There are very few oils that can be used neat on the skin and some can interact with medication, medical conditions etc. so never use these without prior training and, if in doubt, ask a trained professional if a particular oil is suitable for you. This is a tutorial and aromatherapy massage should not be performed by anyone who is untrained in the subject. Likewise, only clinically trained aromatherapists should mix oil blends, due to the potency and effects of the oils. Those who are trained in massage (but not clinically) should use pre-blended oils only. Always remember to perform a full consultation and make sure there are no ailments present that prevent a massage first; you want it to be beneficial and it should never feel uncomfortable. Happy massaging!
