After pouring some amount of oil onto a steel small kadai ; To warm the oil, I place the steel kauai on top of running water for few minutes and this way oil gets slightly warmer. My Japa maid use this oil to massage my little ones and they really love the oil massage that they remain less cranky. After leaving the oil about 10 minutes on their body, she washes off using Luke warm water a gentle body cleanser. For my kids – We use Sebamed/Moms Co / Babo Botanicals wash depending on the climate.
