Oiling the body and face is a procedure that has been used for thousands of years in cosmetology, medicine, and healing rejuvenation techniques worldwide. It could be called the most ancient. The first mentions of oiling are found in the sacred books of various peoples and religions. Read this article to the end and find out how to improve skin condition, well-being and health in 20 minutes a day.
The oiling procedure should be distinct from applying a couple of drops of oil on the face or body in the morning. This more fundamental technique has a healing, rejuvenating effect and works both externally and internally. It affects internal organs, strengthens the protective functions of the immune system, cleanses the body of toxins, balances hormones, and has a soothing effect on the nervous system. It will also not be loudly said that women who practice oiling look decades younger than their real age and suffer less from chronic diseases of the endocrine system.
Would you like to eat your body cream?
As we already learned from the article on psychodermatology, the skin is the largest organ, and everything that gets on our skin should be edible. Think about the composition of your creams. Could you eat them? The skin not only actively absorbs but also transforms everything that gets on it. To be more clear, oiling is not just rubbing the skin with oil but nourishing the inner layers of the body. When we nourish the skin daily, it becomes beautiful, well-groomed, and velvety. But if we stop doing this, the effect will disappear, and the skin will no longer delight us with its beauty. Oiling can be done not only as a full-fledged salon procedure but also as home health care.
It is important to know! Everything that gets on your skin is in your liver in 30 minutes. Keep this in mind when choosing nutritional supplements, cosmetics, shower gel, shampoo, toothpaste, home cleaning products, fragrances, and scented candles.

What is the benefit of daily oiling the body?

Oils are used to treat so many diseases. Also, oil is a conductor of nutrients.

With frequent migraines of different natures and headaches from emotional stress, changes in weather, climatic conditions, and the effect of jet lag when changing time zones.
A prerequisite for oiling will be the choice of oils. Preference should be given only to natural essential oils of cold pressing (extra virgin). Synthetic or hybrid oils are strictly contraindicated for the procedure. Before starting, we recommend that you test for individual intolerance to oils. Apply a small amount of oil to your wrist or neck the day before oiling. It can be used as a base oil by mixing it with other oils. We recommend using coconut oil as the base in this procedure as a last resort, only if you have no other oil.
morning oiling technique
Morning is the best time of the day for oiling. Apply the oil with rubbing and stroking movements on a clean, dry body, as you would normally apply a face cream or body shower gel. The oil should be more than you use for regular skin hydration. The hand should slide over the body. The oil can also be warmed to a temperature slightly higher than your body temperature for a greater therapeutic effect. Particular attention should be paid to the feet, head, and neck. If you have time, heat the oil to 40 – 45 C and pour it over your head from the forehead to the back of the head.
Massage must be done from top to bottom, slowly rubbing oil from head to feet to properly stimulate the lymphatic system, in which the movement is not sharp but rather smooth and harmonious. The lymphatic system stops (freezes) if you make sudden quick movements. Such a mechanism is provided by nature to block the movement of harmful substances through the body in the event of danger. Massage should be performed with fingertips, gently, without pressure on the skin. The desired time is at least 20 minutes. If you do not have morning time, from 5 minutes, there will be an effect.
After the procedure:
- Take a warm shower.
- Do not try to thoroughly wash off the oil from the skin; this is not necessary.
- Just pat your body dry with a towel.
- Using not a terry towel but a waffle towel will be more pleasant.
Evening oiling technique
To the evening oiling procedure, which is no different from the morning one, adding a more thorough oiling of the feet is necessary. For this, in addition to oil, you will need 2-3 tablespoons of sea salt: warm your feet in warm or hot water with sea salt. Steaming should last up to 10-15 minutes. If you have hypertension, then at most 5 minutes. The temperature of the water should not be hot; let it be pleasant.
Then you need to heat the oil (in a water bath or under a tap) and give yourself a foot massage. Massage every finger, every joint. Rub the oil on your feet. At first, the oil can be absorbed very intensively. Don’t let that scare you. Continue oiling; after 10-14 days, your skin will be moisturized, the body will be nourished with useful components, and the skin will take less oil than in the first days.
Leave the oil on for 15-20 minutes. You can blot the excess with a tissue and go to bed. It is advisable to leave the oil on the feet. The effect will be amazing: relaxation, normalization of vascular tone, hydration, nutrition, and the balance of the primary element, “air.”
Contraindications for the oiling procedure
You should not use the oiling procedure or postpone it for reasons: irritation on the skin after using the oil or dermatitis caused by diseases, acne, seborrhea, psoriasis, or other itchy spots. It is believed that oiling improves psoriasis, but no confirmed studies exist on this subject. For psoriasis, doctors recommend using tea tree oil, lavender oil, peppermint oil, and argan oil. Moisturizing the skin in these diseases will only benefit you: they will relieve itching and significantly improve the skin’s condition.
It is also worth skipping oiling procedures if you experience cold symptoms, has an elevated body temperature, internal inflammation, viral infections, or have allergic reactions to certain oils (intolerance). Although no harm or side effects were observed from oiling, in the presence of serious diseases, it is worth consulting with your doctor before the procedure.
We summarize the main aspects so as to make sure to notice the important ones.
Daily oiling of the body brings great benefits to our body, internal organs, and emotional state. Effectively helps fight stress, improves blood circulation, cleanses the lymphatic system, liver, and kidneys, normalizes hormonal levels, and cares for the skin of the face and body, making it deeply hydrated and elastic. And in combination with taking a course of collagen, it effectively slows down the aging process and promotes the production of building material for collagen cells.
