I always massage my Babies before bed and it really helps them sleep better. The day I don’t massage them for some reason it becomes very obvious, they either take a long time to sleep or get up too early . There are different blends that can be used for specific concerns like insomnia, eczema, digestive upset, colds, flu etc. In this post I will discuss the Wonderful benefits of Baby Massage and how to make your own Cold and Flu Massage Oil Blend.

DIY Massage Oil Recipe For Colds and Flu

You will need:

1 oz (30ml) Organic Cold Pressed Mustard Oil (buy here)

2 Cloves of Raw Garlic (chopped)

1/2 Tsp. Carom Seeds, also known as Ajwain in Ayurveda (buy here)

Heat Mustard Oil slightly on a low flame, add garlic and carom seeds and let it heat for about 30 seconds. Massage your Baby with this oil specially on the chest, head and soles of the feet.

According to Ayurveda the most beneficial baby massage oil is Mustard Oil. Mustard is rich in Magnesium and Omega 3 Fatty Acids and which helps brain health. Mustard oil also has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. It is used extensively in Asia for Post Natal Massage to strengthen a mother’s immune system and help with Post Natal Depression because of its Omega 3 Content. New mothers in Asia (especially in India )also use Mustard Oil as a cooking oil to reap its benefits.

Due to its warming , anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, Mustard oil is an excellent oil to bust cold, cough and flu. Carom seeds have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties and work wonders for colds and flu. Carom seeds are good for your Baby’s digestive system too so it will take care of it if your baby has any digestive upset. Garlic is nature’s most potent antibiotic and using it in a massage oil is a good way to enhance your baby’s immunity.
