I'm looking for quality massage oils


Hello I'm a part-time swedish massage therapist. When I first qualified I worked with oil and then years later as my techniques improved I switched to using Biotone deep tissue lotion. I would now like to start using oil again, but rather than use Neals Yard products I thought I would try to search for another home grown, but smaller business that produces and supplies quality base massage oils (made from natural ingredients, organically-produced and cold-pressed etc) Can anyone recommend a London based company? Thank you so much for taking the time to read! Dora

Hi Dora I too am also a part time mobile massage therapist. I currently use a company called naturally thinking (www.naturallythinking.com), they are similar to Neal Yards but a lot cheaper. Their oils are organic and cold pressed. They have a very good quick delivery time, if Odets are placed before 12 they can deliver next day. Have a look and see what you think? Hope this helps Kind regards Laurel

Hi Dora I'm a qualified aromatherapist and I use a company called Aromantic, who are based in Forres, Scotland but source their oils from a variety of places i.e. Calendula is sourced from a small grower in Wales - they offer a wide range of organic vegetable oils used for making natural skin care and cosmetic products. Also avilable are recipes, equipment and they have a helpline with very experienced, knowledgeable staff - they also run classes in Scotland and London showing you how to mix oils, lotions, and potions and how to make your own range of toiletries, creams, etc. They are very reasonably priced and orders can be done online or by phone - their website is certainly worth a look - www.aromantic.co.uk.
