Since body oils and massage oils are both oils, it is natural to think they are similar, if not the same, but there are clear differences between the two. The skin absorbs body oils and massage oils in different ways, providing two distinct outcomes: Body oils help to create soft and silky skin while massage oils work to relax tense muscles.
Body oils include richer carrier oils that absorb quickly into the skin. Carrier oils typically come from plants and are created when things like nuts, seeds or kernels are pressed. This helps the skin remain soft and silky. Body oils can be used in lighter massages, but they are not specifically made for deeper massages and will not perform as well as massage oils, which include carrier oils that glide more smoothly during the massage. For best results of body oil, apply to clean, damp skin after a shower or bath.
Massage oils should simply rub into tense or sensitive areas as needed. They apply smoother which require fewer applications and can easily help relax muscles. The difference between body oils and massage oils is the type of carrier oils used and the ratio of essential oils. Each serves a unique and different therapeutic benefits and purpose.
Bath Body and Massage Oil is intended to be used in the bath or in the shower. Spread during a bath in the contact with water it forms an emulsion, and the aromas pamper the senses. After the bath, all you need is to dry the skin with the towel.
