The most obvious benefit of body oils is their remarkable ability to moisturize your skin. Unlike some body lotions, the best organic body oils are free of chemicals. What’s more, body oils will lock moisture into your skin for hours, while body lotions rub off more quickly. According to How Stuff Works, when your skin has a healthy balance of moisture, it feels soft and supple, making you both look good and feel good.
If you take the time to massage body oils into your skin, your body easily will absorb them, so you won’t be left feeling greasy.
To maximize the amount of moisture that your skin absorbs, wash off any perfumes or lotions and exfoliate your skin before applying body oil. Allow the oil to soak in for at least five minutes before getting dressed so that your skin, rather than your clothing, is the thing that remains moisturised.
By massaging your skin with body oils, you can help to improve your overall health by reducing aches and pains and decreasing stress.
The skin is the last tissue to receive nutrients because blood supply is first routed to vital organs such as the heart and brain. Stress can also lead to the increased production of oxidant molecules or «free radicals» on the skin which break down cells leading to premature aging. Skin is especially sensitive because blood vessels dilate, resulting in redness and sensitivity. And as your skin cells shed, they leave your skin with a dull, dry appearance. To combat all these skin care concerns, Jamie pulls from her arsenal of therapeutic massage techniques and essential oils to improve her guests’ overall health.
Some body oils contain special blends of ingredients designed to target specific areas of your body. Some can help to relieve upset stomachs; others improve circulation, alleviate pain in sore muscles and relieve stiff joints. For example, oils that contain black pepper (Piper nigrum) or ginger (Zingiber officinale) reduce pain and improve flexibility for those suffering from arthritis while German chamomile helps to treat eczema.
