Massage is perhaps the most popular way to use essential oils. It combines the healing art of aromatherapy with the healing art of touch. Self-massage is just as effective as being massaged by another person, and lack of a partner is no excuse for not trying these relaxing recipes. Always use essential oils diluted in a carrier oil. Never place them directly onto the skin. As a general rule, do not exceed ten drops of total essential oils per mixture, and try to keep it around five for maximum effectiveness.
