Formulating Massage Oils For Couples

< Back

This Valentine’s Day, we’re helping make connections by sharing our most sensual essential oil ingredients for formulating massage oils for couples.

Massage oils are a great way for couples to relax and connect by creating the perfect atmosphere to stimulate all the senses. When it comes to intimacy and relationships, certain essential oils have specific properties that can enhance connection between partners.

And, with the global massage oil market expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 7.2% to 2025 and reach USD 4.55 billion, there’s a clear opportunity for brands who want to make moves in the massage oil market…

Here are the top three naturally sourced and sustainable essential oil ingredients, perfect for romantic massage oil formulations.


Organic Ylang-Ylang Essential Oil

Our Organic Ylang-Ylang 3 Essential Oil is a magical oil that can elevate romantic experiences to a whole new level. Its sweet and floral aroma is known to be an aphrodisiac, promoting feelings of love, desire and sensuality.

Ylang-Ylang oil can help reduce stress, increase happiness, and promote a more relaxed state of mind, which is perfect for creating a romantic mood. Its soothing scent can calm nerves, making it easier for couples to connect on a deeper level.

Not only does Ylang-Ylang have an intoxicating scent, it’s also a natural skin moisturizer, leaving skin silky smooth to the touch.

Its ability to create a sensual atmosphere, promote relaxation, and leave skin silky soft makes it the perfect addition to any romantic massage oil formulation.


Organic Frankincense Essential Oil

Our Organic Frankincense (Boswellia Carterii) essential oil is one of the most sought after and beloved essential oils for good reason. Its rich, earthy aroma has a grounding effect that can bring peace, calm and clarity to the mind, making it the perfect natural ingredient for massage oils.

Not only does Frankincense help to create a peaceful atmosphere, but it also has a number of properties that can enhance the romantic experience. Its natural ability to promote feelings of love, joy and sensuality make it a must-have oil ingredient for setting the mood…

Additionally, Frankincense has been used to improve circulation, promote skin health and soothe sore muscles, improving the overall relaxation experience. It can also leave your skin feeling silky smooth and moisturised, making it a great choice for couples who want to connect.


Organic Sandalwood Essential Oil

Our Organic Sandalwood essential oil is a luxurious and romantic ingredient that has a warm, woody, and sensual aroma that creates an atmosphere of relaxation and comfort, but it also offers a wealth of benefits for the mind, and body.

Sandalwood essential oil can help soothe and calm the senses, while promoting feelings of peace, tranquillity, and sensuality. The oil is quickly absorbed by the skin, leaving it hydrated and glowing. This makes it an ideal ingredient in couples’ massage oils, where partners can come together in a shared moment of intimacy, relaxation, and rejuvenation.

Sandalwood oil also has natural antiseptic properties, which make it a great ingredient for promoting skin health and preventing dryness and irritation.


These romantic essential oil ingredients can also be used in candles, bath oils and diffusers to help set the scene for the perfect Valentine’s Day treat.

With so many essential oils on the market, it can be difficult to know which ones to choose. At O&3 we have an unrivalled database of natural ingredients, and all the technical know-how, to help you formulate a product that truly stands out. Read more about our Formulation & Bottling services now.
