Five body massage oils
Post pregnancy “maalish” is a norm in India and I totally think all women need and deserve it after the body feels drained with all the nine month span of hard work! In spite of being 26 years of age, a good time for conception and childbirth, I do feel very drained and weak on the road to recovery…body massage is proving to be of great help to strengthen muscles and alleviate body pain which is mainly muscular. These oils may be great for anyone especially dry skinned girls can use it before a shower for soft skin. my grandmoms preferred coconut oil for application on body in winters since they did not know of body lotions I guess. But for a change, body oils should be tried over lotions even though we can not wear them for long, just before bath can work magic for skin! I found these to be great cuticle oils as well. These oils are listed in order of my preference.
1. Parachute Advansed Ayurvedic Body Oil: Enriched with the goodness of Ayurvedic
ingredients.coconut:nourishes and moisturises; sandal relaxes and rejuvenates; saffron adds radiance and glow; manjistha makes skin soft and flawless.natural sandal fragrance and non sticky
My take: It is true to its non sticky claims though the smell may remind u of agarbatti.i like this product and would repurchase if needed(which I doubt considering I have so many oils :/ ) the ingredient list is too tempting! Gets absorbed very easily.Extremely affordable at Rs 39 only. I doubt the product availability but I picked it up in pune.
2. Himalaya Pain Massage oil: Sweet flag and Ginger:
Relieves body aches and pains: A unique formulation that relieves body aches and pains. Contains sweet flag which has antiseptic and spasmolytic properties and ginger that’s is a stimulant with anti-inflammatory and rubefacient properties and cedarwood that has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties that relieve muscular spasms
Directions for use: apply all over the affected area and gently massage if necessary.follow it with a warm shower.
My take: It’s a great product with a very sweet mild fragrance. The claims are tempting and so are the ingredients. At Rs 60, it’s a great buy. When coupled with massage, its quite relaxing. The consistency is light and is just like baby oil.gets absorbed easily.although it does not have strong effect on pain like a pain balm, I think it has milder action with prolonged use.Again I doubt its availability but hubby discovered it in Chennai.
3. Olive Oil:
I randomly picked up these from a baby products shop. Liking it as of now. Just that I find it too thick for my normal skin.this one is dolce vita for 210 rs and Figaro for rs 94 for that bottle.i did not know of any other renowned brand so just picked up any. With what ever is left I wil try removing stubborn mascaras.
4. Johnson’s baby oil:
At least 8 friends have gifted us baby product sets for our daughter. The baby talc we now have will last us for ten babies but the baby oil can be put to better use like make up removal and massage (wicked mom :vampire: ) this particular one is from singapore and has some mild sweet fragrance to it and I felt may irritate baby skin. it gets absorbed easily.scared to use it for eye makeup removal due to the fragrance.
5. Khadi face and body massage oil with almond oil vitamin e oil sandalwood oil
Rejuventtes the skin removes black spots and gives a fairer complexion when used in pack.direction: massage all over and leave for ten minutes . longer the better a rich baby oil. A natural after shave lotion.
Ingredients: tulsi neem turmeric almond oil vit e oil sandalwood oil
My take: The smell is over the top and gives me chakkar and head ache. I bought it for the claims and just thought it’s a unique product.consistency is towards the thicker side and does not get absorbed easily.Theres is no way I am using it as a baby oil or on the face or in a pack as I have oily skin. my husband does not want to be the experimental subject for trial as an after shave. So before I throw it off sue to its smell, I thought I will give it a shot for body massage. I have no clue what vit e oil is. The multipurpose claims look pompous and the shabby label is an eye sore.At 160 Rs I would never buy it again! I am clue less whether they still have it as I find khadi to have different packaging at various places and I don’t know how many Khadi there are! Considering the smell, you can safely pass this oil.
