One of the best almond oil benefits is it's light texture, which makes it so good for the skin, and with it being rich in Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, and E, it can be used in most massage, essential oil, and spa recipes.

This massage oil is popular with massage therapists because it is inexpensive, absorbs well into the skin, naturally contains high concentrations of vitamins, and is so beneficial for dry, itchy skin.

About Me

A few things about me and the creation of Massage Education Guide....

After 20 years of practicing massage, I decided to create an online resource for people who want to learn about massage, and how to relax our minds to release anxiety and stress.

I have had many clients come for massage, only to discover they just needed to talk, or they needed to cry, and let go of pain or worry, or stress, in a place they felt safe

Life has changed a lot over the past 6 months, and going to a spa may not be an option financially, or even safe, with social distancing guidelines.

Finding a way to relax our minds, and release stress and tension at home, is critical for a healthy immune system, as we find our way through this pandemic.

I've created a spa recipe book, filled with easy at-home spa ideas, to help you relax and release stress from your body at home.

Now, because of this virus, I teach folks about the benefits of massage products, essential oils, body scrubs, bath bombs, and other make-at-home goodies that help us de-stress in the comfort and safety of home ... to relax the mind and body, and make life so much better!

What's my passion? Massage therapy always and forever is my love, but helping people learn how to relax at home, is a very close second!

So, let's learn how to relax, to release stress, and rock this pandemic together!

Solo Build It!
