Tei-Fu Massage Lotion Recipe

Tei-Fu Massage Lotion is a unique blend of anciently-known essential oils and skin emollients. It applies smoothly to the skin and penetrates deeply into stiff muscles and joints. Its emollient, greaseless properties leave the skin soft and smooth.

The origin of the Tei Fu essential oil blend dates back more than 1,000 years to the era of the Tong Dynasty. A famous Chinese herbalist brought the ancient formula for the deep penetrating blend to the U.S. several years ago. NSP Tei Fu Lotion provides all of the benefits of Tei Fu Essential Oils, but in a creamy lotion form.

The Tei Fu formula was developed and perfected by a Chinese herbalist several decades ago. He created it using an ancient formula that was passed down in his family for more than 1,000 years. His secret formula was not for sale. This descendent realized the benefits of his family secret, and he decided it was too good to keep from others.
