Choose the Right Body Massage Oil,
Reap All the Benefits
Here at Wild Crush we are very familiar with the benefits of using oil for erotic body massages. And, no, it’s not just because it’s a super sensual, elevated experience. There are tons of other benefits to using body oil for your massage, including great skincare outcomes. Here's our guide to help you choose the right body massage oil and reap all the beautiful benefits.
Olive Oil: Great for light massages
Adding olive oil to a lighter, gentler massage — like Swedish massage — can be super relaxing, soother your muscles, and lock moisture into your skin so that it feels softer and smoother after. It’s also said to increase blood circulation, which helps further ease aches, pain, and inflammation. It's also shown to be able to detoxify skin and calm skin that has been “stressed.” Olive oil is great for balancing out and relaxing your skin and muscles.
Coconut Oil: Quick absorption for heavy massages
Not only is coconut oil a fantastic moisturizer for the skin due to its quick absorption, it also promotes the health of your body’s protective skin barrier. Because of its light and quick-absorbing consistency, coconut oil is perfect for heavier, more intense massage treatments like deep tissue, sports massages, and Shiatsu. Coconut oil has also been shown to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Check out the Shiatsu Luxury Body Oil Edible Coconut And Pineapple
Almond Oil: Improve your complexion
Sweet almond oil is another fast-absorbing oil that is awesome for your skin. Almond oil is known to improve skin tone and your complexion, which is why it’s popular to use for facial massages. Many will also use sweet almond oil for foot massages, as the oil has antifungal properties as well. You can even mix almond oil with your favourite essential oils to give it a calming or exciting scent. Check out our almond based oil Shunga Sensual Massage Oil Amour Sweet Lotus
Jojoba Oil: Gentle on sensitive skin
Jojoba oil is very kind to your skin, as it won’t clog your pores and it's rich in both vitamins B and E. Like other oils on the list, it has antioxidant properties that enrich and clarify skin. Jojoba oil is especially great for sensitive skin and people who suffer from allergies, as it’s completely hypoallergenic and unscented. If you want to add a scent, the oil takes very well to mixing with the essential oil of your choice.
Grapeseed Oil: Skin as plump as a grape
As a natural astringent, grapeseed oil is a fabulous choice to use with a massage if you have oily skin. It’s still a light, cleansing oil, so it will be delicate enough on the face while still tightening and brightening your skin tone. These properties are also great for use on repairing sun-damaged skin. Even though it has powerful skin-tightening and cleansing properties, it’s a super gentle oil that works well on sensitive skin.

Sunflower Oil: Mix-in for sunny skin
Sunflower oil is most popularly used as a mix-in with essential oils, lotions, skin butters, and many other skincare products. It’s most known for its ability to really hydrate the skin, leaving it noticeably smoother and softer after massage treatment. A little goes a long way, so you can mix small amounts of sunflower oil into your favourite massage oil for the ultimate hydrating. A truly rejuvenating massage experience.
Avocado Oil: Nutrient-rich and healing
Avocado oil is nutrient-dense, making it one of the more powerful restorative oils you can use during massage. You’ll want to try using avocado oil if you suffer from eczema, itchy skin, very dry skin, damaged and chapped skin, and more. It’s also believed to have protective properties. Antioxidants and nutrients found in avocado oil are able to protect your skin from harmful UV rays, so feel free to take that massage outdoors. It also has shown to increase the production of collagen, which is good for your skin’s health and youthfulness.
Argan Oil: Anti-aging antioxidants
Argan oil is used widely in haircare, cosmetics, and skincare. This is because it’s rich in fatty acids and antioxidants that are touted as having significant anti-aging properties. Consistent use of argan oil on skin has shown in some instances to improve its elasticity. Argan oil is also great for treating or lessening the symptoms of acne, eczema, and other skin conditions. Its consistency and scent make for a really relaxing, soothing experience when used for massage.
Kukui Nut Oil: A luxurious massage experience
You may not have heard of kukui nut oil, but this Hawaii and Philippines sourced oil has long been a luxury in those areas. It’s especially effective for its restorative properties, so it works fast to heal damaged skin. It also has a very pure, smooth consistency that allows it to glide on skin, creating a fabulous sensation for your body oil massage. It’s a popular choice for luxurious oil massages, and is sure to make for a sensual experience in your own home.
