PLEASE READ!!!!!! If someone comes to your front door & asks you to remove your clothes & dance with your arms in the air, DO NOT do this, it is a scam, they just want to see you naked.  I wish I had received this yesterday, I feel stupid now!  Either way, you need to get naked to use this oil.

I’ve tried all kinds of recipes for massage oil…and perhaps the moon phase was wrong, or the tide was too low…but I could never get it just right.

Until now.

Michael and I were participating in marriage therapy, otherwise known as grocery shopping.  An idea hit us. Coconut oil.  Coconut oil solves everything.

Michael suggested making massage oil, and I was like shut up lets do it right now and then we did it.

Not that.  I know what you were thinking.  Okay that.

Where were we?

See that massage oil up there? ^^ Life changing.

Bee tee dubs.:  did you know that there are 556347340865 tutorials out there on essential oil uses?  Forget them all.  This is the best one. Don’t try and fact check me.  I think the internet is down today.

When I figured out how to make this essential oil massage oil … I believe I may have screamed.

I don’t want to deflate your love tires or get you all kinds of grossed out… but we need to talk about your sheets.  Many massage oils stain your sheets with-gahross-yellow-dinginess… but not this one.

That was awkward, right?   Okay bye.

Wait, did you leave?

If you come back, can you tell my Mom that this recipe is actually a moisturizing oil for dry skin?  I’m sure she’s all kinds of wigged out by now too.  She probably thinks I slipped on the crazy scale right about now.

My fave:  I use Ylang Ylang essential oil for pretty much e v e r y t h i n g .   Massage oil.  Body  lotion.  Moisturizer.  Room diffuser.  Cleaning.  Driving in my car.  Paying Bills.   Booking travel.  Kidding.   Basically, ylang ylang is all over my dang place and it makes me so stinking happy.

1. Avery square labels  or just print on paper & cut the squares.  I did.  With this.   I love the satisfaction of cutting paper into fancy dancy squares.  You too, weirdo? Here’s some free label printables..

2.   4 oz amber bottles with mist sprayer or pump.  I buy mine with the lid and buy the sprayer and pumps separately, because I love the look of the lids too.

3.  4 oz. Coconut oil … It’s d’bomb dot com.  No seriously.  Divine.

4.   50 drops Ylang ylang essential oil.   Imagine what heaven smells like.  It smells like that.

Optional and totes fun for gift giving…

5.   Tags and twine

This essential oil massage oil is so stupid easy to make, you’ll want to punch yourself in the face.

Gently pour coconut oil into a glass bottle add your fave essential oil.  Done, ya dang hippie.

 I M P O R T A N T 

Use fractionated coconut oil !!  <— Sorry to yell. I nearly forgot that part!  It hasta hasta hasta be fractionated so it is soft and flowy.  Whaaa?  Trust me.  You need flowy coconut oil not that solid stuff in a jar.  ewhhh.

PS. Never trust anyone who says trust me.  Except me.

F r a c t i o n a t e d.

Do it.

Here’s the thing…You can totally experiment with different oils to get that exact scent you want. I’ve combined bergamot, lavender and/or rose with my fave ylang ylang.  Because I’m a complete weirdo, I prefer the slightly flowery sensual scent of ylang ylang essential oil.  Gah, it’s so nice.  Please don’t tell the authorities about my obsession.

There’s probably a bonk ton of rules on how to apply essential oils, where to apply them, what to put them on, how to add them at the right moon phase while doing koombaya trust falls… but I’m telling you guys….I’ve been just throwing mine in a bottle with coconut oil and boom… magic happens … boom-chicka-wow-wow.

PS.  here’s the recipes for bath bombs and a DIY poop-pouri toilet spray (with free labels!) with essential oil.  They are kickass amazing.  Legit.  Who me? Obsessed with essential oil much?  Nope.  Yes.

This is probably where I should say, consult a doctor and therapist and perhaps your mother in law, an elder in your community, an escaped convict… anyone… if you are unsure about using essential oils.   I’ve been using them for forever and I swear there is nothing.wrong.with.me.

Nothing.  Wrong.  With.  Me.

Right?  Don’t answer that. I wasn’t a real question.

I use pure essential oils though, and not ‘perfume’ essential oils (AKA fake essential oil.)

Get the real deal.

Wow! what a fantastic website you have. I hope I do not lose touch with this, it’s bangin! I found this extremely funny reading your blog – Just the way I talk only your better at it! Wonderful and refreshing. I will try this mix and let you know!
LOL to you and good luck with all this!


I’m having trouble printing the labels. It says page not found when I clicked on both

[…] This aromatherapy massage oil.  Holy batman.  I’m not going to get all researcher-y on you with fancy health facts, mostly because I don’t know any. I just know it feels good.  My body feels smoother than normal. Which makes me more vivacious-er than normal. Which is officially a nightmare for you.  50 shades of grey? I’m happy with one shade. This massage oil is at least a shade or two.  If you really want total vivaciousness, try these essential oil bath bombs too.   […]


I’m confused about the assembly
4 oz coconut and 50 drops ylang ylang makes how much..?
Thank you

Lynne, this will make you feel even better about Ylang Ylang. Thought of you when I came across it.

Bronwyn Pearce

Hi Lynne! Happy Holidays to you and your beautiful family! You tickled my fancy with your PooPourri. & Love Oil. And because of this, I’ve decided to give a handmade Christmas. I’m going to take a detour from the normal corporate Christmas and make up some fun gift baskets. I just ordered the whole kitten kaboodle on Amazon. You made it super duper easy. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. But especially, THANK YOU for getting my creativity flowing. I really need to get my artsy fartsy mojo back! On a Michael note… I’ve been following your story for years.… Read more »

This is so timely – been researching “best” oils for massage and am also an essential oil freak so my searching is over. Will try to make next week. I’ve been using a few drops of Bergamont after using “the john” for years and works great to clear the air if ya know what I mean. I agree- you are BEST blogger out there when needing an escape, good laugh AND great diy’s!
Hugs to you Lynne!

What a great read – so funny and totally something I am going to have to do for a gift one day, maybe just less about the under the covers, for mom’s sake LOL 🙂


FYI, coconut oil is not condom-safe – it breaks down latex. A good thing to know BEFORE you use the massage oil. 🙂

Damn! Didn’t know about your Ylang Ylang obsession- I would’ve sent you my 2nd Chakra oil or spray (ORGANIC SWEET ORANGE*, TANGERINE*, ORGANIC YLANG YLANG*, PATCHOULI*, ORGANIC CARDAMOM*, BLUE TANSY* *essential oil).

You do know I’m a nationally board certified massage therapist, right?!!

Did I tell you about the time I got rid of ants with EO’s??

All love – PS ask mom for those who aren’t on your side of the world what is DAwn. We be on da side where de sun shines brightly on Africa particularly in Sunny Souff Afrika! Love the cleaning tips she gave on the other post! Hehe


Hi Lynne,
Wonderful gift idea. I’m always looking for gift suggestions for the grown children….they have everything!
Anyways, you’re in Ontario? And order off Amazon.com? I looked on amazon.ca and all their containers
are “unavailable”! What’s with that?! I’m assuming .com would ship to you with no problems? I know there is
regulations about what can and can’t be sent across the border. Always a hassle and usually .com is cheaper.
Going to give it a try.
Sending you wishes for a wonderful holiday season.


Really?? moisturizing oil for dry skin? Yahoo… Oil on sheets are not pretty.. I really want something that smells great, not wreck my sheets and works!! Terrific you figured this out. Why didn’t you figure this out when you were 10? Another idea Im going to try!!!… who would have figured your daughter was smarter than you? I’m going to have to start bragging about you…..Too late….:o) I confess, I brag Love & Hugs….Mom :o) ps…. I have been trying new mixtures too… I’ve been blending, hemp, wine and Grand Marnier. It smells great. Its organic, you can drink it… Read more »
