The aforementioned phrase from an Ayurvedic textbook captures the many benefits of using a body massage oil daily.
Before spas became popular, the art of massaging self with oil, also known as Abhyanga, was practiced extensively by people.
Even today, body massage is considered a powerful healing technique in Ayurveda. A good oil massage releases the accumulated stress and toxins from the body, leaving you feeling energized and rejuvenated.

My favourite massage oil is the Lavender massage oil from the brand Indrani cosmetics
Every drop of lavender oil will walk you through a sea of purple and bewitched lavender flowers.
It has unique calming and relaxing qualities.
This oil is obtained from Lavandula Angustifolia which helps in soothing skin irritation, redness, inflammation, swelling, and also the after-effects of hair removal techniques like waxing or threading.
It has a soothing fragrance
It helps in soaking away stress and corrects sleeplessness.
It also helps in relieving fatigue and anxiety.
Try massaging your skin atleast thrice a week and see the results for yourself.
