Best oils to use for infant massage

When discussing massage oils with parents, I find one of the hardest things for them to figure out is which oils they want to use. The types of oils that are used for baby massage are very highly depending on family traditions, cultural traditions. What we do know in this country is that the only oils that have been clinically proven in a medical setting to be safe are coconut oils, sunflower oils, and cranberry. Oils like grapeseed oil have potential blood thinning properties. Mustard oil has potential damages to the skin. All of these oils have value and are used around the world. But there are really only three that we know for sure are safe.
