Dear Chithra and friends, Some details are needed regarding oil bath for girls. My new neighbour-to-be has a 7 yr. old cute little girl who has dry skin and some facial hair is also there. So I suggested giving her oil bath, with nallennay-- but I couldn't answer some of her doubts. I vaguely remember my granny giving us an oil-bath, but details have no clue. So I'm putting this query here, 'cos others may also find it useful. 1) How long should oil be left to soak ? 2) Can the kid sit in sun, or will it darken the skin ? 3) Can the oil be put for face also ? If not, how to keep facial hair less and skin soft ? Can she use any cream for face for daily use, for the child ? 4) Which oil is best ? Should it be heated and then applied ? Should anything be added to the oil ? 5) How many times in a week must this be done ? 6) Anything which must not be eaten after oil-bath ? Kindly pour in your advises friends. Thanks & regards.
