  • How to make a massage oil. Citrus Massage Oil - Step 1
    Step 1

    You’ll need 2 cups of oil of your choice, one orange and one lemon. I used a combo of olive and sunflower oil. I’ve been getting 100% sunflower oil at the dollar store. It’s a nice light oil that’s high in vitamin E.

Hi! I think your project's really cool!
I was wondering if you knew baby oil would provide a good result? Or if it works at all?

Yes it does! Just be sure to strain out the peels when your oil cools. Sometimes it gets moldy!

Yes it does! I've found though that it's best to strain the oil after it's finally cool. Sometimes the peel wants to grow mold!
