These are my favorite lotions, balms and other feel good on the body stuff! I have tried hundreds of these over the years and these are the ones that rise to the top. If you have a favorite let me know and maybe it will end up here.

If you are in the Seattle area, stop by Zenith Supply in the U District and check out there impressive assortment of lotions, essential oils and more. They have something like 40 lotions and oils that you can sample for free.

Shea Butter

Organic Refined Shea Butter: This is what I use for all of my massages. It helps you give a very deep massage because it holds on to the skin so well.  This is my first recommendation for any professional massage therapist that I mentor.

I buy mine from a local massage supply store, Zenith Supplies. However some former participants of the Couple’s Massage Workshop have recommended this brand from Amazon.

Hot Eucalyptus Rub

I tried well over a dozen warming lotions and eucalyptus based rubs before finding this wonderful and HOT aloe based massage rub. It gives extra heat for the sore, tired muscles. Fabulous for sports massage because the added pepper gives you the warmth you need to help that muscle relax plus the bonus benefits of Eucalyptus! I use this for my client’s feet at the very end of the massage (You can’t really touch anything else after you use it, especially your eyes :-). I apply a generous amount and wrap their feet in a hot, damp towel for about 5 minutes while I work on their calves. Then I very gently unwrap their feet and then give them a lot of personal attention! PS – Make sure you try a small amount and let it set for about 3 to 5 minutes before applying more, it gets pretty hot! Find it at The Body Logic Website
