When it is about regular massage of babies, there is no question of any doubt about the benefits. However, finding a genuinely true product that comes with no side-effects, it truly a challenge. Hundreds of brands are already available in the market and these brands do every possible thing to win the market share. At the same, I believe, we all know how harmful chemicals are mixed in these products, in order to make them look attractive and aromatic. After learning about the level of damage, these products can cause to the delicate skin of the baby, no one dares to buy them. In such a situation, if it comes to choosing a massage oil, which is completely safe in all terms, I cannot think of any other name than Patanjali’s Shishu Care Massage Oil. I have used this for my infant and today, I would like to review it for you.
Things I Liked In Patanjali Shishu Care Massage Oil
Instead of making its packing designer and colorful, it is kept simple. Patanjali Shishu Care Massage Oil is packed in a very simple, handy and travel-friendly kind of plastic bottle with a flip-open-cap.
The second best thing in the packing is transparency of the bottle. Because of this, you can now be fully aware of how much oil is left in the bottle and when you have to buy a new bottle.
At the back of the bottle, complete information about the ingredients used, quantity and the base material is printed. Apart from this, the direction for using it also there.

Rich with Natural Elements
This oil has been made using many other beneficial oils such as Jojoba oil, almond oil, sunflower oil, mustard oil and cow’s hatred, wheat germ oil and chamomile oil.
Apart from these, this oil is Vitamin-E enriched. So, it would not be wrong to say that for an infant’s massage, this is an unbeatable option.
As I said earlier, most of the other products available in the market are made of harmful chemicals, which can damage the skin of the child.
However, in case of Patanjali’s Shishu Care, you should not be worried about it as it is a completely Ayurvedic product. Although in order to make it aromatic, the artificial fragrance is mixed in it, it is very light and barely bothers the kid.
Earlier, I had used Dabur Laal Oil too. But I had an unpleasant experience as my baby had rashes. I am not saying that Dabur Laal Oil is not a good option, but it was definitely not compatible with my baby’s skin. However, Patanjali’s Shishu Care Massage Oil is completely Ayurveda based, which means it is free from all such side-effects.
Baby’s skin can quickly absorb Patanjali’s Shishu Care Massage Oil and the baby does not feel sticky. Earlier, I had used a few other massage oils, and I experienced that my baby’s skin remained sticky for a long time. But, in this regard, my experience with Patanjali’s Shishu Care Massage Oil is positive.
Compared to other products related to baby’s massage, Patanjali’s Shishu Care Massage Oil is easily available. You can also get it from any chemist shop, Patanjali store or even from any grocery store.
Things I disliked in Patanjali Shishu Care Massage Oil
Old Stock (sometimes)
Because this product is highly demanded, shopkeepers often stock it in abundance. There is a huge possibility that you may get months-old packing of this product. This happened to me as well. Although this product is considered being suitable for use up to 24 months of packing, still months old packing is a decision changer.
That is the only negative according to me.

According to some people, Patanjali’s Shishu Care Massage Oil is not a heavy oil. That’s why some people do not consider it right for children under one year. But, according to me, I would prefer to buy Patanjali’s Shishu Care Massage Oil and not those so-called branded heavy oils that are a mixture of harmful chemicals.
The Best Way To Massage
The way of doing massage, however, can be different from everyone. But, the method I use for the massage of my baby is as follows –
- First of all, make sure that the room in which you are going to massage is warm and at the right temperature. This will not disturb your child while massaging.
- For massage, any time is fine, be it before the bath or after.
- Always use soft-hands for massage. Keep in mind that excess pressure can cause discomfort to the child.
- Trim your nails before the massage, in case you have long ones. It can cause serious damage to the child.
- Keep in mind that during the massage, your child should not try to suck your fingers. Keep your oily hands and finger at a distance from his mouth.
- If your child does not any signs of discomfort, then you can massage for up to 30 minutes.
