DIY Valentine's Massage Bars

For some, there’s no better feeling than getting a relaxing, tension-relieving massage. To enhance any massage (especially for Valentine’s Day) try making our DIY Massage Bar which includes 100% pure essential oils.

Making our Massage Bar starts with a nourishing base. We added Pomegranate carrier oil because it’s high in punicic acid and beneficial for its anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial uses. We also used mango butter for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, astringent and moisturizing properties. Next, use a silicone mold to create a bar with ridges, pegs or textures. This is what sets apart a lotion bar from a massage bar. Then, add the passion-inducing blend of your choice, such as Aphrodisiac, Love, Aromance or XOXO to spark affection. That, and a set of skillful hands, is all it takes to make the perfect Valentine’s day massage bar. Enjoy!  

What you need

Silicone massage bar mold

2 oz Pomegranate carrier oil

3 oz Soy wax

1 oz Mango butter

72 drops of Aphrodisiac, Love, Aromance or XOXO

Dried flower petals, buds (optional)

How to

Yield: About 3 massage bars (if using this mold)

In a double boiler, melt the soy wax and mango butter, then stir in the Pomegranate carrier oil. Once fully melted, remove from heat and add in the essential oils of your choice. Place the mold on top of a baking sheet or tray. If using flower petals, add them to the bottom of your cleaned silicone mold, then pour the mixture in. Transfer the tray to a fridge and let chill for a couple hours. Very carefully remove the massage bars from the mold (you might want to practice on one). Place the massage bars on a cute tray or dish and set aside for a peaceful, loving massage.

Note: Keep massage bars away from heat, and store in a cool, dry area.

Cheryl, unless the fragrance is labeled as “lip safe,” it may not be ok to use in a lip balm. Many of our essential oils can be used in making lip balms however. Contact our aromatherapist to learn more:

Hi there! Can you tell me when using a fragrance oil can I use this to make a lip balm safely?
