Question: Does mustard oil massage to the baby skin cause tanning and darkening the skin tone for life?
Answer: Choosing a massage oil for baby mostly depends on his skin.
If he suffers from dry skin then coconut oil is best, but if you don't want to use coconut during winter you can very well use sesame oil.
You can also use mustard oil , but it's largely avoided due to chances of contamination.
If your baby’s skin is normal to oily then go with olive or almond oil.
