you can make scented oils out of any herbs/spices and oil.  it's just like making tea: heat oil a little (don't boil {fire hazard}, just warm is fine) then pour over loose herbs. allow to soak for a few hours and strain out.  you can also not heat the oil and then just leave the mixture for about a week instead.   
that said, higher quality oil will be better,  almond oil is the best for most people, virgin olive oil might be in your kitchen anyway.  other quality cooking oils like grapeseed are good too, don't use anything that smells!   
Whole spices like cinnamon sticks, cloves, and nutmeg are yummy, but don't go too strong on these, because they will heat up your skin.  If you have a garden, you can use flower petals.  Roses, lavender, juniper berries, citrus peels...   make a little batch and keep it in a cool place.
be sure to test a little on your skin before doing a whole massage in case you react to any of the ingredients.

i like to mix my favorite lotion with infuesed oils.

i love being bergamont corriander lotion, from bath and body works. i put almond oil in a jar with orange peels, and sqeeze some the actuall oranges juices. just a bit of juice.  let it sit aobut a week or two depending on how strong u want it. then take the peels out, mix with lotion till u get the consistancy u want, i dont like anything that is too oily even message oil. i like products to dry fast on my skin. this has the same effect as meassagingoil, but will dry faster and smell better.
