Almond Oil for Kids

Parents and skin care experts recommend using almond oil for baby massage. Let us understand it before we delve further into its benefits for the skin, hair, and brain.

1 ▪ It is rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Omega 3 Fatty Acids, And Zinc.
2 ▪ Parents have used it for thousands of years without any reported skin allergies caused by Almond Oil.
3 ▪ Almonds, if consumed orally, can cause an allergic reaction in kids or adults who are allergic to nuts or almonds, to be specific. In such cases, avoid using this oil topically as well unless specifically cleared by your doctor.
4 ▪ This oil is sweet and edible too. Thus, it is non-toxic. While massaging the baby, if there is oil on their hands and they lick them, it will cause no harm unless your baby is allergic to oral consumption of almond oil.

Almond Oil for Baby Benefits

1 ▪ Almond oil is a natural moisturiser for the baby’s skin.
2 ▪ This oil is rich in Vitamins A, B2, B6, D and E. It soothes the skin and keeps skin problems such as rashes, eczema, dry skin, etc., away.
3 ▪ It does not just prevent rashes, as mentioned above; it also helps in soothing and curing existing skin irritation and rashes.
4 ▪ For skin that requires extra nourishment, Almond oil is a natural emollient. In addition, massaging with this helps get rid of dead skin and thus removes impurities from the body’s surface.
5 ▪ Almond oil for babies is also a natural sunscreen unless you are in very harsh sun and prolonged exposure, in which case proper covering and a pediatric-grade sunscreen are required for your baby’s skin.

Benefits Of Almond Oil For Baby Hair

1 ▪ Vitamin E, Potassium, Magnesium, and Omega 3 fatty acids present in Almond oil make it a great hair nourisher.
2 ▪ Almond oil helps in getting rid of the cradle cap from the baby’s scalp.
3 ▪ Using this oil for hair massages will lead to lesser problems in the future, such as dandruff, itchy scalp, hair fall, and premature graying of hair.
4 ▪ Massaging with good oils such as Almond oil improves blood circulation in your baby’s scalp and thus helps them sleep better.
5 ▪ Almond oil softens and strengthens hair from the very first use.

Benefits Of Almond Oil For Baby Heart and Brain Development

You would not be able to start the oral consumption of Almonds or Almond oil for the first six months until you exclusively breastfeed your baby. But once you start solid food, nuts, especially almonds, are a great superfood and a much-needed addition to your baby’s diet. Almonds and its oils have the following benefits for your baby, apart from the advantages mentioned above of this oil for baby skin and hair:

Almond oil contains good fats that help keep cholesterol under control and the heart healthy. In today’s time, when processed and packaged food is becoming accessible and popular for young kids, this oil is an excellent addition to their diet. Research says that almond oil is also beneficial in boosting memory. So, the old saying “Eat almonds, you have exams coming up” exists for all the right reasons in our Indian mom world!

Almonds are loaded with Omega 3 Fatty Acids. That improves brain health. During winter, many parents prefer using natural and cold-pressed Almond oil on their baby’s skin and even on the face instead of applying moisturizer. This keeps the skin supple and hydrated for longer. No matter how you choose to use almond oil for baby skin, hair, or diet, it will benefit them in all forms. Happy Parenting!
