Why you should use Massage Balms instead of Massage oils for therapy?
Massage balms and oils are similar in that they are oil-based therefore they provide good glide in massage treatments and are nourishing to the skin. So why might Massage balms be better than Massage oils?
Advantages of using Massage balms
They are less messy
Unlike massage oil which is liquid and can spill easily; a Massage balm|wax is solid at room temperature but melts quickly into the skin. You don’t need to worry about a massage balm leaking in your bag or being knocked over and spilling on the floor. This also means fewer stains on towels. Although it is solid at room temperature, massage waxes warm up quickly, making them very easy to use.
They last longer
The viscosity of Massage balms makes it much easier for you to control how much balm you take. You can use them sparingly and easily take more when needed. A little goes a long way meaning one tin will last you a long time. On the other hand, massage oils can spill easily, wasting some of the carrier oil. You may also take too much massage oil, which then needs to be thrown away and is money wasted.
They provide more grip
Massage balms|waxes are made with beeswax meaning they have better friction in comparison to massage oils. Because the wax|balm is thicker than oil there is less slip and more grip. This means that Massage and Physiotherapy treatments can be controlled and the therapist can do deeper manipulation of the deep tissue and fascia. This is perfect for a variety of massages including Sports massage, Physiotherapy, and also Deep Tissue massage.
They also have the perfect consistency to use in Reflexology, Indian head massage, and Thai Foot Massage treatments.
Their packaging may be better for the environment
Massage balm|wax is solid at room temperature so it can be packaged in recyclable packaging such as tins. As they don’t require a pump or a plastic cap they also often need less packaging overall than oils.
Me Time Massage Balms are in aluminum tins that can be reused or recycled so therefore kinder to the environment.

This is my first time buying the product. And I’m not disappointed at all it’s everything what need. It’s provides enough glide but with good grip when needed. Brilliant for reflexology. I love the brands ethos and quality. And they can tell you exactly what in the product. 100% my new top reflexology balm.
I am very happy with this balm and using it for reflexology treatments, it is perfect and smells lovely not too strong and easy to work with. I chose it because it’s hand made in Scotland and I love to support small businesses.
I am a massage therapist and highly recommend. Absolutely an amazing product. Not only kind to the skin but amazing to massage with.
What is a Massage Balm?
By applying a Massage balm topically to the skin for Massage or Reflexology, it is easily absorbed into the client’s skin and helps to reduce friction. Massage creams can dry in too quickly and the Therapist needs to interrupt the flow of the Massage to re-apply. Massage oils can be messy.
For mobile Therapists/Beauty Therapists, the advantage of Massage waxes is that they are pre-blended with Aromatherapy oils to suit clients’ needs. Unlike Massage oil, Massage balms won’t spill in their bag and are lighter to carry than the combination of Massage oils & Aromatherapy oils.
