What Massage Oil to use in Hilot?
There are many massage oils that are available in the market now-a-days but not all of it are advisable to use. Most of the massage oils that being sold are made of Mineral oil but in hilot we discourage the use of Mineral oil but use Nutritive Oil instead.
Hilot Massage uses oil not only for the lubrication of the skin but it also have the function of nourishing the body through topical application of the Nutritive oil towards the skin. The best massage oil that hilot could use are the nutritive ones or the oil that can also be taken internally as a food like vegetable oil. This is why Hilot recommend the use of Virgin Coconut Oil in massage. But if VCO is not availble, any vegetable oil is applicable to use.
