Agen­tle mas­sage can give your baby proper nour­ish­ment and calm your lit­tle one’s skin. An oil mas­sage warms and lu­bri­cates the sys­tem and pro­motes healthy cir­cu­la­tion, while also pro­vid­ing sup­port for growth, sleep, and skin pro­tec­tion. There are many oils on the mar­ket to choose from. Pick­ing a cer­ti­fied or­ganic oil as­sures you that your baby is not be­ing ex­posed to pes­ti­cides or other harm­ful chem­i­cals. Ayurveda rec­om­mends avoid­ing min­eral oil as it is de­rived from pe­tro­leum. It is al­ways a safe bet to use plant-based oils like co­conut and olive oil. To save you from the has­sle of pick­ing the right mas­sage oil, we got our hands on a few baby mas­sage oils and found the Azafran Or­gan­ics Baby Mas­sage Oil In A Tube to be one of the best in the range.

The mas­sage oil slides smoothly over the baby’s skin and forms a silky bar­rier to pre­vent ex­cess mois­ture loss and pre­vent the skin from dry­ness and flak­ing.
