How to Choose the Best Massage Oil?

Massage Oil 101 - Choose the right one for you

You know that greasy and uncomfortable feeling after a good massage? Maybe it’s because you are using a chemical, petrol-based, massage oil. And if you are already using the good, natural stuff, it might be because you are using the WRONG kind of oil for YOUR skin type.

SO, which one to choose? There are so many wonderful options out there and we know it can be a little overwhelming. That’s why we created this chart to help you evaluate the different options.

(Pssst … we highlighted our favorites with our Désirables’ Stamp.)

Our top 3 Best Massage Oil

    • Sunflower Oil have a special place in our hearts since it's the base of our wonderful massage oil OMEHA.  It leaves no greasy residue on the skin, doesn't smell anything, is perfect for sensitive skin, comes from a gorgeous flower... And it's made right here in Canada. That's what we call a winner! 👍
    • Macadamia Nut’s Oil is our second favorite, mainly because it has the same properties as the sunflower oil. What's great about this oil though, is that it comes from an Australian native tree that helps in protecting the wildlife and fauna in arid regions. And the production of Macadamia Oil helps to protect these trees, which means they can continue to give refuge to the local fauna.
    • Jojoba oil is actually a wax! That’s probably the reason why it's the carrier with the longest shelf-life. It comes mostly from the South of the United States and the North of Mexico. Which makes it a local product!


We haven't talked about EVERY oil options on the market but we tried to cover the basics. So, whatever oil is your favorite, you should always strive to buy a cold-pressed and organic carrier oil.

If you want to make your own massage oil at home (DIY style) or just want to buy an oil that is ethical, high quality (and  made with love), here is our favorite spots in Canada.
