If you don’t have the time or money to schedule a session with a masseuse, you can easily use self-massage as a technique to soothe yourself. All you need is your favorite essential oil, your choice of carrier oil, and the ability to apply pressure to different areas of your body including your hands and feet.
Self Massage with Essential Oils
Some self-massage techniques to try using high-quality essential oils include:
- A Hand and Wrist Massage. This technique is great if you work on a computer all day or do a lot of handiwork. It prevents carpal tunnel. What you’ll want to do is apply a liberal amount of essential oil onto your hands and wrists. Using the thumb of each hand, gentle massage the hands, fingers, knuckles, and wrist using small circular motions. Go clockwise then counter clockwise until you feel the oil has been saturated into the skin. Do this on both hands first thing in the morning and allow your hands to dry thoroughly before resuming work. You don’t want to get oil on your computer or needlework.
- Feet Massage. Place a towel on the floor where your feet are. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil blend to a clean tennis ball. Place it under one of your feet and roll it around from top to bottom and left to right. Place some more essential oil onto the ball before switching feet. Do this as often as you feel it necessary. To keep oil off your floor or carpet, put on a pair of fuzzy socks as they will soak up some of the massage oil for you.
