Note – Even though you are on a baby blog, this article “Best Organic Almond Oil Brands in India” is applicable for both Baby as well as Adult usage. I personally have used the brands mentioned below for both my baby as well as for myself.
Massage is one of the best ways to care for and strengthen your baby’s developing body. The key is to choose the right kind of oil for massaging that will give us the desired result. Though there are many massage oils in the market, I personally love the feeling of internal calmness that I feel when I use sweet almond oil on my skin and hair. Hence, I prefer to use it regularly for my baby too.
Since I was buying mainly for my baby, I wanted an oil that is safe and full of nutrition. I did not mind paying a bit extra during the initial days of baby’s development. I hence opted for cold-pressed &/or organic sweet almond oil.
Below is my list of top 3 organic almond oil brands in India. I have reviewed them here to make things easy for you.
