I’m a certified massage therapist and I use all of these products. I enjoy using circu touch and muscle relief literally DAILY. The 5-7 clients I see a day always seem happy and keep coming back! So proof is in the pudding for me!

Dawn, you can use these blends in a bath. We recommend diluting oils to 1% for bath use. We also offer a Circu-Touch bath salt you may enjoy:

I’m having shoulder surgery would this be a good blend to use to help ease the shoulder pain? If so do you recommend a carrier oil over a lotion?

Hi Rebecca! We recommend starting with a 1% dilution rate. This equals to 2 drops of Muscle Relief in 10 ml of carrier oil. Here also is our roll-on dilution chart

I have Muscle Relief and bought 10ml roller bottle. I’m confused with how many drops per ounce or teaspoon. I’ve read somewhere like 10-15 drops with 2 teaspoons carrier oil. Does that sound right? Giving a percent of dilution is confusing to me.
