Just before Christmas I treated myself to a Raindrop Massage.  I have been using Young Living essential oils for several years now, but had never had a Raindrop Massage. Raindrop Massage incorporates the principles of massage with the healing power of essential oils.

“Young Living’s proprietary Raindrop Technique® combines unique, targeted massage with pure, authentic essential oils for a deeply harmonizing, rejuvenating, and relaxing experience.”

I live on a farm. Farming is hard work. My back is often in need to adjustment. I visit my chiropractor at least monthly.  The past several months my lower back has been especially tender, even after an adjustment. I decided it was time to experience a Raindrop massage.


Similar to traditional massage the setting is calm and soothing. Quiet music. Soothing smell of essential oils. Dim lighting. Warm blanket.

The experience starts with essential oils being applied to the feet.  The oils are applied in the same order as on the back.

Next you lie face down. The oils are dripped onto your back from the lower back up to the neck. After each oil, the massage therapist lightly strokes along the spine, bottom to top.  The 7 essential oils and 2 blends used are:


Basil Ocimum basilicum (Basil) oil,

Cypress Cupressus sempervirens (Cypress) leaf/nut/stem oil

Marjoram Origanum majorana (Marjoram) leaf oil

Oregano Origanum vulgare (Oregano) oil

Peppermint Mentha piperita (Peppermint) oil

Thyme Thymus vulgaris (Thyme) oil

Wintergreen Gaultheria procumbens (Wintergreen) leaf oil

 Young Living Essential Blends

Aroma Siez™ Ocimum basilicum (Basil) oil, Origanum majorana (Marjoram) leaf oil, Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender) oil, Mentha piperita (Peppermint) oil, Cupressus sempervirens leaf/nut/stem oil

Valor® Caprylic/capric Triglyceride, Picea mariana (Spruce) leaf oil, Aniba rosaeodora (Rosewood) wood oil, Tanacetum annuum (Blue tansy) flower oil, Boswellia carteri (Frankincense) oil

Once all the oils have been applied warm towels are placed over your back. And you rest.

It was an amazing hour of pure rest.
