5 Best Natural Baby Massage Oils & Benefits

Baby massage with natural oils has surplus benefits to the baby and is also about nurturing an emotional bond with the little one.

 

Age-Old Tradition:

Infant massage is the age-old custom that is practiced to date as it aids in improving the physical development in babies. The knowledge about the proper massaging technique is very important.

 

Massage Timings:

The best time for infant massage is within the first three months as the development process begins and progresses at a faster pace. Massage to be done for the baby on an empty stomach as all the muscles and limbs are bent plus exercises are done so that muscles get strong. If the baby is fed just before the massage, the baby may vomit or feel uneasy during the massage time.

 

Proper Technique of Massage

The oil massage is done with very light hands keeping in mind proper strokes from head to toe. Massaging the baby with gentle hands not only relaxes the baby but also activates the development of healthy muscles and bones. Massaging a baby with ayurvedic body massage oil not only builds strong muscles but also develops a bond between baby and parent.

 

Emotional Bond building

Other than physical benefits massaging aids in intellectual development too. Massaging relaxes the baby thus improving sleep patterns and blood circulation. The beautiful connection between mother and child during the massaging process is something to cherish for.

 

Picking Best Massage Oil

The most important part of the massage is to pick the right massage oil that best suits the baby's skin requirements. Organic or natural ingredients infused oils are mostly preferred as such baby oil for skin nurtures the body too. One should also keep in mind the change in the season while choosing a baby massage oil. Like for example pick a rich moisture oil during winters and a light non-greasy oil during the summer season.

Now, let us see the best baby massage oils to pick from the 5 best baby oils for massaging toddlers are here to list.

 

 

1.  Mother Sparsh Baby Massage Oil:

Mother Sparsh has the natural ingredients infused ayurvedic baby massage oil helps the baby's skin look radiant, healthy, and supple. Taking the goodness of nature that is blended with essential oils such as Almond, Coconut, Sesame, Avocado, Olive, Jojoba oils, and herbs such as Shankhpushpi, Durva, Ashwagandha, Tagar, Tamalpatra.


Mother Sparsh baby massage oil is loaded with the goodness of almond oil, coconut oil, sesame oil, and avocado oil. Massaging the baby with natural oil enriched ingredients helps improve digestion, gain weight, improves blood circulation, and builds strong bones and muscles. I personally like this oil as it has the mildest fragrance and has the richness of Ayurveda filled in it with a blend of herbs and oils.

 

Mother Sparsh Massage oil - MeenalSonal


This Ayurvedic formulation contains a blend of herbs carefully chosen to nourish the baby's skin and helps to gain faster mobility as it strengthens muscles in babies. The combination of 18 herbs and essential oils for babies is well suited for all skin types and gets easily blended and absorbed faster. 

 

When you have a pure baby massage oil that nourishes the baby's skin plus being gentle on the skin then it is surely the first choice. A combination of oils is what I look up in this oil as one cannot have gathered all oils for the massage but this Mother Sparsh massage oil does that for you.

 

Priced at 399 for 100ml, this massage oil is good for value, plus your check at the amazing discounts on popular e-commerce websites.

 

2. Himalaya Herbal baby massage oil:

The light and non-staining formula of the oil can be used both for massaging and moisturizing baby skin after bath.



Himalaya herbal vegetable massage oil is free from any toxins too. It is clinically tested for efficacy and is free from mineral oil and lanolin. Massaging with this oil moisturizes and softens gentle baby skin. The oil is perfect for the summer season; it leaves less oily texture on the skin as it absorbs by the body. I prefer to use this oil in the summer season, as oil is absorbed by the body and leaves baby skin soft and oil-free so that child also feels fresh and airy.

 

This baby oil has a mild fragrance that gels well with my baby, and it is priced at 175 for a 200 ml bottle. 

 

3. Dabur Lal tel :

The Dabur Lal tel is an Ayurvedic formula that helps in the physical development of the child.


It is loaded with natural ingredients that are safe for sensitive baby skin. Messaging the baby with this oil helps stimulate the growth of strong muscles. Also helps in boosting better sleeping patterns and appetite in babies. This ayurvedic massage oil can be beneficial for babies up to 2 years.

 

The oil has a strong fragrance and can be used if the baby is not very sensitive to the smell. It is a cute little bottle that is easy to carry in a baby pouch priced at 85 for a 100 ml bottle. Don’t forget to check further discounts on websites.

 

4. Lotus Herbals Baby plus eternal love massage oil: 

Lotus herbal botanical massage oil contributes to the well-being of the baby.


This oil is infused with rare plant herbs, flower extracts that stimulate the developmental process in babies. The natural formula keeps the baby skin supple and soft plus this oil is clinically tested for sensitive skin.

 

This oil is best for baby massage in the winter season as it retains the oil in the body for a longer time and retains the moisture of the skin. The cute little upside-down baby on the yellow bottle is sure eye-catch for the baby to play too. It is priced at 325 for 200 ml. You can avail best deals on websites and get the best price for the product.

 

5. Baby Dove rich moisture baby massage oil:

Dove massage oil helps lock moisture and prevent the baby's skin from drying.


Sensitive baby skin is prone to lose moisture faster which results in dryness and rash. Dove has come up with a massage oil formula that locks moisture all day long. It deeply penetrates baby skin making it soft and supple. This massage oil has no parabens and is chemical-free to use on sensitive skin too. Priced at 199 for 200 ml, this can be your choice too and look for further discounts on this product too.


Massaging for children age 2-6 years with natural baby massage oil can be beneficial too, as they are highly active in their entire daily routine. Rubbing baby massage oil on their feet in circular motion relaxes the muscles and regulates the blood flow. We as parents need to be more active when kids are hyperactive so keep yourself fit too with regular exercises and healthy food.

I am sure after reading about all the massage oils, you can choose the best one for your child as per the skin texture and the season. Massaging also creates a bond between mother/ grandmother and child. I sometimes massage my child's feet though she is a toddler now that of course makes her bouncier and more energetic. We also do some fun exercises at massage time that breaks the house into a series of laughter.
