As varied as the types of massages there are - are the many types of massage oils - everything from nut or seed-based oils, olive oils and even oils made from animal products, such as emu.
And then there are the creams, solids or liquids, medicated or un-medicated, as well as scented or unscented oils.
To help break it down - and make this easier - ask what kind of massage do you intend to use the oil for - it does make a difference.
For relaxation massages, oils that are heavier such as olive oil are a good choice because the skin does not absorb them so quickly and they are slipperier when applied.
For sports massages or deep tissue massages, lighter oils like that of grapeseed and creams work the best. The skin absorbs these oils rather quickly and that prevents the masseuse from slipping as they apply more pressure to the tissues but yet allow the hands to glide smoothly enough to prevent any irritation.
While some love the aromatherapy benefits of some fragrant essential oils, others may be overly sensitive to strong scents or certain flower extracts.
Be aware of allergies or extreme sensitivities.
Someone allergic to tree nuts they should avoid using almond oils just the same as one that has allergies to ragweed should avoid oils with chamomile.
If you are using massage oil professionally - gear toward the unscented and lighter oils
If you are choosing an oil for personal use - find a scent you enjoy and a thickness of oil that suits your personal taste.
