You might have a closet full of rejected oils, piled up after countless experiments and trials, representing an exhausting (and often expensive!) process you seem to keep repeating. You want the best for your clients, but it seems almost impossible to find an oil that won’t irritate their skin, leave them smelling like a Yankee Candle, or have you feeling guilty about how it’s sourced.

If you’re ready to end the search and find out where to buy the best massage oil for your clients, read on!

Avoiding allergens

There’s no quicker way to ruin a massage than a rash or hives, and it’s unfortunately common for mass-market massage lotions to contain ingredients that don’t play nice with every client’s skin. The FDA identifies a list of the 8 most common allergens for labeling food, but many massage oils contain listed allergens like nut oils and extracts.

Even worse, some oils contain allergens not on the FDA list. Prime examples of this are cited by Massage Magazine, and include fragrances, parabens, and colorings, all of which might be present in a lotion, even if it’s labeled hypoallergenic! This makes it especially important to closely examine the ingredients of any massage lotion you’re interested in and to double-check with your clients about any of their allergies before starting a session.

Forget the fragrances

Aromatherapy has a storied track record when it comes to relaxation, but certain fragrances can cause allergic reactions or create unpleasant experiences for your clients. Worst of all, if an aromatherapeutic massage oil causes your client discomfort halfway into a session, there’s no way to get it off them unless they can go take a shower.

It’s better to use aromatherapy outside of your massage oil, but it can be difficult to find massage oils that don’t have some kind of scent. Many include mild scents without any indication on the packaging! In general, if a massage oil doesn’t contain any kind of aromatic ingredients like eucalyptus, citrus oils, or the FDA standardized “fragrance/perfume” label, you can be certain it won’t have any unwanted fragrances.

Sustainable sources

Unfortunately, many massage lotions and oils work check the boxes for your client’s comfort but contain some ingredients that aren’t exactly the best for the environment. Essential oils are a big culprit, and many popular oils like citrus or rose petal require massive amounts of the crop to produce enough oil, which is a major drain on water, land, and labor resources around the world.

If you feel like you’ve been hunting for a massage oil that works for your clients and the planet, then we may have something for you! Our massage therapist friends can’t get enough of Bon Vital’s Naturale massage lotion, the best massage lotion on the market for countless reasons.

Naturale lotion is allergen and fragrance-free, and it’s made from jojoba oil, an essence renowned worldwide for its ease of extraction and high yields, giving you peace of mind that this lotion isn’t needlessly taxing on the environment or those who work the crops.

Give it a try today; neither you or your clients will regret it!
