Ayurvedic Soap for your Child?s Delicate Skin

Bathe your child using a homemade Ayurveda approved cleanser made from a mixture of milk and chickpea flour as an alternative to chemically processed soaps.

 Chickpea is a good de-tanning agent and cleanses skin beautifully.

● Milk nourishes the skin and keeps it soft and supple.

● Chickpea and milk pudding can also be used as a scrub.

Abhyanga is a part of ancient Ayurvedic medicine that involves massaging the body with different oils. It stimulates blood circulation and calms the nervous system. One of the main benefits of Abhyanga is that the oil rejuvenates and lubricates the skin and tissues.

This practice is very calming to the child’s nervous system. Traditionally, a head massage and a body massage is given to a child 2-3 hours prior to their bath. Ghee, til oil (sesame seed oil) and nariyal oil (coconut oil) are warmed up and massaged onto the scalp.

While bathing your child, use a homemade Ayurveda-approved cleansing agent made from a mixture of milk and chickpea flour (besan). Besan is a good de-tanning agent and cleanses skin beautifully while milk nourishes the skin. Together, they make a good alternative to chemically processed soaps.
