Rosebud Woman offers perfect massage products for self-massage or a massage with others.
What Makes a Good Massage Oil?
A basic massage oil adds glide and slickness to the skin's surface to reduce friction and aid the hands in kneading muscles and joints. A good massage oil is non-toxic, and slippery without being greasy. A great massage oil has added benefits, such as nourishing the skin, building collagen, adding adaptogenic herbs, and can help with scars and stretch marks.
Massage Oil Vs. Cream?
There are a few different types of products you can use to massage someone, so depending on what you’re looking for you might find one type of massage product is better suited for your needs.
Massage oil is the most commonly used massage product seen in spas or massage practices. Massage oil can consist of a variety of different carrier or base oils. The selection of the base oil is important, as it determines absorption, as well as the type of nourishment offered to the skin. The base oil in our massage oil is a custom blend of delicate grapeseed oil, meadowfoam seed oil (rich in Vitamin E), apricot kernel oil (soothing) and rosehip oil (rich in Vitamin A and C). Additional beneficial herbs and oils include plant-based healers such as schisandra chinensis, pennywort, jasmine, rosemary, and more. The use of massage oil helps the hands to knead muscle tissue, but an added benefit is nourishing the skin while relieving tension.
Massage cream is usually a lot thicker than an oil, which could account for less slippage during the massage. If you intend to spend a lot of time concentrating on one area of the body, possibly for a medical massage, a massage cream might be more suited for your needs. Soothe is the perfect massage cream for concentrated areas, as it has a cooling sensation that will feel great on sore muscles, along with Arnica Montana, which is used in traditional plant medicine for reducing swelling and inflammation.
Should I Warm Up Massage Oil?
You don’t need to warm up massage oil in order to use the product properly, but it can definitely amplify the experience of the massage. This could make it more pleasurable and can even help soothe and relax tight muscles.
Can I Use Massage Oil for a Face Massage?
Not all massage oils are meant for the face, but no need to worry with our massage oil. Anoint can be used all over the body, face included! We pride ourselves on facial quality ingredients for the whole body, a category we call performance bodycare. You can even use our massage oil with a gua sha tool to help with lymphatic drainage and anti-aging.
Does Massage Oil Stain Clothes?
One of Anoint’s main benefits is that it is quick to absorb into the skin rather than leaving a sticky residue that just sits right on top of the skin. Any-oil based product can stain silk specifically, but any material that is machine washable like cotton will be fine to put on after application.
