FAQ: What Kind of Massage Oil do you use?

Massage OilWinter is a great time of the year. But the dryness and the low temps aren't welcome guests, especially for our skin. Just because the weather outside is frightful doesn't mean your skin needs to be. We use specialized massage oils designed to protect your skin from the harsh weather. Choose from  our unscented Moisturizing Grapeseed Oil; and Sweet Almond & Lavender, blended especially for us by Brooklyn Flavors. We feel that it is important to avoid products which use harsh chemicals and preservatives such as Parabens, in favor of using natural oils. "I feel safer using natural products" says Rachel Beider, Owner of Massage Williamsburg. "Our Massage Staff works for several hours each day, and I wouldn't want them to use something that would endanger their health or the health of our clients".

Sweet almond oil is an emollient, which is a great substance for softening the skin and leaving it hydrated. It also has vitamin B1, and it is used to improve one's complexion. Infused with lavender—which relieves stress and anxiety—Brooklyn Flavors' wonderful oil will leave your skin feeling smooth and supple in the harsh winter months ahead. Massage Oil

Our unscented grapeseed oil is moisturizing and has protective properties. Recent medical studies have found that grapeseed oil contains antioxidants and can reverse the effects of damage to the skin (such as stretch marks or age lines around the eyes). Many organic cosmetic brands use both sweet almond oil and grape seed oil as a base for lotions, creams and soaps.

We love our massage oils, and hope you will too!
