How to Make CBD Aromatherapy Massage Oil at Home

Creating your own CBD massage oil is a rewarding activity


Tailor to Your Specific Needs and Preferences

CBD massage oils are gaining popularity in the wellness and spa industry for their potential therapeutic benefits. With the rise of at-home self-care routines, making your own CBD massage oil can bring the luxurious spa experience to your living room at a fraction of the cost. Whether you're a wellness advocate, a CBD enthusiast who wants to personalize their massage experience, or a professional massage therapist looking to craft custom oils for clients, this guide will walk you through the process from start to finish.

The Benefits of Homemade CBD Massage Oil

Crafting your own CBD massage oil provides full control over the ingredients used, ensuring that the end product is tailored to your specific needs and preferences. It allows you to select the carrier oil, essential oils, and the concentration of CBD to create a blend that's perfect for your skin type and the desired outcome of the massage.

CBD massage oil can potentially offer the following benefits:

  • Reducing inflammation
  • Easing muscle tension and soreness
  • Moisturizing and nourishing the skin
  • Possibly providing therapeutic relief for those with chronic pain

Choosing the Right Essential Oils

Essential oils play a significant role in the scent and potential therapeutic effects of the massage oil. Each essential oil has its own unique aroma and benefits, so it's essential to select oils that complement the properties of CBD and your desired outcome.

Some popular essential oils for massage oils include:

  • Lavender: Known for its soothing properties; perfect for a calming, pre-bedtime massage.
  • Eucalyptus: Has a cooling effect and a refreshing aroma, ideal for invigorating massages.
  • Peppermint: Renowned for its ability to relieve headaches and muscular pain.
  • Chamomile: With its anti-inflammatory properties, it's excellent for calming sensitive or irritated skin.
  • Rosemary: A natural pain reliever, great for muscle aches and tension.

Supplies You'll Need

Before you begin, collect the following supplies:

  • High-quality CBD isolate or a reliable source of CBD oil
  • A carrier oil such as jojoba, sweet almond, or grape seed oil
  • Essential oils of your choice
  • A glass dropper or pipette for accurate measurements
  • A glass jar or bottle to store the massage oil
  • A double boiler or a pan and a heat-safe container for melting ingredients
  • Labels and a permanent marker to identify your creation

Crafting Your CBD Massage Oil

Step 1: Choosing the Right CBD

The heart of your massage oil is the CBD.

If you are working with CBD isolate, you can measure and adjust the quantity of CBD for each batch. CBD oil, on the other hand, already comes pre-dosed and ready to mix with your carrier oil.

Step 2: Selecting a Carrier Oil

The carrier oil will be what carries the CBD and essential oils into your skin.

Jojoba oil is similar to the skin's natural oils and is best for sensitive skin. Sweet almond oil is rich in vitamins and great for moisturizing, while grape seed oil is light and easily absorbed, making it ideal for massages.

Step 3: Essential Oils Blending

Combine the chosen essential oils with the carrier oil. This is where you can personalize your CBD massage oil for the aroma and desired effect.

Use a dropper to ensure you're adding the right amount of each essential oil to your mixture. As a general rule, you'll use about 12 drops of essential oils per ounce of carrier oil.

Step 4: Mixing All the Ingredients

In a double boiler or a pan with a heat-safe container inside, gently warm the carrier oil.

If you're using CBD oil, add it to the warm carrier oil mixture and stir until well combined.

Turn off the heat and let the oil slightly cool before adding essential oils to preserve their therapeutic qualities and not to expose them to direct heat.

Stir the mixture well and let it sit for a few hours to ensure all the components are fully integrated.

Step 5: Storing Your Massage Oil

Once the mixture has reached room temperature, pour it into a dark glass jar or bottle. Dark glass is preferred as it helps protect the oils from UV light.

Cap the bottle tightly and store it in a cool, dark place to maintain the integrity of the oils.

Safety Precautions

  • Always conduct a patch test to ensure that you do not have an adverse reaction to any of the oils.
  • Consult a healthcare professional if you have any skin conditions or are pregnant before using the massage oil.


Creating your own CBD massage oil is a rewarding activity that allows for a personalized and potentially therapeutic massage experience. By following this guide and paying attention to the quality of your ingredients, you can enjoy the benefits of self-made CBD massage oils in the comfort of your own space. Remember to adjust the oil blend to your preferences and health considerations, and always enjoy the relaxation and rejuvenation that comes with a massage.
