What I Love About This Massage Bar Recipe 

I love using the muscle tamer massage soap bar to loosen muscle stiffness. It’s the best thing ever. I can’t believe I never tried it before. It’s just so nice to be able to move around without feeling all stiff and tight. Not only does it help to ease my muscles, but it’s also extremely moisturizing and makes my skin soft and smooth!

What’s in This Massage Bar Recipe?

Almond Oil

Almond oil is a commonly used ingredient in massage bars. It is known for its ability to deeply penetrate the skin and provide lasting hydration. When used in a massage bar recipe, almond oil helps to create a long-lasting and nourishing product.

Coconut Oil (Solid)

Coconut oil helps the recipe remain solid at room temperature. When it comes into contact with your skin, it melts, providing a luxurious and moisturizing experience.


The beeswax beeswax in this recipe helps to create the solid consistency of this massage bar. It also has nourishing properties and helps to seal in moisture and protect the skin from environmental damage. As a result, your skin will be left feeling soft, smooth, and hydrated.

Relief Essential Oil Blend

If you’re looking for relief from muscle tension or discomfort, this is the essential oil blend for you! Relief Essential Oil Blend is a cooling blend that contains a mix of oils known for their ability to soothe. We’ve added just the right amount of each oil to create a blend that’s effective but not overpowering. 

Cajeput Essential Oil

Cajeput Essential Oil has a sweet, spicy, camphoraceous scent that’s both grounding and uplifting. When used for massage, it soothes muscles and supports joint function. It can also help to center and energize the body. 

Copiaba Essential Oil

Copaiba Essential Oil could be used in massage bars to support joint function, center and calm the mind, and just generally make the experience more soothing overall.

Things to Remember When Using This Recipe

Always dilute an essential oil when using it on the skin. This essential oil recipe is unlikely to cause skin irritation when diluted properly. If the oil has been oxidized (left with the cap off for long periods of time) it is more likely to cause skin irritation. Check out this dilution chart for diluting this essential oil properly. 

Some essential oil recipes are not generally safe to use if you are pregnant. Consult your doctor prior to use.
