As long as you don't use anything contain silicon or harmful chemicals...
♦ Oil
I think oil is much nicer to use when applying and receiving a massage but the type of oil is also important as they can vary tremendously.

My product of choice is Biotone Advance Massage Cream.  I find it to be user friendly and client friendly.  It's also water-based.  If the client is hairy-bodied, the cream allows for a better glide and prevents tangling.  If find clean-up and stains wash out of the linens easily.I have a few clients that like coconut oil.  It definitely allows for a smooth and quick glide.  Due to staining, I have a couple sets of linens specifically for oil use.  Clean-up can be an additional chore.I use a few (massage) tools-of-the-trade with some athletes to help breakup or flatten tissue.  Tools help save the hands when doing deep tissue work.~~ just sayin'

I often use olive oil on my clients (the best...as it glides easily on all body parts and safe to use...no unpleasant smell) , but some prefer using lotion, powder, or dry.

I like warmed Jajoba oil for relaxation type massage and cream for deep modalities.  Santa Barbara brand makes a butter-like balm that's excellent for deep work.

Pure coconut oil. It's good for you.

I have been using Biotone Dual Purpose Creme for several years.  It provides a great glide on all body types, especially extremely hairy bodies; helps prevent hair from 'matting'.  No fragrant lubricants whatsoever.  I use a couple of different 'nobbler' type tools for deep work.

Coconut oil is wonderful
♦ Oil
any commercial liquid on the body is fine if it is unscented and does not get near the female genitals....
♦ Oil
I am open to most any massage product.
♦ Cream
I do not like the feel of oil at all, it doesnt allow the skin to breathe and it stains anything it touches . Biotone massage cream is the best .
♦ Oil
♦ Shea butter or similar
I use virgin coconut oil, unless my partner/client provides their own. I tend to shy away from products that contain petroleum ingredients or ingredients that I need to lookup in a dictionary.  After all, our skin is the biggest organ and very absorbent.
♦ Nothing (Dry)
It's most important whatever I use that it be unscented, as I'm allergic to fragrances.
♦ Oil
♦ Lotion
Lotion is good for a therapeutic massage and depending on boundaries established, for some sensual massages.  For a sensual massage with few if any boundaries an oil is better if using your body in the massage as it helps in the sliding movement of your body against theirs.
♦ Oil
Oil is the best for body massage. I use other stuff when doing my natural facials.
♦ Oil
I always prefer oil, but am open to trying other techniques.
