Holly Oil is a manmade product that is
manufactured in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada by All Deep
Neuromuscular Massage. This product was discovered and produced in 1993, with
patents pending. The main drive to develop this unique massage oil
was to create a clear, non-staining, pure oil with unlimited shelf life.
Holly Oil is derived from a pressing
process. The oil comes from the branches and leafs of the holly plant and is
then de-ionized. A water based Vitamin E (Cyclo-Alocaine) is then
added along with Jojoba as a therapeutic moisturizer to add glide.
The oil is not as thick as French Grapeseed of Sweet Almond
which allows you to use less, not more. (Also see

The positive aspects of Holly Oil are that it
is a non-scented , non-staining oil. It will not cause allergic
reactions as it is not a nut based oil. It is the perfect carrier oil
for essential oils and can be stored on a shelf, even after opening.
You will not have to worry about refrigeration as the Holly Oil has an
unlimited shelf life. Mix any Holly Oil and essential oil in small
batches, as the essential oil does have a limited shelf life.
An increasing amount of therapists are now
using Holly Oil, most being referred by other therapists. Holly Oil
will not clog pores or leave an oily residue on the client. It will
be absorbed by the body with no ill effects, similar to the property of a
sweet almond oil.
