Suki Suki Massage Oil

Just in time for Valentine's Day!! This enjoyable massage oil is a delightful gift for that special sweetheart in your life.  I decide on Jojoba Oil and Kukui Nut Oil given that together they are readily absorbed into the skin. I also blended five incredibly beautiful essential oils that have aphrodisiac and comforting properties to them.  I chose Rose Otto, Jasmine Absolute, Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood and Red Mandarin Essential Oils.  Both the Rose and the Jasmine Absolute were bought already diluted in Jojoba Oil and are a wonderful and easy on the pocket way to purchase them given that they are extremely high-priced when purchased undiluted.

This massage oil is a very romantic, dreamy and amorous blend of skin nourishing oils and sweet-smelling essential oils.

I picked up these adorable bottles from a local craft store.  I bought 18 of them for only $5.99 after my coupons and the in-store discount.  What a steal!!!

Each bottle holds about 2 ounces and comes with a cute little cork top. I love these!!!

I printed out a decorative label and applied a few heart stickers to make it a bit more special. 

The label fit perfectly on the little bottle. 

Here is the label I printed from the computer. I used the Martha Stewart brown kraft labels with the Avery Template #72428. 

Lets get started making this recipe.  I used Jojoba Oil and Kukui Nut Oil, but feel free to use whatever oil you have at home that does not have a strong aroma like coconut or sesame. Sweet almond oil would be an excellent choice.

Suki Suki Massage Oil
45 ml of Kukui Nut Oil 
15 ml of Jojoba Oil
15 drops of Rose Otto (diluted in Jojoba Oil or 2 drops if using pure absolute)
15 drops of Jasmine Absolute (diluted in Jojoba Oil for 2 drops if using pure absolute)
10 drops Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
10 drops Red Mandarin Essential Oil
8 drops Sandalwood Essential Oil

I found the Rose Otto in jojoba oil from Aura Cacia and the Jasmine Absolute in jojoba oil from Zenith Supplies in Seattle. Each blend contains about 9% essential oil or absolute.

Add the oils into the bottle using a funnel.

Measure in the essential oils.

Gently stir to mix. Place the lid on and allow to sit overnight to harmonize.

Enjoy & Green Blessings!!
