Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

As the weather changes our midwest atmosphere, I change the essential oils I use for massages. To a base of sesame oil, which settles restlessness, add Sandalwood (3 drops), Geranium, which cools and soothes (10 drops), Juniper-heats (4 drops) or Ginger-heats (2 drops) per ounce of oil. This is especially good for low back aches that come in the winter.

There are not many I use that are good for moisture content. The ones that I know of are cooling oils, so we have to add heating or hot oils to balance the thermal nature of the oils.
