4 Overwhelming Benefits of Almond Massage Oil



A massage provides a myriad of health benefits, including muscle relaxation and tension relief. When it comes to choosing massage oil, newcomers to the world of massage may feel as if they’re on a journey to find the Holy Grail itself.

 

If you find yourself scratching your head about which massage oil you should use for a massage therapy, consider the benefits of almond oil. Remember, though, that you should choose to use sweet almond oil for any Davao massage, not the oil derived from its toxic counterpart, the bitter almond.

 

Without further ado, here are some of the benefits of an almond oil massage:

 

It’s Easy On The Wallet

 

If you’ve been experiencing sticker shock when you take the first glance of the price that accompanies most specialty massage oils, the relatively low price tag accompanying almond oil should be a welcome relief for you.

 

Almond oil is affordable enough to be on people’s beauty budgets. Use it alone for an inexpensive massage session. As a general rule of thumb, approximately 4 ounces of the oil should provide enough for a full body massage.

 

Better yet, you can create a custom oil blend by fusing small amounts of the more expensive oils like jojoba, rose hip and wheat germ oil with an almond base. This will allow you to experiment with more pricey oils without spending too much.

 

Aromatherapy Bliss

 

With its mild, pleasant scent, almond oil is a prime carrier oil for an aromatic massage, because its thin texture allows your body to take in more essential oils. To further maximize all its benefits as a carrier oil, experts suggest you stick with the organic, cold-pressed almond oil.

 

Essential oils that are commonly paired with almond oil include lavender, chamomile, jasmine and rose.

 

Mild for Mini Massages

 

Almond oil is mild enough for use on children and older babies. Although you can always use it on its own, many parents opt to blend it with other gentle essential oils – such as chamomile – before massaging it into the child’s skin. Use no more than two drops of almond oil per 5 tablespoons of, say, chamomile essential oil.

 

Promotes Skin Healing

 

Almond oil possesses anti-inflammatory properties, according to what the experts have to say about it. As an emollient, it’s also easily absorbed into your skin, refreshing and hydrating tissues without having to clog the pores.

 

These features combine to make almond oil an effective way to relieve dry skin, itching, soreness and inflammation, especially when these problems show up from skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema.

 

These are just some of the benefits you may want to know about almond oil. Although there may be a whole lot more than just these four benefits.

 

Remember, there are also other massage oils out there you can use to experience a much better Davao therapeutic massage treatment. You’re free to ask experts in the field when you don’t know which massage oil should you try first. Nonetheless, almond oil is one that you should definitely try out.
