Home Made Baby Massage Oil

Oil massage for babies before giving them a hot bath is a tradition and also directed by the paediatricians. It is a mandatory job of every mother and has been practising from decades ago continuing even to this modern age because your baby feels relaxed and happy when their sensitive skin and bones are massaged. Also massaging promotes the growth of their bones since the oil gets absorbed easily in babies.

There are few tips to be remembered when you massage your baby.
  • Always try the upward strokes
  • Do not use more greasy oil. You might feel easy to massage with the greasy oil but it is not healthy for your baby‘s skin as it clogs the skin pores.  
  • Do not spill water to the oil. Discard if the oil is mixed with water as it is not hygiene.
  • Try to wash out all the oil applied using a mild baby soap as it helps to wash away dirt and sweat particles.
This was all the points I follow while I massage my baby J. Now apart from the branded Baby Massage oils available in the market, I have a homemade baby massage oil followed in our family from generations to generations.

4 to 5 Sambar balli (Indian Borage) leaves

Switch off the flame and cover a lid to the pan. Let it remain still for about 2 hours so that all the essential contents of Sambar balli (Indian Borage) leaves, pepper and rice spreads to the oil.
