Pamper Your Partner With These Homemade Massage Oils


After a day of chasing kids, a nice massage might really do the trick. Unfortunately, a day at the spa isn't always in the budget or the schedule when you have a family. Luckily, you can still give your partner the benefit of a relaxing massage. Here are some massage oils that you can make at home. You can use them to give your partner a spa day right in the luxury of your own home.

Taking care of kids all day can be extremely stressful. You can help your partner relax by using this simple stress-relief massage oil.

  • 15 drops of orange essential oil

  • 5 drops of marjoram essential oil

  6. Wrap their feet with the warm towel and have them relax for about 15 minutes.

Spa dates aren't always in the budget, but that doesn't mean you can't pamper your partner right at home. You can use these homemade massage oils to give your partner the pampering they deserve.

what to expect during your first massage

Going for a first-time massage can be a little intimidating. With so many types of massages available, how do you know what kind you would enjoy the most and what would be most beneficial to you? I can remember my first massage and how I felt walking into the spa for it. I was worried that I was going to do something inappropriate or not get the type of massage that I pictured myself getting. Since then, I have gone for weekly massages and have had every type of massage available to me at the spa that I visit. Read on to learn all about what to expect during your first massage and a short description of each type of massage.
