Purity body oil is perfect for massage so here’s your step by step guide to some professional moves;
Always set the scene – a warm comfortable environment, fluffy towels , relaxing background music, light your Allumi candle, and dim the lights ! You want to create a relaxing home spa ambience….
1 Always begin by cleansing your hands first.
2 Warm the Purity Oil by massaging in your own hands.
3 Smooth the oil onto the area to be massaged with long smooth strokes using the flat palm of your hand.
4 The pressure of the stroke should always be in an upward direction, releasing pressure as you slide down to perform the stroke again.
5 To knead the muscles use your fingers and thumbs in a rhythmical fashion to relieve tension and tightness.
6 For deeper pressure, use your thumbs in deep circular fiction movements working up and across the muscle.
7 Massage is something to enjoy, so if it feels uncomfortable or painful, stop immediately – don’t do it!
8 Always seek your doctors advice if you have any medical condition before massaging.
After receiving any massage, you should relax, rest and drink water as massage can release toxins from stressed out muscles and drinking water can help flush them away.
Never massage over any recent injury or areas where there is swelling, or over lumps and bumps due to medical causes or injury. Always work gently around boney areas.
If you are alone this Valentine’s Day, then love yourself and perform a self-massage. Smother yourself in our Allumi Oil and lovingly massage the oil, smothering and smoothing the oil to your body is a beautiful affirmation of self-care and mental well-being.
With love and blessings
