Giving and receiving massages with friends and loved ones has numerous positive effects. Beyond helping with muscle aches and pains and relieving anxiety and tension, massage has been scientifically proven to decrease cortisol levels, increase dopamine and serotonin (our happy, feel-good hormones), and increase beta-endorphin levels, which is linked with pain relief and feelings of warmth and well-being.
Full body self oil massage is also very therapeutic. It has many of the same effects of receiving a massage from someone else, and can help to powerfully connect you to yourself and your body.
Our Dragontree Massage Oil was specifically formulated by Ayurvedic Specialist, Briana Borten, to be appropriate for all constitutions. In Ayurveda, oil is a highly regarded healing agent. In fact the word "sneha" in hindi means both “love” and “oil". Having liberal amounts oil applied to the skin is seen as an act of love and caring.
The base oil in our blend is safflower oil. We use this oil of a lovely orangey-red flower the most because it is balanced oil, it’s virtually scentless, it feels very clean, and is readily absorbed by the skin. We add vitamin E to promote healing of the skin, and as a natural anti-oxidant, it preserves the oil.
Our massage oil is pure and natural and has no fake fragrances and no unnatural preservatives.See the complete ingredient list.
