I’ve been experimenting with some of doTERRA blend essential oils recently. The blends they offer really interested me, they include several essential oils put together by skilled aromatherapists to make a blend specific to certain health and wellbeing conditions.
The AromaTouch Massage Blend essential oil has been designed to help provide comforting and relaxing effects. It’s an absolutely stunning massage oil containing a list of ingredients that relax muscles, lessen tension, and give a lovely, aromatic, soothing massage.
I’ve used this oil a few times now and have to say I’m in love. I used to make my own blends from a few different oils as I lie to experiment, but I’ve become lazy now I’ve found this blend as it’s done for you. And, it’s a better blend that I’ve ever made.
Here is a complete review with all the specifics and other bits of information I’ve been able to dig up.

Side Effects of AromaTouch Blend Oil
If you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, or have any chronic health conditions always consult a doctor before using this blend. You should always avoid letting the oil come into contact with sensitive areas such as the eyes, mouth, and inside your ears.
Some people do experience skin sensitivity. Always use a little amount on a test area of skin first to see if you have any sensitivity reactions. One or two drops is typically fine on most people’s skin, but always dilute with a carrier oil for larger areas or if you’re concerned about any reactions.
I first heard about this oil when someone I know with neuropathy told me they were using it and it was helping them a lot. I had helped other friends make some blends to help with numbness before so I was very interested by this blend.
Check out this post for essentail oils that help with neuropathy.
The 6 essential oils used in this blend are a combination of anxiety and stress reducing oils, detoxifying, purifying, and oils rich in antioxidants and healing properties. Making this a really good all-around oil to massage into areas of the body holding a little tension or needing some attention.
It has a strong minty, fresh aroma. The aroma stays with if you work into your neck and shoulders in the morning so you can enjoy this oil while you’re at work. I also read feedback that it works wonders on calves and ankles in the morning, wrists and forearms if you type a lot, and more.
Definitely an oil to add to the collection. You’ll find yourself using this one all the time instead if individual oils, blends are the way forward, I love it!
