Self-oleation is one of my favourite ayurvedic self-care practices.

Also called sneha (meaning both “oil” and “love”), it is a practice which is believed to have effects similar to being saturated by love : it is deeply healing, nourishing, strengthening and beautifying to all aspects of you.

“By using oil massage daily, a person is endowed with pleasant touch, trimmed body parts and becomes strong, charming and least affected by old age”  – Charaka Samhita
