The key to a good massage lies in two things — the skill of the masseuse, and the ingredients of the massage oil used.
People today are so busy that they prefer the convenience that home service companies provided, massages included. So you can sell your oils to these service companies, or simply hire a few extra people and open your own service.
Start-up capital is P250 for 4 ounces of oil, and time to finish is 5 minutes.
- Any bottle that holds between 4 fluid ounces and 8 fluid ounces, depending on how much would you like to make. Amber glass is preferred because the colored glass protects the contents from ultraviolet rays that can cause oxidation and degradation.
- 6 teaspoons of carrier oil (examples are sweet almond, grapeseed, and canola)
- 8 drops of essential oil
Oils are available from chemical stores.
- First, decide on the purpose of your oil. Is it too relax? To create a sensuous mood? This is to determine which essential oil to use. For example, lavender and jasmine are used for relaxation, while the citruses (lemon and lime) and mints (peppermint) are for energizing.
- Once you’ve decided, select one or more of the essential oils.
- Pour one-two tablespoons of the carrier oil into low, shallow bowl, and add a few drops of the selected essential oil or oils, swirling the bowl around to blend.
- If you make more oil than you need, pour remainder into a small stoppered bottle — essential oils are very volatile and will evaporate out of the blend if left uncovered in the open air.
- Pour your finished oil into your amber bottle and close the lid tightly.
How Much Will You Make
- You can put a markup of as much as 200 percent, whether it’s a 10ml or 100ml bottle. You may even make a set of different formulations and sell them as a gift pack for a higher price.
