24 Best Essential Oils
for massage, natural healing and pain relief!

The 24 best essential oils used today have a rich history of healing, and were often used in biblical days to promote recovery from many types of illness, and to relieve pain.

Whether used for aches and pains, or in massage for tired muscles, essential oil benefits were recognized early in the world history.

Quality, pure oils provide healing and pain relief.

Today, essential oil benefits are being recognized at some of the most prestigious health organizations in the world, not just in the massage therapy industry.

Essential oils are found in the liquid of various parts of plants (i.e. flowers, bark, seeds, leaves, etc). They are highly aromatic and are far more potent then the dried herb itself.

For this reason, some essential oils should be diluted with a high quality vegetable or carrier oil prior to use.

Some of the best essential oils include healing capabilities which can be antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, antifungal, antimicrobial, anti-parasitic, and anti-infectious.

24 Best Essential Oils

The best essential oils are pure, therapeutic grade oils and oil blends. They are known for their true purity and the therapeutic results they achieve.

Best Essential Oil Uses

Most essential oils are so concentrated and powerful that you can get huge benefits from just one or two drops. They support, heal, and build all of the eleven major body systems as well as the emotional, mental, and spiritual components of a person.

There are many different ways to get essential oil benefits, including:

  • Topically (massage, acupuncture, acupressure, warm compress, cold packs, layering on skin, and in the bath or shower)
  • Aromatically (using a diffuser - Read our tips on how to choose an essential oil  dffuser, and direct inhalation from the bottle or your palm) 
  • Internally (orally in a gel cap, or cooked into food)

Please note that most essential oils found in local stores, even health food stores, are not safe to be used internally.

Not all essential oils are equal, of course. The growth conditions of the plant, the method of extraction, and the final constituents in the bottle can vary greatly from brand to brand.    

How to use essential oils

Each essential oil has a purpose – such as relaxation, soothing stressed muscles, and detoxifying and cleansing the skin. There are many essential oils and oil blends, and hundreds of ways and reasons to use them.

You can also create your own massage oil recipe by combining a high quality vegetable (carrier) oil with the essential oil or massage oils of choice.

Good choices for carrier oils include coconut oil, sesame seed oil, and sweet almond oil. Some aromatherapy treatment services use grapeseed and avocado oils as well.

Pure essential oils will not go rancid when stored properly, however, they can go bad, and if used after their safety date, may cause skin rashes, inflammation, and/or irritations.

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 those who want to learn about what to do after massage school....how to build a business from scratch, how to create a website that works for your business, how to create social media posts to engage clients, how to create Facebook Ads, effective SEO practices, and so much more.

I have spent thousands of dollars on advertising my business in newspapers, only to get a few clients, that may or may not return and become a regular customer, and it almost drained me financially.

Finding a way to build my business online for free became my only goal, and I spent many hours studying how folks grow a business with little-to-no money through social media.

Now, because of all I went through to grow my business, I teach  the benefits of building an online space, easy SEO and social media tips, and how sales funnels are now the way to make an additional online income, and make life so much better!

What's my passion? Massage therapy always and forever is my love, but helping people learn how to grow an online business is a very close second!

So, let's build your business, your dream, and grow together!
