Body Massage Oils FAQs

What does a body oil do?

Body oil primarily moisturises and hydrates the skin. It penetrates deep into the skin to nourish and improve elasticity, which can help reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Body oils also strengthen the skin's natural barrier, preventing moisture loss and maintaining soft, supple skin.

Is body oil better than lotion?

Whether body oil is better than lotion depends on skin type and preference. Body oils offer deep hydration and are ideal for dry or mature skin. They provide lasting moisture and nourishment. Lotions, being lighter and water-based, are better for oily or acne-prone skin. They absorb quickly and are less greasy, making them suitable for daily use. Both have unique benefits, and the choice largely hinges on individual skin needs.

Can massage oils help with specific skin conditions?

Yes, regular massage with body oils can help reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks over time. They work by promoting elasticity and fading these marks gradually.

How do massage oils benefit mental health?

Massages using body oils can be very effective for mental and spiritual issues, including reducing anxiety. The right massage techniques combined with the soothing effects of oils can significantly alleviate anxiety.

How often should massage oils be used?

The frequency of using massage oils depends on individual preferences and needs. For dry or sensitive skin, using oils twice a week is recommended. For therapeutic massages targeting specific ailments, follow the advice of a massage therapist​.
