1.1. Preparing olive oil for body massage


Before massaging your body, you should dilute pure olive oil because it is usually very concentrated and contains many nutrients. If you use pure essential oils and the skin does not fully absorb them, an allergy may occur. Here's how to do it:


Dilute extra virgin olive oil with an essential oil or carrier oil of your choice. Some popular carrier oils are peppermint, chamomile, tea tree oil, sweet almond oil, or jojoba oil. Using essential oils diluted at a rate of 2% is considered a safe rate suitable for adult skin.


  • 10 ml of carrier oil + 6 drops of essential oil
  • 15 ml carrier oil + 9 drops essential oil
  • 30 ml carrier oil + 18 drops essential oil


Then, you can use it to massage your body right away. Or you can heat the essential oil mixture to a temperature you can tolerate. This will lighten it and make the massage more pleasant.

  • Clean your hands and body areas that need massage. You can steam with hot or warm water to dilate your pores. This helps the nutrients in essential oils easily penetrate the skin. 


  • Begin the massage by applying essential oils directly to the skin or using a towel to cover the skin. If applied directly to the skin, only a small amount of essential oil is needed. 


  • Perform gentle massage movements in an upward motion, directing the movements towards the heart. 


  • When massaging your arms or legs, massage gently in an up-and-down motion.


  • Massage the abdomen by gently pressing in a clockwise, upward circular motion


  • Massage your face gently in a circular motion from the inside out. Use your fingertips to apply a few drops of oil to your skin in an upward motion, starting at the jaw and moving toward the forehead. 


  • Once you're done massaging, wipe off excess olive oil with a warm washcloth or hot shower. 


A body massage with an olive oil treatment usually lasts from 30 to 60 minutes.

3. Tips when massaging your body with olive oil


For the massage session with olive oil to be most effective, you need to pay attention to the following issues:


  • Massage for a reasonable time. Each skin type different will recommend a reasonable time to perform the massage to promote its effectiveness. If you massage with olive oil for too long, it can cause skin irritation, cause the skin to lose elasticity, and lead to sagging. Therefore, you need to pay special attention to massage time, depending on your skin type. For dry and normal skin, using olive oil to moisturize is great, but if your skin is prone to acne, it can cause acne. 


  • It is necessary to pay attention to preserving olive oil. If it is not preserved well, or after opening the lid, if left for more than 3 months, the quality and effectiveness of olive oil will be significantly reduced. Therefore, you should store it in a cool place, away from direct sunlight. 


  • Do not use too much oil in one massage, as this will cause the skin to be overloaded and unable to absorb it all, causing waste and clogging pores. 


  • You should use quality olive oil and avoid using poor-quality products that will directly affect our skin. 



4. Side effects of olive oil massage


Besides the benefits, olive oil still has the risk of harming the skin.

Olive oil causes irritation to dry skin. According to recommendations from dermatologists, olive oil contains oleic acid. This type of substance can cause disruption of the skin's natural moisturizing membrane. Therefore, this can cause irritation for people with dry skin.


Olive oil causes more blackheads on your skin. Because the texture of olive oil is very dense, after use, you need to remove makeup thoroughly. Because if excess oil remains on the skin, it will cause clogged pores, causing hidden acne and blackheads. Furthermore, this can also make your skin less smooth and dark.


Olive oil causes a lot of acne. The most common harm when using olive oil on the skin is that it clogs pores, which is the main cause of acne. In addition, during use, when combined with other ingredients, it will be difficult to determine how much oil to use.


Olive oil causes rashes and itching. Oily skin should not use olive oil for beauty. Because oily skin is the result of excessive sebum secretion, which is difficult to control, contact with olive oil can cause reactions that cause facial skin allergies, redness, and even rashes.


Olive oil causes allergies. According to research, some people have allergic reactions when using olive oil. Therefore, if you are prone to allergies, you should be careful when using it. In addition, people who are susceptible to allergies may also experience it when using foods containing olive oil. So the best way for people with allergies is to stay away from this oil.
