7 Reasons Jojoba Oil Is The Perfect Massage Oil

Jojoba oil has many qualities that make it the ideal oil for massage therapists. Seven reasons why you should use Cliganic's organic jojoba oil in your massage practice are described below, followed by several massage oil recipes.

  1. Jojoba Massage Oil Is Non-Allergenic. Jojoba oil mimics sebum, the body’s natural moisturizing oil. Jojoba oil is non-allergenic, meaning it can be used on all types of skin—even sensitive skin. 
  2. Jojoba Massage Oil Is Stable. Unlike other oils, jojoba oil does not oxidize or turn rancid over time because it doesn’t contain triglycerides. No refrigeration is required, and the oil can be stored indefinitely. Better yet, jojoba oil can be heated and reheated without deteriorating—making it an ideal choice for hot stone massage. The only requirement is to store jojoba oil at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.
  3. Jojoba Massage Oil Is Non-Comedogenic. This means it won’t clog pores, which makes it ideal for facial and scalp massages.
  4. Jojoba Massage Oil Is Great for the Skin. Jojoba oil is loaded with Vitamin E and B and beneficial minerals (like chromium, copper, and zinc) that nourish skin. Jojoba oil is also a natural antioxidant. Your clients will love how your massage relaxes their body while nourishing their skin.
  5. Jojoba Massage Oil Isn’t Greasy and Oily. Unlike other oils used in massage therapy, jojoba oil leaves skin feeling soft, smooth, and conditioned without leaving clients feeling oily, sticky, or greasy. Jojoba oil absorbs easily into the skin but not too quickly—preventing the need to continuous reapplication. Your clients will love how their skin feels after a massage and won’t feel like they need to take a shower.
  6. Jojoba Massage Oil Is the Perfect Carrier Oil for Essential Oils. If you use essential oils in your massage practice, jojoba oil is the perfect carrier oil because it has no fragrance of its own-—making it the ideal choice for aromatherapy massage.
  7. Jojoba Massage Oil Won’t Stain Fabrics. Jojoba oil tends to stay on the skin without transferring to fabrics. However, if jojoba oil gets on cotton fabrics, it can easily be washed out using hot water and detergent. (Synthetic fabrics may require a pre-wash treatment such as Shout.) This means the sheets you use in your massage practice will be easy to clean. With jojoba oil, less is more so be sure to experiment to determine the optimum amount to use in your massage practice.

"I recently researched the best treatment for dry skin and scalp...I then came across some helpful info on the benefits of Jojoba oil and decided to look for an organic brand. Your oil is truly wonderful. I now use it exclusively for skin and scalp, only adding frankincense essential oil for its calming effects. This combo is exceptional. I'm very glad I found Cliganic."
