Herbal Infused Massage Oils
The practice of Massage Therapy has been around for thousands of years. The use of herbal oils is just as ancient. Advanced medical practices of the Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, TCM, Ayurveda, and indigenous people all utilized medicinal herbs in the practice of medicine and wellness.
There is a wealth of information if you know where to look and take good notes! I have compiled a list of herbs from many different herbal recipes that can be infused into an appropriate carrier oil and applied to the body and absorbed. With regular application of herbal infused massage oils you will find that you are relaxed and the body nourished.
Plant based medicine is designed to assist the normal functions of the body., much in the same way as a vitamin or supplement works.
The application of herbal infused oils is not intended to replace or substitute licensed medical care. If you are taking medications prescribed by a physician or over the counter you will need to seek the advise of your physician.
Women who are pregnant, nursing, should not use certain herbal oils. If you have severe allergies to any of the ingredients or experience severe hay fever you would want to avoid herbal infused oils.
