Massage oils are the most important massage product for a professional therapist to use in their everyday practice. They often choose their oil carefully and with great care.
When they find the oil they like, they then search for the best prices and often look for distributors to get the best deal, even if they have to purchase in bulk.
Bulk prices of oils not only provide deep discounts, but often saves money in shipping, and they can be delivered to your door.
Finding the distributor who keeps the prices low, can sometimes be the challenge.Buying your oil by the gallon is best, as well as economical.
Buying retail online is fine, but if you want the best prices, you have to search for independent distributors' websites who offer the best prices on the oil you love.
And then, who do you trust?
We have spent many hours searching for companies who offer great products at great prices for massage therapists.
Many of these distributors have small, online businesses. They usually can't afford to advertise their products and prices, and depend on others (like therapists and educators) to spread the word about their company and prices.

The great thing about buying on Amazon is the FREE Super Saver Shipping, which usually saves lots of money. So, you can get the product at a discounted rate, and a huge savings on shipping.
Plus, you can see how others, who have actually bought and tried the products, rate the products. You don't get that with retail massage supply companies!
The oils used in massage therapy can be expensive. But, if you can find a company who distributes for the actual manufacturer, like on Amazon, you can save money.
