6 Massage Oils That Give Your Baby The All-Natural Health Boost They Need!

From strengthening bones and muscles to aiding sound sleep, baby massages are a tradition you must keep alive!

Did you know: a child’s skin is five times thinner than an adult’s and absorbs at least 60 per cent of what’s put on it? Which is why, massaging a child regularly is one of the most important rituals that’s followed universally.

Massaging a child regularly has a host of health benefits for the child. It makes their bones stronger, enhances their sleep, tones the body, aids in the advancement of the central nervous system, prevents stomach problems and unclogs sinuses among others.

Here are some of the best oils we recommend you use for your baby’s daily massage:
