I was on the lookout for a massage oil for my baby girl when Renji from makeupholicworld.com suggested I try her brand Shesha Beauty’s Virgin Coconut Oil for my daughter’s sensitive skin and also offered to send me a bottle. Before Shesha, I was using food grade olive oil and sometimes Virgin Coconut Oil as my baby’s massage oil. Every now and then, her skin would react badly and there would be a rash either on her temples or the base of neck and it would disappear as soon as I stopped applying oil for a day or two. So again I was a little sceptical about trying a new product on her but Renji convinced me that SHESHA VCO is absolutely the highest grade available and I must try it once and see the results.
The SHESHA NATURALS EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT OIL comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a screw on cap and a plastic stopper underneath. While it should be really easy to use in summers, I had a bit of issue using the product in winters because it was always frozen. Every time I wanted to use the product, I had to keep it under the sun for some time or place the bottle in hot water for some of the oil to melt and become usable. That’s a bit of drawback on the packaging front.
Once molten, the SHESHA NATURALS EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT OIL is a clear, transparent and colourless oil which really looks pure and unadulterated and one wouldn’t shy from using it on baby’s gentle skin. The oil has a really soft and delicate coconut scent thats not at all overpowering and in fact feels quite soothing to the senses. The oil has a lightweight consistency, and spreads evenly on skin and gets absorbed super fast as well. The SHESHA NATURALS EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT OIL keeps my daughter’s sensitive skin moisturised for hours even after a bath after the massage. I have also used it as a hair oil on a few occasions and it does make my hair appear super shiny and soft to touch after overnight oiling and shampoo. The bottle says its best to be used as an edible oil which is one thing I havent tried with this oil since we don’t use coconut oil as a cooking medium. One can also use this oil for Oil pulling and Gum massage as it is completely natural and devoid of any chmicals.
Overall, I feel the SHESHA NATURALS EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT OIL is a very versatile coconut oil that can be used in the same household for various purposes. I am totally enjoying using this oil as a massage oil for my daughter and as a head massage oil for myself. It has never caused any allergies on my little girl’s delicate skin and after a session of hot oil massage and shampoo, it does make my hair look and feel great. Totally recommend using the SHESHA NATURALS EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT OIL for both moms and babies as doctors also recommend Coconut Oils as the first preference for baby massage oils. My only suggestion is perhaps to have a wide mouthed bottle be also available for winters when the oil freezes!
