Storage and Use

You can make this massage oil in advance or just before you plan to use it. It keeps well for months in a cool, dark place, like the refrigerator. Be sure to let it come to room temperature before you use it. If you want to use it for a warm oil massage, you can stand the sealed container in a cup or hot water for ten to twenty minutes before using it as well.
