My Verdict

The base of the oil is sesame (superior oil in Ayurveda), no mineral oil. The oil is very light and nonsticky. It has a lavender aroma, which helps in soothing and relaxing. In Kerala, we use Ayurveda oils for antenatal and postnatal massage, which is usually thick and sticky with coconut as the base. Himalaya toning massage oil can be used during pregnancy, after delivery or anytime. The oil comes in a white non-transparent plastic bottle and the lid is leak proof. It’s clinically tested and the shelf life is 2 years. This oil even out on skin well and gets easily absorbed by the skin. I really loved this Toning massage oil, as it is safe, light and has a soothing fragrance that moisturises and relaxes the body. I am happy to recommend this to other moms.
