Can anyone recommend a brand of massage oil?

I am just starting out a a mobile massage therapist, and wondered if anyone could recommend a good brand of massage oil. I had hoped to use Aromatherapy Associates, but they have told me that I have to have a minimum of 2-3 treatment rooms, plus a minimum initial order of £3000....which as a start up business is not feasible! Any suggestions most welcome!

Hi Clare, I always found Meadowsweet oils very good, haven't ordered for some time as been on extended mat leave so couldnt find e-mail. They are however part of the Middlesex School of Complementary Medicine, so shouldn't be to hard to find. They never asked me for a min order and i found their oils as good as anyones, just a tip though make sure you have a base oil containing no nuts for allergy sufferers, good luck. Michelle

I love tui massage waxes and they are especially good when travelling and working in other peoples' houses as they don't spill. As a therapist you can register and get them at wholesale prices, and there is no minimum order. I have always found that the delivery arrives the next day - I have NO idea how they manage that! Look at http://www.songbirdnaturals.co.uk/ Good luck Caroline

I use Quinessence and have never been asked for a minimum order. Also, delivery in 2-3 days. No errors, nice telephone staff, easy to use webby. Joyce

Hi Clare! I am a clinical aromatherapist and also blend massage oils for clients - small salons and health spas. I would be happy to mix some oils for you - one bottle at a time if you like! :-) Please get in touch if you'd like further information. Kind regards Nicky
