Homemade Oil for Perineal Massage

Homemade Oil for Perineal Massage

When you have a home and kids, there are bound to be times when you just feel like getting a good, old-fashioned massage. But instead of booking your regular masseuse and paying out the nose for it, why not try some DIY perineal massage? Perineal massage is an effective way to relieve tension in your lower back and pelvic muscles as well as ease any pain you might be experiencing. The perineum is located between the anus and genitalia, so this DIY oil massage is perfect if you’re having trouble with your private parts or just want to pamper yourself. You can find natural oils at almost any store that sells basic household products. Just look for brands that don’t explicitly state that their oils are not intended for use with open wounds and sensitive skin (because they most likely aren’t). Here are four homemade oils for perineal massage.

Ylang Ylang Oil

Ylang ylang is a scent that’s often associated with flowers, so this oil is perfect for when you want to get in touch with your feminine side. It’s also known as “the flower of the gods” because it can be traced back to ancient temples where it was used in rituals. This oil is great for stress relief and couples massage. To make this oil, mix 2 tablespoons of ylang ylang essential oil with 3 teaspoons of almond oil. You can also use olive oil, grape seed oil, or any other lightweight carrier oils that don’t leave an oily residue on your skin.

Take a Deep Breath

First, you’ll need to find a container that you can use to mix your oils. A glass jar works best and is also easy to clean after the massage. Next, fill the container with your chosen oils. Coconut oil, olive oil, and almond oil are all good choices for this, but any natural oil will do. Next, take a few deep breaths and focus on calming your mind before you start massaging yourself. This is important because it’s all too easy to tense up as soon as you start rubbing yourself down there!
