ribbon, or tissue paper to make them look more presentable.


Creating DIY Valentine gifts with essential oils is a great way to show your loved one how much you care. Massage oils are an excellent choice, as they are easy to make and of course provide the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with your partner. Whether you choose to use specific aromatherapy blends or simply create something from your favorite essential oils, you can be sure that your partner will appreciate the thought and effort you’ve put into their special day.

    These are some great ideas! I might have to do something for my husband using his favourite oils and scents. He loves floweral and sweet scents, and while it’s not an essential oil, loves my Alien perfume.
