Edible Massage Lotion

Massage is something I do lot of for Master.  Generally I use a non-edible massage oil, but there are times when a little edible version is handy.  Over the years, I've purchased commercial versions but they generally come in bottles larger than i can use before they expire.  We used some after the expiration date once and it made me a little ill and so i've been gun shy since. 

Well I set about making my own version.  I looked at several different recipes and in the end did a little combination of several.  It works well and doesn't make too much that it'll spoil before you can use it all.  Also you can make it any flavor you desire, which is always a bonus.

The ingredients are simple enough and relatively easy to find.

Edible Massage Lotion
  • 1/4 Cup Vegetable Glyerine (very important to find an edible or food grade glycerine)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Honey (depending on how sweet you want it)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Flavoring Extract (vanilla, almond, chocolate, coconut, etc.)
Whisk everything together and store in an airtight container.  Use like any massage lotion but lick it off when you're done.

Note: I'd be careful with flavors like mint or cinnamon, they might add a tingle that could either be pleasing or uncomfortable depending on a person's skin.

Again, I can't stress how important it is to find edible/food grade glycerine.  The bottle should tell you so:

I think this could make a fun wedding / bridal shower gift too. 


  1. Oh I so want to try this! :) Thank you katie!

  2. That's great. I guess it's more affordable than commercial stuff. Is it «messy» or easily penetrates the skin? And is it «good» for the skin (unless there is irritation)?
    Thanks for the idea!

  3. Ric - it's not any messier than any other kind of lotion - a little goes a long way though and it does penetrate the skin. Master's feet are much smoother after i use it there and He hasn't had any kind of irritation from it, i imagine that totally depends on the person.

  4. Thanks Katie for the info. Have a nice day!
