Best Sensual Massage Oils 

Here at Tantric Collective, we know a thing or two about the best sensual massage oils. Over the years, we have tried and tested hundreds of products and know what works and doesn’t. With this in mind, we have made a list of our Five Best Sensual Massage oils available on the market now. 

Things to consider.

When choosing an oil or other lubricant, you should always consider the masseuse and the person being treated. Different skin types can react differently to different products, so keep in mind your skin type and any sensitivities you or the other person may have. Let’s assume you don’t have susceptible skin and would like a scented oil for added enjoyment. 


Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils to produce a benefit for the recipient. This happens when the scent of the oils hits the brain and affects the amygdala. This part of the brain is responsible for our emotions. So that’s how they work but which oil is best for which response? Let’s examine some of the most potent and popular essential massage oils. 

  • Lavender – Lavender oil is perfect when you need to relax. It is regularly used to decrease stress and promote good sleep.
  • Tea Tree – Tea Tree oil was discovered by the Aboriginal people of Australia, who used it for its medicinal properties. It is most commonly used to treat skin conditions and insect bites. 
  • Peppermint – An excellent potential reliever for sufferers of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. A powerful antispasmodic can help with stomach cramps, bloating and wind. Significant research now backs up these claims. You can learn more about peppermint oil and its benefits on the NHS website
  • Lemon – Think about your household cleaning products. There is a reason so many of them are lemon or citrus scented. Lemon oil is used as a mood booster. 

Things to look out for

When purchasing essential oils, make sure that they are genuine. A ‘fragranced oil’ or ‘perfume oil’ will not produce the same results as these are essential oils combined with chemicals. Avoid plastic bottles, as the oil can dissolve these over time. Always purchase your oil from a reputable company. 

So far, we have discussed the benefits of essential oils, taking both the masseuse and recipient into account and discussing the pitfalls of purchasing expensive oils. Let’s now look at some of our favourite products on the market and what makes them great. 

Before the guide, check out our Five Best Sensual Massage Oils video on YouTube.

The Five Best Sensual Massage Oils 

Flickering Touch Massage Candle by LELO

High-end pleasure brand Lelo has been making jaw-dropping products for years. If your idea of a vibrator is still a scary-looking phallic object with a small animal sticking out of it, then you need to know about Lelo. The toys are works of art that wouldn’t look out of place in a London boutique, and the massage candle is no exception. This candle melts into a luxurious warm massage oil, available in various scents (our favourite is Snow Pear and Cedarwood). 

Tantric Collective London Tip! 

Light the candle when setting up your pleasure palace and blow it out before the massage begins. Most people aren’t into boiling wax being poured onto their bodies, which will let the oil cool a little before application. Perfectly warm, scented oil will immediately relax both parties and is suitable for even your most intimate areas. 

Sex Oil by DAME

Supercool New York sexual wellness brand DAME is a collaboration between a renowned sexologist and an MIT engineer. The Sandalwood and Cardamom scented oil feels light on the skin and can be used inside and outside the body. Handy if your best massage intentions turn into something more Erotic. DAME products are available in the UK from Selfridges online or in person at their London, Manchester and Birmingham stores.

De-Stress Massage Oil by ELEMIS

A true blend of powerful essential oils, we had to include this ELEMIS oil on our list. This massage oil combines Rosewood, Melissa, Marjoram, Geranium, Rosemary, Lavender and Chamomile essential oils. The result helps to nourish the skin, relax tense muscles and calm the mind. Perfect before bed, though not suitable for intimate areas, so please be careful. All that lavender might make you too snoozy anyway ?

Muscle Ease Body Oil by Anatome

A certified organic oil from Anatome is designed to balance the skin while anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatories and essential fatty acids restore well-being. Apply oils like this immediately after a warm bath or shower for maximum absorption. 

Despite its name, Anatome is a British brand that celebrates the country’s history of apothecary and traditional medicine. They stock a range of products, from massage and essential oils to nutritional supplements, bath salts and accessories. At Tantric Collective, we are yet to find something of theirs that we didn’t love, and we are you. You will feel the same. 

Argan Oil by Various 

Argan Oil is available from various suppliers but makes our list because, for all the luxury products, sometimes simplicity is the key. It was initially produced in Morocco by the Berber community from the tree of the same name. It can be used instead of olive oil or other products with food and increasingly since the early 2000s for cosmetic reasons. Today you can find organ oil in face creams, lip glosses, shampoos, moisturisers and soaps. Argan Oil is incredibly high in vitamin E, which boosts the immune system and helps repair eyes and skin. The essential fatty acids help to increase good cholesterol and can help reduce your risk of heart disease. When it comes to finding a wallet-friendly sensual massage oil the competes with the very best, Argan Oil is the natural choice. 

In Conclusion

So there you have Tantric Collective's five best sensual massage oils. Some are very expensive, and some can cost as little as a few pounds. 

Our masseuses are experts in their craft and, as such, select their oils. At the start of your erotic massage session, you will be offered a range of options and given guidance on the properties of each. With this little guide in mind, you will now be able to make an educated choice the next time you book a massage.
