Farrell – Pure Olive Oil review

Farrell – Pure Olive Oil review

Like all concerned moms I thought a lot about the massage oil that I would use for my baby.  In India it is a tradition to massage the child before his or her bath.  One can argue about it as there are many myths surrounding this notion.  I too was apprehensive about it.
An aunt of mine told me that olive oil will darken the skin of my child and that was enough for me to avoid olive oil until the pediatrician told me that babies begin to look darker after few days because of the weight that they lose.  Olive oil is one oil that is not likely to cause allergic reactions.  It has medicinal value and is good for babies as it prevents diaper rash, baby acne and makes the skin of the baby soft .

Farrell - Pure Olive Oil review+olive oil to massage baby

This is what the company Jindal claims:-


Farrell Pure olive oil is a magical oil that has fat composition very similar to human skin.  It rarely causes allergic irritations.  It is also pure and unmixed with any other substance.  Produced from the finest quality of hand picked olives, it has the perfect aroma and flavour to dress up your food with a distinctive presence.  Best for flavouring, condiments in salads, pasta, rice, vegetables, meat and fish, it is also used for making cold sauce, crushing ingredients and preparing carpacclo or marinated dishes.

Farrell Pure Olive Oil is also an excellent choice for baby massage as it is a natural oil, contains no additives, preservatives and can be easily absorbed by the baby’s sensitive skin.

  • Quantity – 200ml

Oils labeled as Pure olive oil or Olive oil are usually a blend of refined and virgin production oil.  In the past I used both Figaro as well Farrell.  I found Farrell equally good if not better.  There are people who say that one should not use olive oil on a baby’s hair and since I was not sure about it I decided to use almond oil instead.  I find farrell light and with better absorption.  My daughter’s skin is soft and it has not got any darker yet.

Here are a few things to keep in mind while massaging a baby/Baby Massage Tips

  • Buy reputed brands.  Loose oil or unbranded oil can becoming rancid from oxidation and lead to infection in the baby.
  • No matter how much you are advised about it, REFRAIN from putting oil into the baby’s ear canal and nose.
  • Learn the proper technique of massaging a child before you try it.  You could do some serious damage to your child’s delicate body otherwise. youtube probably has videos on the same if you have no one to guide you.
  • I prefer not to massage my baby when she’s had a vaccination as I fear she may get an infection.
  • After you are done with the oild massage make sure you bathe the baby well as it make cause clogging of pores.  You may notice small white or red colour acne after that.

Massaging with extra virgin coconut oil in summer (In India) is considered it to be the best.  Same with sesame oil.  In winter some people use mustard oil known for its heaty properties to keep the body of the baby warm.  Some people in our region add a few cloves of garlic and fenugreek seeds so that it has anti-bacteiral properties which help build the immune system of the baby.

The Jindal Group also makes

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Olive Pomace Oil

As far as Farrell olive oil is concerned I am thinking of switiching to coconut oil before the winter comes.

Which oil do you use on your baby’s body? Have you followed any other age old remedies which have benefited your baby ?


  1. i used Olive Pomace Oil that used to come free wid mammy pokko pants… 😛 i dont know the brand n al.. but it worked fine.. i used to apply and stay in the sun.. n i used to apply it to his hair also.. n his hair s amazing.. u must hav seen on fb.. did no harm.. never use the J&J oils… they tend to tan.. happened wid one o my nephew.. from then on only olive oil for all the kids in my house.. 🙂

  2. I AM A BIG NO NO FOR J&J PRODUCT but thing is all my relatives have gifted me huge packs of them ..:( not what to do of them 🙁

  3. I want this….

  4. Mom used Figaro olive oil on us as kids and she said that was the best decision she made all those years back going against the traditional options of mustard oil and coconut oil. She said we never “smelled” of oils and our skin always had a healthy glow :). I will give her credit for that :D.
    Quite recently, my sis in law used badam oil on her kids for massage. she seemed to be happy with the results too!

  5. now i know the secret behind of your glowing skin ..Almond oil is great for the skin.i use it to massage my baby feet with it before going to sleep.

  9. hi,

    Is that suggested to use Farrell olive oil for baby’s. As it is mentioned that it is for cooking can we use it for baby also? or do we have any specific oils for baby skins.
