SONGBIRD MASSAGE WAXES

Scroll to find out more about each blend.

UNSCENTED

 The Unscented Massage Wax has no essential oils in the formula, but in all other respects is exactly the same as the others in the range. The consistency, performance and viscosity is the same as the other Massage Waxes.


Unscented Massage Wax is popular with aromatherapists who love the Massage Wax, but choose to create their own blends for their clients rather than use our pre-blended massage waxes. It is easy to gently heat the unscented wax, stir in the essential oils of your choice, and let it cool where it will again move to the convenient semi-solid state. The wax melts at a similar temperature to chocolate.

It is also useful for therapists who don't want to use the blends as they prefer unscented mediums, and for schools and colleges who are teaching unqualified students and want to avoid essential oils in the teaching methodology.

However, our biggest demand for the Songbird Unscented Massage Wax is simply from those who prefer the massage waxes to other mediums, but don't want a scent in the treatment.

100% Natural Ingredients: Almond Oil, Olive Oil, Beeswax, Arnica Flower Extract, Natural Vitamin E

 

SPORTS

 
Sports Massage Wax is our most popular wax and is used by many therapists involved in Sports and Remedial Massage, as well as by many Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and sports professionals. It is one of the original waxes from New Zealand and has been used by professionals for more than 20 years. It is being used for massage work on players in Premiership football, international rugby, cricket, swimming, ice-hockey, softball, track athletics, rowing and on jockeys - and these are the ones we know about! It was also used at the last two Football World Cups and at the 2012 Olympics...

Another reason why therapists use the Sports blend, even those who are not practising Sports Massage, is that it has a lemony/leathery scent - making it neither herbal or floral and so excellent for use on male and female clients without the issue of a 'female' or 'male' scent.

The essential oils in this formula are Manuka (Leptospermum Scoperium) from the same plant as Manuka honey, and Lemon (Citrus limonum). We use a high quality Calendula Paste which we bring in from New Zealand. Hypericum (St Johns Wort) is also in Songbird Sports Massage Wax.

Manuka essential oil comes from New Zealand as well of course, and has a long history of use by the Maori people and is sometimes called the New Zealand Tea Tree Oil.

Songbird Sports Massage Wax is a blend which is an excellent pre and post event massage medium.

If you are looking for an even stronger grip, you could try the Fascial Release Wax, as it's similar in terms of ingredients, but has a stronger and tighter grip than Sports and is ideal for Fascial Release work and deep tissue work which needs a deeper, slower and more controlled performance.
100% Natural Ingredients: Almond Oil, Olive Oil, Beeswax, Essential Oil of Lemon, Essential Oil of Manuka, Natural Vitamin E, Arnica Flower Extract, Calendula Flower Extract, Hypericum Extract

 

WOMEN'S BLEND

Women's Blend is a balancing blend of essential oils which has proved very popular and is one of our biggest sellers. 
The scent which is most likely to come to the fore when inhaling the blend is the Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) but this is balanced by the musky and regal Frankincense (Boswelli Carterii), which balances it out perfectly. It's this balance which makes Women's Blend really special.

Bergamot (Citrus Bergamia) has a citrusy aroma which is very pleasant and is one of the most uplifting of the essential oils and thus of great benefit in lifting the spirits.

The blend is meant to be balancing, and is synergistically created for this effect. All the essential oils used are associated with and are particularly relevant to women of all ages.


100% Natural Ingredients: Almond Oil, Olive Oil, Beeswax, Essential Oil of Frankincense, Essential Oil of Geranium, Essential Oil of Lavender, Essential Oil of Bergamot. Arnica Flower Extract, Natural Vitamin E

 

RELAXATION

 Relaxation Massage wax has a particularly unusual scent, best described as a little like straw, a little like grass and a little like earth and vegetation. It is a two step scent - in that to get to the deeply relaxing and earthy combination that the essential oils give, you need to give yourself deeply to the scent and move through the first impressions to the second , very earthy core of the combination. This is the deepest kind of relaxation.

Vetivert (Vetiveria Zizanioides) is a scented grass native to India and Sri Lanka and is botanically related to Lemongrass and Citronella, and as these oils are astringent, it is very good oil for oily skin. It's name means Oil of Tranquility. Part of the earthy quality of the Relaxation Massage Wax comes from the Vetivert, which I personally find has a similarity to Sandalwood.

The grassy notes weave an intricate and delicate tune.

100% Natural Ingredients: Almond Oil, Olive Oil, 
Beeswax, Essential Oil of Vetiver, Essential Oil of Ylang Ylang, Essential Oil of Petitgrain, Arnica Flower Extract, Natural Vitamin E


LAVENDER

Our Lavender Massage Wax is formulated with French Lavender Oil and is one of the most popular massage waxes. This is not surprising as it has been in popular use for a very long time and has been appreciated for its deep and calming scent through the ages. Whilst it is very well known for its scent, it never seems to go out of favour and is loved by men and women, making it a very versatile blend. It's cleansing properties also make it ideal for use as an all over massage wax and we now have the Lavender as a Reflexology Wax, as it is ideal for that purpose as well.


Our Lavender oil comes from the Drome, Vaucluse and Hautes Alpes region in France, it's high altitude and high quality!


100% Natural Ingredients: Almond Oil, Olive Oil, 
Beeswax, Essential Oil of Lavender, Arnica Flower Extract, Natural Vitamin E 


ORANGE SPICE

 Orange Spice is a citrusy and fun-filled Massage Wax, particularly as it has a very jolly scent and people always comment that it makes them think of Christmas - probably because of the orange in mulled wine and cakes. No wonder then that sales of the Orange Spice always peak during the winter!

Songbird Orange Spice Massage Wax is a good all round massage wax, being liked by both men and women. It is used by a variety of therapists and and is particularly good for those in training, like dancers and athletes. The Nutmeg, Cardomum and Clove Oils add the spice to the formula and they create a gentle warming effect, making it a useful warming massage wax if you don't want to go to the full heat of the Warming and Easing Balm.

Orange Spice, probably becauseof the citrus nature of the essential oils, tends to be the softest massage wax, and some people prefer this in terms of spread during the massage. It is rich, luxuriant, spicy and of course full of citrus aromas.

100% Natural Ingredients: Almond Oil, Olive Oil, Beeswax, 
Essential Oil of Orange, Essential Oil of Mandarin, Essential Oil of Grapefruit, Essential Oil of Cardomum, Essential Oil of Clove Bud, Essential Oil of Nutmeg, Arnica Flower Extract, Natural Vitamin E

 

ZEST

Zest Massage Wax is a light, gentle, refreshing and uplifting citrus massage wax containing Lime and Mandarin. We developed it with the Scottish Charity, Iris Cancer Partnership (SC041853), and a percentage of each tub sold will be donated to their valuable ongoing work of training complimentary therapists to work with cancer patients. As it is light on the essential oil, it falls well below the latest regulatory requirements for a 'leave on' product, making it suitable for pregnancy massage as well. We are sure you'll enjoy the subtle and zesty zing.

100% Natural Ingredients: Almond Oil, Olive Oil, Beeswax, 
Essential Oil of Mandarin, Essential Oil of Lime, Natural Vitamin E
