Day 13 - A relaxing hand massage




Today you have opened a glorious little bottle of Frankincense and Myrhh massage oil that can go straight onto the skin. If you love the smell, we have a cute little Gold, Frankincence & Myrrh gift set that includes oil, a crystal holder and luxury candle. Click here


Your oil is ideal for a bit of self massage – unless someone else is volunteering 😊 


It’s great during the winter months to soften and sooth dry skin.  Here’s a nice ways to use your oil:


Self Hand massage

Pour some oil into one palm then rub together, rubbing into the backs of hands and fingers. Add extra oil if needed.


Begin your hand massage by pinching the tips of each finger of your left hand. Repeat this process on your right hand. The pressure applied to your fingers should be firm, but not painful. A few seconds for each fingertip will do.


Vigorously rub from base to tip of each finger of your left hand, front and back plus sides. Reverse and repeat this process on your right hand.


Tug each finger and thumb firmly.


Using your right thumb and forefinger, firmly grasp the webbed area between your thumb and forefinger of your left hand. Keeping a firm hold, tug at the skin gently until the fleshy web snaps away from your grasp. Repeat this process for the areas between all your fingers. Reverse and repeat this process on your right hand.


Turn your left-hand palm down. Use your right thumb to massage the back of your hand. Massage the knuckles and in-between knuckle area first. Continue thumb massaging each area on the back of the hand. Reverse and repeat this process on your right hand.


Cradle your left wrist (palm up) inside your right hand. Use your thumb to massage your inner wrist. This is an especially soothing massage for anyone who routinely uses their wrists in repetitive movements, such as computer work. Reverse and repeat this process on your right hand.


Massage the palm of your left hand with your right thumb. Massage the fleshier mound areas more deeply. Reverse and repeat this process on your right hand.

At the end of the session press your right thumb deeply in the centre of your left palm.

Reverse and repeat this process on your right hand. Take a few deep breaths and centre yourself.
