Massage is a very beneficial therapy, and by adding therapeutic grade essential oils to the massage you get multiple benefits.  If your massage therapist does not stock the essential oils you prefer to use, such as Young Living medicinal essential oils, then always remember to bring your own with you to your massage/aromatherapy session appointments.

The following is a suggestion list of several essential oils and their uses:

CAUTION!! If you ever get essential oils in your eye, NEVER wash it out with water!! Put either V6 oil or any plain olive, almond or whatever oils you have in your kitchen on a tissue and gently wipe your eyes out. This will dilute the essential oil and greatly lessen any discomfort.
